Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's NHL rumor rundown, there is news out of Toronto and comments from Kasperi Kapanen on his being scratched, the Arizona Coyotes have the potential to reshape the trade deadline and Pierre LeBrun looks at six trades he believe may go down over the next two weeks. Finally, with all the major players in Minnesota, is something brewing? Kapanen Scratched After Over Sleeping Fans and media in Toronto were waiting on Monday to hear from Kasperi Kapanen after he was scratched from the Maple Leafs lineup Saturday. The assumption was that maybe he'd been late for something and Sportsnet's NHL insider Chris Johnston reported exactly that. Kapanen says he was scratched on Saturday because he overslept for Friday's practice and was late as a result. He believes the reason he was scratched instead of fined or punished in another way was that because this is now the second time he's done this under coach Sheldon Keefe....

Chicago Blackhawks

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Patrick Kane scored in the shootout and ran his points streak to 12 games, and Corey Crawford stopped both shootout attempts he faced, leading the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night. Brandon Saad scored twice in regulation and the Blackhawks won their first game out of the break and sixth of their last seven. Kane scored the shootout winner and assisted on both Saad goals. Crawford finished with 40 saves. Brad Richardson and Conor Garland scored for the Coyotes, who have lost five straight and are 1-5-3 in their last nine games. Arizona has lost all three games out of the break, including back-to-back overtime games at home. Goaltender Antti Raanta had 42 saves, including a dramatic save of Saad's backhander at 14:29 of the third period. Raanta was on his stomach and flipped his back legs and skates in the air to deflect the puck — like a scorpion. Phoenix Coyotes goalie Antti Raanta (Brad Rempel-USA TODAY...

Coyotes Goaltending

The Arizona Coyotes, owing to a 5-8-1 skid over the past five or so weeks, and a 1-5-1 mark in their last seven contests, are dropping like a lead balloon in the Western Conference standings. The Coyotes have dropped from first to fifth in the division seemingly in the blink of an eye, and, with Darcy Kuemper still on the shelf with a lower-body injury, things might not get better until Arizona's starting goaltender gets back on the ice. In Kuemper's absence, the crease has, for the most part, belonged to backup Antti Raanta, and the results have not been fruitful for Arizona. Raanta has posted a dreadful .897 save percentage and a sky-high 3.38 goals-against average over his last 10 starts (11 appearances) - he's simply not giving the team a chance to win when he plays. AHL call-up Adin Hill has been better in his five starts (nine appearances), posting a .920 SV% and 2.40 GAA, but the 'Yotes are just 2-2-1 in his starts. Adin Hill (right) has a legitimate claim to be...
