NHL Power Rankings: Penguins start up top
After a lockout-shortened season last year, we get a full 82-game slate this time around. Fresh with new divisions, there have been some surprise teams, both good and bad, some not-so surprising players, and even one coach already fired. And that’s just after the first week. Let’s dive right in and get to the rankings: 1) Penguins: Pittsburgh is off to a 3-0 start with goaltending, defense and offense all clicking. How did this team score four goals in getting swept in the Eastern Conference Finals last year? 2) Blues: A trendy Cup pick this season, St. Louis has had no problem on offense (11 goals) or defense (two goals allowed) thus far. 3) Sharks: An eerily similar start as last season, when they went 7-0, San Jose has allowed one goal in each game thus far as Antti Niemi has been brilliant. 4) Bruins: Tuukka Rask (two goals on 59 shots) has looked awfully impressive helping the Bruins start off the season with wins against the Lightning and Red Wings. 5) Avalanche: Patrick Roy has come in and led the Avalanche to their first 3-0 start in franchise history. Rookie Nathan MacKinnon – the first overall pick in this years draft – has been a big reason for that with an assist in each game. 6) Canucks: It’s Roberto Luongo’s team now and he gets the chance to prove to the Canucks that they made the right choice not trading him in the offseason, and instead sending Cory Schneider to the Devils. Thus far, he’s had two good starts and one bad start. 7) Blackhawks: Last years Stanley Cup champs are just 23 straight non-regulation losses away from breaking the record they set last year, going 21-0-3 to start the season. 8) Maple Leafs: After ending a long playoff drought last season, Toronto is out to prove that last season was no fluke, and so far, so good as they’re off to a 3-1 start. 9) Islanders: Despite blowing a 2-0 lead and losing in a shootout to the Blue Jackets this weekend, the Islanders have picked up five points in three games including a convincing 6-1 win over the Coyotes on Tuesday. 10) Lightning: Starting off your season with games against the Stanley Cup champs (Blackhawks) and Eastern Conference champs (Bruins) is no easy task, but the Lightning played well and finished a road trip, 2-1. Now they go home for seven games. 11) Red Wings: The Atlantic Division Red Wings (still sounds weird saying that) started out the season with wins over the Sabres and Hurricanes, and had no problem adjusting to their new Conference. 12) Jets: Defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and Tobias Enstrom are tied for the team lead with four points, which usually isn’t a good thing. But the Jets has two wins despite giving up 10 goals already this season. 13) Ducks: When the Ducks traded Bobby Ryan this offseason, they acquired little-known Jakob Silfverberg. He’s been the most impressive Duck this season with points in three straight games. 14) Senators: Ottawa starts the season off with six straight road games, and a healthy Craig Anderson, Jason Spezza and Erik Karlsson is a great sign for last year’s surprise team in the East. 15) Canadiens: Lars Eller had eight goals and 30 points last season. In two games, he has three goals and five points. 16) Blue Jackets: Last years Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky had an awful first start, but bounced back with a 28-save performance in a 3-2 shootout win over the Islanders on Saturday. 17) Kings: The Kings are off to a slow start again, allowing 10 goals in three games, but they’re more of a May-June team, anyway. 18) Capitals: Alex Ovechkin’s second-half surge last season has carried over to the 2013-14 campaign. He was voted the No. 1 star for the week with four goals in three games. 19) Rangers: It’s early but Henrik Lunqvist has already done something he rarely does – allow four goals in a game – and it’s happened twice in his three starts including getting pulled in Tuesday’s ugly 9-2 loss to the Sharks. 20) Stars: Looked impressive in a 2-1 win over the Capitals on Saturday. Now if only they could get that power play working (0-for-5). 21) Hurricanes: In their two losses, the Hurricanes have allowed 37 and 38 shots. This was a problem for them last year and appears to still be an issue in the early goings. 22) Coyotes: It’s been downhill since a season-opening 4-1 win against the Rangers, as they’ve allowed 10 goals in losses against the Sharks and Islanders. 23) Devils: Despite points in three straight games, the Devils are one of three winless teams in the league after blowing leads in all three of those games. 24) Flames: The good news: the Flames have points in three straight games. The bad news: they’ve allowed 12 goals in those games. 25) Wild: Three straight one goal losses to start the season for the Wild. For team with high expectations last season and again this season, things could get ugly in a hurry in Minnesota. 26) Flyers: Coach Peter Laviolette was fired after an 0-3 start, and new coach Craig Berube got his first win when the team beat the Panthers 2-1 on Tuesday. 27) Oilers: Head coach Dallas Eakins earned his first win Monday in a wild game, which saw the Oilers trail 3-0 in the third, take a 4-3 lead, only to later win in a shootout, 5-4 over the Devils. 28) Predators: Last season they scored the fewest goals in the league. They’re averaging two per game so far, but it’ll be another lost season if they can’t find any offense. 29) Panthers: The Time Thomas experiment hasn’t worked out so well. He allowed five goals in two periods of a 7-0 loss to the Blues and followed that up by suffering a lower body injury and being removed from Tuesday’s loss to the Flyers. 30) Sabres: Winless after four games, could the Sabres ‘ Ron Rolston be the next coach to get the axe?
