Report- Thomas Vanek’s Name Linked To Alleged Gambling Ring
via tweets of Gary Craig, a reporter for the Democrat and Chronicle, Thomas Vanek has been linked to gambling with alleged Rochester ring. Over next few Tweets I'll detail gambling allegations that could point to hockey superstar Thomas Vanek. Records seized from alleged bookmakers show payments from Vanek, sources have said. He testified before grand jury in Rochester. Read more from Craig's recent timeline...

It’s All About Patience For The Colorado Avalanche
from Ryan Boulding of the Avs website, The Colorado Avalanche is 1-0-3 in the last four games, and while the wins haven’t been coming in, the club is still picking up valuable points along the way. That doesn’t mean the team is satisfied.... Although things are trending in the right direction, the Avs are still looking to string together some wins. According to head coach Patrick Roy, that will come with patience. As long as the team can relax, do the work required of the...

More Las Vegas/NHL Talk
from Howard Stutz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, In an interview following MGM Resorts third-quarter earnings conference call, company CFO Dan D’Arrigo said preliminary discussions had taken place with a group interested in housing an NHL team at the MGM-AEG arena, which will have 20,000 seats, along with luxury boxes and other amenities. D’Arrigo didn’t go into details on the talks and whether the group was looking to move an existing NHL team to Las Vegas or see...

Advanced Stats- The Early Z-Score Adjusted FF%
from Stephen Burtch of Sportsnet, First, we account for the league-wide spread in shot attempt differentials in each game state – rarer game states will show a wider spread in results. We then determine a weighted average for every NHL player’s percentage of shot attempts, weighting their results in different situations by the amount of TOI they have played at 5v5 in each game score state (trailing by 2+, trailing by 1, tied, leading by 1, leading by 2+). The resulting st...

Kerry Fraser On “The Blown Call” In The Detroit/Washington Game
from Kerry Fraser of TSN, You weren't the only confused fans when this potential game-changing decision was made by trailing referee Ghislain Hebert to disallow Drew Miller's legitimate goal. Instead of the Wings being credited with scoring the first goal of the game they went on the penalty kill when a phantom goalkeeper interference penalty was assessed to Luke Glendening. There is no way to sugar-coat this blown call. I'm certain the referee would be the first to admit the play di...

Around The Ten Game Mark
The San Jose Sharks have played 11 games, a handful of teams have played 10 and the rest are either at 8 or 9 games played. Yes I know it is early but my early surprise teams are Nashville, Vancouver, New York Islanders and Calgary on the plus side. My surprises on the other end have to be St. Louis, Columbus and Colorado. By far, the Flames are way above my expectations while Colorado has yet to play up to their potential. How about you?  Full NHL standings are below for you to ...

Injuries And Illness Hit The Blues
via Jeremy Rutherford tweets, Backes and Oshie both have concussions.   Lindstrom is out with the bacterial illness. Plus Paul Stastny is still on IR.

Glenn Hall- A Record Which Will Never Be Broken
THIS DAY IN 1962: @NHLBlackhawks goalie Glenn Hall played his 500th consecutive reg. season game, a 5-3 win over NYR. pic.twitter.com/hQb6NFaVy8 — NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) October 30, 2014 Below, watch a Legends of Hockey feature on Glenn Hall. His consecutive game streak ended at 502 and one which will never be broken.

Rest Is Best
from Travis Yost of TSN, The National Hockey League’s scheduling process strikes me as a laborious task. The people responsible for creating the thirty team schedules have to take into account things like venue availability, travel burden, associated costs of travel, and competitive balance, all while trying to squeeze 2,460 games into a seven-month window. One of the things I’ve always found most interesting is how the league attempts to mitigate the number of back-to-ba...

Oilers Having Trouble With Teams In The West
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, The Edmonton Oilers lost 4-1 at home to Nashville on Wednesday night, remaining winless on the season versus teams in the Western Conference but a perfect 4-0-0 against the Eastern Conference. The problem, of course, is the Oilers play more of their games in the West. They'll need to figure out Big Boy hockey if they're going to contend for a playoff spot. Meanwhile, Pekka Rinne improved to 6-1-1 on the season for the Preds, currently sporting a 1.71 goals...

