    NHL notebook: Senators' Karlsson to debut vs. Canucks
    October 16, 2017


    Ottawa Senators captain Erik Karlsson will make his season debut in Tuesday's home game versus the Vancouver Canucks, the team announced Monday.

    Karlsson missed the Senators' first five games of the campaign after undergoing offseason surgery to fix tendons in his left foot. Ottawa has played well in the absence of the two-time Norris Trophy recipient, winning three straight to improve to 3-0-2 on the season.

    Karlsson recorded 18 points while playing in all 19 postseason games last spring for the Senators in their run to the Eastern Conference final.

    The 27-year-old Swede, who led all NHL defensemen in scoring in three of the last four seasons, has collected 117 goals, 339 assists and 280 penalty minutes in 556 career contests.

    --The Montreal Canadiens
    and defenseman Mark Streit mutually agreed to terminate his contract, the team announced.

    Streit cleared waivers last week but did not report to Laval of the American Hockey League. The 39-year-old was placed on unconditional waivers Sunday.

    Signed to a one-year, $700,000 contract in July, Streit averaged 14 minutes of ice time and registered a minus-2 rating in two games this season with Montreal (1-3-1).

    --The Winnipeg Jets placed forward Mathieu Perreault on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.

    Perreault exited in the third period of Saturday night's 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Perreault, 29, has one goal, two assists and four penalty minutes in five games this season.

    In a corresponding move, the Jets recalled forward Kyle Connor from the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.

    --The Arizona Coyotes recalled Adin Hill from the Tucson Roadrunners and assigned fellow goaltender Marek Langhamer to the American Hockey League affiliate.

    Hill, 21, has a 1-1-0 record with a .968 save percentage and 0.65 goals-against average and one shutout in two games with the Roadrunners this season. Last year, the Comox, British Columbia, native was 16-14-6 with a .906 save percentage and 3.16 goals-against average.

    Langhamer, 23, has not played a game with the Coyotes this season. He appeared in one game last season.

    Stamkos back, quietly helping Lightning to strong start
    October 18, 2017


    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Steven Stamkos isn't making any brash predictions about how long it might take to regain the form that's made him one of the most prolific goal scorers in the NHL over the past decade.

    It's not the two-time Rocket Richard Trophy winner's style.

    And, it's not necessarily what the Tampa Bay Lightning need their captain - back from knee surgery that sidelined him the final five months of last season - to do to re-establish themselves as championship contenders.

    ''Anytime you're out for as long as I was it's going to take time to get adjusted back to game speed,'' Stamkos said, noting a grueling rehab included lots of drills on the ice but nothing that could truly replicate a game.

    ''When you go through something like that you just have to find ways to put yourself in a position to feel good and still find a way to be the player you know you can be,'' he added. ''My expectations are that I'm going to get back to that player, hopefully right away. That's the plan, and that's why you put in the work.''

    Two weeks into the season, he's headed in that direction.

    With Stamkos and linemates Nikita Kucherov and Vladislav Namestnikov leading the way, the Lightning are off to a sizzling start after missing the playoffs last spring.

    The 24-year-old Kucherov (seven goals, three assists) has emerged as the team's top offensive player, while Stamkos, 27, is prospering as more of a setup man (one goal, eight assists) than primary scorer through six games.

    The four-time All-Star notched at least a point in Tampa Bay's first six games, including assists on each of the red-hot Kucherov's two goals during Monday night's 3-2 road victory over the Detroit Red Wings.

    Stamkos, who underwent surgery last November, scored his first goal of the season against defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh.

    ''I knew it was a matter of time, so I wasn't losing any sleep over it,'' he said. ''I'm just happy to be playing hockey again and glad to be part of some wins here.''

    The Lightning also got off to promising start a year ago before Stamkos had surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee and missed the final 65 games of the season.

    Tampa Bay surged late, but missed the playoffs by one point after reaching the Stanley Cup Final and Eastern Conference finals the previous two years.

    With productive young talent such as Kucherov, Namestnikov, Tyler Johnson, Brayden Point and Ondrej Palat also in the lineup, the Lightning are not nearly as dependent on Stamkos' goal-scoring prowess as they were earlier in his career.

