Vancouver Canucks up 5-0 over the Calgary Flames, after 2 periods. Calgary would have to mount a huge comeback in the 3rd period to keep streak going.  Suffice to say, it's not happening!

Habs did it years ago going into the 3rd against the Rags, so it's possible.

Dominik Hasek calls Ovechkin a 'chicken sh-t', wants NHL to suspend all Russians

After a plea for peace, Ovechkin, who has campaigned for Vladimir Putin in the past, said he still supports his president, but stressed he is an athlete and not in politics.

It's a real tragedy what's happening in Ukraine. Normally i would have said they shouldn't be mixing sports and politics ( even if it's been happening forever) but in this case,,, OV is in a position of influence and he should be using all of it to send Putin a message. He can't be siding with this killer and needs to firmly denounce what he's doing. Any other Russian player in the League should be doing the same if they don't want to be bunched in with this sick individual. Silence should not be an option but i can understand why some would be reluctant to step forward. If a player openly supports Putin then i would agree he needs to be sent home, but to call the guy a chicken shit without knowing his situation is not deserved.

The only reason not to be outspoken is fear of retaliation on family still in Russia. They should be working behind the scene as much as possible to get their loved ones out of that situation.

Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was forced to leave Saturday’s game against the Florida Panthers with an upper-body injury.  Nugent-Hopkins was hit along the boards by Florida’s Ryan Lomberg and appeared to injure his shoulder on the play. The Oilers only had 11 forwards dressed to start the game because they decided to go with seven defencemen.

If Ovechkin made the mistake of condemning Putin, his career would over immediately.  Article has apparently been yanked from the site.

:7013: he;ll be 42 in 2 months . He's not thinking properly if he thinks an N HL team is going to offer him a contract 

 

It appears Sean Avery's comeback is over before it even started.

The ECHL's Orlando Solar Bears released Avery from his standard player contract Friday, two days after signing the deal.

Avery did not appear in any games with the Solar Bears, an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

 

The 41-year-old said Wednesday that signing in the ECHL was a stepping stone to try and return to the NHL next season.

"I've got seven months to be physically ready to walk onto an NHL training camp," Avery said Wednesday. "That is a lot of time based on how I feel right now physically and how I feel on the ice after skating six times after not skating for 10 years. My timing is coming back and it's getting sharper every single time. I can feel it happening."

Avery played 10 NHL seasons with the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, and Dallas Stars, recording 247 points and 1,533 penalty minutes in 580 games. He retired in 2012 and hasn't played competitively since.

Which is probably the reason Ovechkin wants nothing to do with talking about Putin. Ovechkin is one of the most prominent Russian athletes in the world. I doubt he wants to say anything negative because of the impact it might have on his family and friends. TBH, the NHL should maybe consider just not making Russian players available to the media right now. Except Panarin. He doesn't seem to care about putting down Putin.

Yup and it's understandable. We shouldn't be painting all Russian players with the same brush. I imagine it's a sensitive issue with most of them. With that saying,,,, kudos to the Russian citizens who are protesting at the risk of being reprimanded/punished right under Putin's nose. That takes serious courage.

Petteri Lindbohm is returning to the National Hockey League. Fresh off of helping Finland win a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics, the 28-year-old defenseman has inked a deal with the Florida Panthers. Lindbohm must still clear waivers to join the team's active roster.  A native of Helsinki, Lindbohm was a sixth-round pick of the St. Louis Blues in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft and appeared in 40 games over three seasons for the team from 2014 to 2017. He notched two goals and an assist in his time in the NHL. Lindbohm had been playing for Jokerit of the Kontinental Hockey League this past season.  During Finland's run to Olympic gold, Lindbohm had a pair of assists over six games. He was also a member of Finland's gold medal-winning squad at the 2019 IIHF World Hockey Championships in Slovakia.

6'3"  209 pounds. 28yo. left shooting defenseman. Good enough for Florida, good enough for us? Might need a replacement for Big Ben? Unless the Coyotes nab him.

Vancouver Canucks only 3 points out of a wild card spot. It's been tough sledding, but since they recognized an organizational change was required  early enough, they are back to playing meaningful games. I wonder.......................

IIHF has dis-invited Russia from all 2022 championships and is moving the 2023 U20 championship out of Russia. They have also applied sanctions against the Belarus hockey federation.

Hopefully the foreign players in the KHL will be able to get out of Russia and Belarus safely, their pay cheques are in doubt and with the airspace restrictions in place travel is becoming difficult.

Sources saying the Chicago Blackhawks will name Kyle Davidson as the team’s 10th General Manager on Tuesday.

The Chicago Blackhawks have named Kyle Davidson the 10th general manager in team history. This comes after a fallout with former general manager Stan Bowman, which resulted in his resignation in October of 2021.

Brendan Perlini of the Edmonton Oilers has been waived and is available to the rest of the league. This is the second time that Perlini has hit waivers this season, after he cleared in December. The 12th-overall pick from 2014 has been his frustratingly inconsistent self again this season, showing flashes of brilliance too often followed by long stretches of nothing.

I'd take a chance.

The Edmonton Oilers have a lot of things to worry about, and apparently forgetting to tell players that they have been waived is one of them.

On Monday afternoon, the team announced that forward Brendan Perlini was placed on waivers – a very normal transaction considering the 25-year-old has managed to earn just five points in 23 games and was on the waiver wire earlier this season. What isn’t a regular occurrence is having the player’s mother dive deep into the replies of the team’s Twitter account to shame management for lacking some basic communications skills.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed unrestricted free agent forward Bennett MacArthur to a three-year, entry-level contract today vice president and general manager Julien BriseBois announced.  MacArthur, 6-foot-1, 197 pounds, currently plays for Acadie-Bathurst of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and has posted 25 goals and 43 points in 26 games this season. He ranks second on the Titan for goals and fourth for scoring. He's currently tied for fifth in the QMJHL for goals.

This is what I'm talking about.  Right in the Habs back yard! If he's good enough for Tampa?
