Stanley Cup Playoffs

Blues bemoan lack of killer instinct, consider changes

Tuesday, 04.29.2014 / 4:34 PM / Stanley Cup Playoffs

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- What now?

That's the million-dollar question the St. Louis Blues must answer as they head into another offseason of uncertainty after an early Stanley Cup Playoff exit.

Doug Armstrong and Ken Hitchcock both sat at a table Tuesday in front of media members two days after the Blues, who set a franchise record for wins in a season with 52, were eliminated in a six-game Western Conference First Round series by the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. And their consensus response was simple: The Blues lack a killer instinct.

For the second consecutive season, the Blues led a series 2-0 before losing four straight and were left thinking, "What if?"

Lightning accent positives after playoff sweep

Thursday, 04.24.2014 / 7:15 PM / Stanley Cup Playoffs

Lonnie Herman - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA -- For the Tampa Bay Lightning, two days weren't nearly enough to take away the sting of being swept out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Losing four in a row to the Montreal Canadiens in their Eastern Conference First Round series is too fresh a scar to have healed so quickly. The hurt was still evident Thursday, when the Lightning gathered at Tampa Bay Times Forum for end-of-the-season interviews with the coaching staff.

'A Season Like No Other' loaded with highlights

Monday, 04.14.2014 / 8:30 PM / Stanley Cup Playoffs

NHL.com

NEW YORK -- Following are some highlights of the 2013-14 National Hockey League regular season, which concluded yesterday:

RECORD ATTENDANCE

A total of 21,758,902 fans filled NHL venues to 96% of capacity in 2013-14. The total figure includes the 376,837 who packed the six Winter Classic, Heritage Classic and Stadium Series games. Had those six games instead been played before a sellout crowd at the designated home team’s arena, the attendance figure (21,492,671) still would have exceeded the previous single-season high of 21,475,223 set in 2008-09.

RIVALRY-DRIVEN REALIGNMENT, PLAYOFF FORMAT

Realignment and a revised playoff format that emphasizes rivalries has resulted in a tantalizing list of first-round playoff matchups that features:

* the first postseason meeting of the ‘Original Six’ Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings since 1957

* the inaugural clash between Eastern Conference newcomers the Columbus Blue Jackets and their closest geographic rival just 185 miles to the east -- the Pittsburgh Penguins

NBC broadcasters enjoy rivalry aspect of playoffs

Monday, 04.14.2014 / 5:17 PM / Stanley Cup Playoffs

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Since rivalries drive interest, it's no surprise the NBC Sports Group is thrilled with the eight matchups it will broadcast in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"This is probably going to be the best playoffs we've had, and we've had it on NBC for nine years now," said Pierre McGuire, NBC's lead Inside the Glass analyst.

"This has got a chance to be one of the most memorable playoffs we've had in the last 20 years."

For the third straight year NBC will broadcast every game of the playoffs on its series of networks, using the main network plus cable outlets NBC Sports Network, CNBC and NHL Network. The matchups this season are dictated by the NHL's division-based playoff format and feature five regional rivalries and an Original Six clash.

Greenberg ranks five decades of Cup memories

Tuesday, 06.25.2013 / 4:13 PM / Stanley Cup Playoffs

Jay Greenberg - Special to NHL.com

Jay Greenberg has covered hockey for parts of five decades, covering the expansion Kansas City Scouts and the Philadelphia Flyers as a beat writer, as well as writing for Sports Illustrated, The Hockey News, The Toronto Sun and New York Post. He authored the book Full Spectrum, a history of the Flyers' first 30 years, while another book, Gordie Howe's Son: A Hall of Fame Life in the Shadow of Mr. Hockey, co-authored with Mark Howe, will be published in October. This fall, during Hockey Hall of Fame induction weekend in Toronto, Greenberg will receive the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for excellence in hockey journalism, presented by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. To celebrate a life in hockey, NHL.com asked Greenberg to rate his top 20 moments from the Stanley Cup Playoffs during his illustrious career.

Regrets? I have a few, even after being lucky enough to cover every Stanley Cup Final but two between 1976 and 2003, then three more since.

Forced against my will as a general sports columnist to cover basketball come spring, I only was able to watch pieces of the grand wars between the Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche on television. And in the salary-cap era, this old dynasty lover fears he never again will see a Final rematch like Detroit and the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2008-09. I wanted badly to be there.

My problem is that I have seen enough to realize that I never will see enough. So when asked by NHL.com to rank my greatest playoff memories, I only wanted to know: How many? We decided on 20. Here they are:

It's time we got a break. People that have watched us, I'm sure they said, 'Finally, some things are going our way.' We'll take the breaks when they go our way.
