Five questions: Landeskog on Roy, Avs' success

Tuesday, 03.18.2014 / 1:45 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Colorado Avalanche captain and forward Gabriel Landeskog:

Though their coach was in the press conference room at Bell Centre answering questions from a familiar bilingual media for 30 minutes on Monday, the Colorado Avalanche players were free to venture out in one of North America's finest cities for an afternoon away from hockey, away from the rink. It was a quick, but well-earned respite.

The Avalanche flew to Montreal after beating the Ottawa Senators 3-1 at Canadian Tire Centre on Sunday. The win was their third in the past four games and seventh in 10 since coming back from the break for the 2014 Sochi Olympics. The two points they earned in Ottawa lifted Colorado back into second place in the Central Division, one point ahead of the Chicago Blackhawks.

It's amazing how quickly things have changed in Denver with Patrick Roy as coach.

Avalanche coach Roy ready to return to Bell Centre

Tuesday, 03.18.2014 / 12:34 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Patrick Roy's relationship with the Montreal Canadiens and their legion of fans is, in a word, complicated.

It could be argued Roy was the historic franchise's greatest Stanley Cup Playoff hero, playing goal behind two teams in 1986 and 1993 that had no business winning the championship, but did almost exclusively because of him.

The Stanley Cup victory in 1993 was the 24th in Canadiens history, by far the most in the NHL.

It was also the most-recent.

Tortorella savors process that won 2004 Stanley Cup

Monday, 03.17.2014 / 3:10 PM / NHL Insider

Lonnie Herman - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA -- John Tortorella took time Monday to do something he rarely does, look back and reminisce.

The occasion is the 10-year reunion of the Tampa Bay Lightning’s 2003-04 Stanley Cup team. The organization has gathered 14 former players from that team along with Tortorella, currently coach of the Vancouver Canucks, who was behind the bench for Tampa Bay, and they will be recognized before the game against Vancouver on Monday.

"I'm not a big guy to get reminiscent about all this stuff, but I think I owe that team to speak on it," Tortorella said. "It is the 10th-year anniversary. You're locked in with those guys and that will never change."

The players and Tortorella got together for dinner Sunday after the Canucks arrived from Sunrise, Fla., where they played the Florida Panthers earlier in the day.

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

With the push for the Stanley Cup Playoffs in full swing there are teams trying play spoiler, and within those teams you can find fantasy gold.

Daily Primer March 17: Bruins seek ninth win in row

Monday, 03.17.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The Boston Bruins will go for a ninth consecutive victory in front of a nationally televised audience Monday night.

Boston plays the Minnesota Wild for the first time in more than two years when it hosts them at TD Garden (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN2). The Bruins lead the Eastern Conference with 95 points and made it eight in a row with a 5-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday.

"We [don't] talk about the streak. We just talk about game by game, and it just seems to give us a better feeling and a better focus," Boston coach Claude Julien said. "So that's the way you don't get content or comfortable and you keep plugging away."

Here's a closer look at the action Monday:

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
