Taylor Hall’s Point Streak Continues In Win Over The Pittsburgh Penguins

from Chris Ryan of NJ.com,

Points seem to be a matter of when, not if, for Taylor Hall these days.

The Devils forward recorded one goal and one assist to extend his personal point streak to 22 consecutive games played, while he added a point in the team's 15th straight game in a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday at PPG Paints Arena.

The 15-game streak — the one the NHL recognizes since Hall missed three games due to injury in the middle of his 22-game streak — is still the longest in the league this season.

The Nashville Predators Beat The Winnipeg Jets In A Central Division Battle

from Scott Billeck at NHL.com,

Ryan Hartman scored the game-winner with 1:00 remaining in the third period in his debut with the Nashville Predators in a 6-5 victory against the Winnipeg Jets at Bell MTS Place on Tuesday.

Hartman, who was acquired in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday, redirected Roman Josi's pass from the left face-off circle.

Josi had five assists, tying a Predators record for most points in a game.

"I didn't really have to do much for it, Josi put that right on my tape," Hartman said. "I saw that seam, obviously he saw that seam, and I just pretty much put my knee on my stick there to make sure I didn't get lifted under my stick. But he put that right on my tape."

Losing Streak Hits Seven For The St. Louis Blues

from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Their longest losing streak in eight years now stands at seven games (0-6-1) after a defensive meltdown of near-epic proportion against the Minnesota Wild at Bridgestone Arena.

"You know what? It's a matter of pride as far as I'm concerned," Yeo said. "You give up eight goals, c'mon. We've given up 16 in the last three games. We've always been one of the top defensive teams. The turnovers that we have and the lack of respect that we have for our goaltenders and for the game of hockey _ that's ridiculous."

A fuming Yeo mentioned Alex Pietrangelo, Jay Bouwmeester, Jaden Schwartz, Brayden Schenn, Alexander Steen, Vladimir Tarasenko, Kyle Brodziak, Scottie Upshall and Dmitrij Jaskin as players who he had no problem with on Tuesday.

Everybody else, he said he was not happy with.

"I like what those guys brought," he said, referring to the names he mentioned. "But we have too many guys that didn't match that. . . .The level of play of some players needs to come up, it's that's simple. Too many guys right now that aren't giving us a chance to win hockey games."

Morning Line- Jack Campbell

Campbell, on the team’s reaction after him getting his first win:
It just meant the world to me. Since I got traded here, the guys, I can’t speak highly enough about. So it was a really cool feeling and one I’ll never forget.

Campbell, on whether this game was just like any other:
I mean, for me it was a little bit more than just another game. Of course I want to prove to everybody, but most importantly my teammates, that they can count on me. So it was kind of weird because this was probably the biggest game I’ve played in and I felt the most comfortable just because of the surroundings and the locker room. Quickie was there to give me some tips on what their tendencies were and the boys played great in front of me, so it was awesome.

Something Special With The Vegas Golden Knights

from Arash Markazi of ESPN,

The fact that the Golden Knights were sellers and not buyers at the trade deadline means that they will have some free agents -- including Neal, Perron and Sbisa -- who will have big decisions to make in the offseason. All three said that their first choice would be to stay in Las Vegas.

"It's always a little weird at the trade deadline but our team is definitely a special group," Neal said. "We've been working for each other all year and feel things will stay the same and we'll continue to build and work toward our goal. I love it here and I hope everything works out so I can stay here for a long time."

Not only was McPhee aggressive at the trade deadline but Vegas owner Bill Foley says he will pay any price to bring a championship to Las Vegas -- which suggests that he will continue to be aggressive in the offseason with free agents, whether it's his own or players on other teams.

Patrice Bergeron Out With A Fractured Foot

BOSTON - Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, February 27, that forward Patrice Bergeron will be out with a fractured right foot and will be evaluated ‪in two weeks.

The injury occurred while blocking a shot during the team's game in Toronto on February 24. Following the game, Bergeron had an x-ray that was negative. Bergeron played through some discomfort in the team's game in Buffalo on February 25. Therefore, the Bruins medical staff determined it was best to have a secondary, more definitive CT scan on Monday in Boston, which revealed a small fracture.
