Chabot: Sticking to game plan paid off for Ducks

Friday, 04.17.2015 / 2:06 PM / Ducks vs Jets - 2015 SCP First Round

Evan Sporer - NHL.com Staff Writer

For additional insight into the First Round series between the Anaheim Ducks and Winnipeg Jets, NHL.com has enlisted the help of Frederic Chabot to break down the action. Chabot will be checking in throughout the series.

Chabot was the goaltending coach for the Edmonton Oilers from 2009 to 2014. He played in the NHL for five seasons, spending time with the Montreal Canadiens, the Philadelphia Flyers, and the Los Angeles Kings.

The Winnipeg Jets took the lead into the third period against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 1 of their best-of-7 Western Conference First Round series Thursday, but the Ducks were able to regain their composure and score three times in the third period to win 4-2.

Lightning-Red Wings series familiar to AHL followers

Friday, 04.17.2015 / 1:28 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to NHL.com

From behind the lens of the American Hockey League, the Eastern Conference First Round matchup between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Detroit Red Wings is more than just two divisional rivals going head-to-head: it’s an opportunity to revisit some recent history.

When the Grand Rapids Griffins defeated the Syracuse Crunch to win the AHL's Calder Cup championship in 2013, it also marked a graduation for many players in the series to the NHL. Two years later, their parent clubs are doing battle with many of the same faces hitting the ice in pursuit of another Cup.

Of the players on Detroit's playoff roster, 10 have their names engraved on the Calder Cup as members of the 2013 Grand Rapids Griffins: forwards Joakim Andersson, Landon Ferraro, Luke Glendening, Tomas Jurco, Tomas Tatar, Gustav Nyquist, Teemu Pulkkinen, and Riley Sheahan, defenseman Danny DeKeyser, and goalie Petr Mrazek.

MONTREAL -- Ottawa Senators forward Mark Stone's status for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference First Round series against the Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET; CBC, CNBC, TVA Sports) will be determined at game time, coach Dave Cameron said Friday.

"It's like every other player," Cameron said. "As long as it's not detrimental to his health that's the first thing you ask and you go from there."

Stone participated in Ottawa's optional morning skate Friday. He worked on his stickhandling and shot pucks before taking part in a light shooting drill and leaving for the dressing room about six minutes after he jumped on the ice.

Penguins know they must be more disciplined

Thursday, 04.16.2015 / 11:35 PM / Rangers vs Penguins - 2015 SCP First Round

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- The Pittsburgh Penguins know if they're going to have any chance of defeating the Presidents' Trophy-winning New York Rangers in their Eastern Conference First Round series, they're going to have to refrain from taking unnecessary penalties.

The Penguins looked eager to hand Game 1 of this best-of-7 series to the Rangers on a silver platter in the first period, when they took four minor penalties and played shorthanded for 6:43. As a result, an already injury-depleted defense corps was forced to constantly contain one of the NHL's fastest units, captain Sidney Crosby saw 3:42 of ice time, and the Penguins fell behind 2-0 at Madison Square Garden on Thursday.

"I can't remember a single [penalty] off the top of my head, but they're able to generate a lot of momentum out of those," Pittsburgh defenseman Ben Lovejoy said. "We have half our team sitting on the bench for far too long and can't get into a rhythm, and the other half is out there killing, playing very difficult minutes. It tires you out, and that gets a team out of their rhythm; we can't do that."


Rangers' Girardi sustains injury in Game 1 win

Thursday, 04.16.2015 / 10:58 PM / Rangers vs Penguins - 2015 SCP First Round

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi was injured with 9:29 remaining in the third period Thursday at Madison Square Garden after he was struck on the right side of his face by a deflected shot from Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz.

Girardi did not return to the game. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said Girardi was being seen by the team dentist, but he did not have any further update.

The Rangers protected their one-goal lead while playing with five defensemen in the final 9:29 of the third to defeat the Penguins 2-1 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round. The Rangers have a 1-0 lead in the best-of-7 series, which continues on Saturday with Game 2 at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA).
