TRADE DEADLINE: LUONGO HEADS BACK TO SOUTH FLORIDA
In a flurry of afternoon trades, one day prior to the NHL's 2014 trade deadline, Roberto Luongo (finally) got what he wanted all along when he was traded to the Florida Panthers on Tuesday for goalie Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias. Check out analysis of every deal consummated.
BLUES GET MILLER
The first major shoe to drop before this year's trade deadline left the St. Louis quite a bit better by landing Ryan Miller and Steve Ott from the Sabres in exchange for Jaroslav Halak, Chris Stewart, a prospect and draft picks, including a first-rounder in 2015.
Peter Budaj allowed five goals on only 23 shots in Montreal's 5-2 loss to Phoenix Thursday night.
Budaj lost his second straight game and didn't play very well. He has allowed 15 goals in his last four starts and he now has a 8-6-2 record with a 2.35 goals-against average and .911 save percentage. The Canadiens really need Carey Price back from his injury.
Andrei Markov scored a goal and registered an assist in Montreal's 5-2 loss to Phoenix Thursday night.
Montreal tied the game at 7:13 when Markov's blast from the left circle beat Mike Smith. Markov now has six goals and 32 assists in 65 games this season. Alex Galchenyuk also scored for the Canadiens, while defenseman P.K Subban added two helpers in the loss.
Radim Vrbata scored two goals in Phoenix's 5-2 win over Montreal Thursday evening.
Vrbata has five goals in his past nine games and enjoyed being paired with new Coyote and fellow Czech Martin Erat, who was plus-2 and appeared to give the offense a lift. Vrbata now has 17 goals and 25 assists in 61 games this season. Shane Doan and Oliver Ekman-Larsson both had a strong night with a goal and an assist, while Mike Ribeiro added two helpers in the victory. Lauri Korpikoski also scored for the Coyotes.
