Penguins' Crosby early leader in Hart Trophy race


Monday, 11.24.2014 / NHL.com

The Pittsburgh Penguins have been a picture of stability since winning the Stanley Cup in 2009.


But their lack of success in the Stanley Cup Playoffs since that time led to an offseason of drastic change.


General manager Ray Shero, coach Dan Bylsma and assistant coach Tony Granato were let go, while Bylsma's other assistant, Jacques Martin, was reassigned as senior advisor of hockey operations. Jim Rutherford was brought in as general manager and Mike Johnston as coach, defensemen Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik were allowed to leave as free agents, and James Neal was traded to the Nashville Predators for Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling. In all, eight players who took part in at least 41 games last season were not on the opening night roster this season.

MILESTONE NIGHT IN VANCOUVER

Jannik Hansen notched his first NHL hat trick and Bo Horvat recorded three assists and the Vancouver Canucks picked up a 4-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks in Daniel Sedin's 1,000th NHL regular-season game.


* Sedin, who was selected second overall by the Canucks in the 1999 Draft, was recognized for his achievement in a pre-game ceremony. He is the third player in Canucks history to play 1,000 games with the club, following Trevor Linden (1,140) and his twin brother, Henrik Sedin (1,031). Overall, Sedin is the 52nd player in NHL history to play at least 1,000 regular-season games with one franchise.

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks defenseman Clayton Stoner missed the game Sunday at Honda Center against the Arizona Coyotes because of "mild mump-like symptoms," the Ducks announced.


Stoner is not confirmed to have the disease, but he was held out for precautionary reasons, according to the Ducks.

The Buffalo Sabres assigned goaltender Nathan Lieuwen to Rochester of the American Hockey League, the team announced Sunday.


Lieuwen dressed as the backup to Jhonas Enroth for Buffalo's 2-1 win against the Washington Capitals on Saturday. He was recalled from Rochester after Michal Neuvirth sustained a lower-body injury in the Sabres' 4-1 win against the San Jose Sharks on Nov. 18.


Lieuwen is 3-4-0 with a 3.53 goals-against average and a .876 save percentage in 10 games with Rochester.




Sunday Long Read: Flyers' Simmonds gives back


Sunday, 11.23.2014 / NHL.com

Wanda Simmonds remembers the conversation she had one day a few years ago with her son Wayne.


It was before Wayne Simmonds grew into a 6-foot-2, 183-pound forward for the Philadelphia Flyers; before he was a second-round pick (No. 61) by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2007 NHL Draft; even before he was a budding star in the Ontario Hockey League.


It was when Simmonds was an unknown minor player, one of many skating in regional leagues across Canada.


"I said to him, 'There's two things I want to you to do if you ever make it to the NHL,'" she told NHL.com. "'I want you to give back [to your community] and I want you to give to your church.'"


Obedient son that he is, Wayne Simmonds followed his mother's wishes. And the next generation of hockey hopefuls from the Scarborough, Ontario region has benefited from Simmonds keeping his word.




Blues' Shattenkirk 'in tip-top shape' and seeing results


Sunday, 11.23.2014 / NHL.com

ST. LOUIS -- When the horn went off signaling the end of another disappointing finish in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the St. Louis Blues last season, defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk took it as hard as any of his teammates.


For a third straight postseason, the Blues were denied their ultimate goal of competing for a Stanley Cup. In the aftermath, it became evidently clear that change was in order.


General manager Doug Armstrong voiced his disappointment, coach Ken Hitchcock voiced his disappointment and players made the consensus unanimous.


And when push came to shove, Shattenkirk made sure he could do what was necessary to make personal changes for the 2014-15 season.


So far, the results are very much what the Blues felt was possible all along.

The Syracuse Crunch and Utica Comets played in front of 30,715 to set an attendance record for the largest indoor crowd in the United States to attend a professional hockey game Saturday in Syracuse, N.Y.


In the Toyota Frozen Dome Classic, the Crunch, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning, defeated the Comets, a Vancouver Canucks affiliate, 2-1 at the Carrier Dome.




New York Islanders

Billy Smith speaks to Islanders before being honored


Saturday, 11.22.2014 / NHL.com

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Billy Smith still remembers his introduction to Long Island.


"My wife and I were in Connecticut; we were going to play in New Haven. When I got to the rink, my equipment wasn't there. They told me I had to be up here for practice the next morning. I left early, but I had no idea about Long Island," he said Saturday, prior to being honored as part of the Islanders' celebration of their final season at Nassau Coliseum. "I ended up driving all the way to the end of the Island, turned around and drove all the way back and got to the rink. And I still made practice."


That was in 1972, when Smith played 37 games for an expansion team that set NHL records for most losses and fewest points. Eight years later, Smith was in goal at the Coliseum on May 24, 1980, when Bobby Nystrom's overtime goal gave the Islanders their first of four consecutive Stanley Cup championships.


"We had a good group of guys," he said. "We had 16 guys that probably played seven years together, eight years together. You do get to know each other really well."