    The Lightning, however, clearly missed his presence while he was out.

    ''He's a big contributor on the ice and in the locker room. It feels good to have him back here,'' defenseman Victor Hedman said.

    ''Steven looks like Steven. It seems like he's right back into it,'' forward Ryan Callahan said. ''He's had a couple of good plays, and he's been good on the power play. That's part of what makes him special. He has those instincts. Just shows that no matter how much time he had off, he's still got those skills.''

    The line of Stamkos, Kucherov and Namestnikov also worked well before he went down early last season. Taking up where they left off, the trio combined for 10 goals and 15 assists in the first six games.

    ''I think we just are able to read off each other,'' said Stamkos, who's in the second season of an eight-year, $68 million contract he signed in 2016.

    ''When you have that chemistry,'' he added, ''sometimes there's an element of it being natural.''

    Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman talked during training camp about how self-motivated Stamkos is and noted he was doing everything necessary to give himself a chance for a successful comeback.

    Coach Jon Cooper likes what he's seen, too.

    The captain's first goal not only helped the Lightning beat the Penguins, but also tied the club's career record for power-play goals (112).

    ''Well, you want to see all these guys get their first because the longer it carries on, especially with the goal scorers, you can see the pressure they are putting on themselves,'' Cooper said.

    ''You just see him getting stronger and stronger and more confident,'' the coach added. ''When they get one, especially guys of Stammer's offensive capabilities, they can really get hot.''

    'Young Mario' Matthews continues to reinvent ways to score
    October 17, 2017


    WASHINGTON (AP) Auston Matthews is drawing comparisons to Mario Lemieux and getting noticed by Bryce Harper amid a hot start to his second NHL season.

    Last season's Calder Trophy winner as rookie of the year, Matthews went into training camp seeking to be more assertive on the ice. That has translated to five goals and three assists in his first six games and the kind of improved all-around play that makes the face of the Toronto Maple Leafs a superstar already at age 20.

    ''He's got a skillset that ranges from just about everything,'' Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri said Tuesday. ''The ceiling's the limit for Matts, and he knows he can be a great player and he already is. It's crazy to think he's (still) at such a young age.''

    Even though Matthews remains in the shadow of Connor McDavid and Sidney Crosby on hockey's pantheon of top players, he already has filled up the highlight reel thanks to some tweaks and adjustments. The Scottsdale, Arizona, native was the first rookie to score 40 goals since Alex Ovechkin in 2005-06 and is conscious of the pressure to keep up that pace.

    ''You're always reinventing yourself,'' Matthews said. ''The league's always adjusting and you've got to adjust right back to it.''

    The league hasn't adjusted yet. Matthews showed that by scoring goals so many different ways this season.

    Matthews scored an overtime winner against Chicago by taking the puck off a carom off the back of Patrick Kane's right skate and going down the ice. Against Montreal, he scored one goal by flipping the puck past a Canadiens defender and knocking it down at full speed before firing through a screen, and then another on the rush by shooting short side on 2015 Vezina Trophy winning goaltender Carey Price.

    ''For me, the first (Montreal goal) was probably a little more impressive just how he handled the pass and you see how much he changed the angle,'' Toronto winger James van Riemsdyk said. ''He's really good at changing the angle, getting it off quick, things like that. He's got a lot of different shots that he'll try within his toolbox. It makes him pretty unpredictable when he's going to shoot it.''

    Matthews has only played 88 regular-season and six playoff games and yet has admirers far and wide.

    Harper wore a brand new blue No. 34 Matthews jersey out of the Washington Nationals' clubhouse after their season-ending Game 5 loss to the Chicago Cubs last week. Matthews said he doesn't know Harper, who's from Las Vegas, but called the honor ''awesome.''

    Capitals coach Barry Trotz has been watching Matthews' growth and likened him - already - to a Hockey Hall of Famer and one of the best players in history.

    ''Auston Matthews, I've been saying it: He's a young Mario Lemieux,'' Trotz said. ''He's (big), he can skate, he's ultra-skilled, he's very, very competitive, he makes plays.''

