Penguins Letang Released from Hospital

Penguins Letang Released from Hospital

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(PITTSBURGH, Pa.) -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang was released from the hospital Sunday and diagnosed with a concussion after a scary collision in Saturday's game against the Arizona Coyotes.

Letang lay on the ice in a disoriented state when he fell backwards into the boards after a check by Coyotes winger Shane Doan.

"I just went to make sure I got a piece of him so he couldn't jump by me and he obviously went into the boards awkward," Doan said.

"You never ever want to see anyone like that, especially a guy with his caliber and everything he's went through in the past couple years," he added. "You feel awful as a player when something like that happens." 

Letang has a history of concussions and suffered a stroke last season, in what doctors attributed to a small hole in his heart.

Currently, there is no scheduled date for Letang's return, according to coach Mike Johnston.

“We'll see how he feels over the next few days and go from there,” Johnston said.

Bruins Ruin Lundqvist’s Return

Bruins Ruin Lundqvist’s Return

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(BOSTON) -- Milan Lucic scored twice to help the Boston Bruins upend the New York Rangers 4-2 Saturday, spoiling goalie Henrik Lundqvist's return to the ice.

Lundqvist, who missed the past seven weeks with a vascular injury, was instantly challenged. Lucic scored just 1:41 into the game when a puck went off his skate and past the former Vezina Trophy winner. Lucic scored again just over seven minutes later when Torey Krug dished the puck to the B's hulking winger, who slapped it between Lunqvist's legs for a 2-0 lead.

"It seemed like everything kind of kept rolling after we got that break on the first goal," Lucic said. "It's good to see us step up and play the way we can play. Right now it's just continuing to recapture what we had here tonight."

The Bruins did receive a scare early in the second period when goalie Tuukka Rask left the game for the locker room. He didn't return to the bench but Bruins head coach Claude Julien said after the game that it appeared Rask was just dehydrated.

"He's scheduled to travel with us, he's scheduled to be with us and he should be fine for (Sunday against Carolina)," Julien said. "We just found out at the beginning of the second (period). I said, `Are you still having those symptoms?' He said, `Yep.' So I said, `Let's get you out of here."

Rick Nash scored his 40th goal of the season for the Rangers (47-20-7, 101pts) in the loss.

With the win the Bruins (37-25-13, 87pts) snap a six-game losing streak and take over sole possession of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Lundqvist Not Rushing Return

Lundqvist Not Rushing Return

Scott Levy/NHLI via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has resumed practicing with the team, but says he will not rush his way into the starting lineup."I want to take the first week and skate with the guys and get more speed, and then we'll take it from there," Lundqvist said. "I don't want to rush back."Lundqvist has been out since Feb. 2 with a damaged blood vessel in his neck. On Wednesday morning he took high shots with Rangers coaches. He will be a full participant in practice for the first time on Friday.Cam Talbot has taken over since Lundqvist has been out. During that time, the Rangers have gone 15-2-3.Lundqvist, the former Vezina Trophy winner, started 39 games before the injury, posting a 25-11-3 record, .922 save-percentage, and a 2.25 goals-against average.The Rangers only have 13 regular-season games remaining, but head coach Alain Vigneault isn't worried that his start goalie will get enough ice time before the playoffs."I think if he plays two, three, four, five games, he'll be fine," Vigneault said. "In training camp, it only takes him a couple, and he's good to go. Yes, he's been out, but he's been active. So I don't expect this to be a long time for him to tell me he's good to go."

NHL Considering 3-on-3 Overtime

NHL Considering 3-on-3 Overtime

Len Redkoles/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The NHL is exploring ways to change overtime once again.

Three-on-three hockey is being discussed as a new format to reduce the number of games that end in a shootout.

The NHL does not want to eliminate the shootout, rather add a five minute period of three-on-three play after the five minute four-on-four overtime period -- similar to the AHL rule.

"That's something we're going to discuss with the competition committee because, obviously, we want the players' association input on how we're going to approach it," Commissioner Gary Bettman. "So we're going to look at both variables and figure out which one, collectively with the competition committee, we think makes the most sense. Then ultimately, it's subject to Board Of Governor approval."

The rule could be implemented as soon as the 2015-2016 season, if it is approved by the NHL's competition committee.

Avalanche Lose MacKinnon To Broken Foot

Avalanche Lose MacKinnon To Broken Foot

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(DENVER, Co.) -- The Colorado Avalanche will be without one of the NHL's most promising young goal scorers potentially for the rest of the regular season.

Nathan MacKinnon will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks with a broken foot, according to coach Patrick Roy.

"Obviously, it's never good news when you're losing a player like Nate, especially at a key moment in our season," Roy said."

Through 64 games this season, Mackinnon has 14 goals and 24 assists.

MacKinnon, 19, recorded his first career hat-trick on Feb. 22 as he helped lead the Avalanche to a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning. Ironically, it may have been during that game that he suffered the fracture when he took a puck to the foot.

The Avalanche are currently 12th in the Western Conference, nine points behind the eighth seeded Winnipeg Jets. Unless the team is able to rally in the final weeks of the regular season, fans and team alike will have to wait until next year to watch the electric sniper.

Lightning Acquire Defenseman Braydon Coburn from the Flyers

Lightning Acquire Defenseman Braydon Coburn from the Flyers

Len Redkoles/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- As the Tampa Bay Lightning enter the stretch run of the NHL season, the team went out and made their team stronger before the trade deadline as they acquired defenseman Braydon Coburn from the Philadelphia Flyers.

 

In order to acquire Coburn's services, the Lightning had to give up their 2015 first- and third-round draft picks along with defenseman Radko Gudas.

 

The Lightning also shipped Brett Connolly to the Boston Bruins for a second-round pick in 2015 and another in 2016.

Coburn led the Flyers this season in average shifts per game at 27.9 and is still a solid defenseman. He had been with the Flyers since the 2006-2007 season. He was also third among Flyers' defensemen in average ice time at 20:14. Coburn has one goal and eight assists in 39 games this season.

Jaromir Jagr Ties Phil Esposito on NHL Scoring List

Glenn James/NHLI via Getty Images(SUNRISE, Fl.) -- Jaromir Jagr tied Phil Esposito for fifth on the all-time scoring list in NHL history on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

"I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there," Jagr said of Esposito. "After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him."

At 10:24 into the first period, Jagr beat Lightning goalie Ben Bishop over his stick-side shoulder to score his 717th career goal.

Jagr was traded to the Panthers on Feb. 26 from the New Jersey Devils for a pair of draft picks.

He now trails Marcel Dionne (731 goals) for fourth all-time.

When we get him back on his game, he's a great defenseman, low risk, high reward."The 39-year-old Timonen has not played this season due to blood clots in his lower right leg and both of his lungs, but on Thursday Timonen skated with the Flyers and said he's ready to play.Timonen ranks third among active defenseman with 571 career points over 15 NHL seasons.Timonen has declared he will retire at the end of the season.
