MONTREAL (AP) — Montreal Canadiens forward Phillip Danault was released from a hospital Sunday after tests for a head injury.

Danault was hit in the head by Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara’s slap shot Saturday night and taken off the ice on a stretcher.

“Phillip Danault was released from the hospital earlier today and is now resting at home,” the Canadiens said Sunday on Twitter.

The rising shot in the second period looked to hit Danault on the side of the head. He was down on the ice for several minutes but was moving and appeared to be speaking to medical staff before leaving the ice to an ovation from the Bell Centre crowd.

“It’s stuff that happens in hockey and it’s scary,” defenseman Jordie Benn said after practice Sunday. “But Phil’s doing well.”

It wasn’t immediately clear when Danault might return to the lineup.

“We’ve just got to wait and hopefully he can get healthy pretty quick,” Benn said.

The 24-year-old Danault, from Victoriaville, has seven goals and 15 assists in 43 games this season.

Officials opted to play the final 1:37 of the second after intermission.

Marchand also scored in regulation, helping the Bruins improve to 9-0-3 in their last 12 games. Jake DeBrusk and David Krejci had the other goals for Boston, and Tuukka Rask made 27 saves.

“It’s different, but this was just another game,” said Marchand, who also scored in regulation. “We did a good job and look forward to the next one.”

Alex Galchenyuk, Max Pacioretty and Nicolas Deslauriers scored for Montreal, and Carey Price had 29 stops. It was Galchenyuk’s 100th career goal.

Claude Julien coached against Boston for the first time since he was fired by the Bruins last February and hired by the Canadiens a week later.

Montreal jumped in front 3:22 into the first when Pacioretty scored for the third straight game. Victor Mete, playing his first game back after helping Canada win world junior championship gold, picked up an assist when the rebound of his point shot was tucked inside the post by the captain of the Canadiens.

Marchand responded with a power-play goal at 17:11. He was left alone in front to take a feed from Patrice Bergeron and score his 18th of the season.

DeBrusk was sent in alone by Charlie McAvoy to beat Price with a high shot 2:55 into the second. Deslauriers picked up a loose puck at the Boston blue line and beat Rask with a low shot from the slot at 5:45.

Galchenyuk put the Canadiens in front again with a power-play wrist shot under the crossbar at 8:51. It was his 11th goal of the season.

But the Bruins tied it again with 2:18 left in the second. Jakub Jerabek swiped at and missed a bouncing puck and Krejci pounced on it and beat Price from close range.

Cheap New York Islanders Jersey Wholesale From China

It’s been an under the radar story for the New York Islanders. The reason being the Isles have to wait for this prized investment. Make no mistake though, the Isles top 2018 draft picks are golden tickets.

In the New York Islanders front office, you might hear the staff singing “I have a golden ticket” from the classic Gene Wilder movie, Willy Wonka. The Islander fans should be singing as well with the franchise having these upcoming picks.
The Draft Picks

The Islanders have two, first-round, as well as, two, second-round selections in the upcoming 2018 NHL Draft. This June’s draft has been described with a lot of superlatives and has been compared to the talent-rich draft class of 2015.

The Isles have their own draft picks in rounds one and two, as well as Calgary’s thanks to the Travis Hamonic trade. These four future players have a chance to give this talented organization incredible impact over the next decade.

Could the Isles land another player on the level of Mathew Barzal?
Root Against Calgary

Clearly, the Isles don’t want to see their own draft pick selection turn into a top pick in the upcoming June draft for obvious reasons. Calgary however, is another matter.

The Flames are a good team, but like the East, the Western Conference is very deep and the playoffs are no guarantee for Calgary.

Nothing against Calgary but the number one team the Islander fans should be rooting against on a nightly basis isn’t the New York Rangers but the Calgary Flames. Sorry Calgary, but business is business.

If Calgary misses the playoffs could the ping-pong balls bounce favorably for the Isles as they did for the Flyers last year?
Major Trade Asset

These four upcoming draft picks are major assets that the Islander organization possesses. They are extremely coveted by other NHL clubs.

In any future trade talks no doubt the opposing general managers will try and pry away one of these picks from Garth Snow. The thought of adding these future prospects to a really good prospect pipeline is very enticing.

Snow could use one of these picks as a trade chip anytime between now and the trade deadline.

Another possibility is Snow holds on to these picks and use them once the 2017-18 season is over. June is the unofficial trading month in today’s salary cap NHL.

