Yak will skate with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko…...

Joel Quenneville, when he coached the Colorado Avalanche, always used to say, “If you don’t score on your 5-on-3, you don’t win the hockey game.” For about the first 54 minutes of Sunday’s Avs game in Detroit at (this will never seem right in saying) Little Caesar’s Arena, Coach Q’s old bromide looked as big a lock as anything said…...

I’ve always cast a hairy eyeball on forwards changing positions. If one spent most of one’s hockey-playing life at one position, chances are that’s where one will best thrive now and in the future.
