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.
Jeff Zatkoff stopped 42 of 46 shots in Pittsburgh's 5-3 loss to San Jose Thursday night.
It was Zatkoff's first start since Jan. 30 against Los Angeles. Except Joe Thornton's game-winning goal, Zatkoff played a pretty solid game. He now has a 9-3-1 record with a 2.75 GAA and .910 save percentage. The Penguins will play their next game tonight against Anaheim and Marc-Andre Fleury will probably start in that contest.
Olli Maatta scored two goals in Pittsburgh's 5-3 loss to San Jose Thursday evening.
Maatta now has nine goals and 18 assists in 61 games this season. He's been one of the NHL's top rookies this season. Chris Kunitz also scored for the Penguins, while Sidney Crosby ended the game with a minus-5 rating.
Antti Niemi blocked 19 of 22 shots in San Jose's 5-3 win over Pittsburgh Thursday night.
Niemi got the nod against Pittsburgh after Alex Stalock started two straight games. Niemi allowed two goals in the first period but after that he played well. He now has a 30-13-6 record with a 2.42 GAA and .911 save percentage.
Brent Burns scored two goals in San Jose's 5-3 win over Pittsburgh Thursday evening.
Burns scored in his second straight game after a 19-game goal scoring drought and he now has 17 goals and 16 assists with a fantastic plus-24 rating in 51 games this season. He also had a game-high five hits in the win. Joe Thornton had a goal and an assist, while Patrick Marleau and Justin Braun also scored for the Sharks. Joe Pavelski assisted three goals in the victory.
Evgeni Nabokov allowed three goals on 29 shots in the Islanders 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers Thursday night.
Nabokov has only won one game in his last five starts and he has blown a third-period lead 10 times this season. He now has a 11-13-6 record with a 2.89 GAA and .901 save percentage. The Islanders will have their next game tonight against Calgary so look for Anders Nilsson to start.