    Matthews' rookie success earned him another believer: himself. He said last month he was aiming to trust his skills more and want the puck more. With the season underway he said ''you just want to be the best player you can be,'' and that's evident with how much the line of Matthews, Zach Hyman and William Nylander have had the puck.

    ''We've been able to create offense, which is important, and that leads to chances,'' Nylander said. ''That's always a positive.''

    At even strength, Matthews has been on the ice for 80 Leafs shots and 64 by opponents, evidence of just how much his evolving defensive game benefits the Maple Leafs.

    ''When you play well defensively, you feel like you get the puck more,'' Matthews said. ''We're offensive guys. We want to create offense so when you have the puck it feels good and you feel like you can create chances.''

    Those chances are coming, and Matthews is cashing in on them. No wonder he has earned coach Mike Babcock's trust.

    ''He's a good player trying to get better each and every day,'' Babcock said. ''What I like about him is how hard he works and how competitive he is and how much he wants to get better. The best players in the league, the superstars, they love hockey more than everyone else, so they can work at it harder and longer than the next guy.''

    Matthews downplays his own improvements but sounds like a perfect Babcock-type player when discussing his early-season success.

    ''I feel good,'' Matthews said. ''Just a couple weeks in, so you want to find that consistency individually, with your linemates, with everybody. You just want to continue to get better every day.''

    Wednesday’s six-pack

    More NBA over/under win totals for the coming season:

    Minnesota Timberwolves 48.5

    Miami Heat 43.5

    Philadelphia 76ers 42.5

    New York Knicks 30.5

    Brooklyn Nets 28.5

    Atlanta Hawks 25.5

    **************************

    Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings……..


    13) 5:15 into the Boston Celtics’ season, Gordon Hayward severely injured his leg/ankle when he came down on an attempted alley-oop. It was a gruesome injury, reminiscent of Jason Kendall or Joe Theismann’s grotesque leg injuries.

    12) Damn, this is Lebron James’ 15th year in the NBA? Time flies. I remember sitting in a bar having dinner, watching his high school game that ESPN showed. Think Bill Walton was the TV analyst that night; people were excited that Lebron scored 31 points.

    Hell, I thought, if he’s going to be in the NBA next year, he SHOULD score 31 points in a high school game, shouldn’t he?

    Obviously, Lebron has outperformed those huge expectations; good for him.

    11) By the way, sounds like pretty soon, kids will able to go straight from high school to the NBA once again, which helps everyone, except veterans trying to hang on in the G-League.

    10) Indianapolis Colts in the fourth quarter this season: they’ve been outscored 85-22, allowing 1,034 yards on 139 plays, an average of 7.4 yards per play.

    Colts are 2-4, but they haven’t trailed at halftime since Week 1 against the Rams.

    9) Tennessee Titans have 7 takeaways in six games, but they’re the only team in NFL that hasn’t scored a touchdown after one of their takeaways.

    Titans-Colts game Monday night had no punts in the first half, the first game in NFL this season without a first half punt.

    8) Injured Vikings’ QB Teddy Bridgewater is practicing this week, as he comes back from his severe knee injury; Minnesota has three weeks to decide whether to activate Bridgewater or IR him for the rest of the season. Bridgewater and Sam Bradford are both in the last year of their contracts; Vikings have some interesting decisions ahead of them.

    7) Chicago Bulls Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic got into a fight today at practice and Mirotic wound up with broken bones in his face; he’s going to be out for a few weeks, at least.

    Curious how the analytics geniuses take this into account when they measure Portis, Mirotic as players. There is a human element to sports that can never be quantified— these guys live and travel together for months at a time. Part of being a good teammate is staying out of fights that send yourself or teammates to the hospital.

    6) Best red zone offenses in NFL:
    Packers 5.68 pts/possession, Eagles 5.56, Cowboys 5.33, Texans 5.25— Aaron Rodgers is gone for the year, so going forward, Green Bay’s numbers figure to drop dramatically.