Not likely a star player will be available via trade between now and the trade deadline. June however, could be an entirely different matter.

Philadelphia Flyers

Philadelphia Flyers

Sean Couturier is off to a flat-out ridiculous start, but there’s more to it than that as he settles in as the Flyers’ No. 1 center.

Just 24-years-old, the former QMJHL star with the Drummondville Voltigeurs is now in his sixth NHL season and enjoying a breakout performance on the ice—offensively that is.

Since breaking the Flyers’ opening night roster way back in 2011 as a 19-year-old, Couturier has been a rock defensively for the club as evidence by his career 40.9% offensive zone start percentage. He’s finished in the top 10 in Selke Trophy voting—given annually to the forward who demonstrates the most still in the defensive component of the game—twice since entering the league (2013-14, 2015-16).

But though he spent the better part of his first five seasons as a shutdown center for the Flyers, it wasn’t just because Couturier excelled in his own end instinctively, it was also because the Flyers had a glut of centers in the organization that clouded things.

In his rookie year of 2011-12, there was Claude Giroux, Daniel Briere, Maxime Talbot, Brayden Schenn and Couturier all vying for center ice time. Though everyone save for Giroux could split some action on the wing, it wasn’t like the rookie from the QMJHL was going to get top-six minutes and ample offensive opportunities. He finished the year with 27 points (13G, 14A) while starting 60% of his shifts in the defensive zone.

After two years and middling success with young guys like Schenn and Couturier spending time at center, the Flyers went out and signed Vincent Lecavalier to a large deal in free agency to be their No. 2 center behind Giroux, or so they hoped. Instead, the former Tampa Bay star flamed out, scoring just 58 points in 133 games in a Flyers uniform in parts of two seasons.

Perhaps the bigger issue with the failed Lecavalier era was that the veteran stole potentially valuable ice time away from guys like Schenn, Couturier and then Scott Laughton in all situations. The experiment failed and could have delayed the development of those young centers as offensive opportunity went to the veteran over the youngsters.

It’s no surprise that the following year sans Lecavalier showed the beginning of the rise of Couturier.

In 2015-16, Couturier saw his offensive zone starts climb from to 43.4% from 40.1% and post a career-high with a 52.4% Corsi For (about 4% better than his career rate to that point). His possession numbers weren’t a fluke, either, as evidence by his 2.1% Corsi For relative to his teammates. He tied his career-high with 39 points (11G, 28A) and was a plus player for the fourth time in five years.

But with 34 points (14G, 20A) it didn’t turn out that way, not at least in terms of putting up the production of the legitimate #2 center that the Flyers desperately needed.

While he didn’t break the 40-point barrier and venture into that top-six caliber center stage in terms of points last season, Couturier posted a career-high 54.5% Corsi For and nearly doubled his Corsi For% relative. Though the goals and assists weren’t there, the corner was already turned. He just needed more opportunity.

With depth down the middle thanks to No. 2 overall pick Nolan Patrick, Scott Laughton’s strong AHL play a year ago, and the acquisition of veteran Valtteri Filppula, the Flyers suddenly had another glut of centers heading into this season.

That’s when an experiment in camp saw Claude Giroux moved to the wing of…you guessed it: Sean Couturier. Jake Voracek would occupy the other wing to form the Flyers’ new-look top line. Though there were some growing pains in the preseason (Looking at you, G) the trio was dangerous offensively from the get-go and the experiment moved from infancy stages to full-blown reality.

Though 15 games the line has amassed 53 points (20G, 33A) to form one of the NHL’s top scoring lines. Couturier has been the beneficiary of playing with top skilled passers, notching nine goals already, just six away from his career-high of 15. That’s a cool 49-goal pace if you’re scoring at home. He’s also up to a career-best 45.7% offensive zone start percentage and a 53% Corsi For percentage.

Sure his shooting percentage (19.6%) will likely come down, but he’s getting the best chances he’s ever had in his young career playing with a pair of all-stars, and at the end of the day one of them has to shoot the puck right?

Sean Couturier is having a career-year offensively for the Flyers—and while its taken six years—the potential was always there and it’s all happening now right in front of our eyes.

Cheap Buffalo Sabres Jersey Free Shipping From China.

Evander Kane

Evander Kane

A 1-2-1 road trip, a 1-4-2 season record. The bottom lines for the Buffalo Sabres aren’t pretty at this point.