Schneider, Devils fall in OT
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Jason Garrison scored at 2:18 of overtime and the Vancouver Canucks defeated the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Tuesday. Garrison’s shot from the point through traffic beat Cory Schneider in the goaltender’s first game against his former team. Daniel Sedin, with a goal and an assist, and Alexander Edler scored for Vancouver (3-1-0), which got 21 saves from Roberto Luongo who earned his 350th career win. Jaromir Jagr and Patrik Elias each had a goal and an assist for New Jersey (0-1-3), which was playing its second game in as many nights. Schneider, who finished with 29 saves, posted a 17-9-4 record with five shutouts, a 2.11 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage for Vancouver last season after supplanting Luongo as the starter. The 27-year-old appeared to be the Canucks’ goaltender of the future until he was traded to New Jersey at June’s draft after Vancouver was unable to move Luongo and his 12 year, $64 million contract. Schneider is now sharing the crease in New Jersey with 41-year-old Martin Brodeur, who allowed four goals on 27 shots in Monday’s loss to Edmonton. Tied 2-2 after two periods, the teams didn’t generate much in the third until the midway mark when Luongo was forced to make saves off both Elias and Jagr. Coming off a 5-4 shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Monday, New Jersey seemed content to lock down the neutral zone to get the game to overtime. Leading 1-0 after the first, Schneider made big stops on David Booth and Kevin Bieksa before the Devils doubled their lead at 7:25 on a strange play. New Jersey defenseman Anton Volchenkov threw the puck into the Canucks corner, but it took a deflection off the referee and fell to Elias, who fired a shot past Luongo that went in off Vancouver right wing Dale Weise. The Canucks responded at 8:51 on a shot from Sedin that deflected off Volchenkov’s skate and past Schneider. Vancouver then tied it up at 13:47 on Edler’s first of the season. With Devils left wing Ryane Clowe hobbling to the bench, the Canucks defenseman found a seam and tucked a shot under Schneider’s bar off a pass from Sedin. The Devils goaltender regrouped and stopped Jannik Hansen on a breakaway with under five minutes to go to send the game to overtime. New Jersey opened the scoring Tuesday with 68 seconds left in the first when Elias slid a cross-ice pass to Jagr, who one-time a shot past Luongo. With all of the pre-game hype focusing Schneider’s return to the scene of a goaltending soap opera that polarized fans in the city for more than a year, both he and Luongo stole the show early. Luongo made a stop on Jagr from in close just under two minutes into the game and followed that up with a toe save on Travis Zajac. He then stopped Steve Bernier late in the period. Not to be outdone by his former teammate, Schneider made a big stop on Canucks captain Henrik Sedin in the slot and robbed Brad Richardson with a toe save off the rush before Jagr snapped the 0-0 tie late in the first.

