Red Wings' Babcock, Lightning's Cooper, Avalanche's Roy are finalists for NHL coaching award

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Mike Babcock of the Detroit Red Wings, Jon Cooper of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Patrick Roy of the Colorado Avalanche are finalists for the Jack Adams Award.

The NHL Broadcasters' Association voted for the top coach after the regular season. The winner is announced June 24 in Las Vegas.

Babcock led the Red Wings to a 93-point season and their 23rd consecutive playoff berth, the longest active streak in North American pro sports.

Cooper is in his first full season as a head coach. He guided the Lightning to second place in the Atlantic Division a year after they were 28th in the overall standings.

Roy, in his rookie season as an NHL coach, helped Colorado finish third in the overall standings after placing 29th overall the year before.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
