Michael Russo's NHL short takes

  • Updated: February 23, 2013 - 8:02 PM
Not hurting in the standings

The Ottawa Senators keep finding a way to win despite injuries to Jason Spezza, Erik Karlsson, Milan Michalek, ahem, Guillaume Latendresse and now Craig Anderson.

If they make the playoffs, Paul MacLean is a lock for Coach of the Year.

 

Karlsson had his Achilles' severed by Matt Cooke, who sent a text apologizing. Cooke, a renowned cheap-shot artist, wasn't suspended because there's no proof it was intentional.

"I received a text. Didn't think too much of it and didn't reply," Karlsson said. "I don't think he and I have anything to say to each other."

Ron Rolston endorsement

James van Riemsdyk, off to a tremendous start in Toronto with 11 goals, scored two goals in the Leafs' victory in Ron Rolston's debut as Buffalo's coach.

       

Rolston coached Van Riemsdyk in the U.S. development program in Ann Arbor, Mich.

"I'm a big believer in him as a coach," Van Riemsdyk said. "Ron made me into the player I am today. I had some raw abilities, and he molded them into some skills.

"He was good at making young guys comfortable and confident out there. He gave me a kick in the butt every now and then when he thought I needed it. It was my first exposure to video, and he had a little room called the shooting room. That's where I learned to shoot and stickhandle."
