National Hockey Now News

  • Was that the best game Evan Rodrigues has ever played in an Avalanche uniform? There’s a good chance it was. It started early, with a huge hit on his first shift of the game, and it kept going all game long. A great feed to Nichushkin on his goal, and then he sends Vince Dunn flying through the air later in the period, which sent the crowd into a frenzy. [Colorado Avalanche]
  • It’s been a week since the Pittsburgh Penguins told Ron Hextall and Brian Burke their services were no longer required. The move seemed to be going down last Thursday night during the Penguins’ regular-season finale in Columbus, and the hunt is on not for replacements but first for what to replace. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • Center Cutter Gauthier, 19, the Philadelphia Flyers prospect and a player who had an outstanding freshman season at Boston College, announced last month he had decided to stay in school for another year, and Flyers GM Daniel Briere applauds the decision. [Philadelphia Flyers]
  • The Boston Bruins were again without their captain against the Florida Panthers as Patrice Bergeron did not make the trip and missed Game 3. [Florida Panthers]
  • When defenseman Simon Edvinsson was brought up to the Detroit Red Wings this season, sources told Detroit Hockey Now that it could have just as easily been Albert Johansson if he wasn’t injured. [Detroit Red Wings]
  • The Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Winnipeg Jets 5-2 Thursday night to tie their first-round Stanley Cup Playoffs series at one game a piece. The Golden Knights got contributions from all throughout their lineup, with William Karlsson and Jack Eichel scoring big goals and Laurent Brossoit standing tall. [Vegas Golden Knights]
  • The other shoe that was always expected to drop for the Boston Bruins final did this week as the end of the NHL regular season ushered in the salary cap forecasts for next year. And the B’s will be paying a heavy tab for the one-year, incentive-laden contracts that both Patrice Bergeron ($2.5 million in bonus money) and David Krejci ($2 million in bonus money) signed this season that were considered team-friendly “bargains” because of the low base salaries on the one-year deals. [Boston Bruins]
