The Bulletin Board keeps you abreast of the latest news
around the NHL Monday-Friday.
- Winnipeg and Philadelphia played the wildest game of the
season last night. Philadelphia came
back from a 5-1 deficit and at one point scored five unanswered goals, but
Andrew Ladd scored the game-winner for Winnipeg with just over a minute
remaining in regulation to give the Jets an incredible 9-8 victory. The 17 goals scored were the most in a game
since 1996. That was also the last
time a team scored eight goals and lost, as Pittsburgh
fell to San Jose 10-8 on January 13, 1996.
- Philadelphia goalie Ilya Bryzgalov had a tremendous start to
the season, but has a save
percentage of just .827 in his last three games. Bryzgalov shouldered most of the blame for
the loss and was not pleased with himself: "I have zero confidence in
myself right now," he said. "I am terrible. (The offense) scores
eight goals and we are still losing. It's obviously a terrible goalie and
that's me. I am the reason we lost the
game tonight. I am lost in the woods right now."
- Winnipeg had scored 17
goals all season before exploding for nine in 60 minutes.
- Oft-injured goalie Rick DiPietro made his first appearance
of the season last night, relieving
starting goalie Evgeni Nabokov for a shootout against the Pittsburgh
Penguins. Nabokov had made 30 saves on
32 shots but apparently
wasn’t feeling well. DiPietro gave
up a shootout goal to Evgeni Malkin as the Islanders lost to Pittsburgh again.
- Nick Foligno’s goal with 2.5 seconds left in regulation gave
Ottawa a 4-3 win over Florida.
- The surprising Oilers won again, this time a 2-1 victory
over the Washington Capitals. Nikolai
Khabibulin continued his miraculous start, saving 34 of 35 shots to improve to
4-0-2 with a .97 goals against average this season. Edmonton is now 5-2-2.
- Jonathan Quick’s shutout streak was finally snapped after
202:11, but the Los Angeles Kings won again over the Dallas Stars.
- Montreal showed more signs of righting the ship, beating the
Boston Bruins 2-1 to pick up their second-straight win. The Canadiens managed to win even though
Tomas Plekanec won a faceoff behind him that somehow
beat Carey Price. Boston is just
- Kyle Turris has been the subject of trade rumors for months,
but yesterday his agent confirmed that Turris
has asked Phoenix to trade him.
- Unsurprisingly, the Edmonton Oilers won’t
send 2011 first-overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins back to juniors.
- The Toronto Maple Leafs sent top prospect Nazem Kadri to the
Toronto Marlies of the AHL.
- Toronto placed goalie James Reimer on injured reserve with concussion-like symptoms.
- Top Philadelphia prospect Brayden Schenn will miss the next
four-to-six weeks with a broken foot.
- Ottawa’s Peter Regin injured his shoulder again and will miss
the next six-to-eight weeks.
- Mikael Renberg won’t
be joining Eric Lindros at the Winter Classic alumni game in a “Legion of
Doom” line reunion. Renberg currently
works for SVT television in Sweden and will be busy broadcasting the 2012 World
- Wayne Gretzky doesn’t
plan to play in the Winter Classic alumni game for the Rangers. Gretzky said he likes to be around his family
during the holidays.