    5) Best offenses on drives starting 75+ yards from end zone:
    Saints 2.47, Chiefs 2.46, Titans 2.37, Patriots 2.16

    Worst offenses on drives starting 75+ yards from end zone (includes points lost on TD”s scored by the opposing defense):
    Colts 0.42, Bengals 0.51, Buccaneers 0.91, Lions 0.97

    4) Most plays of 20+ yards this season:
    Rams 31, Vikings 30, Patriots/Cardinals 29, Chiefs 27

    3) Most TD’s on plays of 20+ yards:
    Raiders 8 (out of 13 total TD’s), Chiefs 7 (18 total TD’s), Titans 7 (13 total TD’s), Jets 6 (11 total TD’s), Lions 6 (14 total TD’s)

    2) Baseball update:
    AL: New York 6, Houston 4— Astros’ bullpen imploded; series is tied 2-2.
    NL: Dodgers 6, Cubs 1– Chicago is going down meekly.

    1) One of the best days of the year for me is when the Blue Ribbon Yearbook arrives at my door every October; the bible of college basketball, Blue Ribbon has a ton of useful information in it, and it got here Monday. If you like college basketball, it is well worth your time.

    In the Crease - Week 3
    October 18, 2017


    STREAKY TEAMS

    Wins and Losses Streak Over/Under Streak
    Arizona 0-3 past three road games Anaheim Under 5-1 past six overall
    Los Angeles 4-0-1 past five overall Florida Over 5-0 past five overall
    N.Y. Rangers 1-5-1 past seven overall Minnesota Over 4-0 past four overall
    Ottawa 3-0 past three road games N.Y. Islanders Under 5-1 past six overall
    Tampa Bay 4-0 past four home games Toronto Over 5-1 past six overall


    Over Easy
    The Florida Panthers have hit the 'over' in each of their five games so far this season. Defense and goaltending haven't been a strong suit of the Panthers to date, allowing 4.0 goals per game through their five outings. The offense has done its past, except for in a 5-1 loss at Philadelphia on Tuesday. Florida is averaging 3.6 GPG in their five appearances. Next up for the Panthers is a home date with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night in Sunrise. Sidney Crosby and company have scored 25 goals through seven games, while yielding 29 goals, so it could be a track meet and another easy over result.

    Hab Nots
    The Montreal Canadiens have stumbled out of the chute with a 1-4-1 mark, posting just 10 goals on offense while yielding 22. Carey Price is struggling mightily in the crease, and the defense isn't doing him any favors, either. The over has hit in three of the past five for Montreal, but that's no thanks to their offense. The Habs are allowing 3.7 goals per game, and that number got worse in a 5-2 loss in San Jose on Tuesday night. The road trip through the Golden State continues in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The Habs are 1-5 over their past six road games dating back to last season, and they're 0-5 in their past five against winning teams.

    Looking Ahead

    Wednesday, October 18

    Two Original Six clubs hook up in Hogtown, and lately this series has been all Toronto. The Red Wings have dropped four in a row in this series, while the under is 12-3-1 in the past 16 meetings, and 6-1 in the past seven at Air Canada Centre. Toronto is off to a hot start, and they're scoring plenty ofgoals, too. The over has hit in five of their six games, although the under hit in Tuesday's 2-0 win at Washington. While the over is also 5-1 in their past six home games, the under has connected in 20 of their past 63 when playing the second end of a back-to-back. The Red Wings have won just eight of their past 28 against Eastern Conference foes while going 10-28 in their past 38 against Atlantic Division opponents.

    The Blackhawks haven't been very strong on the road dating back to last season, tasting victory just once in the past seven away from home. They're also just 1-8 over their past nine against Western Conference foes, while going 1-6 in the past seven inside the Central Division. St. Louis looks to take advantage, as they're 10-4 in their past 14 home games dating back to last season while cashing in 19 of the past 28 against Western Conference teams. Total bettors might like the over with these two rivals skating together. The over is 6-1-4 in the past 11 meetings, while going 7-3-6 in the past 16 battles in St. Louis.