NHL Short Notes
ABDELKADER RALLIES RED WINGS PAST CAPITALS Down 2-1 after 40 minutes, Justin Abdelkader (2-1—3) scored the tying and winning goals in the third period to lift the Red Wings to their first victory in Washington since Dec. 9, 2005 (snapping a 0-3-1 skid).   * Abdelkader recorded his seventh career game-winning goal and second this season. He also scored the overtime winner Oct. 23 vs. PIT – a game in which the Red Wings rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the final three minutes o...

Get The Call Right
from Adam Proteau of The Hockey News, The phrase “the straw that broke the camel’s back” is tossed around too often, but when it comes to expanded video review in the NHL, the goalie interference call assessed to Detroit’s Luke Glendening Wednesday night certainly qualifies. Thankfully, the spectacular botch job didn’t decide the game’s outcome, but the fact a call this bad could be agreed on between two referees should be deeply disconcerting to leagu...

Not A Good Start For The Arizona Coyotes
from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic, Their 31 goals against in eight games became the third-worst mark in the NHL after a season-high seven goals were let in Tuesday against the Lightning, but mix in a pair of six-goal games and the play that led to these routs is becoming more characteristic of the Coyotes than the defense-first identity they targeted in the offseason. "They're certainly concerning," coach Dave Tippett said. "Our defending hasn't been near where it needs to ...

John Moore Should Have Received A Few More Games
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Given Moore’s history, the five-game sentence is probably light by a few games. But a sentence of six games or more would qualify for an appeal to an independent arbiter. And a reduction of the suspension — which would surely be possible, if not likely, given precedent — would not exactly prove a ringing endorsement of Quintal in his first ruling after being named this summer as Brendan Shanahan’s successor as VP of the Depa...

Videos- Two Very Questionable No-Goal Calls Last Night
Detroit/Washington, not only was the goal waived off, but Luke Glendening received 2 minutes for interference...   Glendening getting called for interference. Didn't look like that was the reason for Holtby going down, unless his stick caught him. #Caps — Mike Vogel (@VogsCaps) October 29, 2014     Then in the Nashville/Edmonton game...

Evening Line- Bob McKenzie On Gordie Howe
The entire hockey community is rallying around this.  You can't find a more revered individual, he and Jean Beliveau are the gold standard for gentlemen off the ice and well, Gordie on the ice not so much a gentleman.  Jean Beliveau probably was but just in terms of the way they carried themselves away from the game, everybody in the hockey community has thoughts for Gordie Howe right now. -Bob McKenzie on NBCSN NHL Live pre-game show. added 6:58pm,   WATCH: Bob...

Calgary Flames Recall Markus Granlund, Matt Stajan Goes On IR With Knee Injury
Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today that they have recalled forward Markus Granlund from the Adirondack Flames of the American Hockey League. Granlund, a 21-year-old native of Oulu, Finland has played in eight games with Adirondack this season where he leads the team with three goals and has a pair of assists for five points. He played seven games with Calgary last season scoring his first two NHL goals and adding one assist. The Flames also announced that centre Matt S...

Howe Family Trying To Be Supportive Of Gordie Howe
from Stephen Whyno of the CP, Gordie Howe has a long way to go to recover from a stroke he suffered over the weekend, his son said Wednesday amid an outpouring of support from the hockey community.... "It's a difficult time for Dad," Mark Howe said in a phone interview from Lubbock. "It definitely impacted his life, so we're dealing with this, I think, as all families do and just trying to be there. The best thing we can do is just be here and be supportive and try to keep him in goo...

Afternoon Line- Patrick Roy
"You win two, three, four games in a row and you're back around .600. That should be good. But we need to do that. It's hard to believe today, because there are holes in our game, but it will help us tremendously and I think we're going to win those games." -Patrick Roy, head coach of the Colorado Avalanche.  More on the Avs from Nick Groke of the Denver Post.

