The NHL Daily Fix is your morning wake-up call with news and notes for the day's hockey action.
The best of Thursday's action
• Corey Crawford needed a little help from Duncan Keith , as shown above, to get that game into overtime on Thursday night. The Chicago Blackhawks beat Dallas Stars thanks to Marian Hossa 's game-winning goal off a brilliant pass from Patrick Kane .
• Wade Redden made his St. Louis Blues debut on Thursday night and played a little more than 17 minutes. He was credited with one hit and two blocked shots in their 3-0 win over Nashville Predators .
• Stephen Weiss sat out the Florida Panthers ' 3-1 loss to Ottawa Senators on Thursday night with what was described as a lower body injury.
He joined Marcel Goc and Sean Bergenheim as injured Florida Panthers . And speaking of Bergenheim, the Panthers aren't treating him after he was injured while playing overseas during the lockout. As general manager Dale Tallon said, via the Miami Herald, "I don't know where he is." [Miami Herald]
• The Washington Capitals are 0-3 for the first time since 1993-94, and they've looked pretty bad doing it. That includes Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens .
Said Capitals forward Troy Brouwer : "Embarrassing is almost the right term right now. Pathetic is probably a better one. You know, I feel bad for the fans. I’d like to finish a game with at least 50 percent of the fans still in the stands. Their reaction is completely warranted -- booing us. We haven’t earned any respect. We haven’t earned any of their passion, their ambition. We’ve got to turn something around, and we’ve got to do it fast." [Washington Post]
• Jaromir Jagr had to leave Dallas' 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago with an apparent groin injury. If you've followed his career at all, you know that has been a constant problem for him. [Dallas Stars]
• Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter on the officiating in their overtime loss at Edmonton Oilers : "Gotta be a record for non five-on-five play. It's gotta be a record,” he said. “They [the fans] bombed the ice with stuff. It was awesome because they're all [hacked] off. I'm sure the league thinks it was a great-officiated game." [Los Angeles Times]
• Eric Tangradi has struggled on the Pittsburgh Penguins ' second line with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal , so he has been demoted to fourth line duty. He played a little more than four minutes during Wednesday's loss to Toronto. [Pittsburgh Tribune-Review]
