Video-  Marcus Johansson On The Successful Offside Challenge By The St. Louis Blues

via NJ.com,

"It's a tough call. I think to me that's a possession play," Johansson said. "It's not a question if my foot's over the line first or not. When you have possession of the puck, you don't have to have the puck over the line first. So I guess the linesman thought I didn't have control. It's a tough call, but that's the way it goes. There's nothing you can do about it. It's not like we can challenge it back, right?"...

"You kind of start wondering what they're looking at when they look that long," Johansson said. "To me, it's pretty obvious if its' a possession play, it shouldn't take very long. Everybody knows that rule. If you have possession of the puck, you don't have to bring the puck in first, you can skate backward with it in. It's a tough call, but that's how they saw it."

The Devils lost 3-2 in a SO to the Blues.

Turnaround Season For The Colorado Avalanche Continues

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post,

Behind Nathan MacKinnon’s 15th multipoint game of the season and Johnson’s overtime breakaway goal, the Avalanche defeated the Central Division-leading Jets 3-2 on Tuesday night at the Pepsi Center to collect its 20th victory and improve to 8-3-1 in its last 12 games.

“It’s fun for us,” Johnson said of winning in 3-on-3 OT after blowing a 2-0 third-period lead. “Kind of a fluky way for them to tie it in the third so it was good to get the two points ultimately. We had, I think, a 2-on-1, (it went) back and forth. They had a breakaway. Three-on-3, crazy stuff is going to happen.”

The Avs, who have two more games before reaching the midpoint of the NHL season, had just 22 victories all of last season. They are just five points from matching last season’s 48-point total.

The Tampa Bay Lightning Keep On Rolling

from Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times,

Anton Stralman was yelling to goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy from across a music-filled Lightning dressing room Tuesday night, laughing about what he was feeling during the final highlight-reel stop of the night.

Stralman thought Leafs forward William Nylander had scored in the final minute, putting a rebound inside the left post. But a sprawling Vasilevskiy got a piece of it, preserving his second straight shutout, a 2-0 win over the Leafs at the Air Canada Centre. Vasilevskiy said the shot hit the post and bounced under his pad.

"It wasn’t actually a save," Vasilevskiy said. "It was luck, pure luck."

Vasilevskiy is quick to downplay his success and his scoreless streak — which has reached 164 minutes. He credits teammates for their play in front of him. But those in the Lightning room firmly believe Vasilevskiy is the best goalie in the world. And with a league-most 26 wins, six shutouts and a .937 save percentage, it’s hard to argue. Vasilevskiy is certainly the hottest, with three shutouts in his last four starts.

"He’s been our best player all year," wing Chris Kunitz said. "He might be quietly going about it, but not in this locker room. We know how hard he works. He keeps the composure of our team. When he’s unfazed, our team just goes out and keeps playing the same way."

Losing Streak Hits Five For The Montreal Canadiens After A 4-1 Loss To The San Jose Sharks

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

They lost because they didn’t compete hard enough.

Defenceman Jeff Petry said the team’s shortcomings were discussed in a players-only meeting after the loss.

“Guys in here, we had a little talk,” Petry said. “Obviously, we weren’t good enough tonight and we had to clear some things up.”

When asked what had to change, Petry said: “I think our compete level … definitely tonight wasn’t good enough. It just seems like we’re playing an easy game right now, making it easy on opponents. I don’t know if it’s just mental lapses from our structure or just wanting to do our own thing, but it’s definitely not working and it’s becoming more and more apparent.”

The Canadiens have scored only four goals in their five-game skid and Tuesday’s goal came on a 5-on-3 power play.

Another Loss For The Edmonton Oilers

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

Slaughtered 5-0 by the Winnipeg Jets, then bludgeoned to the same 5-0 tune by the Los Angeles Kings – in consecutive home games – the Edmonton Oilers season is swirling the bowl this morning....

Tuesday night a familiar flaw was first star at Rogers Place, as the Oilers’ historically horrid penalty killing unit allowed three goals in a five-minute major penalty, ensuring Edmonton’s fourth straight loss since the Christmas break.

With the score 1-0 for L.A. and just five seconds to play in the second period, Edmonton’s Pat Maroon was given a match penalty and ejected for a head shot on Kings defenceman Drew Doughty.

By the time Maroon left the box at 4:55 of the third period, the score was 4-0. Game over.
