NHL News and Notes for March 10, 2007

The team analysis features will resume in the new couple of days as the playoff pictures start to shape up more and the teams that will be making the playoffs this year become apparent.

Colorado Avalanche rookie Paul Stasny is making a run at the Calder this year, pumping up his play as of late by going on a hot scoring streak. He’s currently on a seventeen game point streak, tying the NHL record for rookies. Between Stasny, Evgeni Malkin and Anze Kopitar, this year’s rookie race in the NHL is looking very exciting. Pittsburgh’s Jordan Staal is also on a run as of late, but he is expected to finish just outside of the big three.

With the injury to LA’s Kopitar, Stasny was able to move past him in the stats. Stasny now has 65 points (22 goals and 43 assists) in just 68 games. Malkin currently leads with 71 points.

Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby became the youngest player ever to garner two straight 100 point seasons. He is also the first player in the NHL to do it this year, scoring a power play goal tonight against the Rangers.

Despite having a fairly lengthly goal-less streak, Crosby is maintaining his scoring lead in the NHL. In fact, Crosby only has 28 goals on the season and the remainder of his points fill out as assists. Sid has only scored two goals in his past 19 games.

Colin Campbell made no decision as of yet on the Chris Simon suspension. He met with Simon and various team representatives from the New York Islanders this morning, but could not come to a decision regarding the suspension on Simon’s brutal on-ice incident on Thursday night.

Simon said that he was “disgusted” by his actions after he had watched the tape. He also offered his apologies to Hollweg and was glad he was okay. It is still not clear as to when the league will announce their final decision on the suspension, but it is expected quite soon.
