Kid is tough.  Took a punch right on the jaw and still put one over Simmonds eye.  I hope he becomes like what Beukeboom was for Leetch.

Actually, that fucking scumbag Matt Johnson has displaced Ulf Samuelsson on my all-time most hated team. I totally forgot about that cheap shot on Beukeboom. Please tell me somebody seriously concussed that motherfucker....

Even though I hate Montreal with a passion ( and to a much lesser extent - Toronto ) it's still a bit sad as a Canadian to look at the NHL standings and not see even one Canadian team currently in a Playoff spot. Right now 7 of the 10 worst overall records belong to Canadian teams. :X

I saw the fight and it was a draw or Simmonds win. Not sure what fight you watched. Simmonds can fight for a guy that is barely 185lbs.

Simmonds early, then McIlrath won with successive blows and bloodying Simmonds face.

Marian Gaborik won't be back in the Los Angeles Kings' lineup any time soon.

Head coach Darryl Sutter said the veteran forward will be out "long term, for sure," according to Lisa Dillman of The Los Angeles Times.

Sutter added that the club hopes Gaborik is able to return in time for the postseason, which begins in mid-April.

The 34-year-old winger was hurt in a knee-on-knee collision with New York Rangers forward Dominic Moore on Friday night. The Kings placed Gaborik on injured reserve one day later.

Another game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, another four-point night for Patrick Kane.

The basement-dwellers of the NHL standings couldn't contain the league's leading scorer once again as the 27-year-old scored a goal and added three helpers in a 7-2 Chicago Blackhawks win, prompting announcer Pat Foley to claim Kane could top 200 points with more games against Toronto.

In the only other meeting between the two teams this season on Jan. 15, Kane scored the first regular-season hat trick of his career and added an assist in a 4-1 win for the Blackhawks. He now has three four-point nights on the season, with his first coming against the Edmonton Oilers in November.

Kane increased his league-leading point total to 82, leaving his nearest competitors for the Art Ross Trophy in his dust. Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn and Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson are tied for second with 63 points.

.@NHLBlackhawks forward @88PKane, the 1st overall pick in the 2007 #NHLDraft, is the 1st from his draft class to record 400 career assists.

— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) February 16, 2016
The victory ends a three-game winless skid for the Blackhawks, and kept them level with the Stars atop the Central Division with 79 points. Scott Darling was stellar for the home side, making 35 saves in the win, while opposing netminder James Reimer struggled with just 25 stops on 32 shots.

— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) February 16, 2016
Andrew Shaw and Duncan Keith both finished with three-point nights. Shaw, Brandon Mashinter, Brent Seabrook, Artemi Panarin, Teuvo Teravainen, and Viktor Svedberg accounted for the Chicago's other six goals.

The Blackhawks will play their next two games on the road, visiting the New York Rangers on Wednesday before taking to the ice outdoors at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday against the Minnesota Wild. The Maple Leafs will begin a four-game homestand against the Rangers on Thursday.

Anders Lindback's season appears to be over.

The Arizona Coyotes goaltender is out indefinitely due to an Achilles injury, and general manager Don Maloney told reporters it's fair to say Lindback will miss the rest of the season, according to Arizona Sports 98.7 FM's Craig Morgan.

Lindback suffered the injury warming up for Monday's game and hasn't played since allowing five goals in a 5-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Feb. 5.

Maloney said more tests are planned and surgery is likely. Lindback went 5-7-1 with a 3.11 GAA and .894 save percentage in 19 games.

The Coyotes recalled goaltender Niklas Treutle from the AHL's Springfield Falcons on Tuesday.

Nathan Schoenfeld, the bank employee who served as Arizona's emergency backup Monday night, practiced with the Coyotes on Tuesday.

The Chicago Blackhawks placed defenseman Rob Scuderi on waivers Tuesday.

The 37-year-old has no points in 17 games since being acquired from the PIttsburgh Penguins for Trevor Daley on Dec. 14.

Scuderi is under contract for this season and the next at a cap hit of $2.25 million. If he clears waivers and gets sent to the AHL, the Blackhawks will save nearly $1 million.

If assigned to AHL, Scuderi will be a $1.3M annual buried cap hit, $950,000 annual savings. #Pens retained $1.125M is unaffected.

Evander Kane took to the ice Tuesday in Ottawa, hours before he'll be watching his Buffalo Sabres take on the Senators from the press box.

The forward will serve a one-game, team-imposed suspension after sleeping in and missing practice Monday following a jaunt to Toronto to take in the previous night's NBA All-Star Game and the ensuing gatherings about town.

Kane met with general manager Tim Murray prior to the optional skate, and then appeared to have been given a heavy workout from the coaching staff.

Terry Murray has begun the skating of 9. Now doing numerous full length of the ice down and backs.

— Paul Hamilton (@pham1717) February 16, 2016
Following the skate, he offered a full apology.

"It's something that never should have happened," Kane told reporters. "It's something that I can promise you won't happen again and it's something I'm definitely going to learn from.

"If you watch me play on the ice, I think I take hockey seriously. But I can take it more seriously."

Sabres captain Brian Gionta admitted to being disappointed in Kane, while continuing to stand behind his teammate.

"Obviously it was disappointing," Gionta said Tuesday, according to Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News. "Guys were there, guys are at practice ready to work and you're missing one of your guys. It's obviously something that happened but we're going to support him to try to rectify the problem."

The veteran, however, stopped short of going too old school.

