Edmonton’s goaltending has turned around, a sudden reversal of fortune for Kuemper, a productive Matt Cooke and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. Jerryd Bayless Jersey . HEROES Ben Scrivens – 29-save shutout against Montreal. After a miserable start to the season, during which he stopped 80% of the shots he faced in his first three appearances, Scrivens has recovered nicely, with a .945 save percentage in the past five games, the last four of which are Oilers wins. Mats Zuccarello – Scored a goal and two assists, and had the best possession stats (16 shot attempts for, 8 against) for the Rangers in their 5-4 win over Minnesota. Derick Brassard – Also had a goal and two assists, to ignite the Rangers’ third-period comeback. With Derek Stepan injured, the Rangers needed Brassard to step up and he has, with four goals and seven points, with strong possession (55.3% of even-strength shot attempts) in nine games, playing a career-high 17:29 per game for the Blueshirts. ZEROES Darcy Kuemper – Through his first five starts of the season, the Wild goaltender had allowed a toal of four goals against and, after two shutout periods against the Rangers, it was looking like more of the same was in store, but then Kuemper surrendered five goals on 12 shots in the third period as Minnesota coughed up a 3-0 lead to eventually lose 5-4. Questionable Rangers Hits – Both Rangers LW Chris Kreider and D John Moore were ejected from the game for delivering questionable hits. Kreider caught Wild D Jonas Brodin with a shove from behind approaching the end boards behind the Wild net and Moore laid out Wild C Erik Haula with a high and late hit after Haula had directed a shot towards the Rangers net. Kreider appears to be off the hook, while Moore is facing a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety. SHORT SHIFTS With a goal and an assist against the Rangers, Wild LW Matt Cooke now has five points in seven games, while playing only 10:58 per game. According to Puckalytics, Among players to play at least 50 minutes at 5-on-5, Cooke ranks 13th in points/60 minutes with 4.07…The player who ranks first, Rick Nash, had a goal and an assist for the Rangers, giving him nine goals in nine games (and 6.22 PTS/60) this season…Canadiens RW Brendan Gallagher generated 10 shot attempts ( 4 SOG) and had an impressive possession game (20 shot attempts for, 7 against, 74.1%)…Montreal’s top possession player was D Nathan Beaulieu (15 for, 5 against, 75.0%)…Wild RW Jason Pominville had 10 shot attempts (5 SOG)…Edmonton’s line of Boyd Gordon, Matt Hendricks and Jesse Joensuu started every one of their shifts in the defensive zone. In Gordon’s case, that was 11 defensive zone starts, with none in the offensive and neutral zones. They also spent most of their night remaining in the defensive zone, as all three had fewer than 15% of the shot attempts when they were on the ice at even strength LINEUP NEED TO KNOW With Nikita Nikitin out, Brad Hunt was inserted into the Oilers’ lineup. Hunt played 18:26, though had some possession problems (6 shot attempts for, 13 against, 31.6%) against Montreal. Once Moore was ejected, Rangers D Kevin Klein played a season-high 23:19, putting up a goal and an assist. FANTASY FOCUS It’s a busy night on the ice, with a dozen games. Here are a handful of players that you may want to consider for your roster: Dennis Wideman – The Flames’ defenceman has scored goals in four straight games and has played more than 23 minutes in three of the past four games. Damien Brunner – Scratched early in the season, the Devils’ winger has three points in his last three games and has played more than 17 minutes in three of his four games since he was inserted into the lineup. With Martin Havlat and Mike Cammalleri out, there is room for Brunner to play in a scoring role with New Jersey. Nikita Kucherov – As injuries pile up among Tampa Bay’s forwards, Kucherov is taking advantage of an increased role, with four points in the past two games, the first two games this season in which Kucherov has played at least 14 minutes. Dany Heatley – The veteran power forward is expected to make his Ducks debut tonight in Chicago, in the plum spot on left wing with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Nick Bonino – There were questions about whether Bonino would be able to handle the second-line centre role in Vancouver, but he’s off to a fine start, with seven points in eight games and all of his points have come at even strength, another positive considering that he scored 20 power play points of his career-high 49 total points last season.

"I had a pretty good year," the soft-spoken Granberg told TSN.ca with a grin from the teams annual rookie tournament in London. A fourth-round selection in 2010, Granberg is worth keeping an eye on with NHL training camps rolling around in less than a week. The six-foot-two, 200-pound defender may not possess the wow-inspiring theatrics of fellow prospect Morgan Rielly, but nonetheless has a chance to contribute with the Leafs when all is said and done this season. JJ Redick Jersey . Raonic, the mens No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., needed more than three hours to overcome Frenchman Gilles Simon 4-6, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 and become the first Canadian man into the fourth round at Roland Garros. http://www.authentic76ersauthority.com/wilt-chamberlain-76ers-jersey-c-14/ . TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie tweeted Monday morning that Callahan - who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, is now open to a six-year contract at less than $7 million per season.CHARLOTTE, N.C. - While driving Dale Earnhardts legendary black No. 3 Chevrolet last season was the experience of a lifetime for Austin Dillon, nothing crazy happened in his rookie season.He wants that to change in 2015.We have to start getting crazier, Dillon said Thursday at NASCARs annual media tour event. We have to make things happen. We need to be in the Chase. We need to be a part of the chaos at the end of the year.Dillon had just one top-five and four top-10 finishes in his first season at the Sprint Cup level driving one of NASCARs most recognizable cars.That lack of production kept him out of the Chases new playoff-style format implemented in 2014.That is what this year is about — stepping out and going after it, more so than (last) year, Dillon said. I think people know how we approached last year — and we did it right — but now its time to make fire.The 24-year-old Dillon went about getting a jump start on his goal of making the Chase when he had a sit-down meeting with crew chief Gil Martin after last season.The goal was to create a blueprint for success.Ultimately, Dillon said they discussed his need to come to the track better prepared on race weekend.I know it takes more than what I gave it last year, Dillon said. The good thing is we had a decent year last year and when you know what those are, you should be able to take those and make them better.The seecond season in the same automobile seems to work for him. Charles Barkley Jersey. Dillon won the Camping World Truck Series championship in 2011, his second full season racing trucks. He moved up the then-Nationwide Series the following year and won the championship a year later in 2013.It would be a long-shot for him to do the same at the Sprint Cup level, given the inherent pressure and competition.Dillon admits that racing the Intimidators black No. 3 Chevy involved a lot of pressure that came with high expectations. But hes not about to back down.I want to put more pressure on myself, Dillon said.Dillon said one of the goals this year to be stronger — and more aggressive — on restarts.We have to push ourselves more and make things happen, Dillon said.Dillons talent is indisputable.Hes won Rookie of the Year awards at the K&N Series East, the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series.But hes come to realize it will take more than just reputation to win at the Sprint Cup level.You cant rely on talent, because everyone at that level has talent, Dillon said. Some people can rely on talent and that is unbelievable. But it is going to take more for me to get prepared better and be ready when I get to the track to make it happen.The Chase is his goal, he said.Its amazing, Dillon said. I enjoyed it and I want to be a part it. Its really going to push us this year.
