Bob McKenzie of TSN made his weekly appearance on NHL Live today and discussed Canada's WJC roster, the future of Jack Capuano and the health of Tylyer Seguin.
Ryan Garbutt of the Dallas Stars was involved in a collision with Ilya Bryzgalov which forced the Edmonton goaltender to leave the game.
from the CP at TSN,
"We were just still talking on the bench about, 'OK, it's a tie game. Let's get this thing (under control), stay the course, do that,' and next it's 3-2," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It just went boom, boom. They got the goal, and the crowd got into it, and then the rest is history."

NBCDFW with the story on Jim and Bekki Nill,
Daniel Sedin called for goalie interference but no penalty.
What did John Tortorella think of the call? Watch below...
from Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News,
Jim Lites, the Stars president, says he has a handshake agreement with Reaugh on a new deal. Strangis is another story.
Lites and Strangis haven’t talked in months. Lites says he has made an offer. Strangis said he has received nothing in writing and despite repeated requests he’s still waiting.
“I fear that Ralph might decide to go somewhere else,” Lites said over the phone during the Stars Canadian road trip. “I’m patiently waiting for him to come to his senses.”
Said Strangis, in his 24th season with the franchise that he accompanied from Minnesota in 1993, “I always believed I would finish my professional broadcasting career with the Dallas Stars but they’ve made me no written offer. With Razor apparently having been given his extension and Jim making no official offer to me, what conclusion would you draw?”
Back when they were talking, Lites mentioned a salary and a length of contract. Strangis appreciated neither. The conversation became heated.
Strangis remains miffed because he believes Reaugh has for years made more money and again was offered a sweeter deal. He wants to be more equally compensated.
Here are the Seguin goals and Jamie Benn had a great night too, 1 goal, 5 helpers.
FRISCO, Texas -The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has placed forward Ray Whitney on injured reserve, retroactive to Nov. 9 when he suffered a lower-body injury against the Chicago Blackhawks. The club has also recalled forward Travis Morin from the Texas Stars, Dallas' development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
So glad to see Erik Cole's head is still attached to his body.
from Michael Grange of Sportsnet,
Tyler Seguin will always consider Boston as something more than just another NHL city, but the question is: How will his first NHL city will come to think of him?
As the prodigal party boy the Bruins were better off cutting ties with while the cutting was good? Or as the latest elite NHL talent the Bruins cut adrift only to watch star in another market?
Tuesday Seguin and the Dallas Stars roll into TD Bank Garden for the first time since the controversial off-season trade. He doesn’t know what to expect.
“I’m not sure if I’ll get booed or if I’ll get a little applause my first time out there or whatnot,” Seguin says. “But I’m definitely excited about going back home.”
And not just because he gets to see what he describes as “a ton” of friends he made in Boston over three seasons there. It’s his first chance to stick it to an organization that drafted him, signed him to a six-year, $34.5-million contract extension and then smeared him on his way out the door.
