Boston GM Peter Chiarelli expects to see a better Zdeno Chara when the playoffs begin.

Chiarelli didn't sound satisfied with the play of the Bruins captain when he spoke to the media on Monday. "For Z, he's obviously a very valuable player, one of the best, if not the best, defensemen in the league. Obviously you want him to be firing on all cylinders. So like the rest of them, he's got to get his game back," Chiarelli said. "With Z, it's about a strong defensive game, nothing fancy, big shots, a lot of straight lines. He is, obviously, important to the team, and what he does a lot of guys follow. He's got a lot of experience and we expect him to get his game where it has to be." Chara finished the regular season with two assists and a minus-3 rating in his last eight games. He'll be tasked with shutting down Toronto's Phil Kessel in the opening round of the playoffs and he's done a good job of that in regular-season play since Kessel was traded to the Leafs.

The Dallas Stars have traded Erik Cole to the Detroit Red Wings for prospects Mattias Backman, Mattas Janmark and a 2nd round pick in 2015.

The 36-year-old is in the final year of his contract. He has 18 goals and 33 points in 57 games with the Stars this season. He is a big body who will add some good depth on the wing for Detroit. Cole has 14 points in 46 career playoff games. He won the Stanley Cup with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2005-06.

Andrew Ladd scored two goals in Sunday's 5-2 win over Los Angeles.

Ladd had a very impressive stat line in this game. He had the two goals, a plus-2 rating, two penalty minutes, seven shots and two hits in 18:55 of ice time. Both of Ladd's goals were scored in the second period. The 29-year-old has 22 goals and 52 points in 64 games this season. Drew Stafford, Tyler Myers and Blake Wheeler also scored for the Jets.

The New York Rangers have acquired Keith Yandle, Chris Summers and a 4th round pick from the Arizona Coyotes for prospect Anthony Duclair, John Moore, a first round pick in 2016 and a 2nd round pick in 2015.

This is a blockbuster deal and a huge acquisition for the Rangers. Yandle, 28, is a highly-regarded offensive defenseman who has spent his entire career with the Coyotes to this point. He has four goals, 41 points and a minus-32 rating on a bad Arizona team. He is on pace to hit the 50-point mark for the third time in his career. The Coyotes are believed to be retaining 50 percent of Yandle's salary. He has one year remaining on his contract after this season.

Devan Dubnyk was named the NHL's first star for the month of February.

The 28-year-old registered a 1.64 goals-against-average, a .939 save percentage and three shutouts throughout the month.

Anders Lee has been named the NHL's rookie of the month for February.

Lee scored seven goals and 15 points in 15 games throughout the month. The 24-year-old was the Islanders' sixth round pick in 2009. Lee has 20 goals and 33 points in 58 games this season.

The Calgary Flames have placed Mark Giordano (upper body) on injured reserve.

This is a huge blow to Calgary's playoff chances as Giordano is having his best season as a pro. The 31-year-old has been a legitimate Norris trophy candidate this season. He has 11 goals, 48 points and a plus-13 rating while averaging over 25 minutes for the Flames.
Mar 1 - 2:03 PM

The Washington Capitals have acquired Curtis Glencross from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a second and third round pick in 2015.

Glencross had to waive his no-trade clause to go to Washington. The 32-year-old has nine goals and 28 points in 53 games for Calgary this season. His 0.53 point-per-game average this year is his lowest since the 2009-10 season (0.49). The Capitals have more offensive talent than Calgary so it wouldn't be shocking if Glencross produces a little more frequently down the stretch.

Antoine Vermette will not practice with the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.

The Blackhawks acquired Vermette from the Coyotes late Saturday night so he probably just needs some time to get everything settled in his new city. With Patrick Kane out for an extended period of time, Vermette should get ample opportunity to produce with his new team.
Mar 1 - 12:31 PM

Connor McDavid has 15 points including seven goals in his last four games and is on a 24 game scoring streak.

The consensus number one pick for the June draft has 102 points in only 39 games this season and is now fourth in the OHL in scoring despite playing at least 16 games less than anyone ahead of him. Mitch Marner of the London Knights leads the way with 118 points but McDavid is far and away the class of the league.

Brandon Dubinsky is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Dubinsky suffered the injury on Thursday but practiced some on Friday before leaving the ice. "The doctors examined him in the first period," coach Todd Richards said. "There was some neck and shoulder soreness. After the evaluation, just as a precaution, we kept him out of the game. He came in the next morning and felt great. He went out on the ice and started developing symptoms. We got him off right away, and he was re-examined by our doctors. It was ruled a concussion." With only six weeks left in the season, it could be time to cut bait with Dubinsky in one-year pools.

Devan Dubnyk stood tall in net for Minnesota, making 33 saves in a 3-1 win over the Avalanche on Saturday night.

We’re running out of superlatives to attach to Dubnyk’s performance since he’s been traded to Minnesota. He has a 15-3-1 record and a 1.64 goals-against and .937 save percentage with the Wild. For those who took a chance on him, he’s been a fantasy difference maker as well.
