Hellebuyck, Nelson lead United States past Norway

Connor Hellebuyck (Winnipeg Jets) made 22 saves and Brock Nelson (New York Islanders) had the game-winning goal in the second period as the United States won for the second time in as many days at the 2015 IIHF World Championship, defeating Norway 2-1 at CEZ Arena in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

Trevor Lewis (Los Angeles Kings) had the other U.S. goal, answering the opening goal of the game by Norway's Morten Ask.

"They jumped on us early," U.S. forward Jack Eichel, expected to be one of the top-two picks in the 2015 NHL Draft, told the IIHF website. "We knew it would be a tight checking game. It was a little more physical and chippy. They had some guys with some big open ice hits. It was a defensive battle."

Ducks forward Perry on scoring binge, leads playoffs

It's taken Corey Perry only five games to lead the Stanley Cup Playoffs in scoring. He could have done it in two.

The Anaheim Ducks forward had his second four-point game of the postseason in a 6-1, Game 1 win Thursday against the Calgary Flames in the Western Conference Second Round.

Perry had seven points in the four-game first-round sweep of the Winnipeg Jets, including two goals and two assists in that Game 1.

"You can see it on Corey Perry's face, how much he wants to score and how much he wants to be the guy that does the damage," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau told the Ducks website Friday. "That's probably why he gets into a lot of trouble with other players more than other guys. He can be an antagonizer and an instigator as well as a great player."

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
