Brian Elliott's stellar month-long stretch has kept the St. Louis Blues competitive during a time when their offense often hasn't been.

The 2017 NHL draft is coming to the United Center. The Blackhawks had another goal tossed out during Tuesday night's 2-0 loss to San Jose when Sharks coach Peter DeBoer made a successful video challenge for goalie interference, prompting Chicago coach Joel Quenneville to cut short his postgame press conference likely out of fear of drawing a big fine for criticizing the officiating.

The Columbus Blue Jackets signed defenseman Ryan Murray to a two-year, $5.65 million contract extension Thursday. The 22-year-old Murray has four goals and 13 assists in 55 games this season, his third with Columbus. ''Ryan Murray is a talented, smart player who has been a very steady performer on our blue line and we are extremely happy to have this deal completed,'' general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said in a statement.

Brian Elliott is on a roll. Too bad the St. Louis Blues have little to show for it. The 30-year-old Elliott has allowed one or fewer goals in regulation and overtime in five of his last seven starts, a run that has put him among the NHL's best with a 2.07 goals-against average and .932 save percentage on the season.

The memorabilia is valuable, but the memories can't be bought or sold. (AP Photo/File)

''Whether or not we have it in our hand, we still both won gold medals,'' said Dave Christian, a key member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic team that produced the ''Miracle on Ice'' who went on to play 15 seasons in the NHL. Bill Christian was a star on the 1960 team that also beat the heavily favored Soviet Union on the way to winning Olympic gold. ''Whatever we could find that had made many, many moves and been stored away,'' Dave Christian said.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NHL has fined Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri $5,000 for making a throat-slashing gesture at Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano earlier in the week.

The Vancouver moms might have to become regulars on the Canucks' road show. Ryan Miller stopped 33 shots to end a five-game losing streak and the Canucks won their second straight road game with their mothers in the stands, holding off the Arizona Coyotes 2-1 on Wednesday night. ''We said that if we won tonight, there probably would be another moms' trip next year,'' said Vancouver defenseman Alex Biega, who made a late goal-saving play.

The stigma of Calgary's fall from last year's playoff darlings to this season's surprising disappointment added another black mark when coach Bob Hartley benched three forwards, including the Flames' top two scorers. Calgary begins a back-to-back set of road matchups with foes sitting above them in the Pacific Division standings as Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan and Lance Bouma return to the lineup Thursday night against the San Jose Sharks. The trio served as healthy scratches for Tuesday's 4-3 win over Toronto after Hartley levied discipline for an unspecified violation of team rules.

The New York Rangers are missing their captain and one of their leading scorers. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 34 shots for his third shutout of the season and 58th of his career, guiding the New York Rangers past the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-0 on Wednesday night. ''I just liked the way we competed,'' Lundqvist said.
