Quick received eight first-place votes and earned 24 of a possible 27 points.

Boston Bruins forward David Krejci, who received the other first-place vote, finished a distant second with 9 points. His teammate, defenseman Zdeno Chara, finished third with 7 points.

Past four Cup champs comprise Conference Finalists

Thursday, 05.30.2013 / 12:17 AM / 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Shawn P. Roarke - NHL.com Senior Managing Editor

The final four of the Stanley Cup Playoffs is truly a tournament of champions.

For the second time in the history of the League, the final four teams standing in the playoffs are the past four champions. The Los Angeles Kings (2012), Boston Bruins (2011), Chicago Blackhawks (2010) and Pittsburgh Penguins (2009) are the remaining teams in 2013.

The fifth-seeded Kings will play the top-seeded Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final. Coincidentally, the Blackhawks booked their passage to the conference final with a Game 7 overtime victory Wednesday against the Detroit Red Wings, who won the Stanley Cup in 2008. Brent Seabrook scored the series-clinching goal for Chicago, who rallied from 3-1 down in the best-of-7 series.

In fact, both Western finalists needed all seven games to subdue their second-round foes.

The Western Conference Final opens Saturday at United Center in Chicago (5 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS).

Later that evening, the East's top seed, the Penguins, host the fourth-seeded Bruins in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final (8 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC, RDS) at Consol Energy Center.

Rangers' Staal confident he'll be OK in 2013-14 season

Monday, 05.27.2013 / 4:03 PM / 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Marc Staal said he doesn't think his injured right eye will ever fully recover, but the New York Rangers defenseman expects to come back next season and be the same player he was before a deflected shot effectively ended his 2012-13 season in early March.

"My belief is once everything settles down and I get comfortable with it, I'll never have to be asked about it again," Staal said Monday when the Rangers met the media for the final time this season. "I don't think it will be an issue."

Staal said his biggest problem once the swelling subsided was a small cut in his eye that caused it to cramp and resulted in him feeling disoriented and dizzy. He said that was the problem he experienced after playing in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Washington Capitals -- the only game Staal played after he was struck in the eye by Kimmo Timonen's deflected slap shot during a game against the Philadelphia Flyers on March 5.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- After being traded from the San Jose Sharks to the New York Rangers on April 2, Ryane Clowe played 14 games, including two in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, limited due to injury.

In the wake of the Rangers' elimination by the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the forward said he would entertain the idea of playing more games for New York next season and beyond.

"I loved it here," Clowe said Monday when the Rangers met the media for the final time this season. "I loved the guys. It's a first-class organization and it was just special putting on a Rangers jersey. I really felt that way and I'd love to come back."

Richards hoping for better 2013-14 with Rangers

Monday, 05.27.2013 / 3:05 PM / 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Brad Richards did not mince words when asked about his second season with the New York Rangers.

"Everything was a mess," Richards said Monday when the Rangers met the media for the final time before heading into the offseason.

Richards made a pro-rated $12 million this season, the second of a nine-year, $60 million contract he signed in the summer of 2011, but after a subpar regular season, he was demoted to the fourth line in Game 6 against the Washington Capitals in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs before being left out of the lineup completely for Games 4 and 5 against the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Monday, 05.27.2013 / 2:20 PM / 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Erin Nicks - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA – The future remains uncertain for the captain of the Ottawa Senators.

Daniel Alfredsson spoke to media Monday regarding his future, and whether the 40-year-old would return for an 18th NHL season.

"There are no thoughts as of now, actually," Alfredsson said. "There's always an empty feeling once you lose out in the playoffs. Now it's [about] enjoying some family time and probably allow myself at least a week to even think about it."

Quote of the Day

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.

— Capitals forward Andre Burakovsky after scoring his first two Stanley Cup Playoff goals against his childhood idol Henrik Lundqvist