Ron Hextall And Dave Nonis Talk The Fight Game
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, "The games are so close," Flyers general manager Ron Hextall told ESPN.com Wednesday. "I think we all weigh on our top players a lot, and at points I think too much, so I think giving your so-called fourth line a couple of extra minutes, or maybe an extra 3-4 minutes, is becoming bigger and bigger. The guys there have to be good hockey players. I'm not saying our guy [Rosehill] that we demoted wasn't a good hockey player, but we were just looking for a few mor...

The Brett Hull Auction
from Jared Clinton of The Hockey News, When you play over 1200 games in the NHL spanning over nearly 20 seasons, win two Stanley Cups, and make a living scoring goals, you’re bound to pick up a few souvenirs along the way. Thanks to one of the most iconic goal-scorers in hockey history, now you can own a little piece of hockey history. Brett Hull, he of over 700 NHL tallies and nearly 1400 points, has teamed up with Classic Auctions to put up for bidding a selection o...

A Look At Jack Eichel
from John Buccigross of ESPN, Jack Eichel is that classic -- often reported as extinct -- middle-class American kid. Oh, and as his BU head coach David Quinn said, "He's a physical freak with strength, vision and an NHL shot." That helps, too. But, as we have seen many times in sports, those skills are not enough. No one does it alone. A lava lamp's function is not to create light, but to create a mood. As your eyes fixate, the unpredictable, syrupy movements put you in a state o...

The 50% Win Rate
from Bruce McCurdy of the Cult of Hockey, Long gone are the days that a .500 record meant a competitive team. That benchmark went the way of the dodo bird when the NHL in its infinite wisdom introduced the concept of a third point for some — but not all — games, back in 1999. After the lockout scrubbed the entire 2004-05 season, the further step was taken of initiating a shootout to ensure that a third point was awarded in every tied game. “No more ties!” promised...

The Growing Trend Of Bigger Goaltenders
from Jamie McLennan of TSN, It's no secret that the league's been trending upwards in the size and strength of players - not to mention an all-time high with skill as well. That said, goaltenders have gone from that short fat kid who couldn't skate (so they throw him in net) to the athletic monster who is not only lean and agile, but covers a ton of square footage even before he puts the gear on.    The evolution of goaltending has been spectacular. Speaking from experi...

Torey Krug Out 2-3 Weeks With Broken Finger
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, Wednesday, October 29, that the club has recalled defensemen Joe Morrow and David Warsofsky from Providence (American Hockey League).  Morrow and Warsofsky will join the team in Wilmington, MA on Wednesday for their 11:30 a.m. practice at Ristuccia Arena and will travel with the team to Buffalo. Chiarelli also announced that defenseman Torey Krug will miss 2-3 weeks with a broken finger. The injury ...

A Fast Start To The Season Is Important
from Adam Gretz of CBS Sports, I went back over the last three full 82-game seasons (I excluded the 48-game lockout shortened season of 2012-13) and looked at how every team did in their first 10 games of the season and whether or not they ended up making the playoffs. Surprisingly, the first 10 games is a pretty solid barometer as to whether or not a team is going to succeed or not in that season. Let's break it down. Over the past three full seasons... - Teams that posted a...

NHL Short Notes
COMEBACKS, GOAL STREAKS HIGHLIGHT TUESDAY’S GAMES Of the 12 games contested Tuesday:   * Eight were tied or within one goal entering the third period (WPG-NYI, LAK-PHI, OTT-CBJ, BUF-TOR, ANA-CHI, STL-DAL, SJS-COL, MTL-CGY).   * Seven resulted in one-goal margins, including four that required extra time (LAK-PHI, STL-DAL, SJS-COL, MTL-CGY).   * Seven teams overcame deficits – at any point in the game – to pick up victories (MIN, WPG, PIT, OTT, DAL, SJS, ...

