The New York Rangers have a new star forward. The Columbus Blue Jackets have one fewer headache and three more quality players. The Blue Jackets finally met captain Rick Nash's midseason request and dealt him on Monday along with a third-round pick and a minor league defenseman to the Rangers for centers Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov , defenseman Tim Erixon and a first-round pick next year. The deal gives the Rangers a big, sturdy right wing to add to their core of solid young players and also helps them counter moves made by other Eastern Conference powers this off-season.

SOCHI, Russia - Canada will have the opportunity to defend the gold medal it won four years ago at Vancouver, a chance it earned Friday with a thoroughly sound defensive effort that stifled a fast and prolific U.S. team in the Sochi Olympic hockey semifinals. A second-period goal by Jamie Benn, who wasn't invited to Canada's Olympic orientation camp last summer but played his way onto the team, held up as the difference in a 1-0 victory by Canada at the Bolshoy Ice Dome. Benn redirected a pass from defenseman Jay Bouwmeester past a helpless Jonathan Quick and Benn's teammates protected the lead with discipline and energy.

VS. COLUMBUS Time: 5 p.m. On the air: TV: Channel 56; Radio: 830. Where: Honda Center. Records: Blue Jackets 11-12-3; Ducks 14-10-3. Records vs. Blue Jackets: 1-0-0. Update: Teemu Selanne's last 13 goals have come on the power play, tying the second-longest streak in NHL history. That's good news, as the Ducks' power play ranks ninth in the NHL. It is also bad, as Selanne has only one even-strength goal, meaning the second line hasn't been carrying its weight. The Blue Jackets' Rick Nash had eight goals in the past 10 games before facing the Kings on Saturday night.

SOCHI, Russia -- Drew Doughty threw down the gauntlet as far as who wins bragging rights should he and Team Canada defeat his Kings teammates Jonathan Quick and Dustin Brown of Team USA in Friday's Olympic tournament semifinal, but Quick wasn't taking the bait. Though Doughty said he hoped to confront Quick in a shootout, the Kings and U.S. goalie said neither would have an advantage if it came down to that. “He's seen me go a lot of times in the shootout. I've seen him go a couple times,” Quick said Thursday after the U.S. team's practice.

Times columnist Helene Elliott rates the pluses and minuses in the NHL from the previous week: + If Sidney Crosby can be said to do anything quietly, he is quietly having a sensational start. Through Sunday he led the NHL in scoring with 17 points, including at least one point in all eight games the Penguins had played. That's a personal best to start a season for Crosby. + St. Louis forward David Backes scored six goals in the Blues' first seven games, matching his total in last season's 48-game schedule.

Ducks left wing Matt Beleskey revealed Thursday that he has a broken left thumb, suffered in a fight in the team's preseason finale Sept. 28 against San Jose, and will be sidelined “a week or so, two weeks,” he said. Beleskey played in the Ducks' first two games and even had an X-ray taken at the team's first stop in Colorado last week but it didn't show the break. Pain “kept on lingering,” Beleskey said. He was scratched for Sunday's game at Winnipeg. Another X-ray Wednesday in Anaheim found the fracture and he was put in a cast up to the wrist.

TEAMS LISTED IN PREDICTED ORDER OF FINISH The New Jersey Devils hope history repeats itself on two fronts. They won the Stanley Cup in 1995, after the NHL's first lockout-shortened, 48-game schedule, and they won the East last season as the No. 6-seeded team. But if Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby is healthy and Rick Nash scores the goals the New York Rangers couldn't manufacture last season, the Devils might not even make the playoffs. A look at how the conference shapes up: 1. NEW YORK RANGERS 2011-12 finish: 51-24-7 (109 points)

This could be the most important week of Dean Lombardi's six seasons as general manager of the Kings. If he acquires a high-impact scorer by the trade deadline of noon Pacific time Monday, he can salvage a season that began with high expectations but descended into a grim battle to score goals and make the playoffs. Failure to reach the postseason could cost Lombardi his job and there would be no reason to argue he should stay. The only elite player available and able to deliver the necessary scoring jolt is Columbus left wing Rick Nash , who reportedly listed the Kings among teams he'd be willing to join in a trade.

Amare Stoudemire scored 26 points and Steve Nash had 18 points and 10 assists before sitting out the fourth quarter while the Phoenix reserves completed a 123-101 rout of the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night that gave the Suns home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Suns made 14 of 24 three-pointers, 11 of 17 in the first three quarters. The Suns can finish no worse than No. 4 in the West and would be No. 3 if they win at Utah on Wednesday. Denver, which finished its regular season, would get the No. 4 spot and a first-round home-court edge if Phoenix beats the Jazz.
