WATCH LIVE: San Jose Sharks at Los Angeles Kings (Game 3)


Heading into Game 3, the Los Angeles Kings must not be feeling very confident, and with good reason. Still, there are positives:

1. Every game (expect that rescheduled one between the Blue Jackets and Stars) begins 0-0.

2. They fought back from a 2-0 deficit last year against a strong St. Louis Blues team.

3. The Minnesota Wild showed that a change of scenery can be a nice way to turn things around.

Stretching things a bit? Maybe, but a simple win would get them right back into this first-round series with the San Jose Sharks, who lead the series 2-0 as of this writing. The game airs on NBCSN and can be streamed via the link below.

Here are the 10 oldest players to play a game this season

This isn’t breaking news or anything. We just thought you’d like to know that three of the NHL’s 10 oldest players (who’ve played at least one game this season) are members of the Florida Panthers.

Oh, and the Panthers’ starting goalie? He’s the oldest starter in the league. (Scroll down.)

Here’s the list of skaters, topped by 43-year-old Jaromir Jagr:


Yet another veteran Panther, 36-year-old defenseman Brian Campbell, ranks 17th on the list.

Granted, the above list does not include 39-year-old Patrik Elias (who’s hurt) or 39-year-old Eric Boulton (who just re-signed with the Isles). As soon as those two play, Thornton will get pushed out of the top 10.

Now here’s the list of goalies who’ve started at least one game this season, topped by 36-year-old Roberto Luongo:


For the record, Luongo isn’t the oldest goalie under contract. That would be Minnesota’s Niklas Backstrom, who’s 37.

Hamburglar (groin) returns, Sens demote O’Connor

Andrew Hammond
Leave a comment

Matt O'Connor‘s time in the Canadian capital was brief, but still noteworthy.

O’Connor, the losing netminder in Sunday’s “Battle of the Backups” against Montreal — Habs No. 2 Mike Condon got the win — has been sent down to AHL Binghamton to pave the way for Andrew Hammond‘s return from a groin injury, per the Sun.

The Hamburglar has been out since the preseason, but his return is earlier than expected.

He was originally supposed to miss the first two weeks, yet now sounds as though he’ll play one of Ottawa’s two games on an upcoming road trip through Columbus and Pittsburgh.

It’s going to be interesting to see if Hammond can replicate the success he had last season, when he came out of nowhere to go 20-1-2 with a 1.79 GAA and .941 save percentage, and finish seventh in Vezina voting.