Devils lose to Oilers in shootout
EDMONTON, Alberta — The Edmonton Oilers certainly didn’t take the easy route to their first win of the season. Jordan Eberle and David Perron scored in the shootout for the Oilers, who erased a three-goal deficit in the third period against goalie Martin Brodeur and beat the New Jersey Devils 5-4 on Monday night. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Andrew Ference, Perron, and Taylor Hall all scored their first of the season in a 7:47 span to make it 4-3. But despite getting a power play with 2:51 left in regulation, the Oilers (1-2) were forced to go to overtime. Jason LaBarbera made 21 saves through the extra session and stopped both Devils attempts in the shootout. Brodeur made 23 saves, but was 0 for 2 in the tiebreaker. “We dominated for most of the game and then took a tough penalty, and from there it got a bit chaotic. It was a tough one,” Brodeur said. “Things like what happened don’t happen too often. “We are a veteran team and we should be able to play better under that kind of pressure. They are a good, young team, but we had them exactly where we wanted them.” The victory helped the Oilers avoid their worst start since 1995 when they were 0-4. “It’s tough to explain, but I’m glad we bounced back the way we did,” Perron said. “To lose the first three would have been a pretty tough way to start the year. I know everyone was pretty eager to get that first win, and now we can look forward to new things and keep moving.” While the Devils were still a man down late, New Jersey pulled Brodeur for an extra skater, and Patrik Elias netted the tying short-handed goal with 54 seconds remaining. Ference, the Oilers’ 14th captain, said his team just needed to get over early-season jitters. “We just want to win so bad. You see it with teams at the start of the year if you can’t get in the win column right away,” he said. “You can’t be out there scared to lose. There is an element of fear in every person that plays sports, but that has to be outweighed by the desire to win. “You can’t be paralyzed with the fear of losing.” Oilers coach Dallas Eakins also earned his first career win. “If you lose one game, it’s not hanging over your head, but I felt that they were feeling the challenge of us having lost two games and they didn’t want to get it to three,” he said. “I just asked them to stay with it and believe in themselves, and they did. “They finally got rewarded for their hard work and their patience.” Jaromir Jagr scored his first goal for the Devils (0-1-2), and Damien Brunner added his third of the young season to give New Jersey a two-goal lead in the first. Michael Ryder made it 3-0 in the second. Nugent-Hopkins, making his season debut following shoulder surgery, started the Oilers’ comeback 5:43 into the third after a mad scramble during a power play in front of the Devils net. That spoiled Brodeur’s shutout bid and left the Oilers as one of only three teams never to be blanked by Brodeur. Edmonton made it 3-2 at 9:28 when Ference scored on a point shot through traffic. The momentum shifted wildly, and the Oilers tied it at 11:47 when Perron plucked the puck out of a faceoff in the Devils end and picked the corner for his first goal with Edmonton since being acquired from St. Louis. The Oilers took the lead just 1:43 later. Ales Hemsky chipped a puck off the boards to Hall, who was alone in front and slipped the puck between Brodeur’s legs. “It’s a learning experience for us early in the season, and we’ve got to be better,” Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. “I don’t like leaving points on the table like that, especially after being up 3-0. “The puck bounced right for them in the third period, and they capitalized, to their credit. It was a strange game.” But the Devils staged a rally, too, to rescue one standings point. Elias threw a puck on net that banked off Ference’s skate and into the net to get the game to overtime. Jagr put the Devils ahead on the game’s first shot 2:59 in, and Brunner made it 2-0 at 8:01. After a giveaway deep in the Oilers’ end, the Devils had a 2-on-1 break. Ryder elected to take the shot and fired the puck into the top corner.

