Five reasons why the Avalanche were eliminated

Thursday, 05.01.2014 / 2:53 PM / 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

As crushing as the Colorado Avalanche's Game 7 loss to the Minnesota Wild was in the Western Conference First Round, they have plenty to be excited about moving forward.

In Patrick Roy's first season as Colorado coach, he took a team that had the worst record in the Western Conference last season and transformed it into a first-place group in 2013-14. Rookie Nathan MacKinnon was a revelation, and along with teammate Paul Stastny, a pending free agent, tied for the Stanley Cup Playoffs lead with 10 points. Franchise goaltender Semyon Varlamov is signed for the next five years, and there is a core of bright young talent.

But in a close series that ended with Nino Niederreiter's overtime goal in Game 7, a few glaring issues tipped the balance.

Why were the Avalanche eliminated by the Wild? Here are five reasons:

Five reasons why the Flyers were eliminated

Thursday, 05.01.2014 / 11:33 AM / 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

It was a season of peaks and valleys for the Philadelphia Flyers.

From the depths of a 1-7-0 start, they finished third in the Metropolitan Division to return to the Stanley Cup Playoffs after sitting out the 2013 postseason.

Captain Claude Giroux went from zero goals, seven assists and a minus-12 rating in his first 15 games to finish as the League's third-leading scorer and a Hart Trophy finalist.

In their Eastern Conference First Round series against the New York Rangers, they peaked with their backs to the wall to win Game 6 at home, 5-2, but there was one final valley, a 2-1 season-ending loss in Game 7 one night later at Madison Square Garden.

Here are five reasons the Flyers have gotten an earlier start to their offseason than they hoped.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.

— Predators defenseman Seth Jones after Nashville was eliminated by Chicago in Game 6 on Saturday
