Tkachuk's "Grand" Goal

Keith Tkachuk’s power play goal in the second period of today’s Blues' 4-2 win over Atlanta was his 1,000th NHL career point. The former Terrier left wing becomes the sixth U.S. born player to reach that milestone. The former Winnipeg Jets first round draft choice in 1990 and three-time Olympian has scored 511 goals and 489 assists in 1,077 games.

Former Terrier All American blueliner Freddy Meyer registered his first two-goal NHL game leading the Islanders past Ottawa last night, 4-2. His shot for the point was deflected home by Andy Hilbert to tie the score in the first period. Then, Meyer jumped up into a rush and put home a snap shot to put the Isles on top to stay with 35 seconds remaining in the second. Just two minutes into the final stanza, his power play slapper increased the lead. (Video links) .

Former BU captain and Bruins head coach Mike Sullivan has returned to the Tampa Bay Lightning as an associate coach to interim coach Rick Tocchet.

Dan McGoff is on the move again. After beginning the season in Europe, the former BU blueliner joined ex-Terriers Chris Dyment and Matt Radoslovich with the ECHL Trenton Devils. Now he’s gone to the left coast, traded to the Stockton Thunder.
