Video- Dave Strader On Hockey Fights Canncer


Dave Strader statement a little over a moth ago: "With the start of the NHL season almost upon us, I wanted to share an update on my condition with everyone who has been kind enough to reach out over the past several months. In early June 2016, a tumor was found in my bile duct. I was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a fairly rare and aggressive form of cancer. "There is no cure for my cancer. However, at this point in time, it is treatable. With advancements in all areas of cancer treatments evolving so quickly, I'm fighting every day and doing everything the doctors tell me. The Stars' organization, the fans and the entire NHL family have been so supportive. It has meant so much to me, my wife Colleen and our entire family to know that we are not in this fight alone. I will work as many games as my condition and my treatments allow. Thank you again for all your love and support."   Hear from @TheVoiceDS as he gives words of encouragement on #HockeyFightsCancer Night. — Dallas Stars (@DallasStars) October 23, 2016

Struggles Continue For The Calgary Flames


from Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald, Mark Giordano accepted the blame for that one. But let’s back-up for a moment. There were many reasons why the Calgary Flames suffered a 6-4 loss to the visiting St. Louis Blues on Saturday night. They surrendered four straight goals. They continued to draw blanks on their league-worst power-play. They had another horrible display of puck management. They showed no support to their goalie. Their big stars were silent. They are still struggling with consistency, identity, systems … the list goes on. However, as the captain of the Flames, the defender’s second-period blunders were inexcusable and changed the course of the game. A holding penalty, taken out of frustration, turned into a four-minute timeout after he foolishly argued with the referee and was slapped with an unsportsmanlike conduct. continued Watch the game highlights below...

On Trouba And Lindholm


from Bruce Garrich of the Ottawa Sun, - The Jets and defenceman Jacob Trouba are at the stalemate stage. The word is there have been a couple of short discussions between Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff and Trouba’s Colorado-based agent Kurt Overhardt and we’re led to believe those may have been less than a minute. The Jets have made it clear they’re not going to just give Trouba away because he has asked for a trade and the reality is this all going to come to a head before Dec. 1. A restricted free agent, the 22-year-old Trouba has to sign somewhere by then or he may as well go spend the winter playing in Switzerland. “Every day he sits and waits for a trade is another day that costs him money,” a league insider told Insider Trading on Friday. Yes, the Bruins and Wings have both shown genuine interest, but Cheveldayoff is standing firm in getting what he wants in return. - The word is the Ducks are approximately $250,000 a year apart on a six-year deal with RFA defenceman Hampus Lindholm. Many expect the situation to resolve itself soon and for Lindholm, who was believed to be demanding more than $6 million per season when the negotiation started. Once he does sign, the Ducks will have a decision to make on defence and many teams have called about Cam Fowler. The Wings and Bruins have been the most aggressive, but it’s believed the Sabres have also been pushing hard as well. more talk....

NHL Short Notes


MULTI-GOAL COMEBACK TREND CONTINUES The trend of multi-goal comebacks in the NHL continued Saturday as four teams – the Blackhawks, Rangers, Flyers and Canucks – stormed back to earn at least one point:   * Facing a 4-2 deficit with less than three minutes remaining in regulation, the Blackhawks scored two goals exactly 60 seconds apart to tie the game and set the stage for Artemi Panarin (0-2—2) to seal a victory in the shootout.   * The Rangers scored four unanswered goals – including the tying and winning markers three minutes apart by Jimmy Vesey – to rally past the Capitals.   * The Flyers fell behind 2-0 in what became a seven-goal second period, but responded with four straight tallies of their own – powered by Jakub Voracek (2-1—3) and Shayne Gostisbehere (1-2—3) – to snap a three-game skid.   * Forward Dustin Brown (1-2—3) helped the Kings build a three-goal lead, but the Canucks rallied to tie the game with 34.4 seconds remaining in regulation before Los Angeles ultimately won in a shootout. It marked the first loss of any kind for Vancouver this season.   * Elias notes that there have been 17 instances this season in which a team has overcome a multi-goal deficit to earn at least one point. The trailing team eventually won 13 of those 17 instances.
