The Columbus Blue Jackets continued to win on the road, beating the struggling New York Islanders, 4-3 in overtime. The game took place in Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in the Long Island borough of Uniondale.

A crowd of 8,652 witnessed one of the more exciting games for the Isles all season.

Jake Voracek was the hero in this game, as he drove to the net in overtime, which is 4-on-4 play and converted a Kris Russell rebound past the goalie for the game-winner.

The Jackets received goals in regulation from Antoine Vermette, Chris Clark and R.J. Umberger. The Islanders got their scoring from Trent Hunter, Michael Grabner and John Tavares.

The Jackets win moved their record to 14-6-0 overall and into a first-place tie with the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL’s Western Conference.

Islanders become first NHL team to fire their coach

The New York Islanders are usually one of the NHL’s worst teams year-in and year-out.

So it was no surprise earlier in the week when they fired head coach Scott Gordon.

Gordon was let go after a 10-game losing streak left the team at the bottom of the overall NHL standings.

After a 4-2-1 start, the Isles (4-10-3) are tied with Edmonton for the fewest points (11) this year.

Gordon was replaced on an interim basis by Jack Capuano, coach of the Islander’s American Hockey League affiliate.

Capuano takes over a team that was swept on its three-game California trip and is 0-9-1 in the last 10 games.

Gordon, in the last year of his contract, was hired by the Islanders out of the AHL back in 2008. In two-plus seasons, he went 64-94-23. He will remain with the organization as an adviser to general manager Garth Snow.

compiled from staff, wire and Colorado Avalanche reports

The Colorado Avalanche will have Adam Foote back after signing their captain to a one-year deal.

Foote was a very important cog in Colorado’s turnaround in 2009-2010 as he helped guide a  young squad into the playoffs a season after finishing last in the Western Conference. the Avalanche almost upset the number-1 seeded San Jose Sharks before  losing in 6 games.

The 39-year-old defenseman finished the regular season with 9 assists in 67 contests.

To Colorado, his biggest contributions may have come away from the ice. Foote invited rookie forward Matt Duchene to live in his basement, serving Duchene’s mentor and easing his transition into the NHL.

Under Foote’s guidance, Duchene quickly adapted to life in the NHL, proving to be be quite a skilled with the puck. Duchene led all NHL rookies in points (55) and tied for most goals (24) with John Tavares of the New York Islanders.

Foote has played in 1,107 games in 18 seasons and amassed 1,501 penalty minutes playing for Colorado and Columbus.

National Hockey League Notes

compiled by the staff

The Philadelphia Flyers needed three periods, overtime and an exciting shootout in the 82nd game of the season on Sunday to make the playoffs in front of their fans in Philly.

Goalie Brian Boucher stopped Olli Jokinen on the final attempt of the shootout to send the Flyers into the playoffs while eliminating the New York Rangers with a 2-1 victory.

The final game of the regular season felt more like Game 7 of a playoff series. Win and advance; lose and go home.


Teemu Selanne scored the 606th goal in possibly his final NHL game, and Anaheim beat Edmonton 7-2 Sunday night in the league’s regular-season finale.

With no playoffs to look forward to, Selanne and Scott Niedermayer will have plenty of time to decide whether they’ll return for the 2010-2011 season.

Ducks players and fans didn’t know whether they were bidding farewell to franchise scoring leader Selanne and or captain Niedermayer. Both mainstays of Anaheim’s 2007 Stanley Cup championship team haven’t decided whether they’ll retire or return to the team who missed the playoffs for the first time since 2004.


In Tampa Bay’s 3-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Sunday, Steven Stamkos chased down a loose puck and got an empty-net goal with 13 seconds left to tie Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby for the league lead and share a piece of the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy.

Sidney Crosby scored twice in the Pittsburgh Penguins win over the New York Islanders. Washington’s Alex Ovechkin remained at 50 after he was held scoreless in the Capitals’ loss to Boston.


Sidney Crosby finished the regular season with a flourish. Crosby scored twice to reach 50 goals for the first time and added three assists that helped Pittsburgh beat the New York Islanders 6-5 in overtime Sunday.

Crosby’s second-period breakaway gave him 51 goals this season, tying him with Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos for the Maurice Richard Trophy as the league’s top goal scorer. It was Crosby’s first NHL crown in that category.


Henrik Sedin wins the Art Ross Trophy with 112 points in 82 games, becoming the first Canucks player to win the hardware and he earned it with a 4-point game in the Canucks season finale on Saturday night.


The Tampa Bay Lighting are going to start over again.

New Owner Jeff Vinik cleaned house on Monday, firing coach Rick Tocchet and general manager Brian Lawton after the struggling franchise missed the playoffs for the third straight season.

It’s the team’s third coaching change in two years.

The Lightning went 34-36-12 this season and are 53-69-26 since Tocchet replaced Barry Melrose in November 2008.

Since winning the 2004 Stanley Cup championship, Tampa Bay has not advanced beyond the first round of the playoffs.
