Ramsay: Canadiens must rally behind new goalie

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, NHL.com has enlisted the help of former NHL coach Craig Ramsay to break down the action. Ramsay will be checking in throughout the series.

Ramsay played in more than 1,000 NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres before going on to coach the Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers and Atlanta Thrashers. In the 2000 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he led the Flyers to the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Final. Ramsay most recently was an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.

The Montreal Canadiens might be stung by the news that goalie Carey Price will not play again in the Eastern Conference Final, but longtime NHL coach and player Craig Ramsay said all they have to do is look back at their own history to find examples of goalies stepping up and shining in the big moment when no one was expecting them to.

Monday, 05.19.2014 / 9:50 AM / Prospects

Ed Klajman - NHL.com Contributor

LONDON, Ontario -- It was not the game that was expected from Edmonton Oil Kings goalie Tristan Jarry on Saturday, in his first start at the 2014 Memorial Cup.

The 2013 second-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins (No. 44) allowed five goals on 32 shots as the Western Hockey League champions lost to the Guelph Storm 5-2.

Even Edmonton coach Derek Laxdal described Jarry's performance as "not great."

So how did the 19-year-old react to the disappointment of that game?

He emerged from the locker room the same way he always does after a game, with a big smile on his face.

Blackhawks create traffic in front of Quick

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

CHICAGO -- The Anaheim Ducks scored 15 goals against Jonathan Quick in the seven-game Western Conference Second Round series that ended Friday.

In the Western Conference Final last year, the Chicago Blackhawks scored 16 goals against Quick and the Kings, in five games, and advanced to the Stanley Cup Final.

Clearly, the Blackhawks believe they know a thing or two about beating one of the game's best and brightest goaltenders.

The Blackhawks put three pucks past Quick in a 3-1 victory at United Center on Sunday afternoon in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final. Game 2 is Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS).

Blackhawks shake off no-goal call on way to win

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

CHICAGO -- Since the start of the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Chicago Blackhawks have found themselves in a few tough spots in 71 games of make-or-break hockey.

They have conquered the majority of the obstacles placed in their path, winning the Stanley Cup in 2010 and 2013. But other challenges have gotten the better of them, leaving them full of regrets and disappointment.

Whether success or failure was found, each of those experiences has built the character of the team that took the ice Sunday afternoon to play the Los Angeles Kings in the first game of the Western Conference Final.

So it should have come as little surprise when the Blackhawks were able to shake off a controversial call and the change in momentum it produced in favor of the Kings in the second period of the game, which Chicago eventually won 3-1 to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-7 series.

Ramsay: Kreider didn't mean to crash into Price

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, NHL.com has enlisted the help of former NHL coach Craig Ramsay to break down the action. Ramsay will be checking in throughout the series.

Ramsay played in more than 1,000 NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres before going on to coach the Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers and Atlanta Thrashers. In the 2000 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he led the Flyers to the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Final. Ramsay most recently was an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.

Craig Ramsay believes goalies should be protected. He's not a fan of any player who maliciously runs into a goalie.

But Ramsay doesn't think New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider fits the mold of a player whose intentions are to injure goaltenders.

In breaking down the Rangers' 7-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final, Ramsay told NHL.com that he doesn't think Kreider had any ill intentions when he went barreling feet first into goalie Carey Price early in the second period Saturday.

Canadiens' Price uncertain for Game 2 vs. Rangers

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- On the southeast corner of Bell Centre stands a photo of Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price that is six or seven stories high.

He is larger than life here. And a cornerstone. And possibly injured.

One game into the Eastern Conference Final, Price's health has become the biggest story in the series. And how he might have been injured, if indeed he is, ranks a close second.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien would not confirm Sunday that Price will play in Game 2 of the series against the New York Rangers on Monday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS). The Rangers lead the best-of-7 series 1-0.

Rangers mourn with St. Louis at mother's funeral

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

MONTREAL -- Less than 24 hours after beating the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final, reality punched back at the New York Rangers and perspective ruled the day.

Instead of practicing Sunday, the Rangers traveled to Laval, Quebec, to attend the funeral of Martin St. Louis' mother, France, who passed away on May 8 from a heart attack. She was 63 years old.

Players, coaches, management and other staff members all went to be there for their mourning teammate, who has played through grief and has four points, including two goals, in four games (all wins) since his mother died.

Guelph's Rychel comes full circle at Memorial Cup

Sunday, 05.18.2014 / 10:38 AM / Prospects

Ed Klajman - NHL.com Contributor

LONDON, Ontario – For someone who is technically a Memorial Cup rookie, forward Kerby Rychel has a lot of valuable experience to draw upon when it comes to junior hockey's championship tournament.

The Columbus Blue Jackets prospect, selected in the first round (No. 19) of the 2013 NHL Draft, was 11 years old when he attended the last Memorial Cup held in London in 2005. He witnessed an all-time classic when Sidney Crosby played his final games in junior hockey, representing the Rimouski Oceanic, and the London Knights won that franchise's first title led by future Anaheim Ducks star Corey Perry and a number of other players who are now in the prime of their NHL careers.

Four years later, Rychel was in Rimouski, at the Memorial Cup held there, taking morning skates with the Windsor Spitfires. He was able to do that because the Oceanic was and still is managed and co-owned by his father Warren, who played for five different NHL teams over a 12-year career. The young Kerby was overjoyed to see the powerhouse Spitfires win the Memorial Cup that season.

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.
