United States rallies to beat Russia at Ivan Hlinka

Right wing Brock Boeser scored three goals to help rally the United States to a 7-4 victory against Russia in Group A play of the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup on Tuesday at Alcaplast Arena in Breclav, Czech Republic.

The United States, which held a 46-25 advantage in shots, scored three goals in the third period to snap a 4-4 tie.

"This was an important match for us," U.S. coach Derek Plante said. "Our goal is to get the championship, so we needed a win today. This is a short tournament, so we have to keep getting better really quickly. Russia has a great team, but we had many power plays, which helped us a lot. In the last game against the Czech Republic [a 4-2 loss Monday], we were highly penalized and even though we played well, lost because of that. [On Tuesday], it was a big deal."

Kings' Nolan has father/son day with Cup

Ted Nolan has his fair share of work to do in order to turn the Buffalo Sabres into Stanley Cup contenders, but thanks to his son he got a visit from the famous trophy this week.

Jordan Nolan, who has won the Stanley Cup twice in three seasons as a fourth-line wing for the Los Angeles Kings, received the trophy Thursday in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and took the opportunity to spend some quality time with dad.

Although Ted Nolan has not won the Stanley Cup yet in his coaching career, he did win the Jack Adams Trophy during his first stint coaching the Sabres in the mid-90s, leading to a picture in which father and son posed with their respective hardware.

Jordan Nolan was set to be honored Friday during ceremonies in Garden River, including a trip through town parading the Cup on a fire department vehicle.

Kings forward Richards brings Cup back to Kenora

Los Angeles Kings forward Mike Richards got to enjoy his second day with the Stanley Cup in the past three years Friday. As he did in 2012, he brought the most iconic trophy in sports to Kenora, Ontario for a quiet day on the lake.

Located about 124 miles east of Winnipeg in northwestern Ontario, Kenora saw hundreds of its citizens come out to again get up close with the Stanley Cup. Fans from around the region lined the streets as Richards led a modest parade through town.

"He's an amazing hockey player, he's from Kenora and he wins the Stanley Cup lots," young fan Mason Prefontaine told the Kenora Daily Miner and News.

Standing on the bed of a white pickup truck, Richards was driven alongside the Cup and the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl, which the Kings received after defeating the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
