Saturday Afternoon Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- Since January 1, Brad Marchand has scored 52 points. Connor McDavid has 58. Boston is battling for the top of the Eastern Conference. Edmonton is nowhere near the playoffs. Hard not to have Marchand somewhere on your five-man Hart Trophy ballot, with all his warts, ahead of McDavid.

- U.S. Olympic team member Ryan Donato has three goals since joining the Boston Bruins. Henrik Sedin has three goals in 77 games with the Vancouver Canucks.

- Rumblings are if the Calgary Flames part ways with team president, Brian Burke, which is possible, there’s a job at USA Hockey likely waiting for Burke.

Staying Away From The Boards

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe,

Just imagine: Hockey players taking the ice with magnets embedded in their equipment.

It is the stuff of dreams. The theory, according to a cohort of engineering students at Carnegie Mellon University, is that with magnets also fitted into the boards, the similarly magnetized players would be repelled when they approached the walls and avoid injury-causing impacts.

“Think of two magnets being pushed together,” explained Diana Haidar, assistant teaching professor in mechanical engineering at Carnegie Mellon. “It’s the same polarity. They bounce off each other. So if you’re going to slam into a hard wall, when you approach, you bounce off because of the natural force.”

Big Game Win For The Anaheim Ducks

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

In the biggest game to date for both the Kings and Ducks in their respective grinding, challenging seasons, Rickard Rakell became Mr. Big Shot.

To cap a taut, thrilling Freeway Faceoff that was the most meaningful one played between Southern California’s two hockey teams since the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs, Rakell lifted the Ducks to a dramatic 2-1 victory over the Kings on Friday night at Honda Center.

Trapped in a bit of a slump over the last nine games, Rakell got the puck from Brandon Montour in overtime and drove up the ice. Measuring Kings defenseman Alec Martinez, the Ducks’ goal-scoring star took a rising shot that soared past Kings goalie Jonathan Quick toward the top left corner of the net with 19 seconds left.

It was Rakell’s team-leading 32nd and this one carried more importance than any other. His plan was to build up speed and see what the defense was going to give him.
