The Red Wings insist the setback isn’t that serious

9:02 PM ETAssociated Press MessengerEmailprintcommentRALEIGH, N.C. — Anaheim Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said goalie Ryan Miller was brought in to be a veteran presence and not just a backup to starter John Gibson.
Both forwards are crucial to the future success of the Leafs and will be compensated as such.
Carolina Hurricanes: In hope of inspiring offensive success similar to that from earlier this campaign, coach Bill Peters is re-configuring his top line, bumping Victor Rask back up to center Jeff Skinner and Lee Stempniak. Despite sporting 32 points on the season, Rask hasn’t registered a goal or assist in 10 games. This shuffle should help.
Detroit Red Wings: Goalie Jimmy Howard may be a while yet from returning to Detroit’s crease. Feeling a ‘little tweak’ during this week’s rehab assignment with the Grand Rapids Griffins, the veteran netminder re-aggravated a knee injury that has kept him out of NHL action since December. The cheap nhl jerseys Red Wings insist the setback isn’t that serious. We’ll see.
I also see this a lot in rec-league play, but it usually isn’t proof of anyone’s hockey sense. Rather, players are too focused on the puck to look up, and eventually just try to toss it in the rough direction of the net or to wherever they last saw a teammate. Spoiler alert: not a good idea.

But since it’s a treat to watch Jaden Schwartz Wholesale jersey when NHLers do it, here’s another one (this time by ex-Edmonton Oilers winger Jordan Eberle). He also combines points one and two, which is pretty cool.
Buffalo Sabres: After crashing hard into the boards Tuesday, forward Evander Kane is ‘iffy’ for Thursday’s game with the visiting Ducks. The underrated fantasy asset has 16 goals in 30 games since Dec. 3.
Boston’s training camp is set to begin in approximately three weeks, and general manager Don Sweeney has stated emphatically that the winger will not be traded.
Jeff Skinner, Jordan Staal and Justin Faulk scored to rally the Hurricanes from a 2-0 deficit in the opening period. Scott Darling stopped 22 shots.
Then earlier on Friday he set up Mike Hoffman with a nice feed for his second career assist.
Calgary Flames: As the Flames enjoy their mandated five-day break, a reminder that, not Johnny Gaudreau, not Sean Monahan, but Mikael Backlund leads the club in points (38) and power-play points (13), sitting second only to Monahan in shots (136). And while Gaudreau has admittedly played fewer games, Backlund’s plus-seven on the season positively glows in comparison to ‘Johnny Hockey’s’ minus-18. Worth mentioning, since Marco Scandella jersey Authentic Matthew Tkachuk’s linemate remains available in more than 40 percent of ESPN leagues.
