Islanders Defeat Penguins for Second Straight Night

Islanders Defeat Penguins for Second Straight Night

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(UNIONDALE, N.Y.) -- For the second straight night the New York Islanders have defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins.

In a home-and-home series, the Islanders took a 5-4 shootout win in Pittsburgh Friday, then beat the Penguins in New York Saturday 4-1.  The Islanders are now tied with the Penguins in the Metro division at 28 points.

The Penguins took the lead late in the first on an Evgeni Malkin goal.  The Islanders matched it at 1:59 in the second when Matt Martin backhanded a rebound past Penguins goalie Thomas Greiss.

The third period opened and the Islanders came out firing. Anders Lee, Brock Nelson and John Tavares each scored a goal as New York blew open the game and sealed the victory. 

"We're understanding what's bringing us success,” said Tavares. "We have a talented hockey club when everyone's committed to doing the right things and doing their job."

Blue Jackets’ Jack Johnson Files for Bankruptcy, Claims Parents Are Responsible

Blue Jackets’ Jack Johnson Files for Bankruptcy, Claims Parents Are Responsible

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Despite over $30 million in earnings during his career, Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, claiming his parents are responsible for his financial troubles.

According to a report from the Columbus Dispatch, prior to signing a seven-year, $30.5 million deal in 2011, Johnson granted power of attorney to his mother, and gave her full control of his finances.

Johnson claims his mother, Tina Johnson, purchased a house in Manhattan Beach, California with his money but he never had knowledge of the transaction. Johnson also alleges his parents borrowed $15 million against his future earnings. Many of the loans carried high interest rates.

"I'd say I picked the wrong people who led me down the wrong path," Johnson told The Dispatch last week. "I've got people in place who are going to fix everything now. It's something I should have done a long time ago."

ESPN.com reports that documents were filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District Court of Ohio that show that Johnson has very little left of the millions he's made during his career, and his future earnings are compromised because of debt and interest rates.

The 27-year-old Johnson was a first round pick in 2005 and has three years left on his current deal.

NHL Postpones Buffalo Sabres Game

NHL Postpones Buffalo Sabres Game

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(BUFFALO, N.Y.) -- The NHL announced on Thursday that the Buffalo Sabres home game on Friday night has been postponed due to severe lake-effect snowstorms in the area. Buffalo was scheduled to host the New York Rangers and a make-up date has not been announced.

More than five feet of snow has fallen across parts of Western New York, and as many as three more is projected to fall by Friday night. This has left many residents in and around Buffalo incapable of leaving their homes -- and has also accounted for multiple deaths.

Buffalo hosted San Jose on Tuesday night, one day after the first storm. An estimated crowd of just 6,200 was able to attend the 4-1 victory.

Bruins Extend Head Coach Julien

Bruins Extend Head Coach Julien

Mitchell Layton/NHLI via Getty Images(BOSTON) -- The Boston Bruins have agreed to a multi-year contract extension with head coach Claude Julien, the team announced Sunday.

"We have worked at this for a few months, but there was never any doubt in my mind that this would get done," Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement. "Claude is one of the top coaches in the NHL and has consistently shown a passion for winning through his coaching."

While the Bruins have never released the terms of Julien's contract during his tenure, reports say the 54-year-old agreed to a three-year extension on Sunday morning. This is the third extension during his time in Boston, the second was just before the lockout-shortened season.

Julien is in his eighth season as Bruins coach, taking the team to seven straight playoff appearances. Boston has been to two Stanley Cup finals under Julien, winning the championship in 2011. 

The Bruins are 317-171-65 since Julien took over prior to the 2007-08 season. Julien is the second-longest tenured coach in the National Hockey League behind Detroit's Mike Babcock, who is in his 10th season.

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(WILMINGTON, Mass.) -- The Boston Bruins' blueline takes another hit.Torey Krug will miss two to three weeks with a broken finger, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Wednesday morning.Krug broke the finger after getting slashed during his final shift in the Bruins loss to Minnesota Tuesday night.Krug joins a growing list of injured Boston defensemen. The B's are already without captain Zdeno Chara for four to six weeks with a left knee injury and Kevan Miller, who has a dislocated right shoulder.Despite the growing list of injuries, Bruins center Patrice Bergeron is staying upbeat.“For us, with our system, it’s about not just about the defensemen, but really the whole aspect of all the guys on the ice and playing a good system,” Bergeron said. “And that’s what we need to have.”The Bruins (5-6-0, 10pts) re-called defensemen David Warsofsky and Joe Morrow from their AHL affiliate in Providence to pick up the slack.

Bruins’ Defenseman Zdeno Chara Out 4-6 Weeks with Knee Injury

Bruins’ Defenseman Zdeno Chara Out 4-6 Weeks with Knee Injury

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(BOSTON) -- The Boston Bruins will be without one of the most imposing players in the NHL for the foreseeable future as defenseman Zdeno Chara will miss the next 4-6 weeks with a tear to the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Chara suffered the injury on Thursday during the Bruins' game against the New York Islanders.

While the injury could have been a lot worse, Chara's absence will still felt on the team.

"You hope everyone else picks up the slack," Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said. "We've had a stretch before, might not have been four to six weeks, more like three weeks where Z was out. They don't happen too often, but you hope everyone picks up the slack and we play a solid defensive game."

Despite being in his 17th NHL season, ninth with the Bruins, the 37-year-old Chara is still one of the best defenseman in the NHL.

Since joining the Bruins in 2006, the team is 341-204-66 with Chara in the lineup during the regular season, and 8-7-5 without him.

During his time with the Bruins, Chara has never missed more than five-straight games.

Stamkos Hat Trick Leads Rout of Canadiens

Stamkos Hat Trick Leads Rout of Canadiens

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(TAMPA BAY, FL) -- Steven Stamkos led an offensive onslaught over the Montreal Canadiens that spearheaded a 7-1 Tampa Bay Lightning win at Amalie Arena.

Stamkos recorded a hat trick, the eighth of his career. His third goal came with 1:46 remaining in the second period, when he fired a shot from the right circle that gave the Lightning a 4-1 lead.  

"I've learned over the years that if you stick with it, usually the floodgates open," Stamkos said.

Stamkos is now tied with Martin St. Louis for franchise record in hat tricks.

The Lightning are 2-0-1 on the season.
