PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins have placed defenseman Justin Schultz on injured reserve with a lower-body injury. Coach Mike Sullivan said Thursday that Schultz will be out at least two weeks. Schultz left Tuesday night's loss to the New York
Two weeks ago, when the New York Islanders came to Amalie Arena, the Tampa Bay Lightning looked mortal for the first time this season. The Lightning, then 15-2-2, took a 5-3 home loss to the Islanders and would drop three of four games. "Nothing like coming home and getting a win for everybody to start […]
When Ray Shero was hired by the Pittsburgh Penguins back in 2006 he was taking over a team that, even though it had fallen on hard times and had been one of the worst in the league, was on the verge of a breakthrough thanks to a series of top draft picks that brought them […]
Ears perked up on Thursday, as the Anaheim Ducks landed Adam Henrique (and other stuff) from the New Jersey Devils for Sami Vatanen (plus some nicknacks) in another intriguing trade. Sami Vatanen – As much as I love how the Devils are redesigning their team, I’m not so sure what to make about Vatanen from […]
The New York Rangers had a miserable start to the season with losses seven of their first eight games. Friday’s game was probably not as lopsided as the 5-1 final score would indicate (it was 2-1 until there were three minutes remaining in regulation) but Michael Grabner helped turn it into a blowout with a […]

The Devils filled that need Thursday, acquiring Sami Vatanen from the Ducks in a trade that sent forwards Adam Henrique and Joseph Blandisi to Anaheim. The Ducks also get a 2018 third-round pick in the deal and would send back a 2019 or 2020 third-rounder if they're able to re-sign Henrique. Ducks general manager Bob […]
At least that's how coach Jon Cooper saw it. Tampa Bay (16-4-2) is off to the best start in franchise history, but this week lost to the New York Islanders, needed a rally to beat Chicago and then went the final 58 1/2 minutes without a goal against Washington. Devante Smith-Pelly put the Capitals up […]
It might only be late November, but New York Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy knows that winning divisional series can go a long way toward making the Stanley Cup playoffs. ''It's huge, it's a couple extra points that they don't get,'' Leddy said after scoring 2:44 into overtime to give the Islanders a 5-4 overtime victory […]
Last season, it was pretty clear that the Metropolitan Division was the class of the NHL. Such a notion was expressed for reasons beyond the Metro being home to the repeat champion Pittsburgh Penguins, and really going farther than the Washington Capitals repeating as the Presidents’ Trophy winners.