Devils’ Brodeur shaky in shootout loss
When he was in the prime of his career, the Devils scoring three goals with Martin Brodeur in net would almost surely result in a win. But the 41-year-old future Hall of Famer, whose career could end after this season, was unable to make two one-goal leads stand up Friday night in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders at the Prudential Center in Newark. Of the three goals Brodeur allowed in regulation, two were through his five-hole, with the other finding its way over his stacked pads on a Michael Grabner breakaway. “I’d like to get one goal back. I think I made the right decision on the first goal, I was just unlucky and the puck kind of snuck through my pad there,” Brodeur said. “Apart from that, I made the saves that were important in the hockey game. “It’s amazing how many breakaways that guy gets,” Brodeur added referring to Grabner who had four shots, three on beak aways. Starting in his NHL-record 19th consecutive home opener, a streak that began in 1993, Brodeur looked shaky in the first period, but kept the Devils in the game in the third period and the shootout with 10 saves and five more in the shootout. Head coach Pete DeBoer wasn’t blaming the loss on his goalie. “He gave us a chance to win,” DeBoer said. “He found another level there in the third period to let us hang around and give us a chance. Stopped five of six in the shootout. He’s doing everything he can to try and get two points.” The question now will be how many games will Brodeur start this season, after the Devils acquired Cory Schneider from the Canucks in the offseason. Schneider started the Devils’ first game, a 3-0 loss to the Penguins on Thursday, and could end up playing more games than Brodeur, something that hasn’t happened in Brodeur’s entire career. He has the most wins in NHL history, owns numerous other records, and will be a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame when he is eligible. But Brodeur saw the positives in the game, despite not getting the two points. “It’s a big point. We’ve got to start somewhere,” he said. “Shuffling a little bit in the shootout. New faces after new faces. It’s going to take time a little bit. We need to give ourselves a little time here.”  
Islanders top Devils in shootout to cap sloppy game
If the preseason has ended, it surely wasn’t apparent Friday night during a sloppy contest at the Prudential Center in Newark, in which the Islanders edged the Devils, 4-3, in a shootout. It was the Devils home-opener, and the Islanders’ season-opener. Both teams often got pinned in their own zone and made a handful of systematic breakdowns from the drop of the puck to the finish. Yet, it was also a fast-paced an entertaining contest. The game-winner came when the Isles’ Matt Moulson put one by Devils goalie Martin Brodeur in the sixth round of the shootout. Brodeur was playing in his 19th consecutive home-opener for the Devils, although his streak of season-openers ended the night before, when Cory Schneider got the start for a 3-0 loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh. For most of this night, Brodeur was outplayed by his counterpart, Evgeni Nabokov, who often made up for his team’s defensive breakdowns with athletic saves and pipe-to-pipe quickness. Yet, Brodeur made some crucial saves in the third period, none more impressive than on Pierre-Marc Bouchard with 6:30 remaining in the period. Brodeur reached back with his leg and stopped a cross-ice tip in from Bouchard, reminiscent of his “scorpion save” on Marian Gaborik during the Eastern Conference finals two seasons ago. The third period started with the teams tied 2-2, and even then somehow the game opened up. Frans Nielsen and Michael Grabner played a short-distance game of give-and-go early in the period and Nielsen netted the go-ahead goal after Brodeur reached for a poke check and missed. The Devils’ new addition, Damien Brunner, tied it six minutes later scoring his second goal of the night from in front, just moments after a bad penalty to Islanders rookie Brock Nelson expired. The Devils seemed to take control early in the second period, when they went up 2-1 on Michael Ryder’s first goal with the team, a nifty little wrist shot from the left dot that beat Nabokov over his right shoulder. Although the Devils dictated the play for the next 10 minutes, it all shifted when Anton Volchenkov got caught at his offensive blue line and Grabner snuck behind him. Taking a pass off the boards from Josh Bailey, Grabner raced in and beat Brodeur between his legs for his second goal of the game, tying it 2-2. The first period was a sloppy endeavor for both teams, and the Devils struck first, just 2:30 in, when Dainius Zubrus took a hard wrist shot from the slot that hit Nabokov in the shoulder, then bounced off the crossbar. Brunner swatted it out of midair to give the Devils a 1-0 lead. Just under five minutes later, Grabner sped right, past Ryane Clowe and Adam Larsson, coming in and sneaking a low forehand under the staked pads of Brodeur, tying it 1-1. The period ended with the Isles up in shots, 9-7.

