While the NHL was battling through the first 30 games of its schedule, both Scott Niedermayer and Ty Conklin were mostly sitting around.
Niedermayer was trying to figure out whether at age 34 he’d had enough of pro hockey and needed to look elsewhere for new challenges.
Conklin, meanwhile, was the third-string goalie of the Pittsburgh Penguins, probably wondering whether at age 31 he was ever going to get a serious NHL chance again.
Yet, here we are now in mid-January, and the impact these two players have had on this season in the past month is remarkable.
