The Detroit News Published 1:45 AM EST Nov 20, 2018 St. Louis — Amid a disappointing showing that fell well short of Stanley Cup expectations, the St. Louis Blues fired coach Mike Yeo a quarter of the way into the season and named Craig Berube as his interim replacement. St. Louis general manager Doug Armstrong announced the change hours after Monday night's loss to the Los Angeles Kings, the Blues' third shutout in the last four games. At 7-9-3, the Blues are in last place in the Central Division, and their 17 points rank next-to-last in the NHL, ahead of only Los Angeles. Something had to give for the Blues after they failed to make the playoffs last season, falling one point short when they lost to Colorado in their 82nd game. They lost in the second round under Yeo in 2017, after he was a midseason replacement for fired coach Ken Hitchcock.

By Curtis Pashelka | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: September 22, 2018 at 8:11 pm | UPDATED: September 23, 2018 at 5:25 am SAN JOSE — The Sharks said they had a surprise in store for the first intermission of their game against the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday at SAP Center. Generally, though, it was known that they would be debuting their new third jersey. The surprise came in who wore it in public for the first time. After the lights dimmed inside the arena after the end of the first intermission, defenseman Erik Karlsson — also making his debut in front of the fan base — emerged from a smoky walkway the Sharks use to come out of right before every game sporting the new sweater. Karlsson skated on the ice for a few seconds before he did an in-house interview.

Gregg Krupa The Detroit News Published 6:51 PM EDT Sep 21, 2018 Detroit — Fresh off neck surgery in March, when he left the Red Wings lineup as the leading scorer among defensemen with 33 points, Mike Green had been cleared this week to return to the lineup. But, as Green practiced, he felt tired. Too tired. Some preliminary tests are leading to further tests, and the Wings fear he may miss the start of the season, general manager Ken Holland said Friday. Coach Jeff Blashill added some information after guiding the split squads in three practices. “Mike Green has a virus that attacked his liver,” Blashill said. "He's seeing an infectious disease person today. We should know more here, in the next little bit. "But, we don't know how long he's going to be out. We don't know the totality of this."