    Thursday, October 19
    The Islanders and Rangers renew their heated rivalry at Madison Square Garden on Thursday. Lately the Isles have dominated this series, and that could continue with the Rangers struggling so. The Islanders have some seven of the previous eight meetings, while going 5-1 in their past six skates at MSG. The over is 4-1-1 in the past six meetings. If the over comes through it would be directly opposite to what has been happening for both teams so far. The under is 4-0 in the past four for the Isles, and 4-0 in their past four on the road. The under is 4-1 in the past five for the Rangers, while going 7-3-2 in their past 12 home games dating back to last season.

    Big things were expected from the Stars this season, but they have been mediocre at best. The Coyotes have been even worse, including a home-and-home loss to expansion Vegas. If the Stars are going to take that next step, they need to learn how to win on the road. They're just 9-25 over their past 34 road games, and they have followed up their past 35 victories with just eight wins and 27 losses. The 'Yotes have dropped four in a row on home ice, and they have won just 17 of their past 60 against Western Conferences clubs.

    Friday, October 20
    The Red Wings host the Capitals at Little Caesar's Arena. The Wings won on their new home ice against Minnesota on Oct. 5 in their regular season opener, but they lost 3-2 on Monday night. It Jimmy Howard's first setback of the season in four starts. The Capitals are expected to be very angry after getting blanked 2-0 by the Leafs on home ice Tuesday, following an 8-2 thrashing in Philadelphia last Friday. Over the past four games the Caps have been outscored 19-12. The 'over' has connected in each of Washington's four road games this season.

    The Wild head to MTS Centre as they try to shoot down the Jets. These clubs hooked up for four high-scoring battles in five meetings last season, with the Wild winning two of the three meetings in Winnipeg. The Wild outscored the Jets 14-12 in the three meetings, so you can expect some fire wagon hockey on Friday. The 'over' has hit in each of Minnesota's four games to date, as they have averaged 3.8 GPG while allowing 4.0 GP. Their only victory is a 5-2 win in Chicago on Oct. 12. Look for more fireworks on Friday night.

    Saturday, October 21
    The Sabres and Bruins renew acquaintances in Beantown on Saturday night, as both teams look for a little more consistency. Buffalo showed some signs of life in Vegas, fighting back out of a 4-1 hole to force overtime, before losing in the extra session. Still, it could give them some confidence going forward after a 1-4-2 start. The Bruins have yet to win consecutive games this season, splitting a pair of games at home. Boston swept the season series in 2016-17, winning all four games by a combined score of 13-4.

    The Penguins and Lightning get together for the second time this season. The Pens are looking to avenge a 5-4 loss in Tampa on Oct. 12, one of five overs in seven tries for the Lightning this season. The over is also 5-2 in Pittsburgh's seven games so far, and their offense appears to be on track yet again. The Penguins are averaging 4.0 GPG over their past five outings, and they have yielded 4.0 GPG over the past three. As such, Vegas has been installing the rare regular-season total line of six on four of their past five outings.

    NHL notebook: Blues activate Steen
    October 18, 2017


    The St. Louis Blues activated forward Alexander Steen from injured reserve ahead of Wednesday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Steen, 33, returned to practice Monday after missing the last seven games of the preseason and the first six games of the regular season with a broken left hand. He suffered the injury on Sept. 19.

    Steen totaled 51 points (16 goals, 35 assists) in 76 regular-season games with the Blues in 2016-17. The Winnipeg, Manitoba, native also appeared in 10 postseason games, finishing with three goals and four assists.

    In a corresponding move, the Blues placed forward Wade Megan on waivers.

    --The Boston Bruins
    recalled forwards Kenny Agostino and Peter Cehlarik from the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League.

    Agostino, 25, leads Providence with two goals and five assists for seven points (tied for third in AHL) in three games this season.

    Cehlarik, 22, is second on the team with two goals and three assists in three games with Providence.

    --The Chicago Blackhawks
    assigned forward Nathan Noel to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.

    Noel, 20, had 50 points (24 goals, 26 assists) in 52 regular-season games with the Saint John Sea Dogs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League during the 2016-17 season while adding nine points (two goals, seven assists) in 18 postseason games.

    Noel was selected by the Blackhawks in the fourth round of the 2016 NHL draft. He signed a three-year, entry-level contract in March. He has not played in an NHL game.
