Montreal Canadiens extend Jeff Petry with $25M deal

  Montreal Canadiens extend Jeff Petry with $25M deal Though he still doesn’t get quite the recognition of one, Petry has developed into one of the best two-way defensemen in the league over the last few years. In fact, his 128 points over the last three seasons put him 17th among all NHL defenders, while his 36 goals sit 11th over the same time period. Though he’ll never get the same type of press that teammate Shea Weber receives, Petry is almost equally important to the Canadiens and showed it this postseason.

Condensed season puts more pressure on goaltending

  Condensed season puts more pressure on goaltending Even those teams with outstanding starters will be looking for legitimate backup options as we head towards the condensed 2020-21 season. It may not even end up needing the “2020” part, given the regular season is now not expected to start until January.If that’s the case and the league continues to remain steadfast on playing the full 82-game schedule, next season will be extremely difficult on starting goaltenders. Back-to-back situations will come up much more frequently, with three-in-four-nights often also becoming the norm.

Chastain became emotional at Bristol Motor Speedway after his most recent Xfinity Series finish on Friday, when he recorded his fifth second-place result in what’s so far been a winless season. When asked post-race about a potential opportunity with Ganassi’s No. 42 team, Chastain said he’d jump at the chance.

Several teams reportedly spoke with Sabres about Jack Eichel's availability

  Several teams reportedly spoke with Sabres about Jack Eichel's availability If Buffalo is going to turn things around, it’s hard to imagine it would be without Eichel leading the charge. The young forward is a true franchise talent who now has 337 points in 354 career games, despite often playing with an underwhelming roster. Even at that $10M cap hit he likely represents excess value for the team, unlike some of his high-priced teammates. (Jeff Skinner, who carries a $9M cap hit through 2026-27, scored just 23 points this season.)All that said, Eichel has been quite clear in the past about his desire to win.

Rangers expected to buy out Henrik Lundqvist

  Rangers expected to buy out Henrik Lundqvist The end of an era is upon us. After 15 years of brilliant play in the New York net, the Rangers and decorated goaltender Henrik Lundqvist are set to part ways. TSN’s Darren Dreger reports that the Rangers will buy out the final year of Lundqvist’s contract, with an announcement expected on Wednesday. At 38, Lundqvist will be an unrestricted free agent for the very first time. © Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports After 15 years of brilliant play in the New York net, the Rangers and decorated goaltender Henrik L As Dreger explains, this was not an easy decision for New York.

Chip Ganassi Racing officials announced Friday morning that Ross Chastain will drive the No . 42 When a three- race opportunity with Ganassi materialized, Chastain opted to take it and forego a His performance there was an eye-opening one to the team owner. “From the moment I met Ross , I

Kenseth returned to the Cup Series after the COVID-19 shutdown, hired as a midstream replacement for Larson, who was suspended by NASCAR and ultimately dropped by team owner Chip Ganassi on April 14. Kenseth, the 2003 series champion, had not driven in the Cup Series since running a partial schedule with Roush Fenway Racing in 2018.

Kenseth’s best finish this season was a runner-up effort at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July, marking his only top five in his return. The 48-year-old veteran sits 25th in points after missing the first four races of the season, and the CGR No. 42 team changed crew chiefs — Phil Surgen in for Chad Johnston — ahead of the Cup Series’ doubleheader weekend at Michigan last month.

Chastain also has three wins in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, coming in 91 starts over 10 years. He has made 79 career Cup Series starts with one top-10 finish, 10th in the 2019 Daytona 500 for owner Jay Robinson.

Chastain has been among the most prolific participants in all three NASCAR national series in recent years, frequently making double-duty appearances during race weekends. He has made 43 national-series starts this year, down from 77 last season and 74 in 2018 as he has tried to concentrate more on his Xfinity efforts with the Kaulig organization.

Chastain is an eighth-generation watermelon farmer from Alva, Florida. He has embraced the “Melon Man” nickname and has punctuated his NASCAR wins by smashing watermelons on the track or in Victory Lane.

Hendrick Motorsports expected to change the No. 88 to No. 5? .
Here is why bringing the No. 5 back would be the right decision for the organization. The history of the No. 5 with Hendrick MotorsportsThe No. 5 car has been a staple of the Hendrick Motorsports brand since its debut in 1984. Geoff Bodine drove the car from 1984-89, accumulating seven wins. Ricky Rudd replaced Bodine from 1990-93. Rudd, one of NASCAR’s best road course drivers, won four races in his four-year stretch.One of the most successful runs of the No. 5 was Terry Labonte from ’94-2004. Labonte won one championship in 1996 and earned 12 wins throughout his tenure at Hendrick Motorsports.
