Linesman pushed Marchand onto the bench area, then Marchand stepped back on the ice.

Tonight’s Hockey Notes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- Who will be coaching in the NHL next? Alain Vigneault? Joel Quenneville? Sheldon Keefe? Dallas Eakins? Darryl Sutter? Maybe Eakins in Anaheim. Maybe Keefe in Ottawa. Maybe Vigneault somewhere else — maybe in Ontario? There should be lots of interest in him.

- Buffalo will miss the playoffs for the eighth straight year, the fourth straight with Jack Eichel on board. Can’t believe Phil Housley will be back next season to coach the Sabres. Carolina has missed nine years in a row but is looking like a playoff team with three weeks to go.

- About a week ago, Frederik Andersen seemed a likely choice as one of the three nominees for the Vezina Trophy as best goaltender in the NHL.

Now, we’re not so sure.

This has probably been Andersen’s worst week as a Leaf. Toronto had three games at home and allowed 17 goals against, Andersen was pulled twice and he probably should have been pulled a third time Friday night against Philadelphia, where he almost put two more pucks by him with his own difficulty trying to make a play.

Topics Of Interest

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

- Mark Stone signed for $76 million over eight years in Las Vegas ($9.5M per), and about the very first thing an agent I’d called about an entirely different subject said was, “That’s about $95 million in New York with the taxes.”

Don’t the Rangers know it.

That is not only what New York franchises have to contend with in trying to compete for players with the Golden Knights, Lightning, Panthers, Stars and Predators — the five NHL teams operating in no state-tax states — but, to varying degrees, that is what every other team in the league confronts....

- Over the past eight drafts beginning with 2013, the Sabres have held the eighth-overall selection three times, second-overall twice and first-overall once and entered Saturday tied with the Rangers in points.

This after having been shut out three straight times, winning one of the past nine (1-7-1) — “Points in two!” — and going 9-20-4 since Christmas after entering the holiday hiatus 21-11-5.

That despite coming away with Jack Eichel, Rasmus Dahlin, Sam Reinhart (at two, one pick ahead of Leon Draisaitl’s selection by Edmonton in 2014, the year the Islanders took Michael Dal Colle at five, three slots ahead of William Nylander going to Toronto), Rasmus Ristolainen, Alex Nylander and Casey Mittelstadt with those top-end picks....

League Wide Notes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

- No decision yet who will be GM of the expansion Seattle franchise. But league-wide rumors have it down to a three-man short list, Mark Hunter, Ron Hextall and Kelly McCrimmon. Hunter, with a sharp eye for draft talent, resigned as assistant GM in Toronto last spring when Kyle Dubas was named GM. Hextall was canned this season as the Flyers GM. McCrimmon, brother of former Bruins defenseman Brad McCrimmon, joined the expansion Vegas franchise as assistant GM after a dozen years of head coach and GM duties with WHL Brandon.

- Bruins short-timer Rick Nash, now retired after his fling spring with the Bruins in 2018, recently moved back to Columbus and soon will begin working in an undefined role with the Blue Jackets front office, headed by GM and former Bruin forward Jarmo Kekalainen. Nash, age 34 and with upward of $100 million in career earnings, called it quits over concerns related to his history of concussions.

- The official start date for the Stanley Cup playoffs is April 10. It presents a conflict for the Bruins if they hold on to the home-ice advantage. The TD Garden calendar has a “Muse” concert listed for 7:30 that night . . . As of Friday morning, the 16 teams in possession of postseason berths all qualified for the playoffs if wins were the sole criterion for making the cut. In other words, the whole “loser point” thing is just smoke and mirrors. Better to dump the scam and rank teams on wins and losses only. Like other adult leagues.

Report- Justin Abdelkader Out For The Rest Of The Season

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

via Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Detroit Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader is out 3-4 weeks with a hairline fracture in his leg, likely ending his season.

Abdelkader was injured when he blocked a shot in Thursday’s 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning at Little Caesars Arena.

It has been a rough season for Abdelkader, who ended a 40-game goal-scoring drought on Thursday but produced only six goals and 13 assists in 71 games, while posting a minus-14 rating.

He had appeared in every game until Saturday.
