Tuukka Rask would like to stay in Boston for the rest of his career and his new contract could reflect that.

"That would be an ideal situation, I think to play here forever," Rask said. "I hope we can make that happen." The Bruins goaltender felt he had a "great year" while proving himself as a viable No. 1 after the departure of Tim Thomas. Rask played very well in the regular season and he flourished in the playoffs. GM Peter Chiarelli would like to get a deal as quickly as he can.

Kris Letang is dealing with an upper-body injury.

The Penguins didn't offer any further details other than to say that Letang is day-to-day. Unfortunately injury troubles are nothing new for Letang and this season has been no exception as he's been limited to 41 games so far. The Penguins are also missing blueliners Justin Schultz, Trevor Daley, and Olli Maatta though, so the timing of Letang's injury is particularly brutal. The silver lining is that the Penguins acquired Ron Hainsey, so at least they have a much needed reinforcement.

The Carolina Hurricanes have waived Bryan Bickell.

Bickell hasn't played since Oct. 30 as he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He resumed practicing a month ago and if he clears waivers, he'll be sent to the AHL so that he can get back into the swing of things.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired Ron Hainsey from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a 2017 second-round selection and Danny Kristo.

The Hurricanes will retain half of Hainsey's remaining $2,833,333 annual cap hit. Hainsey is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He has four goals and 14 points in 56 contests this season and has averaged 22:20 minutes per contest. He'll be a big help to the Penguins given that they're missing defensemen Justin Schultz, Trevor Daley, and Olli Maatta due to injuries.

Trevor Daley has undergone knee surgery and will miss six weeks as a result.

Daley was hurt during Tuesday's game. He has five goals and 19 points in 54 games this season. The Penguins' defense was already depleted due to the loss of Justin Schultz and Olli Maatta. With that in mind, the Penguins also acquired blueliner Ron Hainsey from Carolina.

Rickard Rakell scored two goals for the Ducks in Wednesday night’s 5-3 win over the Bruins.

The Duck and Bruins were swapping goals most of the night and with the game tied 3-3 and less than three minutes remaining, Rakell fired one past Tuukka Rask for the game winner. This snapped a five-game streak in which Rakell failed to score a single point. The last time he was on the board was February 9 against the Sabres with one goal and one assist.

Matt Niskanen exited Wednesday's game against Philadelphia because of a lower-body injury.

Niskanen appeared to hurt his leg/knee after Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas collided with him. Niskanen played just over 10 minutes before leaving the game. He was never able to come back. We'll consider him day-to-day for now. You can watch the play by clicking the link below.

Braden Holtby stopped 33 of 34 shots in Washington's 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Only Brayden Schenn was able to beat Holtby tonight. The Capitals goaltender is an incredible 15-0-1 in his last 16 decisions. The victory over the Flyers also allowed him to become the fourth goalie in the league to hit the 30-win mark. Holtby will enter his next start with a stellar 1.99 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage. He has to be considered the top fantasy player at his position.
Feb 22 - 11:14 PM

Evgeni Kuznetsov scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Kuznetsov extended Washington's lead to 2-0 late in the first period and his second marker of the evening made it 3-1 for his team in the second frame. He finished the game with four shots on goal and one hit in 15:12 of ice time. Kuznetsov has 14 goals and 47 points in 59 games in 2016-17. The Capitals forward has also racked up 12 points in his last 11 contests. Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie also scored for the Caps.

John Gibson is out Wednesday night with a lower-body injury.

He got the morning off and now we know why. He is considered day-to-day. Jonathan Bernier is between the pipes for the Ducks against Boston and Jhonas Enroth is backing him up.
Feb 22 - 10:48 PM

Kris Russell scored his first goal of the season in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers.

Russell picked the perfect time to score his first goal of the season, as he was able to break the 3-3 tie with less than eight minutes remaining in regulation. He finished the game with one shot on goal and a plus-2 rating in 19:55 of ice time. Russell has seven points in 49 games this season. Oscar Klefbom, Zack Kassian and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins also scored for Edmonton.
