AROUND THE WEB
I've mentioned the words Vezina Trophy and Sergei Bobrovsky in the same breath a lot of late. Now I wonder if Hart Trophy and Bobrovsky should begin to enter the discussion as well.
Sergei Bobrovsky was brilliant again, stopping 39 of 41 shots against Saturday and the Jackets used a two goal second period to ensure OT (and a precious point) before ultimately dropping Minnesota...
Leafs winger Phil Kessel has been named one of the NHL three stars of the week.
Kessel led the NHL with five goals and tied for the League lead with seven points in three games. He scored two goals, including the game-winner, and added an assist in a 4-3 triumph over the New York Rangers April 8. Kessel then recorded both of Toronto's goals in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Rangers...
Three Stars of the Week
1. Phil Kessel (Toronto Maple Leafs)
Toronto has been one of the surprises of the National Hockey League this season and now sit in a playoff spot after missing the postseason last year, while playing in one of the toughest divisions in the league. The veteran lethal sniper is a big reason why. Boasting a laser of a wrist shot, Kessel netted five goals...
If the Columbus Blue Jackets qualify for the postseason, Sergei Bobrovsky deserves plenty of the credit.
He'll look to help guide visiting Columbus to a fourth consecutive victory as it continues its playoff push Monday night against the last-place Colorado Avalanche.
The Blue Jackets (19-16-7) had an NHL-worst 13 points after their fourth consecutive defeat March 1, but they...
James Reimer made 31 saves, and Phil Kessel snapped a scoreless tie late in the third period to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 2-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night, despite recording only 12 shots.
Kessel broke the deadlock at 13:28 of the third, and Jay McClement scored into an empty net with 36.6 seconds remaining to back the stellar goaltending of Reimer...
from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post,
On winger Phil Kessel, who has eight points in his last four games:
“I just think that we’ve asked him to do some things differently. Again, it’s a tribute to the player. It’s not anything that is earth shattering. We just felt that there’s things that we have to do as a group to give ourselves the best chance to have...
My 3 Stars of the Game
1. Cam Atkinson, CBJ. 1 goal, 1 assist, generally wreaked havoc around the ice.
2. Sergei Bobrovsky, CBJ. After the Shattenkirk goal just 1:16 in, he was solid and kept the Jackets in long enough for the rest of the team to get going.
3. Ryan Johansen, CBJ. Showed flashes of why he went #6 overall just a couple seasons ago.
DENVER (AP) -- Nick Foligno scored at 4:31 of overtime, Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 29 shots and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Monday night for their fourth straight win.
Blake Comeau, Mark Letestu and R.J. Umberger also added goals to help the Blue Jackets remain in the thick of a tightly packed playoff chase. They pulled even in points (47) with Detroit...
Eric Nystrom and rookie Alex Chiasson scored goals, Richard Bachman made 31 saves and the Dallas Stars extended their winning streak to five games Saturday night with a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks.
Chiasson scored his sixth goal in just his sixth career NHL contest since being recalled from AHL Texas on April 2, helping the Stars improve to 45 points, even with Detroit...
from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,
“There are good stereotypes and bad, and most people focus on the bad,” said Slava Malamud, a senior writer for the Russian daily Sport Express and a correspondent for NHL.com.
Malamud, based in Washington, was in such a rush to get to Columbus to talk to Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, he got a speeding ticket...
DALLAS (AP) -- Eric Nystrom and rookie Alex Chiasson scored goals, Richard Bachman made 31 saves and the Dallas Stars extended their winning streak to five games with a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.
Chiasson scored his sixth goal in just his sixth career NHL contest since being recalled from AHL Texas on April 2, helping the Stars improve to 45 points,...
The Pacific Division-leading Anaheim Ducks are postseason bound, but they'll need to start scoring more if they want to make a deep run.
Doing so against the Columbus Blue Jackets could be difficult if Sergei Bobrovsky, who has carried them into playoff contention, is in net.
Having scored one goal each time in losing its last two, well-rested Anaheim takes on a Blue Jackets...
