Devils end Penguins home winning streak,Hall scores again

Devils end Penguins home winning streak,Hall scores again

Taylor Hall just wants to contribute to the New Jersey Devils' playoff run.

The Devils are happy that he's contributing at a historic pace.

 Stefan Noesen scored the only goal of the third period and New Jersey beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Tuesday night.,Hall equaled the Devils' franchise record with points in 15 straight games

"The points feel more important and that's a really good feeling as a player, so I'm happy that I'm able to do my part."," Hall said. "We're in the middle of a playoff run and games are important

Noesen, broke a 2-2 tie with his ninth of the season five minutes into the third. He tipped Andy Greene's attempt from the side boards behind Penguins goaltender Casey DeSmith., playing in his 100th NHL game

Hall equaled a career high with his 27th goal and had an assist. Hall, who missed three games with a hand injury, scoring 15 goals and 32 points during that span. He's the fifth player in the last 25 years with at least one point in 22 consecutive appearances.,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-victor-hedman-jersey]Authentic Victor Hedman jersey[/url], has points in the last 22 games in which he's played

"The first period, I probably touched the puck five or six times and I get an assist in the neutral zone," Hall said. "That's the way it's going. You score points in 22 straight games, and things are going your way, there's got to be some luck involved, but you want to create those chances."

 whose 11-game home win streak ended.,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-nikita-kucherov-jersey]Authentic Nikita Kucherov jersey[/url],Sidney Crosby scored his 21st goal and Matt Hunwick tallied his fourth for the Penguins

The Penguins, lost in Pittsburgh for the first time since Jan. 4. It was their longest home winning streak since a franchise-record 13-game run during the 2013-14 season., who have won 11 of 15 overall

" Crosby said. "You have to find a way to keep that hunger. It's going to be a fight until the end and we have to have a consistent effort.","I don't think you can exhale and take it easy

 who are fighting for an Eastern Conference wild card spot. New Jersey has won six of eight after losing eight of its previous 11.,Kyle Palmieri scored his 17th goal for the Devils

 matching a career high.,Keith Kinkaid made 36 saves for the Devils in his 26th appearance

DeSmith,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-james-van-riemsdyk-jersey]Authentic James Van Riemsdyk jersey[/url], stopped 35 shots for Pittsburgh. He was recalled from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League on Monday. Penguins starter Matt Murray is out indefinitely with a concussion after he took a puck to the mask during Monday's practice., a rookie

"Obviously," DeSmith said. "But the playoff run coming up is really key.", we want Matt to be healthy

Derick Brassard figures to be a key part of the Penguins' postseason push.

Brassard made his debut for Pittsburgh after he was acquired from the Ottawa Senators on Feb. 23. Brassard, who received an ovation before his first shift, starting with Phil Kessel and Conor Sheary before mixing in Riley Sheahan later in the game.,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-daniel-sedin-jersey]Authentic Daniel Sedin jersey[/url], primarily centered the Penguins' third line

" Brassard said.,"It's going to take me a couple games to get a feel for my linemates and a feel for the way we play

 but he said he was nervous when he arrived at the rink.,Brassard spent the last three days in Toronto sorting out immigration paperwork before joining his new teammates for Tuesday's morning skate. The 30-year-old Brassard is in his 10th NHL season

Pittsburgh is trying to become the first team since the 1982-83 New York Islanders to win three straight Stanley Cups, who averaged 19 goals and 48 points during the last five seasons with Ottawa and the New York Rangers., and the Penguins aggressively pursued Brassard

"I was kind of nervous a little bit, which is part of the excitement of being here, I was in the game.",[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-ryan-miller-jersey]adidas Ryan Miller jersey[/url]," Brassard said. "But after a couple shifts

 this contract might be too much and too long for a 31-year old player whose career-high in points in 53.,While it’s great to keep the core group of a Cup-winning team together as long as possible

Hornqvist plays a bulldozing and fearless style, a player like Hornqvist who is willing to do the dirty work and go to the tough areas of the ice is huge. He makes life easier for whoever else is on his line., which is precisely why he’s such an integral part of the current Penguins team. On a squad full of stars

The flip side of that is the style Hornqvist plays leads to injuries. He’s only played over 75 games four times in his nine full seasons. He won’t hit that benchmark again this season. It’s a little difficult to envision that part of the equation get better with age.

