Mayors, governors make Stanley Cup Final wagers

The mayors of New York and Los Angeles are gambling their ability to sing in front of millions of people on the outcome of the Stanley Cup Final.

If the Los Angeles Kings win, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio will go on Kimmel's show and sing the Randy Newman song, "I Love L.A."

Rangers' Carcillo thrilled suspension was reduced

LOS ANGELES -- New York Rangers forward Daniel Carcillo thought his season might be over, but having his suspension reduced by the NHL has offered him hope he might have the chance to play in the Stanley Cup Final against the team that traded him five months ago, the Los Angeles Kings.

Carcillo was suspended 10 games for a violation of rule 40.3 for "deliberately applying physical force to an official" for an incident during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Montreal Canadiens (May 22).

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman heard Carcillo's appeal Friday and on Tuesday determined the incident should be reclassified as a violation of rule 40.4 for "physical force to an official for the sole purpose of getting free of such official during or immediately following an altercation." Bettman reduced the suspension to six games.

Kings defenseman Regehr says he's ready to go

LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr is ready to play in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final if coach Darryl Sutter wants to put him in the lineup.

Regehr hasn't played since sustaining a lower-body injury early in Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round series against the Anaheim Ducks. He has missed 13 straight games, but has been practicing with the team since late last week and declared himself fit to play Wednesday at Staples Center against the New York Rangers (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

But Regehr knows he is at the mercy of Sutter, who would have to disrupt a lineup that on Sunday was good enough to win Game 7 of the Western Conference Final against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Boyle has fond memories of time with Kings

LOS ANGELES -- As New York Rangers center Brian Boyle waited to take his turn on the podium for Stanley Cup Final media day Tuesday, former teammate Sean O'Donnell walked over, shook his hand and leaned in for a quick hug.

Boyle played all of 36 games for the Los Angeles Kings five years ago, but he still retains friends from the brief period that put him on the path to the NHL. Boyle, picked 26th in the 2003 NHL Draft by the Kings, will face his former team in the Final starting Wednesday at Staples Center (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

Boyle came up in the Kings' organization after a four-year career at Boston College. He played first for coach Marc Crawford and then for Terry Murray during the period when Murray was developing the Kings' younger players into what would become, under Darryl Sutter, a Cup-winning team in 2012.

Talbot, Miller remain day-to-day for Rangers

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Goaltender Cam Talbot and forward J.T. Miller did not skate for the New York Rangers on Monday and are considered day-to-day, according to coach Alain Vigneault.

Miller skated on his own before the Rangers practiced Monday and is expected to participate in practice Tuesday. He has been out with an upper-body injury since falling shoulder-first into the goal post during the second period in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Montreal Canadiens. He has two assists in four playoff games after totaling three goals and six points in 30 regular-season games.

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
