Mathieu Joseph commented on his collision with Yanni Gourde during the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Jon Cooper also had a joke about his two forwards physicality.

During the opening game, Yanni Gourde was mic’d up. Watch some highlights of this game through his comments.
The team also gave Mikhail Sergachev an iPhone and he filmed some behind-the-scenes moments of the Bolts road trip.

Sergachev also met up with Andrej Sustr (this joke is courtesy of Justin).
“That was something where emotion got over me,” Kucherov told me on Thursday after the morning skate. “That was definitely stupid by me. I didn’t mean to hurt the guy or do anything bad. It’s a learning process. I know from now on I can’t do that stuff (especially) in the playoffs. I want to make sure I’m at the top of my game.’’
It’s a very small sample size, but through three games this year, Hedman has played an average of 22:19 a game, down nearly half a minute from last season. That’s also down substantially from his Norris year, when the big Swede logged nearly 26 minutes per night. But with Shattenkirk, Mikhail Sergachev and Ryan McDonagh joining the crew in recent years, Hedman doesn’t have to do everything at all times. And given the grind that is the Stanley Cup playoffs, that’s a good thing. If Hedman remains fresh throughout the 2019-20 campaign, the Lightning will have put themselves in an excellent position to exorcise the demons of playoffs past.

Kucherov, Stamkos and Point rarely saw much ice time together last season, as the Lightning preferred to deploy more balanced lines rather than have their top three scorers all together on a single unit. Combining the trio together still could prove to be a relative rarity as the season develops, perhaps being saved for third periods or even only important late-game situations.

As a whole, Syracuse survived their turnovers by limiting Cleveland’s second chances at the puck and staying out of the penalty box. Still, it’s an exhausting way to win the game, especially when coupled with some of the post whistle shenanigans both teams participated in throughout the night. It will be interesting to see if some of the feistiness carries over into tomorrow’s match-up.

You get the point. Rod Brind’Amour -- the Hurricanes’ 49-year-old coach infamously nicknamed “Rod the Bod” as a player -- still gets after it. So much so that when the Hurricanes arrived to camp this year to do their off-ice conditioning test -- two half-mile sprints on the Assault bikes in under 60 seconds each, with a three-minute break in between -- the players found out that their coach had already completed the test.
