Kings' celebration continues in nearby beach towns

Five days after the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons, they continued celebrating Wednesday with their fans in beach towns surrounding the city.

Thousands gathered in the streets of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach to cheer on the Kings, who defeated the New York Rangers in five games in the Stanley Cup Final, which culminated with Alec Martinez's double-overtime goal Friday at Staples Center.

"It was really important for us to bring the Stanley Cup down here to the South Bay because we feel like we're part of the community," forward Justin Williams told the Los Angeles Daily News. "This certainly makes us feel welcome."

Lightning coach Cooper eager to take next step

Tampa Bay Lightning coach and Jack Adams Award finalist Jon Cooper joined NHL Live to look back at the 2013-14 season and what the future holds for his team.

Cooper, Mike Babcock of the Detroit Red Wings and Patrick Roy of the Colorado Avalanche are the three finalists for the Adams Award, presented to the coach who has "contributed the most to his team's success." The winner will be announced June 24 during the 2014 NHL Awards from Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. The 2014 NHL Awards will be broadcast by NBCSN in the United States and CBC in Canada.

Cooper took over the Lightning team late in the 2012-13 season, when they finished 28th in the League standings. In his first full season, he guided the Lighting to a 46-27-9 record (101 points) and second-place finish before they were swept by the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Kings visit Dodger Stadium with Stanley Cup

Several Los Angeles Kings visited Dodger Stadium with the Stanley Cup on Tuesday when the Dodgers hosted the Colorado Rockies.

The Kings won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons Friday with a 3-2 double-overtime victory in Game 5 of the Final against the New York Rangers.

Defensemen Drew Doughty and Willie Mitchell, and forwards Jeff Carter, Jarret Stoll and Justin Williams, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy as most valuable player of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, were among the Kings to take the Cup to Dodger Stadium.

The Kings took batting practice during their visit.

"These guys have got pretty good strokes, actually," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told cbsla.com. "And they're actually really athletic, especially with the ball down. I guess it's a little bit like that slap shot, right?"

Predators GM open to trading first-round draft pick

Nashville Predators general manager David Poile joined NHL Live to discuss what's next for the organization and his plans for the 2014 NHL Draft.

The Predators own the No. 11 pick of the 2014 draft, which begins June 27 (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN) at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Nashville finished the regular season 38-32-12 and failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"I've made it known that we're trying to improve our forwards," Poile said. "We'd like to get a top-six forward if we could. If we can do that in a trade, that would be great. If that took trading a draft pick, or even our first pick, I would be open to that. I've made it known to a lot of teams that if they were willing to trade a top forward, I'd be willing to trade the No. 11 pick in the draft."

Predators could move No. 11 pick for 'top-six forward'

The Nashville Predators have the No. 11 pick in the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft but general manager David Poile said he is open to trading the selection.

During a press conference Tuesday in Nashville, Poile said he would trade the pick if a "top-six forward" was the return.

"I've already been approached and … it's a possibility," Poile said. "There's always that possibility I would trade that first-round pick. I've made that open to some people I've talked to. It would be for a top forward if we could do that. I'm not predicting that [a trade] will happen, but if someone had that top-six forward I would certainly consider trading that first-round pick."

Capitals GM MacLellan targeting goaltending, defense

Washington Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan joined NHL Live to discuss what's on tap for the offseason.

MacLellan became the sixth general manager in Capitals history when he was promoted on May 26 after spending the past 13 seasons with the organization as a pro scout, director of player personnel and assistant GM.

"I wasn't sure I was going to get the job," MacLellan said. "I was just trying to give the most honest opinion I could of where our organization was at, and what my vision was going forward. I don't think I was critical of ownership, but it was more of this is the way I would see it happening in the future, where ownership and the manager and the coach are all in sync on what we're doing philosophically and they were going to support each other."

Panthers GM talks coaching search, draft on NHL Live

Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon was a guest of NHL Live to discuss his thought process for hiring a new coach and his team's position at the 2014 NHL Draft.

The Miami Herald reported Monday that former Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, former Vancouver Canucks and Colorado Avalanche coach Marc Crawford, and former Columbus Blue Jackets coach Gerard Gallant are under serious consideration.

"It's been a lot of fun," Tallon said. I've gotten to meet a lot of interesting characters and some great coaches, some veteran guys and some new guys. I've interviewed at least a dozen coaches in the last month. The good news is they all want to come here because of the young players and the talent pool we have coming, and already have on our roster. We've narrowed it down to half a dozen, and probably down to three probably by [Tuesday], and hopefully get it done by Friday, but no later than mid-week of the draft."

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
