Back to some defensive hockey:

Brodeur, Devils Shut Down Lightning 2-0
Saturday, January 27, 2007 3:06 AM EST
The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Martin Brodeur turned an outstanding performance into another milestone. Brodeur made 28 saves, extending his NHL record for consecutive 30-win seasons to 11, and the New Jersey Devils beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 Friday night.

"I just want to win," Brodeur said. "Every year, I go in and I want to win 30 games. That's my first goal. I'm happy that it happened so quickly. We'll move forward now."

Brodeur (30-13-4) also recorded his NHL-best ninth shutout this season and the 89th of his career.

"We played a good hockey game ... couldn't beat the goalie," Lightning coach John Tortorella said.

Brian Gionta and Jay Pandolfo scored for the Devils, who are 11-1-2 over the last 14 games.

Tampa Bay goalie Johan Holmqvist stopped 23 shots as the Lightning lost for just the second time in their last nine games.

Gionta put New Jersey ahead 1-0 with 50.5 seconds left in the first. He scored from just outside the crease off a pass from behind the net by Scott Gomez.

Pandolfo made it 2-0 with an empty-netter with 42.5 seconds left.

The Atlantic Division-leading Devils are 24-5-3 this season when scoring the first goal of the game.

"For me and for our defense to play tight, we have no choice," Brodeur said. "We can't let ourselves go. We don't have that room for error. I think that's the reason why we're able to get so many (shutouts). If we want to win, we need to have them some nights."

The Lightning dominated the early part of the second, but Brodeur stopped in-close chances by Eric Perrin and Ryan Craig.

"He's one of the best that ever played," Lightning center Brad Richards said. "That's why he's considered that. He wins games like that. They can score one goal and sit back."

Holmqvist kept the Lightning within one later in the second when he made a save on Pandolfo's short-handed chance with 6 minutes left. The goalie also got a break when Patrik Elias' shot from the left circle hit the post with 28 seconds remaining in the period.

Brodeur stopped Craig's rebound attempt midway through the third when the Lightning applied strong pressure during a power play. He also made a glove save on Vinny Prospal's rebound with 4 minutes left.

"To me, he's the best goaltender in the game today," Devils coach Claude Julien said. "And he doesn't get satisfied with it. He keeps proving it year after year. He doesn't sit on what he's accomplished. He wants to accomplish more."

Notes: Patrick Roy holds the NHL record for most seasons of at least 30 wins with 13. He also has the second longest streak of consecutive 30-or-more win seasons by a goalie with eight. Tony Esposito is third with seven straight seasons. ... Tampa Bay C Vincent Lecavalier had his 10-game point streak end. He had nine goals and 16 points during the stretch.

The Devils are hot. 8-1-1. Slowly catching Buffalo.

Didn't someone here recently mention that the Devils were bad.

Lost last night to Florida.

Some bizarre goals from each team.

Entertaining though.

We have a game this morning against the other Lysander team.

Hope my kids are well rested.

I can't believe I'm posting in a hockey thread...

The "owner" of one of my all-time favorite sports nicknames, Gump Worsley, has died. Someone always wanted to be "Gump" back when we played street hockey. (And I surely don't mean that darn movie character's name from more recent times...)

Very sad news. I agree that someone was always Gump when playing ball hockey.

I never met him but my Dad knew all those Canadiens. A few other people I know were either related to Gump or were friends. Never heard a bad word about him. Seemed like a class act and one of the best of his era.

Close game this morning.

We beat the other Lysander team 2-1 on a shot with 10 seconds left.

Ten seconds is an eternity in a close game, the other team still had a chance.

They pulled their goalie and put on an extra skater.

As the puck was dropped at center ice, Derek and their star player got into a little shoving match.

Refs took both of them to the box.

Smart play on Derek's part.

We killed the clock and won.

Caps beat the Champs last night.

