Islanders Rally for Shootout Win over New Jersey

Islanders Rally for Shootout Win over New Jersey

Mike Stobe/NHLI via Getty Images(UNIONDALE, N.Y.) -- The New York Islanders rallied from a third period deficit for the second straight game, defeating the New Jersey Devils 3-2 in a shootout on Monday night. It was the ninth time in nine tries this year that the Islanders (21-10-0, 42pts) won in extra time.

"We have a lot of confidence, whether it's in OT or shootout," said Josh Bailey who scored the game-winner in the shootout. "We have a lot of guys who can put the puck in the net."

The Devils (11-15-6, 28pts) jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period, scoring first on the power play. Marek Zidlicky's slapshot after the penalty to Anders Lee opened the scoring, getting assists from Scott Gomez and Jaromir Jagr. The trio combined for the second goal of the night as well with Jagr and Zidlicky assisting on Gomez's goal.

Bailey started the comeback late in the second when he beat Keith Kinkaid, a Long Island native, with less than two minutes remaining in the period. Matt Martin then knotted things up midway through the third on a wide-angle shot to Kinkaid's left. 

A scoreless overtime sent the game into the shootout where the two teams came out tied after three attempts. In the fifth round of the shootout, Bailey beat Kinkaid between his legs and New Jersey's Jacob Josefson missed his shot over the net to give the Islanders the win.

Jaroslav Halak made 26 saves for the Islanders, who are now 6-0 this year in shootouts, while Kinkaid stopped 31 shots as the Devils fall to 1-5 in sudden death.

Sidney Crosby Has The Mumps

Sidney Crosby Has The Mumps

Gregory Shamus/NHLI via Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- The NHL has had a rash of mumps outbreaks in the past couple weeks.

The latest victim is its' most high profile player; Sidney Crosby.

According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, Crosby becomes the latest NHL player to contract the virus.

The list includes: Corey Perry and Francois Beauchemin of the Anahiem Ducks, Tanner Glass of the New York Rangers, Travis Zajac and Adam Larsson of the New Jersey Devils, as well as Ryan Suter, Keith Ballard, Marco Scandella, Jonas Brodin and Christian Folin of the Minnesota Wild.  The St. Louis Blues also were reported to have a couple players diagnosed.

Mumps cases have been rare for several decades as most children receive a vaccination. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, "Mumps is a viral infection that primarily affects the parotid glands — one of three pairs of saliva-producing (salivary) glands, situated below and in front of your ears... it can cause swelling in one or both parotid glands."

The NHL is taking proactive measures to control the outbreak and educate teams about how to handle the disease. 

According to an NHL spokesman, the league has been working with team doctors and physicians to avoid spreading the virus in team locker rooms, as well as distributing "links to the CDC website" and disseminating "literature regarding mumps."

Senators Fire Paul MacLean

Senators Fire Paul MacLean

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Ottawa Senators fired head coach Paul MacLean Monday.The Senators made the announcement on the team's Twitter account. Assistant Dave Cameron was named the new head coach.

MacLean, who is just two seasons removed from winning the Jack Adams Award, which is given annually to the best coach of the year, led the Senators to an 11-11-5 record this year before being let go.

"We continue to be a big turnover team in our zone," Senators general manager Bryan Murray said during a news conference Monday. "Our goaltending has been, to say the least, outstanding most nights to give us a chance to win hockey games. The chances against our team are, some nights, atrocious. I think there's an obligation for a lot of people, the players included, to perform better than that. But the leader of the pack always is the coach."MacLean coached 238 regular season games during his four seasons with Ottawa, posting a 114-90-45 record.

Mike Babcock Gets 500th Win as Detroit Beats Rangers

Mike Babcock Gets 500th Win as Detroit Beats Rangers

Dave Reginek/NHLI via Getty Images(DETROIT, Mich.) -- Mike Babcock earned his 500th coaching win on Saturday night when the Detroit Red Wings defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 at Joe Louis Arena. The Rangers (11-10-4, 26pts) led 2-0 after the first period, but Detroit (16-6-5, 37pts) took a lead on Darren Helm's wrist-shot in the third.

"That was huge. It showed a lot of character by our guys. A lot of heart," goalie Jimmy Howard said after his 13th win of the year. "We found a way. That's all that matters."

New York jumped on the board when Kevin Klein beat Howard less than ten minutes into the game. Rick Nash followed with his 17th goal of the game just five minutes later. Riley Sheahan and Luke Glendening each scored within 61 seconds, tying the game at 2-2 after two periods. That helped set up Helm's heroics in the third, while Howard kept the Rangers from finding an equalizer.

Howard made 27 saves in the win that helped Babcock tie Hall of Famer Toe Blake for 18th all-time. Babcock is the longest-tenured coach in the NHL, leading the Red Wings to the 2008 Stanley Cup while also winning two Olympic Gold Medals with Canada.

"When you start in the league you're hoping to coach 82 games. Just hoping to get through and not get fired. I've coached a lot of good players," Babcock said. "I love it as much and maybe more than the day I started and maybe they'll let me keep doing it."

Daniel Alfredsson Calls It a Career

Daniel Alfredsson Calls It a Career

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(OTTAWA, Ontario) -- Daniel Alfredsson is officially retired.The 41-year-old Alfredsson signed a ceremonial contract with the Ottawa Senators Thursday, so he could retire a member of the team he played with for 17 NHL seasons."One evening nearly 20 years ago a young man in a small town in Sweden got a phone call that would change his life," Alfredsson said during a press conference. "We began an incredible new chapter of our lives in your town starting in August 1995. Our marvelous boys were born here, and we grew from youngsters into aging parents. You made your town our town."Alfredsson made six All-Star teams while playing for Ottawa and owns the franchise record for goals (426), assists (682) and points (1,108). He also scored 14 goals in the team's run to the Stanley Cup final in 2007 and served as team captain for 13 seasons. "Without question, Daniel has been the greatest player that this city has ever seen in many, many different ways," Senators owner, governor and chairman Eugene Melnyk said. "As a player on the ice, as a leader on the ice, as someone who interacted with the fans any time. He was always available. For any charitable work, he was always available. For media, he was always there. That's a rare commodity to have in an organization like ours. Being the longest-serving captain in what is really an infant franchise is phenomenal, for 13 years being our captain."

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.