Devils fall to Penguins in opener
PITTSBURGH — Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 28 shots for his 250th NHL victory and franchise-record 24th shutout, and Sidney Crosby scored in Pittsburgh’s two-goal first period to lead the Penguins to a 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night in the season opener for both teams. Chuck Kobasew and Craig Adams added goals for the Penguins, who took control early. Kobasew and Crosby scored less than four minutes apart in the first, and Adams made it 3-0 midway through the third to celebrate his 800th career game in style. Cory Schneider made 18 saves for the Devils. Schneider’s start marked the first time in 19 years Martin Brodeur didn’t play in the season opener for New Jersey. Brodeur is expected to start Friday at home against the New York Islanders. Rather than head in a different direction after a disappointing four-game sweep at the hands of the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals last spring, the Penguins fortified the core that has been together for five occasionally brilliant seasons. Pittsburgh signed stars Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang to long-term extensions, brought back Dupuis, and added two years to coach Dan Bylsma’s contract. The only alterations to the roster were minor. Defenseman Rob Scuderi returned to Pittsburgh four years after helping them win the franchise’s third Stanley Cup title. Kobasew earned a spot following a solid training camp, and 19-year-old rookie Olli Maatta did enough to stick around — at least for a bit — while Letang recovers from a lower-body injury. Kobasew wasted little time making an impact, scoring 9:26 into the season when he jammed in a rebound of Brandon Sutter’s shot. Crosby doubled the lead a few minutes later when he and Pascal Dupuis created a two-on-one. When the New Jersey defenseman slid over to cover Dupuis, Crosby wristed a shot over Schneider’s glove. It was all the insurance Fleury would need. The Penguins stuck with the former No. 1 pick following a second straight flameout in the playoffs, believing he and veteran Tomas Vokoun made up the best tandem in the league. But that duo will be split up for at least three months as Vokoun recovers from blood clots discovered early in training camp. The injury leaves rookie Jeff Zatkoff as the lone backup, meaning Fleury will almost certainly be a workhorse while Vokoun recovers. The early returns were promising. Fleury was stellar from the opening faceoff and even stopped a penalty shot by Adam Henrique late in the third period to preserve the shutout. While the Penguins stood pat in the offseason, things are hardly as settled in New Jersey, which failed to make the playoffs last season for only the third time in 23 seasons. David Blitzer and Joshua Harris took over as owners of the financially troubled franchise in August, and Schneider was acquired in a trade with Vancouver to take some of the workload off the 41-year-old Brodeur. The Devils also brought in well-traveled Jaromir Jagr, taken 15 spots ahead of Brodeur in the 1990 NHL draft, four years before Maatta was born. Playing in the newly minted Metropolitan Division, the Devils will likely have to pull a few surprises to reach the postseason. The Penguins, meanwhile, will likely only be judged on what happens in the spring.
NY’s play-by-play men went to dinner: Guess who stole the show?
What happens when almost all of New York’s play-by-play men get together for the first time? “Everyone told stories about people that we worked with,” Yankees play-by-play man Michael Kay said. “So, obviously those can’t be made public, but there were an awful lot of laughs.” Kay was one of the 13 broadcasters who convened at restaurant B.L.T. on Park Avenue on Monday night, an idea sparked by Knicks’ MSG play-by-play man Mike Breen. They were joined by Spero Dedes (Knicks radio), Gary Cohen (Mets TV), Bob Wischusen (Jets radio), Steve Cangialosi (Devils TV), John Sterling (Yankees radio), Ian Eagle (Nets TV), Howie Rose (Islanders TV and Mets radio), Matt Loughlin (Devils radio), Chris Carrino (Nets radio), Kenny Albert (Rangers radio) and Chris King (Islanders radio). Bob Papa (Giants radio) and Sam Rosen (Rangers TV) were the only two unable to attend. “The star of the night to me had to be Ian,” Kay said, “He could be a comedian. He could imitate people, his comedic timing, he was on fire. Gary and Howie told a lot of stories, which were really funny. Sterling had a couple. A lot of us just listened, me and Mike mostly sit back and laughed really hard. Bob Wischusen told a lot of stories.” Kay said it had the makings of the start of a yearly tradition, but finding an open date could be a problem. This week’s get-together fell between the end of baseball’s regular season and the start of the NHL and NBA. Only the Yankees missing the playoffs made Monday a possibility. “The only difficult thing is finding a day, that might be the only day we can it, that or the day after the All-Star break,” Kay said.
