NHL Short Notes

The Maple Leafs, Devils and Avalanche each secured Game 3 victories on Monday to cut their respective series deficits to 2-1:

* Maple Leafs forward Patrick Marleau scored his 69th and 70th career playoff goals to pass Gordie Howe (68) and move into a tie with Steve Yzerman for 16th place on the NHL’s all-time list. He recorded his ninth career multi-goal game in the postseason; only Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby(10) has more among active NHL players.

* Marleau (38 years, 213 days) became the oldest player in Maple Leafs history to score a goal in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, eclipsing the mark set by Norm Ullman (38 years, 109 days) in Game 4 of the 1974 Quarterfinals vs. BOS.

* MUST SEE: Frederik Andersen stopped 40 shots, including a highlight-reel stick save late in the third period to rob David Pastrnak of an open net and preserve a two-goal lead.

Afternoon Line- Erik Lief On The NHL And Concussions

Apparently, there's little doubt that Bettman's public denials are strategic, so as not to expose the NHL to a flood of litigation from injured former players and the families of late players, a scenario that eventually swamped the NFL to the tune of roughly $1 Billion. But considering how much we continually learn about the effects of hits to the head, brain trauma and CTE, it's now fair to ask: How much longer can Bettman keep up this ostrich routine?

Bill Peters Weighing His Coaching Options

from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,

The Carolina Hurricanes are still waiting on an answer from head coach Bill Peters.

Don Waddell, the Canes’ president and interim general manager, said Monday that Peters, who has coached the Hurricanes the past four years, has until Friday to exercise the exit clause on his contract. Waddell confirmed that Peters has one year remaining on his contract, with a $1.6 million salary.

Waddell said there have been calls to the Hurricanes asking permission to speak to Peters about coaching jobs, but did not say how many teams have called.

“I don't think he's fighting to get out the door,” Waddell said of Peters. “But that's his right, that's in his contract. He's got to weigh out all his options."