Even so It was comical at times. Ovechkin and Semin got the Caps a 3-0 first period lead.
But the defense gave 2 back in 50 seconds. The first giveaway 2 caps defensemen crashed
into each other leading Ollie to face a 2 on none. THe second the defenseman fell
down and handed over the puck in front of the net.

The only thing missing was the clown music.

Too bad about the Gumper,probably one of the funniest guys in hockey and a great goalie. RIP Lorne Worsley.

It must be between other sports/racing seasons and no football - afternoon games Saturday and Sunday with the HNIC doubleheader Saturday night as usual. NBC started their series of weekend afternoon games on Sunday with Wings vs. Colorado,one of the few good remaining rivalries in the New NHL. Wings put em down 3-1, Jose Thodore looked really shakey.

Best part of the AllStar game ? Robert Randolph & Family Band at the beginning of the show.

Buffalo comes out of their mini slump and stomps all over Boston.

Gotta stay on top of those nasty Devils.

Not alot of love for this idea from what I've read....

NHL considers larger nets
Wednesday, Jan 31, 2007 9:58 am EST


It's not getting as much attention as dislikes of the current National Hockey League schedule, next season's new uniforms or what to do about the All-Star Game, but the issue of possibly going with larger nets is bubbling just below the surface.

The league is closer to making a change than you might think. It already tried larger goals at a research-and-development camp prior to the start of last season, as well as in a rookie tournament that included players from Toronto, Florida and Montreal.

______________________________________________________________________

I'd try making the ice surface larger first, but they won't rip the seats out in order to do it, so I'm in favor of making the net slightly larger.

Why not raise it a foot above the ice?

Idiots.

Whose bonehead idea is this???



Take away stick curve restrictions.

Much easier to implement, and you won't have rinks all over North America having to shell out $$$ for new sets of goals.

The Wings extracted a little revenge for the 2-1 OT loss to the Blues earlier this week with a 5-3 win tonight Spoiled Manny Legace's return to Detroit and nice to see ex London Knight Dennis Wideman booming shots for the Blues.
Love those short handed goals,one for each team, including the game winner by Kris Draper.Lidstrom's on his way to 5th. Norris trophy for sure, his next goal will be 200th. and he couldn't buy one tonight but he had 3 points as did Zetterberg.

TSN must be on a Wings trip,they're showing the Wings/Rangers game Monday night too. Fine with me.

I'm watching a great game right now.

Buffalo/New Jersey.

Buffalo is six points ahead of Jersey for the best record in the Eastern Conference.

Buffalo led 1-0 for two periods.

Devils scored three goals in 2:30 to go ahead 3-1.

Six minutes left to go.

Heh heh.

How bout the Lightning? They're playing some good hockey right now and Johan Holmqvist has been making some great saves, plus he's not given up a goal in OT. Marty and Vinnie are up near the top in the leaderboard in scoring. Maybe we'll get another cup down here.
I'm going over to watch them play the Islanders in March, it'll be my first pro hockey game!

You'll love it!

The game is so much better live.

On TV you can't see the whole ice, and you also can't see the passes where the puck is actually off the ice by two or thee feet.

Almost like lacrosse, the way the players handle the puck in the air.

Caps Turn Aside Isles to End 3-Game Skid
Sunday, February 4, 2007 5:15 PM EST
The Associated Press
By DAVID GINSBURG

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Capitals won't win many games in which Alex Ovechkin is limited to a single shot in regulation, and they never fare well when extended to a shootout.

None of that mattered Sunday against the New York Islanders.

Alexander Semin scored the lone goal in a shootout, Olie Kolzig had 31 saves, and Washington snapped a three-game skid with a 2-1 victory.

Ovechkin, who leads the NHL with 33 goals, was held scoreless on just two shots — none through the first two periods. He also misfired in the shootout.

Ovechkin has at least a point in 43 of the Capitals' 54 games. He failed to get one Saturday in a 2-0 loss to Pittsburgh, and this marked the first time this season he didn't register a point in consecutive games.

