Neal Pionk battle’s John Gilmour in NHL18

Neal Pionk, fresh off of scoring his first NHL goal Saturday night against Buffalo, had another first to talk about. He and John Gilmour visited EA Sports NHL and battled one another I won’t say who won, but Pionk did complain about a bad controller.

Henrik Lundqvist has no plans of shutting down despite injury

Alain Vigneault was asked about the possibility of shutting Henrik Lundqvist down for the rest of the season following a hit he suffered against the Columbus Blue Jackets last week. Henrik has missed the last two games.

“You go tell that to Hank,” the coach said with a laugh to Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post, as the famously competitive Lundqvist had suffered from some head/neck/back pain after a collision during the 5-3 loss to the Blue Jackets on Tuesday night that kept him from dressing for Thursday night’s 4-3 loss to the Flyers. “Good luck. I’m not doing that. Not a chance I’m doing that.”

Looks like we will be seeing Hank soon again in goal.
