The Buffalo Sabres received Jamie McBain and the Carolina Hurricanes' second-round pick for Andrej Sekera.

McBain is a little bit younger (25 vs. 27) and probably has a better offensive upside with recent 27 and 32-point seasons. He also has a slight size advantage. Still, McBain's eight-point season in 2013 might be a cause for concern.

David Backes scored a goal in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over Carolina.

The 30-year-old forward has now extended his point-streak to nine games and he has collected at least a point in 11 of his last 12 games. Backes' first period goal gave the Blues a 2-0 lead in the game, but the Hurricanes were able to tie it up and force a shootout. Backes has 17 goals and 35 points in 47 games this season. Ryan Reaves also scored in regulation for the Blues, while Kevin Shattenkirk scored the shootout winner.

Cory Schneider made 41 saves in New Jersey's 2-1 overtime loss to Pittsburgh.

Schneider is the only reason the Devils were able to collect a point tonight. Pittsburgh outshot New Jersey 43-14, but it was Devils' forward Steve Bernier who opened the scoring in the third period. Schneider came up with several big saves throughout the game, but Chris Kunitz eventually beat him with a power play goal late in the third period. The 28-year-old goaltender was also beat by Pittsburgh's third shot in overtime. Schneider has just one regulation loss in his last seven games (5-1-1). He has a 17-19-5 record with a 2.36 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage.

Simon Despres scored the overtime-winner in Pittsburgh's 2-1 win over New Jersey on Friday night.

Devils' goaltender Cory Schneider shut the door on the Penguins for most of the night, but Chris Kunitz was able to beat him with under four minutes remaining to tie the game at 1-1. The goal was Despres' first since November 6th, and just his second of the year. The 23-year-old has 13 points in 46 games this season. Kris Letang assisted on both of Pittsburgh's goals in the game.

Christian Ehrhoff has returned to Pittsburgh to be tested for a possible concussion.

Ehrhoff will obviously miss Friday's game in New Jersey. Look for Scott Harrington to dress as a result. Ehrhoff has three goals and 13 points in 43 games in 2014-15.

Ryan Murray (knee) has been activated off of the injured reserve list.

Murray should make his return on Saturday. He's only played in four games this season and his last contest was on Nov. 1. With that in mind, we recommend tempering your short-term expectations for Murray. Columbus assigned Josh Anderson to the minor to free up a roster spot. Murray's return might also push Dalton Prout out of the lineup.

Craig Anderson (hand) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

The severity of Anderson's injury isn't clear yet. Ottawa's upcoming games are spread out, so while he's gone, Robin Lehner might get all of the Senators' starts.
Jan 30 - 12:20 PM

Jori Lehtera is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Lehtera was hurt during Thursday's contest and won't play on Friday as a result. He has nine goals and 30 points in 46 games in 2014-15. Paul Stastny might end up taking Lehtera's spot on a line with Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz.

Kyle Clifford was bumped up to the Kings' top line during Thursday's practice.

Marian Gaborik was moved to the third line as a result. It's hard to see Gaborik being kept off the top-six for long, so Clifford's position is likely temporary. Still, it makes Clifford a player worth keeping an eye on when Los Angeles faces Boston on Saturday.

Cedric Paquette lit the lamp three times for the Bolts on Thursday night as Tampa Bay hammered Detroit 5-1.

The 21-year-old rookie's first career hat trick was completed in dramatic fashion, as the forward tipped a puck at the blueline on the penalty kill to intercept a pass, took the puck to the net on an odd-man rush and fired home the shorthanded goal for his ninth of the season. Paquette has a hot stick with five points in his last three games and 15 through 40 games this season.

Jason Spezza went pointless in his return to Ottawa on Thursday, but the Stars were able to beat the Senators 6-3.

The performance snapped a six-game points streak for the veteran center, but the longtime Senator probably had other things on his mind as he was given a warm welcome returning to the city that drafted him. The Canadian Tire Centre crowd applauded their former captain after a video tribute during a commercial break. Spezza has 35 points in 48 games with the Stars.
Jan 30 - 12:50 AM

Carey Price made 24 saves on Thursday night, and the Habs needed each and every one of them, as Montreal squeaked by New York 1-0.

Price has won four straight games and has not allowed more than two goals in his past five games for the Canadiens. Of course, we're not including his performance for Team Foligno in Sunday's All Star Game. Price improves to 26-10-2 this year with a .931 save percentage and 2.09 goals against average.