 the cap has only gone up by an average of $1.5 million a season. That’s not that much.,Another argument for this contract is the salary cap will go up and it will make the deal look better. The catch there is since the 2014-15 season

With the Penguins already having so many large contracts on the books, at best., they’re always going to be close to the cap. Paying a winger on the wrong side of 30 more than $5 million a year when his play could drop at any point seems like a questionable decision

 the Penguins are doing their best while the window is open. Hornqvist is still part of that window and deserved an extension. The Penguins just shouldn’t have gone to this length to keep him.,Make no mistake; the Penguins will have a hefty bill coming for the seasons of going all-in to win Stanley Cups while Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby are at their best. That’s not to say Pittsburgh has done anything wrong. On the contrary

he 37-year-old forward gets a one-year, the team announced., $1 million deal for the remainder of the season

 when postseason rosters must be set. The team did not announce a timetable for Fisher to play in games.,Fisher signed a professional tryout contract in order to begin working out with the team at the end of January and planned to sign a deal ahead of the Feb. 26 trade deadline

Fisher announced the end of his 17-year NHL career on Aug. 3, but I do so with hope. Endings are always tough, both at a news conference and via a letter to fans. "Knowing we were so close to winning it all in June only makes it more difficult to leave it behind, but I believe when something ends, too," he wrote., there are new beginnings, new opportunities and new things to be excited for

Fisher said at the start of the season that he was still navigating through a post-NHL life. "I want to take some time away to figure out what it's like not to play," he told The Tennessean., just figure out what daily life's going to be like

The return of Fisher bolsters the Predators' already strong group of centers -- including Ryan Johansen, who was signed to replace Fisher in the offseason., Kyle Turris and Nick Bonino

Fisher had 18 goals and 24 assists in 72 games for the Predators last season, skating 16:37 per game. He had four assists in 20 playoff games. Fisher said the team's potential to win the Stanley Cup, was one factor in returning to the NHL., having lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games last June

So so sorry to any fringe-competitive teams trying to make additions at the deadline. Columbus added a host of new bodies, the Kings have pushed in with a new defender and winger. A bunch of other teams made smaller depth additions., New Jersey made the Grabner swap

And it doesn’t matter. These teams will in all likelihood be swept aside with terrifying ease when they run up against the handful of truly elite teams.

 whose deadline strategy strikes me as pathologically worrisome. The picks they gave up to get Tomas Tatar (not great!) are spread out over the next few years,This includes Vegas, and maybe they feel like Tatar will be better for them in the next handful of years than whoever they end up getting, like, 25th overall. I get that argument since he’s a known quantity and that prospect very much wouldn’t be.

 doesn’t it seem possible,However, even probable, that they really helped Pittsburgh acquire Derick Brassard by misunderstanding the CBA? The team press release said they were eating 40 percent of Brassard’s salary this year, when in fact that obligation comes both this year and next.

Now, they maybe don’t have to care about the money or the help because they currently have $30 million in cap space next season without a lot of guys they absolutely need to re-sign (William Karlsson, Tomas Nosek, and Shea Theodore are their only RFAs of note, Colin Miller, and of that group only Karlsson is likely due a huge pay raise).

And, they wouldn’t have to play Brassard in the playoffs until they made the Cup Final. (Also worth noting: It seems unlikely either they or the Penguins actually get that far.), [url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-victor-hedman-jersey]adidas Victor Hedman jersey[/url],as George McPhee says

Just seems like an odd approach for a club that has, what, maybe they’ll trade James Neal’s rights for a fourth-round pick or something., 15 actual prospects? Hey

5. Trade deadline coverage

 I am not a smart person.,Man

I once again watched both of the big trade deadline shows and I was once again appalled with how much filler they had in their too-big, too-long shows. They would, of course, given that dummies like me watch them from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every single year, argue that these shows are neither too big nor too long,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-auston-matthews-jersey]Authentic Auston Matthews jersey[/url], but nonetheless!

