Teemu Selanne is still playing solid hockey at 41 years of age. After all, hockey is a sport, that if you stay in shape, a player can play well into his late 40′s as Chris Chelios did recently.

Selanne scored on a power-play and had an assist as he moved into 20th place on the National Hockey League’s career scoring list with 1,395 points.

The Ducks won last night over the Chicago Blackhawks, 3-1.

Anaheim continues its playoff push by winning its ninth game in 12 games.

The Helsinki, Finland native has also played for Colorado, San Jose and Winnipeg since entering the NHL since 1988.

The U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame has selected its 2011 induction class.

The induction will take place this coming fall.

Also joining the induction class, Philadelphia Flyers founder and current owner Ed Snider along with play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick.

Chelios played a remarkable 26 NHL seasons with Montreal, Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta. He retired after 2009-10 season as the all-time leader in games played by a defenseman (1,651). He was also part of three Stanley Cup championships.

Tkachuk played nearly two decades and is one of just four American-born players to score 500 career NHL goals.

Suter spent most of his 17 seasons with Calgary and helped the Flames to a Stanley Cup in 1989.

Bruins bring back 42-year-old Recchi to help mentor 18-year-old Tyler Seguin

42-year-old Mark Recchi will be sticking around the Boston Bruins to be a part of their youth movement.

Recchi signed a one-year contract to return to Boston for his 22nd NHL season, making the league’s oldest active player under contract. If 48-year-old Chris Chelios, who can become an unrestricted free agent, doesn’t return to the NHL, Recchi would become the oldest player in the league. Chelios played with the Atlanta Thrashers last season, his 26th NHL season.

By playing another season in Boston, it gives Recchi a chance to play with 18-year-old prospect Tyler Seguin, the number 2 overall pick in last week’s NHL draft.

A seven-time All-Star, Recchi leads active players with 922 assists and is second with 563 goals. He is ninth in career NHL games played with 1,571, but if he plays a full season in 2010-2011, he’ll move up as high as fourth all-time.

The Bruins reached the Eastern Conference semifinals this past season, taking a 3-0 lead over Philadelphia before the Flyers tied the series and the came back from a three-goal deficit in game 7 to advance. Boston is just the third NHL team to lose a playoff series it led by three games.

Recchi garnered 18 goals and 25 assists last season plus a team-leading six goals along with four assists in 13 playoff games. He was picked up by Boston from the Tampa Bay Lightning in March 2009. He has also suited up with Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Montreal, Carolina and Atlanta.

Washington edges Blue Jackets 3-2 for 51st win

Columbus, Ohio–Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green summed up the truth following Saturday night’s game against the Blue Jackets. “We know we only played 40 minutes tonight when we need to play 60. It is wasn’t for Jose (Theodore), it would have been a lot different game.”

A team like Washington with a potent offense which is the best in the NHL, can get away with a game like that every now and then. However, their defense can be porous at times but with a shut-down goalie like Jose Theodore, the Capitals can play defense when they have to.

Goalie Jose Theodore (WASH)

Alexander Semin, Tomas Fleischmann and Mike Green scored first-period goals and that was enough for Jose Theodore as Washington beat Columbus 3-2 before 16,957 at Nationwide Arena.

Theodore had 34 saves and improved to 18-0-3 with a goals-against-average under 2.70 since January 13, extending his own Capitals record for decisions without a regulation loss.

Washington set a franchise record with its 51st win of the season. The win also moved them closer to clinching the President’s Trophy for the best NHL record. They only need one more win or a loss by San Jose to grab the trophy for the first time in its history and have home ice advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Capitals also continued to add to their franchise record for points in a season to 114 and set a new record for wins on the road, 23.

The Blue Jackets provided some excitement last night, just not enough to win. Antione Vermette scored two goals and Rick Nash added two assists.

The key play in the game for Columbus came early in the 3rd period and trailing 3-2, they had a 5-on-3 power play for 1:30 and a chance to tie and or go ahead and they couldn’t generate any shots.

* Columbus Right Wing Derek Dorsett played in his 100th NHL game.

* Scoring just one goal in his last six games, Alex Ovechkin remains stuck at 133 career goals at home and 133 on the road. He didn’t muster a shot in the first two periods and finished with two total.

* The Blue Jackets are now 4-5-3 all-time against Washington overall and 2-3-2 at Nationwide Arena.

* Nicklas Backstrom, who had 36 goals in his first two seasons combined, scored his 30th goal of the year Thursday night. Backstrom is the first Capitals center in 20 years to record 30 goals, since Mike Ridley (1989-90).

* Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin are the only players in the NHL with at least 30 goals and 50 assists.

* The Capitals are 9-1-1 in April in three seasons under head coach Bruce Boudreau.

* Washington owns the NHL”s best record at home, 28-5-5. The Capitals have hosted sellouts for all 38 home games and a club-record 45 games in a row dating back to last season (53 games including playoffs).

* The Caps have a chance to lead the league in power play percentage for the first time and their 25.6% success rate would break last year’s record of 25.2%.

* The Capitals have seven 20-point scorers, the most of any team in the league.

* Washington has four of the top 20 scorers in the league in Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green and Alexander Semin. Last year that group made the Capitals the first team since the 1995-96 Pittsburgh Penguins to have its top four scorers all average more than a point per game and they are on pace to repeat that feat.

* Alex Ovechkin hit the 100-point mark last Sunday, joining Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Peter Statsny and Dale Hawerchuk as the only players to do so four times in their first five NHL seasons. Ovechkin has four of the six 100-point seasons in Capitals history. Ovechkin is second in the NHL in points (102) and goals (46), while ranking first in plus/minus (+43), shots (348), points per game (1.52) and goals per game (0.69).

* Mike Green’s assist Thursday gave him 73 points, matching his career high first set last year. He has the most points by a defenseman in consecutive seasons (146) since a trio of Hall of Famers in 1992-93 and ’93-94 (Ray Bourque, Paul Coffey and Larry Murphy). His goal Tuesday night gave him his third straight year with at least 18 goals, a first for an NHL defenseman since Sergei Gonchar when he was a Capital from 2001-2003. The last non-Caps defenseman to do so was Ray Bourque (1992-94).

Green is enjoying his second straight 70-point season, making him just the 13th defenseman all-time to post 70 or more points in consecutive seasons (joining Bourque, Paul Coffey, Brian Leetch, Al MacInnis, Denis Potvin, Phil Housley, Bobby Orr, Larry Murphy, Nicklaus Lidstrom, Borje Salming, Gary Suter and Randy Carlyle. He’s the seventh to do so before turning 25th (the other six are in the Hall of Fame). Green, Lidstrom and Chris Chelios are the only active defensemen with a single 70-point season.