The team’s uneven jaunt to the West Coast ended late Tuesday night with a 5-4 overtime loss to the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, a game that saw the Sabres wipe out a 4-1 deficit in the final 10 minutes of regulation.

It was a mostly disappointing performance that left coach Phil Housley stewing. And it was even more of a surprise, given how the team’s play had gotten appreciably better on the trip’s first three stops, culminating with Sunday’s 3-1 win in Anaheim.

“We had a chance to build on something and I know this is a process but the process was a little broken tonight,” Housley said after the contest in T-Mobile Arena. “The lack of preparation, accountability and urgency to start the game the way we finished was lacking.”

The Sabres took Wednesday off and will return to practice Thursday in HarborCenter. They host Vancouver Friday in KeyBank Center, with no real idea which version of their team will show up.

It’s the conundrum of the early portions of the Sabres’ season. They skated well and had 45 shots on goal in their season-opening shootout loss to Montreal. Then they got pounded by the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils, giving up six goals in back-to-back games.

Out West, some elements of the Sabres’ game fell apart from time to time. Defensemen struggled. The penalty kill went 0 for 3 in Los Angeles, including the game-winning goal that came with two minutes left. But General Manager Jason Botterill liked some of the perseverance he saw as well.

“Our compete level and response to getting on the road was very good,” Botterill told The News prior to Tuesday’s game. “We had opportunities in San Jose and LA to win games but didn’t get the results. Our play was going in a positive direction even though it was a difficult loss on Saturday in LA.

“The fact that Phil and the players were able to rebound and stay focused for the game on Sunday showed some mental toughness in the group and we were certainly happy to get that win.”

The Sabres found more of that toughness in Vegas, getting two of their three power-play goals to spark the comeback and finally tying the game on Evander Kane’s goal with 8.9 seconds left in regulation.

“We can’t take periods off and shifts off,” Kane said afterward. “We just played the way we need to play. Unfortunately it took until the third period to get in the right mindset as a group.

“Put pucks on net, to forecheck with five, to get our ‘D’ to get aggressive. We basically played in the zone the entire period, when we were moving our feet and not being slow like we were in the second.”

The Sabres outshot Vegas, 17-6, in the third period. Kane finished with a three-point night to push his season total to 10, which entered Wednesday two off the league-leading total of 12 shared by Tampa Bay teammates Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov.

“Phil has spent a lot of time trying to develop relationships with Evander and some of the core players and that’s been paying off,” Botterill said. “From day one of training camp, Evander has been great. You’re seeing what he’s capable of in all aspects of the game. He’s been doing everything the coaching staff has asked him.”

Well, maybe not everything. Kane had a run of penalties in Los Angeles and Anaheim that included his offensive zone trip with 2:04 left that led to the Kings’ game-winning goal four seconds later.

The Sabres’ solid victory over the Ducks made them the second-last team in the league to get a win this year and Botterill said he felt the team needed to see some rewards with its play.

“You’re excited for Phil and the players,” he said. “Phil has talked to them about things that need to improve and you want them to be rewarded for their response. Frankly, it was a relief to people within the organization. The fact that they’re listening to Phil is really good. There’s a buy-in but you have to get the results.”

Botterill is still in observation mode with his team, even as it lingers in the bottom three clubs of the NHL’s overall standing. Zach Bogosian has yet to play in a game this season and his injury has hampered the defense. Jacob Josefson and Zemgus Girgensons were lost in the last two games on the road for undetermined periods, leading to the recall of Justin Bailey, who scored the first goal in Anaheim.

Botterill has taken a conservative approach with the Sabres’ roster, keeping Bailey in Rochester to start the season along with fellow prospects like Nick Baptiste and Brendan Guhle. None of them showed much at training camp, other than the need for more AHL seasoning, but it could have been tempting to simply keep them in the NHL over the likes of Josefson, Seth Griffith or Matt Tennyson.

“You’re not just hoping they play in the National Hockey League. You’re hoping they play a bigger role,” Botterill said. “To me, there’s such a focus on making a team opening night. We put too much of an emphasis on that in this sport right now. You look back at the end of the year and I want to see your total contribution to Buffalo over the season.

“I give a guy like Justin Bailey credit. He went down and gave our team a spark the first night there with two goals. The challenge is to maintain that intensity and level of play.”

The same can be said for the entire team.