The news that “broke” on these shows often broke on Twitter first, so why do we watch this stuff? This is especially concerning for me, [url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-auston-matthews-jersey]adidas Auston Matthews jersey[/url], when we go in knowing we will also be tortured with “comedy” segments and “rap” songs for at least the first five hours., mentally

I feel like I swore off watching this stuff last year. Maybe I got conned by the possibility of all of Erik Karlsson, Ryan McDonagh,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-nikita-kucherov-jersey]adidas Nikita Kucherov jersey[/url],that’s on me., and Max Pacioretty getting traded. Hey

If you’re like me, but it’s important for good mental health.,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-daniel-sedin-jersey]adidas Daniel Sedin jersey[/url], please understand you are allowed to forgive yourself for this brutal miscalculation. It’s hard to do sometimes

 for now,4. Pierre Dorion

Imagine you have to go up there after the deadline and, pretend like you think you have a legit shot to keep Erik Karlsson and won’t trade him at the draft.,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-james-van-riemsdyk-jersey]adidas James Van Riemsdyk jersey[/url], despite all the rumors

I know Karlsson came out yesterday, and said he would absolutely be open to returning to the Sens next season but even the hockey fans who were literally born yesterday (and therefore have no object permanence) know there’s a zero-point-zero percent chance he’s in a Sens uniform next season., after the deadline

 I guess.,But you gotta pretend

3. Trading for prospects

A lot of times when teams trade for prospects, no matter their quality,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-ryan-miller-jersey]Authentic Ryan Miller jersey[/url], I feel like I have suffered a serious head injury. Observers will rush to the fore to say, this guy has like 12 AHL points this year, “Ah sure, but he’s actually good despite being 24.”

That really only happened, weirdly, who’s 22 but averages less than half a point a game in the American League., with Tyler Motte

Overall, which is only odd because of how many really good NHLers — not even just rentals — got moved in the days leading up to the deadline., this was a deeply unimpressive list of prospects who got swapped

 impactful player. Maybe Filip Gustavsson?,Very few guys even come close to looking like a big

2. Teams with guys to move at the draft

Okay so speaking of Dorion and the Senators, it’s important to consider that he didn’t trade any of Karlsson, Mike Hoffman, despite rumors on all those guys being “Out There” for everyone to consider. Also not traded, to little surprise: Bobby Ryan., Mark Stone, or JG Pageau

 Marc Bergevin didn’t move Max Pacioretty or Alex Galchenyuk despite everyone kinda thinking he would.,Likewise

But hey, but more teams with interest in any of those guys will have the option to kick the tires and see what kinds of packages they can put together for those players., would you be surprised to see at least 50 percent of those guys moved in the lead-up to the draft? I wouldn’t. Getting the details hammered out mid-season isn’t easy with the cap in effect

 your window to trade those guys isn’t closed. If anything, it’ll open even wider. Plus, with what New York got for Nash, McDonagh,So if you’ve got this kind of contract on your hands, and Miller, maybe the prices will improve.

1. The Big Boys

 dweebos and nerdlingers: The teams that were already bullying everyone they played are, for the most part,Step aside, now better than they were before. And they were already elite.

 truly wild that the teams that were already some of the best in the league also made the biggest effort to add the best players at the deadline. Nash to Boston, their offense is due for a big upgrade.), McDonagh to Tampa, Brassard to Pittsburgh, Stastny to Winnipeg,It is truly, Plekanec to Toronto. (And you can argue Nashville didn’t add much in only getting Ryan Hartman, but with Eeli Tolvanen coming in soon

This sets up a real Clash of the Titans scenario; the odds that a weak team like last year’s Ottawa club can beat the two elite teams they’re likely to face on the way to a Conference Final is pretty low. Plus we’re increasingly dialed in for wild matchups in every division.

 man,Then the second round? Ahhh, let’s just skip right to that now. I’ve been thinking about the playoffs this year and now I don’t care about the rest of the regular season any more.

 I guess, is that they’re effectively locked in to either the No. 2 or No. 3 seed in their division and they’re also really good anyway. The bad news is that Patrice Bergeron being out for two or three weeks,The good news for Boston, at least, really cramps their style when it comes to pushing Tampa or even Toronto to move up. They have games in hand on both — three on Tampa and five on Toronto — but being without the guy who’s really made you “go” this whole time is a worry.

 missing 13 games of Brad Marchand this year doesn’t seem to have dinged them too much, but losing Bergeron probably hurts a bit more considering they’re bumping Riley Nash to the first line in his place. Riley Nash is having a nice little season for himself,To be fair, but c’mon now.