Who Are the St. Louis Blues?
from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Head coach Ken Hitchcock is at a bit of a loss to figure out just what he's got with his bacterially challenged, banged-up squad as the Blues try to scramble their way through the opening stages of this still-young season. In spite of a 4-3 overtime win over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday that saw the Blues battle back three times from one-goal deficits, Hitchcock wondered aloud if this was going to be a season of challenges after last season saw the Blues g...

The Nashville Predators Are Prepared For Six Game, Thirteen Day Road Trip
from Eric Strongren of The Tennessean, Making road trips successful — beyond winning games — means a grinding schedule for Rogers and assistant equipment manager Jeff Camelio. Early mornings and late nights for the love of the game, often on consecutive days and in different cities hundreds of miles apart. And lots of gear — 1,800 pounds' worth. Rogers and Camelio handle the Predators' equipment in a workshop-like setting at Centennial Sportsplex and Bridgestone Are...

Video- Hit Of The Night, Mark Fistric On Michal Rozsival
The Ducks beat the Blackhawks 1-0.  

Another Bad Loss For The Buffalo Sabres
from John Vogl of the Buffalo News, There have been some horrible, downright despicable performances by the Sabres since they were founded in 1970. Pity anyone who watched one worse than Tuesday’s outing. Buffalo’s 10th game of 2014-15 had folks looking to the calendar to see when this season will be over. Only 24 weeks and 72 games left! Pity anyone who stays with this train wreck the whole way. Goaltender Michal Neuvirth was the only player to show up for the Sa...

More Injuries For The Columbus Blue Jackets
from Shawn Mitchell of Puck-Rakers, Goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will miss 1-2 weeks because of a broken finger suffered on Monday. Defenseman James Wisniewski will likely miss 1-2 weeks because of a broken finger suffered tonight. Center Artem Anisimov will miss an undetermined amount of time after he suffered a blow to the head and left the game for good in the second period. Add them to a list of injured Jackets that already includes Boone Jenner (broken hand), Brandon Dubinsky (abdomi...

Video- LA Kings React To Brayden Schenn’s OT Goal
via Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider, Jonathan Quick, on whether he felt he was pushed into the net: No, I know I was. I didn’t ‘feel.’ I know. So that should be no goal. I don’t know how that goes upstairs and still they get it wrong. I don’t know the excat ruling on that because they seem to change it every year, but usually you’re not allowed to push a goalie into the net, so I don’t know. Maybe they changed it again on us. Darryl Sutter, o...

Evening Line
You find that you have peace of mind and can enjoy yourself, get more sleep, and rest when you know that it was a one hundred percent effort that you gave - win or lose. -You've got to love what you're doing. If you love it, you can overcome any handicap or the soreness or all the aches and pains, and continue to play for a long, long time. -Gordie Howe Thoughts and prayers are with you Gordie.

Job #1 In Toronto, Get Everyone On The Same Page
from Dave Naylor of TSN, As Michael Farber so appropriately pointed out on this past Sunday's edition of TSN The Reporters with Dave Hodge, the Leafs have a parent company whose president and CEO is on his way out, which means that within a matter of days Leafs president Brendan Shanahan will be working for someone who didn't hire him. Which kind fits the theme of this organization since Shanahan didn't hire general manager Dave Nonis, who didn't hire head coach Randy Carlyle, who di...

Cody Hodgson A Key To The Future Of The Buffalo Sabres
from Ryan Dixon of Sportsnet, The ultimate success of Buffalo’s complete reboot will largely be determined by the high-end picks the Sabres have either already made (Sam Reinhart, second overall last June) or are on target to make in the next year or two. That said, players like (Cody) Hodgson, Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno will be huge factors in determining just how fast Buffalo turns the corner, and how far it can go upon getting properly directed. Hodgson has been a partic...

All Colin Hanks
from Mike Botticello of FoxSports, FOX Sports Live caught up with Hanks as he recently dropped the ceremonial first puck at Staples Center and cheered on his beloved defending Stanley Cup champs. FSL:  Given your time there, you had plenty of exposure to it ... what is the main difference in the sports culture of Canada compared to the U.S.? HANKS: Well the hockey coverage ... yeah there's a lot more of it. It's the first 15 minutes on "SportsCentre."  Coming from ...

