Red Wings-Sabres quick take: point gained, frustrating point lost

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

The Detroit Red Wings faced off against the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night, with the Wings looking to extend their 3-game winning streak against a Sabres team whose goaltender, Anders Nilsson, has one of the best home-ice records in the league.

Nilsson out-dueled Petr Mrazek despite 70 Wings shot attempts and 34 shots on net as the Red Wings were undone by a struggling power play, lost puck battles and a terrible non-call in OT as Buffalo won 3-2 in overtime.

Danny DeKeyser, who got walked around by Ryan O'Reilly on the 2-2 goal, was hooked around the hands by the same player, and the puck made its way to Kyle Okposo, who slid the puck past Mrazek at 4:34 of OT...

But the Wings had an OT power play of their own that wasn't demonstrative, the Wings just played kind of sloppy hockey for many stretches on the night, and Darren Helm's return wasn't enough to give the Wings the grit and jam they needed to grind out a heavily-needed win over the Sabres.

P.K. Subban Returns Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Nashville Predators,

The Nashville Predators activated defenseman P.K. Subban from Injured Reserve on Friday and expect him to play tonight in Edmonton.

The 27-year-old blueliner has missed the previous 16 games with an upper-body injury. Subban had 17 points (7g-10a) in the Predators' opening 29 games before exiting with what he described as "a new injury."

Adding Subban back into the mix will be welcome addition for the Preds, who are also missing another franchise defenseman in Roman Josi (Injured Reserve; upper-body).

Clarke MacArthur Will Not Play This Season And Craig Anderson’s Timetable To Return

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Craig Medaglia of OttawaSenators.com,

Senators GM Pierre Dorion met with the media this morning to provide some injury updates and announced that Clarke MacArthur will not play this season.

MacArthur has been battling post-concussion symptoms for the better part of two years now and all indications up until today was that he was nearing a return to action this season. MacArtur was sidelined back in training camp during team scrimmage but was able to return to full contact practices in December.

"Clarke is devastated by this news," Dorion relayed to the media this morning. "He felt he didn't have any symptoms but I think in the long-term of this process we always said that the doctors would decide if Clarke was going to play."...

With MacArthur not an option to return this season Dorion has shifted his focus and is looking to acquire some forward depth at some point during the second half of the season. The Sens currently find themselves in second place in the Atlantic Division as they push for a return to the post-season.

"Right now the asking prices are ridiculous for rentals and for non-rentals," Dorion continued....

Some good news from this morning's media availability, it looks like Craig Anderson could return to the team later this month or in early February. Anderson took a personal leave back in December in order to be with his family while his wife Nicholle underwent cancer treatment. Dorion also expects that when Anderson's return to the team happens, it would be a permanent one.
