Oilers Could No Longer Justify Keeping Chiarelli

On April 24, 2015, the Edmonton Oilers hired Peter Chiarelli to serve as their president of hockey operations and general manager, becoming the sixth individual in that role since the Oilers joined the NHL in 1979. Chiarelli was generally well regarded at the time, having won a Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins in 2011 and reaching another Stanley Cup Final with the team in 2013. The Oilers were certainly excited to have him, with CEO Bob Nicholson noting that “a person of Peter Chiarelli’s cal...

Lehner Conquering Demons and Competition

Robin Lehner may have signed a one-year free-agent contract with the New York Islanders last summer, but the 27-year-old Swede signed a much more important deal with himself. After being let go by the Buffalo Sabres, living through panic attacks, dealing with substance abuse and being diagnosed as bipolar with ADHD, PTSD and trauma, Lehner sought treatment to save himself, his family and his career. He made a pact to live a clean life. The turning point came on Mar. 29 when he asked for help fol...

Blackhawks Beat Islanders – Toews & Kane Score in Shootout

CHICAGO — Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane scored in the shootout to send the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 win over the Islanders on Tuesday night, ending New York’s five-game winning streak. Toews scored on a backhander and Kane beat Robin Lehner between the pads after nearly pulling to a stop. Chicago goalie Cam Ward stopped Josh Bailey and Mathew Barzal to give the Blackhawks their second straight victory following a five-game slide.

Predators’ Laviolette Wins 600th Game

On Jan. 21, Nashville Predators head coach Peter Laviolette won his 600th regular-season game in the National Hockey League. It was also his 211th victory in his 379th game as head coach of the Predators. In a league that has been, and remains, filled with quality head coaches, one might think that winning 600 regular season games is common. That thought would be incorrect. With his 600th win, Peter Laviolette joined an exclusive coaching club. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski) Reaching the 600-win ...

Islanders Getting a Trotz Culture Change

Barry Trotz didn’t scan the rafters for the banner. Back in Washington, he never once looked up for the championship flag hanging high above the home ice of the Capitals. Yet when he turned around for the national anthem, Trotz said he saw the big white letters standing out on the red banner: “STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS 2018” around the Capitals logo. When the anthem was over, he turned back to the visitors’ bench and got back to work on trying to earn some more banners to hang — in New York. New Yo...

Morning Line- Lou Lamoriello

“If somebody had wrote on a piece of paper that you’d have this record at this time of the year, I think you’d sign off right away. I don’t think that’s something you have to apologize for saying.” -Lou Lamoriello, GM of the New York Islanders.  Michael Traikos of the National Post has more on the Islanders.

Kings Rally to Beat Blues – LaDue Gets Winner

LOS ANGELES — Paul LaDue scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period, and the Los Angeles Kings rallied for a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Monday. LaDue, who was playing in only his 15th game this season and first since Dec. 29, snapped a wrist shot from the right faceoff circle past Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington for his second goal of the season. Jonathan Quick stopped 33 shots to earn his 302nd NHL victory, which is fourth-best among U.S.-born goaltenders. Los Ang...

Koskinen Signs Contract Extension With Oilers

The Edmonton Oilers have signed goaltender Mikko Koskinen to a three-year, $13.5 million contract extension, Elliotte Friedman is reporting. The deal will carry a $4.5 million cap hit that will keep the 31-year-old netminder under contract through the 2021-22 season.

4 Questions the Penguins Will Face After the All-Star Break

The Pittsburgh Penguins will head into the 2019 All-Star break with a 26-16-6 record, good for 58 points and fourth place in a tight Metropolitan Division. The team is holding on to the second wild-card spot for dear life despite having the fourth-best goal differential in the Eastern Conference. There’s still plenty of reason to be optimistic about the Penguins though, especially for a team that was tied for the fewest points in the East on Nov. 20. Pittsburgh is home to multiple all-time...

Rangers’ Win Streak Proves Hayes Is No Longer Needed

The New York Rangers have found a second wind, and it comes at a particularly trying time of the season. The Rangers lost Kevin Hayes due to an injury during what became a five-game losing streak. It didn’t seem as though their fortunes would improve much following multiple blowout losses. After a difficult victory versus the New York Islanders, the Rangers proceeded to allow seven goals against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Coach David Quinn was extremely critical of the team’s play, citing ...

CHICAGO — Jonathan Toews had three goals and two assists, Patrick Kane added two goals and two assists, and the Chicago Blackhawks handed the Washington Capitals their season-high fifth consecutive loss with an 8-5 victory on Sunday.