But the Capitals got two points in the standings, and that's all that mattered to the second-year star, especially since Washington had won only two of 10 games.

"We will take these points. I'm happy we win," Ovechkin said. "We lose eight in 10 and we forget what it feels like winning. This game was important to us."

Kolzig was flawless in the shootout, stopping Miroslav Satan, Viktor Kozlov and Jason Blake. Washington was winless in five shootouts before Sunday.

"We finally got one," Kolzig said. "Hopefully it's a sign for us."

Mike Sillinger scored the lone goal for the Islanders, and Rick DiPietro stopped 30 shots. Each of the Islanders' last three defeats have come after they played to a tie in regulation.

"It's tough when you lose that extra point," coach Ted Nolan said. "The shootout is more of a skills competition. Sometimes they go in, sometimes they don't."

New York took no consolation in keeping Ovechkin entirely in check.

"He's probably one of the best players in the league," said defenseman Brendan Witt, a former Capitals player. "You have to take away his time and space because he's got all the tools."

In the shootout, Semin went first. He went straight at DiPietro, deked right and stuffed a backhander into the net. Kolzig did the rest.

"Olie played the last two games unbelievably and we haven't given him much support. But he came through in the shootout," said Matt Pettinger, who scored the Capitals' lone regulation goal.

Washington went 0-for-4 on the power play and yielded a short-handed goal to Mike Sillinger. New York is 14-for-14 on the penalty kill over the last three games.

DiPietro hit the ice hard after being upended in the net by a sliding Ovechkin with 12:09 left in regulation, but remained in goal to the finish.

Minutes later, Ovechkin was called for interference. Shortly after he emerged from the penalty box he recorded his first shot, with 9:17 to go, but DiPietro cast it aside easily.

Down 1-0, the Islanders pulled even at 27 seconds of the middle period. With Witt in the penalty box, Trent Hunter took a shot from the left circle that glanced off Kolzig to Sillinger, who tapped in the rebound from right of the crease.

New York outshot Washington 13-5 in the period, in part because the Capitals were forced to kill three penalties. Bottled up in its own end for much of the time, Washington managed only one shot over the period's initial 14 minutes.

Kolzig kept the Capitals in the game with several fine saves, including one late in the period when he sprawled on his back to block a shot by Blake.

Frustrated offensively in Pittsburgh one day earlier, Washington wasted little time finding the back of the net against DiPietro. With just under three minutes elapsed, Pettinger slammed home the rebound of a wraparound shot by Richard Zednik.

That, however, would be the Capitals' lone goal.

Notes: The Capitals recalled G Frederic Cassivi from AHL Hershey and assigned G Daren Machesney to the same minor league club. ... Islanders C Alexei Yashin missed a third straight game with tendinitis in his right knee. ... It was the first of a season-high four successive home games for the Capitals.

Actually that game sucked for two periods, then it got 'great', lol.

Seriously though, the Devils team that showed up for the third period was radically different than the one that showed up for the first two. Seemed like someone read them the riot act between the second and third periods.

The Sabres fan club was in our section acting all stupid and talkin' trash at the start of the game. I have to think the ticket office must have placed them in this section on purpose, knowing full well that the most hardcore Devil fans are in that section. By the middle of the third period they looked sorry that they'd made the trip.

LMAO!

You should have heard the Buffalo TV folks between periods and then after the game.

Change of tune, for sure.

Miller was highly pissed about Madden's goal, but didn't say a word about the Elias shot he pulled out of the net and the refs didn't call a goal.

Another game that sucked for 2 periods last night at MSG...Wings spoiled Shanny's first game aginst them since joining the Rangers with 3 unanswered third period goals to win 4-3. -Brendan did score a nice goal in the first though.Two more points chasing Nashville for the Central lead.

Ottawa - Buffalo Wed. night should be a good one.
