Pens and Blues combine for another trade, flip Bortuzzo for Cole

10 Comments

The Blues and Pens have combined for another deal.

Just one month after the Marcel Goc-for-Maxim Lapierre trade, the Pens sent Roberto Bortuzzo to St. Louis in exchange for Ian Cole. The Blues also get a seventh-round pick at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Bortuzzo, 25, has appeared in 38 games this year, averaging 15:28 TOI while scoring six points. His most noteworthy moment came in early December, when he was suspended a pair of games for a hit on then-Devils forward Jaromir Jagr.

Cole, 26, is a former first-round pick (18th overall, 2007) that’s had his finest NHL season to date this year, posting career-highs in games (54) and goals (five). He’s been in and out of the St. Louis lineup lately, though, dealing with an upper-body injury while occasionally serving as a healthy scratch.

Monetarily, this deal is a wash. Cole is a pending RFA in the last of a two-year, $1.65 million deal with an $825,000 cap hit, while Bortuzzo is also a pending RFA with a $600,000 hit.

Video: Panthers’ Jagr ties Phil Esposito with his 717th career goal

9 Comments

Jaromir Jagr opened the scoring for the Florida Panthers midway through the first period against the Tampa Bay Lightning this evening.

The goal was his first as a member of the Panthers and the 717th of his career tying him with Phil Esposito for fifth all-time.

Jagr is now 14 goals back of Marcel Dionne for fourth spot on the list.

Jagr earns high praise in his Panthers debut

1 Comment

Jaromir Jagr’s first game with the Florida Panthers on Saturday was not statistically noteworthy. Although his team earned a 5-3 victory over Buffalo, Jagr recorded no points, had three shots on goal, and a minus-one rating in 17:09 minutes of ice time. His new team couldn’t be happier with the player they got though.

“He was outstanding,” coach Gerard Gallant told the Miami Herald. “He makes your team a lot better, gives your team a a lot of confidence.”

Jagr was credited with playing a leadership role too. While he was on the ice, 23-year-old forward Brandon Pirri scored back-to-back power-play goals just 1:21 minutes apart.

“He told me to shoot the puck, said ‘you got it’,” Pirri said. “I knew I had to be the shooter there, [Brian Campbell] put it in my wheelhouse and I teed off on it.”

Pirri now has 11 goals in 29 contests this season.

“At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things, but I just cannot do it anymore. So it’s just a lot easier to tell them what to do, because they still got the legs and hands to do it,” Jagr said about his new role on the young team, per the Panthers’ website.

The New Jersey Devils traded Jagr to Florida in exchange for a 2015 second-round pick and conditional 2016 third rounder on Thursday.

This was an important two points for the Panthers, but their work is far from done. They’re still four points behind Boston in the Wild Card race as the Bruins also won today.

Time to start winning — Bruins’ next four games are against non-playoff teams

17 Comments

The Boston Bruins will take this season’s frustrations to a whole new level if they don’t take advantage of a four-game stretch against teams currently not in a playoff position.

That stretch starts tonight in New Jersey. The B’s then return home for games against Arizona, Calgary, and Philadelphia.

Given the Devils and Flyers still feel they can catch the Bruins for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, those two contests in particular take on even more importance.

The B’s are coming off a 2-1 home loss to Vancouver in which they arguably deserved better. Boston finished with 41 shots to the Canucks’ 28, and Vancouver goalie Eddie Lack was named first star for good reason.

“I think that the only thing we talk about here is pretty simple: It’s not the offense; it’s the lack of finish,” coach Claude Julien said.

In fact, based on puck-possession metrics, the Bruins have actually been playing extremely well lately. In their last five games — only one of which they won (6-2 in Chicago) — they’ve had the best score-adjusted Fenwick in the NHL. Hence, GM Peter Chiarelli’s assertion prior to the Vancouver game that he was seeing some “promising signs” from his team.

Obviously, those “promising signs” have to start translating into wins — especially with the Florida Panthers (now featuring Jaromir Jagr!) just two points back and hosting last-place Buffalo Saturday.