Islanders Blank Ducks for 5th Straight Win

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Cal Clutterbuck scored twice in the first period and Robin Lehner made 19 saves as the New York Islanders downed the Anaheim Ducks 3-0 on Sunday for their fifth straight win. The victory was the 15th in 18 games for the Metropolitan Division-leading Islanders, who have surged past Washington and Columbus over the past month. The Islanders have one game remaining — Tuesday at Chicago — before the All-Star break. Clutterbuck opened the scoring at 4:50 of the first with ...

Emptying the Blue Jackets’ First Half Notebook

We are almost to decision February. The Columbus Blue Jackets finished off game 48 Saturday night in Minnesota hoping to ride the momentum of a win going into their long 10-day break. Instead, their offense went colder than a Minnesota winter and they left important points on the table. Instead of possibly leading the Metro, they trail the New York Islanders by 3 points. And there’s nothing they can do about it for over a week. The Blue Jackets managed to score just two goals in their last two g...

Ducks’ route to comeback attempt clogged up by Islanders’ defensive play

UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Once they got a two-goal lead, the New York Islanders shifted into defense-first mode for the better part of the final two periods of an eventual 3-0 victory Sunday over the Ducks. When they needed to make a push an attempt to get back into the game, the Ducks couldn’t do it. Coach Barry Trotz mastered that style of play for many seasons while coaching the Nashville Predators. He loosened the reins considerable while coaching the Washington Capitals, a far more offensively gift...

New-Look Ducks Down Devils

NEWARK, N.J. — John Gibson made 29 saves and Troy Terry scored his first NHL goal and set up another Saturday, sending the new-look Ducks past the New Jersey Devils 3-2.

Daniel Sprong also had a goal and an assist and Derek Grant, was playing in his second game with the Ducks after being acquired Wednesday, got the insurance goal early in the third period.

Hurricanes Trade Underperforming Rask for Niederreiter

While the hockey media universe talks about the likelihood that the Carolina Hurricanes will move Micheal Ferland, the team made a trade Thursday that few, if any, saw coming. The Hurricanes traded center Victor Rask to the Minnesota Wild for winger Nino Niederreiter. Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell said in a statement announcing the trade, “We’re excited to welcome a proven goal-scorer and veteran presence in Nino Niederreiter. We wish Victor the best moving forward and thank him for his...

Blues Trade Tracker: Who’s Likely to Leave?

The St. Louis Blues are quietly climbing up the standings after three months of wildly disappointing hockey, but before the last few weeks, they were the most widely discussed team in the rumor mill. Reports surfaced that every player might be available and that the Blues would listen to any offer. It’s hard to know what the Blues will or won’t do at the trade deadline, but don’t assume that a brief hot streak will change general manager Doug Armstrong’s plans. He took aim at his core grou...

The New York Islanders Move Into First Place With A Win Over The Washington Capitals

from Andrew Gross of Newsday, Barry Trotz waved to the adoring fans at Capital One Arena as they stood to applaud him, saluted the Capitals’ bench (with Alex Ovechkin leaning over to ask how he liked the video tribute) and then touched his heart during the first-period appreciation of his four seasons in Washington, culminating with the Stanley Cup celebration last June. Then the Islanders put on a defensive clinic — keeping the shots to the outside and limiting the rebounds as a real...

The Buzzer: Greiss shutout gives Trotz win in return to Washington

There was probably a little pressure inside the Islanders dressing room prior to this one. Barry Trotz made his return to Washington for the first time since winning the Stanley Cup as the Capitals bench boss last June. Greiss was instrumental in that, stopping all 19 shots he faced as the Islanders leapfrogged both Washington and Columbus to move into first place in the Metropolitan Division.

Sabres Berglund Tells His Side of the Story

There’s always another side to the story. It’s been a month since Buffalo Sabres forward Patrik Berglund went AWOL on the team, forcing general manager Jason Botterill to immediately move to terminate his contract. Berglund told his side of what happened in candid fashion in an exclusive interview with Hockeypuls SE in Sweden. With no regrets, the Swede has swiftly moved on from his decision to leave the team and has no resentment toward the Sabres organization or any of his former teammates. S...

Bruins’ Rask & Halak Trending in Opposite Directions

Don’t look now but the Boston Bruins appear to have a clear-cut No. 1 goaltender and it isn’t Jaroslav Halak. While Halak has been solid in his first season with the Bruins and has compiled a record of 13-8-2 with the NHL’s fifth-highest goals-against average at 2.46 and ninth-best save percentage of .920, he’s lost momentum as of late. Fortunately for the Bruins, however, Rask has finally found his stride and has established himself as the most reliable option in net for the Bruins over the pas...
