NHL roundup: Blackhawks shut out Canadiens – Hockey – NorthJersey.com

The league’s department of player safety said Monday that Roussel must forfeit $5,376 — the maximum allowed under terms of the collective bargaining agreement — for hitting Braun in the face while he was restrained by linesmen with 1:09 left in the third period of Saturday night’s 5-3 victory over Dallas. Roussel was given a 10-minute misconduct penalty at the time. The scrum had developed after the Dallas player knocked San Jose goalie Alex Stalock to the ice as he tried to clear the puck out of the defensive zone. On Sunday, Braun said he was not concerned about any supplemental discipline that might be coming Roussel’s way. “You don’t want that to happen in the game, but whatever they decide to do, they decide to do,” Braun said before San Jose’s 5-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks. “We just have to go about our business.” Sharks Coach Todd McLellan did seem more troubled by the incident immediately after the Dallas game. “You know what disappoints me is when a guy is vulnerable and being held and he gets punched,” he said. “That’s the disappointing thing. I don’t think anybody in our league, the 750 players, the coaches, want to see that.

No salary cap increase for NHL next season? | Puck Daddy – Yahoo Sports

The Blackhawks recently agreed to eight-year contract extensions with for their star players. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh) Like the price of stamps, the NHLs salary cap ceiling seemed destined to grow forever higher. So what happens if it doesnt rise next season? Well, Larry Brooks of the NY Post reports that NHL GMs are preparing for that very thing, as the Canadian dollars decline impacts the cap. He said at least three contract extensions have been affected by the notion that next years cap might be stagnant. From the Post: Given the fixation of escrow under which the players currently are having 14 percent of their pay withheld, it certainly is a realistic possibility the NHLPA will not exercise a 5-percent escalator for 2015-16. That might mean a stagnant cap in the $69 million range, which falls some $5 million to $6 million shy of previous optimistic projections. That would mean that clubs facing a cap crunch now cannot responsibly count on relief for next season. That has put a hold on extension negotiations. Pretty wild, when you consider some estimates had the cap rising by $12 million (!) next season. The Chicago Blackhawks , Philadelphia Flyers and Tampa Bay Lightning would already feel the pinch of next years cap if it remains around $69 million. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/no-salary-cap-increase-for-nhl-next-season-154942492.html

Blackhawks unveil Winter Classic jersey | WGN Radio – 720 AM

Steven Stamkos scored twice heading into a matchup with a Chicago team he’s torched for nine goals and five assists in seven career games. The Lightning have won five straight over the Blackhawks (8-6-1), including a pair of overtime victories a season ago. Chicago hasn’t won consecutive games since Oct. 18-21, going 4-6-0 since. The inconsistency has come despite posting an NHL-low 1.87 goals against per game. Offensively, the Blackhawks have yet to score more than two goals in consecutive games. It’s not for a lack of opportunities as they’ve averaged a league-high 38.0 shots. They just often haven’t been quality chances considering their 6.8 percent shooting mark, which is among the worst in the NHL. Things have been looking up in their last three with a pair of victories and 12 goals scored after Sunday’s 5-2 home win over San Jose. Still, they allowed the Sharks to trim a three-goal lead to one early in the second period before rebounding in the third with two goals to put the game away. “You can see where the confidence in tight games and playing the right way and doing the right things is a work in progress right now,” coach Joel Quenneville told the team’s official website. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/lightning-blackhawks-preview-223808797–nhl.html
