The Philadelphia Flyers Are Still Offensively Challenged

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

The Flyers ended their franchise's fifth-longest scoring drought earlier in the week, but their offensive funk continued Wednesday night in Brooklyn.

They scored an early goal but didn't generate many quality chances the rest of the night and fell to the New York Islanders, 3-1, at the Barclays Center.

The Flyers haven't scored an even-strength goal in 257 minutes, 58 seconds, more than four games ago. Their last even-strength goal was scored by Claude Giroux on Nov. 17 in a 3-2 shootout loss to Los Angeles.

They have scored one goal, total, in goalie Steve Mason's last three starts.

"It's been a struggle, obviously, the last few games to get the puck in the net, and for the goaltenders there's no room for error right now," said Mason after making 33 saves. "It just puts that much more emphasis on trying to be as perfect as possible. Just go out and focus on stopping the puck, and you just hope that the goals will come."

John Tortorella Not Happy With Blue Jackets Win Over The New Jersey Devils

from Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch,

It wasn’t pretty. It rarely is against the trap-happy New Jersey Devils.

But the Blue Jackets felt plenty fortunate — maybe even lucky — to have emerged with a 2-1 victory on Wednesday night before 13,567 at the Prudential Center.

And, even in victory, it appears that coach John Tortorella is wearing thin on patience.

“A number of things is maddening about our club right now,” he said. “I’m not going to talk about individuals. It was a team effort in sloppiness. We’re lucky we won.

“We have zero habits right now.”

Well, zero good habits, maybe.

Video- The Whistle Should Have Blown Devils/Blue Jackets

from Rich Chere of NJ.com,

The Devils trailed, 2-1, when a delayed holding penalty was being called against Columbus Blue Jackets winger Nick Foligno. Henrique ultimately scored the goal at 8:28, but the on-ice officials talked it over in a huddle.

That was something Devils coach John Hynes had never seen before.

"I haven't seen it," Hynes said.

Did he hear a whistle?

"No," Hynes said.

The goal was disallowed and referee Jean Hebert explained to Hynes that the whistle should have been blown when Blue Jackets forward Gregory Campbell touched the puck at 8:26.

"The referee just said they had touched it and hit it into the corner," Hynes said. "I have no more comment on the referee or the decision."

more on the play and the Devils did lose 2-1.

The Value Of Lee Stempniak

from Rich Chere of NJ.com,

It is being called one of the biggest free agent bargains in the NHL this past offseason. After a training camp tryout, veteran winger Lee Stempniak was signed by the Devils to a one-year, $850,000 contract.

So far Stempniak has scored 14 points in 17 games while fitting in perfectly as the Devils' first-line right winger. He's scored an overtime goal to defeat the Rangers at the Garden and the tying goal in Ottawa with 32 seconds remaining before winning that game against the Senators with his shootout goal.

But when Stempniak's name comes up in conversation, the talk usually centers on the fact that he's played for eight different NHL teams and been traded five times. The West Seneca, N.Y., native is the definition of well-traveled.

So how come nobody wants Stempniak? Or how come everybody wants him?

"There's value in him. He gets traded for draft picks or players, so I think there is value there," Devils GM Ray Shero told NJ Advance Media.

The Surprising New Jersey Devils

from Rich Chere of NJ.com,

Who would have guessed that the Devils would be in fourth place in the Eastern Conference and third in the Metropolitan Division midway through November?

Not many.

But that is exactly where they are after Saturday night's 4-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins before a sellout crowd at Prudential Center.

"We're in a good spot," goalie Cory Schneider said as the Devils are set to begin a three-game western Canada road trip. "This is going to be a challenging part of our schedule and I think so far we've responded well.

"But it's so fleeting in this league. All of a sudden you lose two or three in a row and you give some overtime points and you don't feel so good about yourselves. I think we've understood that. You can lose one, but you can't lose two. We've done a good job bouncing back. Hopefully we can maintain that mentality. This road trip will be a good test for us."

The Hot New Jersey Devils

from Rich Chere of NJ.com,

If it hasn't exactly been a dream start for the Devils, it's been an eye-opener.

After pulling out a 3-2 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks Thursday night at United Center, the Devils are 9-3-1 in their last 13 games.

"I don't think anyone in this room felt like we didn't have a chance to win games," veteran winger Mike Cammalleri told NJ Advance Media. "It's early, but there's a way to win every game if you can figure it out."

General manager Ray Shero is looking shrewd with moves like signing Russian rookie Sergey Kalinin, who scored the wining goal in Chicago, Lee Stempniak and defenseman John Moore. The trade that brought Kyle Palmieri is paying big dividends.

And rookie coach John Hynes is looking like a genius. Could he have imagined a start like this?
