The PHT Nightcap - Tuesday, March 16

We put a lot of content on this blog each day, and we understand it can be a bit tough to keep track of everything. So at the end of the day we’ll put up a nightly recap of all of that day’s news. Presenting the Pro Hockey Talk Nightcap:

Assist of the Night: Marty Brodeur! - Brodeur with a textbook pass up the ice, and David Clarkson scores. Great play.

Save of the Night: Steve Mason - Mason has had a pretty disappointing season, but he had one heck of save here.

Jan Hejda likely out the rest of the season - The Blue Jackets haven’t had the best overall season, and now their best defenseman could be gone for the year.

No one wants to face Detroit in the first round - The Red Wings may not be the most dominant team like they’ve been in the past, but I doubt there are many teams looking to face them once the playoffs start.

Stempniak comes out of nowhere...again - Lee Stempniak actually played well enough to earn NHL star of the week honors. Imagine that.

Matt Cooke wins the first-ever Bertuzzday award! - It wasn’t much of a contest, as Cooke was deemed the most despicable player of last week.

Once-mighty Ducks have reason for optimism - The Ducks’ season may be over, but here are some reasons to keep the chin up as the season comes to an end.

College player Matt Fratin suspended one game - Not even the WCHA is immune to dirty hits and controversial punishments.

Alex Ovechkin’s ‘apology’ - Ovechkin apologizes, sort of.

Vote for the next Betuzzday winner - Matt Cooke, meet Alex Ovechkin.

Steve Downie fined $1,000 for Crosby slew-foot - I don’t think I will ever understand the NHL’s punishment policy.

Senators go for new look to bust out of slump - It didn’t help, in case you were wondering.

Jonathan Cheechoo: Searching for a new start - Four years ago he had 56 goals. Now he’s in the AHL.

Ryan Miller deserves MVP recognition - Forget Alex Ovechkin -- although he’s been great -- my vote is for Miller.

Chicago turns to AHL goaltender for help? - With Huet down with the flu, the Blackhawks recalled Corey Crawford. Maybe he can provide some hope.

From dorm rooms to the NHL - Casey Wellman was a in college yesterday; now he’s an NHL player.

Michael Leighton leaves game with ankle sprain - Every Flyers can has to be nervous as heck right now.