John Scott Was Just Doing His Job
from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea, “It’s one of those things where he jumped me in the first and didn’t give me a chance, so I was kind of just returning the favor,” Scott said. “I asked him to fight. The situations were eerily similar, so that’s what leaves me scratching my head.” Of course, Jackman also strangely went after Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic earlier in the third period, and that was on Scott’s mind as well when he lega...

Dallas Stars Owner Will Face Sentencing Next Month For Damaging Fish Habitat
from the CP at CBC, The owner of the NHL's Dallas Stars will be sentenced next month for damaging a fish habitat during renovations to his vacation property in Kamloops, B.C. Tom Gaglardi, who also owns the WHL's Kamloops Blazers, is scheduled to learn his fate on Dec. 12. Gaglardi and his company, Northland Properties, were each convicted in August of two counts of harmful alteration of a fish habitat — 2,400 square metres of shoreline area on Kamloops Lake.... Crown l...

Looking Up To Marian Hossa
from Scott Powere of ESPNChicago, Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane was celebrating his own milestone after reaching 500 career points on Sunday, but he preferred to divert the attention to what teammate Marian Hossa was on the verge of accomplishing. “I think a couple games or next game we’ll get an even better milestone when big Hoss reaches a 1,000,” Kane said on Sunday. Kane’s statement was partially about Hossa being two points shy of 1,000 care...

The Los Angeles Kings Will Play A Man Short Tonight
from Lisa Dillman of the LA Times, The Kings were unable to bring up a replacement from the minor leagues for the injured Anze Kopitar and will be forced to play one player short tonight against the Flyers, according to Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi. They landed in this specific situation because of Kopitar’s injury, salary-cap issues and the fact that recently suspended defenseman Slava Voynov’s salary still counts against their cap total. Voynov was suspended inde...

The Nashville Predators Make A Few Roster Moves
from Brooks Bratten at the Predators' website, The Nashville Predators will activate forward Matt Cullen off of injured reserve, making him available for the team’s upcoming road trip that begins Wednesday night in Edmonton. Cullen skated on a regular forward line at Monday’s practice, setting him up for his first game action since suffering an upper-body injury Sept. 24 during a preseason game against Tampa Bay. “We’re anxious to get Matt back in the line...

Early Winners And Losers
from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, WINNERS *Tyler Seguin – the Dallas Stars are struggling defensively as a team, but Seguin has been arguably the best player in the entire league. He’s got six goals and 13 points in eight games, has won 47 percent of his face offs in a big improvement from last season and has two game-winners while topping 19 minutes of ice time per game. You can always make the argument it was never going to happen for him in Boston the way it has in Dallas, b...

Video- Connor McDavid Works Out Under The Eye Of Gary Roberts
via Sportsnet, At the age of 17, Connor McDavid is already under constant pressure, being deemed ‘The Next One,’ on the ice he’s living up to the hype, and off the ice he’s in great hands, as he trains under the tutelage of Gary Roberts.  

About Those Oilers
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, About 10 days ago or so, with the Edmonton Oilers having started the season winless in their first five games, we're told the team's front office held some intense discussions, looking at all kinds of possibilities for action should their miserable start continue. Another October from hell would not be accepted. Four wins in a row later everyone can take a step back and relax. The Oilers shut out Montreal 3-0 on Monday night behind Ben Scrivens. The Oilers...

NHL Short Notes
RANGERS RALLY IN THE THIRD PERIOD TO EDGE WILD Trailing 3-0 after 40 minutes, the Rangers scored five third-period goals – including the tying and winning markers 37 seconds apart – to defeat the Wild.   * According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this marks just the second time in franchise history the Rangers have overcome a 3-0 third-period deficit to win. Their only previous such victory came on Jan. 4, 1956 vs. DET (also 5-4 final score).   * The last time the Rang...