Gionta on whether Kane needs to dial back on social media: "That's not for me to judge. Completely different generation I guess." #Sabres

— Mike Harrington (@BNHarrington) February 16, 2016
In his first season with the Sabres, Kane has 16 goals and eight assists through 47 games.

He also remains the subject of a sex offense investigation after an allegation was made in late December.

Karri Ramo's season is over.

The Calgary Flames goaltender suffered a torn ACL and meniscus damage to his left knee in a collision with San Jose Sharks forward Joonas Donskoi, and requires season-ending surgery, the team announced.

Ramo has handled primary duties for the Flames since stumbling out of the gates this season, and had been especially strong over the last two-and-a-half months, sporting a .917 save percentage since Dec. 1.

Jonas Hiller and Joni Ortio will man the crease moving forward, and make it more difficult for Brad Treliving to move a goaltender before the deadline.

The early reviews are in: Phil Kessel has been just "OK" in Pittsburgh.

This according to Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford, who this past offseason pulled the trigger on a trade with the Maple Leafs that sent Kasperi Kapanen, Scott Harrington, Nick Spaling, and conditional first- and third-round picks to Toronto in exchange for the offensively gifted winger.

"Phil’s done OK," Rutherford told Michael Traikos of the Toronto Sun. "You always want more from him, because you know what the talent level is and how he can score."

Through 55 games with the Penguins, Kessel has recorded 16 goals and 19 assists, putting him on pace for the lowest full-season goal total since his sophomore year as a member of the Boston Bruins.

His shot rate and shooting percentage numbers are also down, and he's yet to really go on a serious scoring streak with his new club.

Part of the issue was learning to play with superstar centers Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, according to Rutherford. While things didn't fall into place with Crosby, Kessel now seems more at home with Malkin.

"They way over-tried," Rutherford said of Crosby and Kessel playing together early in the year. "They were trying so hard to make that work. I mean they’re both great passers and every time they got the puck they would try to pass it to the other guy, even if that’s not what the play was.

"I believe if Phil went back and played with Sid, now that the experiment happened, they would play fine together. The newness has worn off. But I doubt it will end up that way, because there’s been good chemistry with Malkin and Kessel."

The Penguins are holding onto the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, and a Kessel hot streak down the stretch could be the difference between an early exit and a prolonged postseason run.

not the NHL, but funny video - ooh la la 




Being a referee is rough.
Just ask QMJHL official Dominic Bedard, whose crotch was the victim of a "nearly full" beer can thrown by a fan.
According to Yahoo Sports, 29-year-old Alexandre Perron was not pleased with Bedard calling a roughing penalty on his brother, Francis, so he launched the beverage with a vengeance.
Alexandre was detained and will face a judge on May 10.

Leafs: Staying afloat in the Auston Matthews derby. Adding Matthews to a system with Willie Nylander and Mitch Marner (and a world-class front office) would greatly accelerate the Leafs rebuild.
Pat Kane: Great to see a Buffalo boy leading the NHL in scoring.
Evander Kane: Not sure why all the Sabres fans I know thought acquiring him was a great steal. He's not an elite player, never has been, and his off-ice behavior isn't exactly exemplary.

from tsn.ca:





Calgary Flames defenceman Dennis Wideman has been suspended 20 games by the NHL on Tuesday for his Jan. 27 hit on linesman Don Henderson.

Wideman, 32, is the 12th NHL player to be suspended for physical abuse of an official in the last 15 years. Wideman was quickly suspended indefinitely by the league last week pending a hearing.

Wideman presented his side of the story to the NHL’s hockey operations department in Toronto on Tuesday afternoon. He was accompanied by Flames president Brian Burke, who served as the league’s disciplinarian from 1994 to 1998. Since the hearing took place with Wideman present, the NHL had the option to suspend him more than five games.

Wideman said after last Wednesday’s game that his contact with Henderson was “completely unintentional.” There was no penalty called on the play.

The sequence began when Wideman was checked in the Flames’ end by Nashville Predators forward Miikka Salomaki. On his way to the bench, Wideman extended his arms and made contact with Henderson, who had his back to the defenceman.

Wideman appeared to be woozy after a hard hit from Salomaki. He said he didn’t see Henderson until the last second, which may have been indicated by a small stutter in Wideman’s skates.

“I took a pretty hard hit down in the corner and had some pretty good pain in my shoulder and my neck and I was just trying to get off the ice,” Wideman told reporters on Jan. 27. “I was kind of keeled over and at the last second, I looked up and I saw him and I couldn’t avoid it.”

Under the league’s Rule 40 (Physical Abuse of Officials), Wideman was facing a minimum 10-game suspension, regardless of intent. However, since there was no call on the play, the NHL had more broad powers to suspend Wideman under Rule 28 (Supplementary Discipline), which covers “any offense committed during the course of a game.”

Wideman is now eligible to return to the Flames’ lineup on March 11 when the team hosts the Arizona Coyotes.





NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said he was "troubled" by Dennis Wideman's "total failure to accept any responsibility for his actions" in awritten ruling Wednesday upholding the 20-game suspension assessed to the Calgary Flames defenseman.


Bettman cited a text message Wideman sent to a teammate following his hearing with executive vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell on Feb. 2.
Wideman sent text msg to teammate on Feb. 2: "(t)he only problem and the only reason I'm here is cause the stupid refs and stupid media."
— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) February 17, 2016
The 32-year-old was assessed the 20-game suspension on Feb. 3 for cross-checking linesman Don Henderson in a late January game. Wideman appealed the supplemental discipline at a hearing in New York on Feb. 10.
The NHLPA will file for independent arbitration, which would be a first under the most recent CBA, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