Sergei Bobrovsky Goes On IR With Fractured Finger
COLUMBUS, OHIO - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky on Injured Reserve and added goaltender Anton Forsberg to the roster on emergency recall from the American Hockey League’s Springfield Falcons, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. Bobrovsky suffered a fractured finger when he was struck by a puck in practice on Monday and is expected to miss one to two weeks. He is 4-4-0 with a 2.81 goals-against average and .908 save percentage in ei...

Thoughts On Hockey
from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - The Blues are in an interesting spot. A contender going through some transition. The new setup in goal is well-documented. The defence is reasonably set. What’s getting less attention are the changes up front. Jaden Schwarz is establishing himself as a top scorer. Vladimir Tarasenko is growing from a 15-minute player to a 17-minute player. Once he gets healthy, Paul Stastny will be a major piece. Depending on how this evolves, will Doug Armstr...

NYR John Moore's hearing with @NHLPlayerSafety is believed to be via phone, not in person, which means suspension would be 5 games or less. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) October 28, 2014 John Moore received a two game suspension for this hit during the playoffs last season.

All Daniel Sedin
from Dan Rosen of NHL.com, Hindsight being what it is, do you now know why you guys got away from your game last season? "I think with a new coach coming in you want to buy into the system and all that. Torts never told us to change our game. I think a lot of people think he was the reason we got away from our game, but that wasn't the reason. That was all myself and Henrik. It was our mindset. That was the No. 1 thing. It was more our mindset. The only way for us to be successful is...

NHL Security Meets With The Leafs
from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,  National Hockey League security personnel were at the MasterCard Centre on Monday as part of their team-by-team talk on player safety away from the rink. Years ago, a big part of the lecture had to do with avoiding narcotics, seedy characters and the like, but there has been a shift in recent years to proper protocol on social media, particularly what information a player lets out and avoiding the release of any potentially damaging images....

Cory Schneider Keeps Playing
from Rich Chere of NJ Advance Media, As Schneider gears up for his ninth consecutive start Tuesday night against the Penguins, it is clear that he is getting the work load he craved before agreeing to sign a 7-year, $42 million contract extension with the Devils last summer. It appears likely that he will play at least 70 games if he stays healthy, but is he prepared? “I’m very prepared,” Schneider told NJ Advance Media. “You try to take it game ...

A Look At Ron Hextall In Philadelphia
from Helene Elliott of the LA Times, He's drawing on his experience with the Kings as he tries to fortify the Flyers, who missed the playoffs in the 2012-13 season, were eliminated in the first round last season, and are coping with key injuries on defense. He has borrowed bits of philosophy from Flyers icon Bob Clarke, their senior vice president, and Holmgren, the Flyers' president, as well as from Lombardi. "You've got the two ex-players in 'Clarkie' and 'Homer' and then you get t...

The Streaking Edmonton Oilers
from Joanne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal, The Oilers, 4-4-1, have won four games in a row for the first time since going on a five-game winning streak from March 26-April 3 in the 2012-13 lockout-shortened NHL season. Only seven players in Monday’s lineup played for Edmonton that season. “This taught us a lot about ourselves as a group and how we can play, but the test of a good team is repeatability and consistency. That’s where we’ve set the bar. We&r...

Morning Line- Mats Zuccarello
“That’s the way we should play here at home: Don’t be afraid, and balls out. Sorry for the language, but I mean that’s when we’re one of the best teams in the league, when we play like that.” -Mats Zuccarello of the New York Rangers after defeating the Minnesota Wild in come from behind fashion. Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News has the game recap and post-game reaction. If you missed the game, watch the highlights below...

Video- Dangerous Hit From Chris Kreider On Jonas Brodin
from Michael Russo of Russo Rants, Chris Kreider got booted after he sent Brodin flying face-first into the yellow dasher between the ice and the end boards. In the waning seconds of the first period, Brodin stopped short in front of Kreider at the goal line, but the big Rangers forward dangerously shoved Brodin on the top of the numbers and downward five feet from the end boards. Brodin after the game said it was a hand injury and one of his fingers was wrapped and swollen. more ...
