Kings hero Gaborik has found a home in Los Angeles

Sunday, 05.04.2014 / 1:18 AM / Ducks vs. Kings - 2014 SCP Second Round

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

ANAHEIM -- The Los Angeles Kings were able to land Marian Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets before the NHL Trade Deadline, while the Anaheim Ducks reportedly attempted to acquire Vancouver Canucks center Ryan Kesler but were unsuccessful.

Each team was looking for another impact forward to add to a Stanley Cup-contending roster. Though Gaborik had struggled with injuries and inconsistency, he's been a boon for the Kings and never more so than when he scored the game-tying goal with seven seconds remaining in regulation and the winner 12:07 into overtime Saturday night in a 3-2 victory against the Ducks at Honda Center in Game 1 of this Western Conference Second Round series.

Gaborik has settled in on the top line for Los Angeles, and he now has five goals in eight postseason games for the Kings.

"When you play him and [Anze Kopitar] together, they're like this dynamic duo," Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said. "When they're both on their games, it's hard to stop them. [Gaborik] was a huge part to our win tonight, three points, two huge goals. When those two are on their game and when all of lines are on their game, we're a tough team to play against. That's what we need."

L.A.'s Robyn Regehr leaves Game 1 with injury

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 10:09 PM / Ducks vs. Kings - 2014 SCP Second Round

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

ANAHEIM -- Los Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr left Game 1 of this Western Conference Second Round series against the Anaheim Ducks midway through the first period with an undisclosed injury and did not return.

Regher's last shift ended with 10:05 remaining in the period. He was hit into the boards behind his own net by Ducks forward Teemu Selanne midway through the shift but was able to remain involved in the play and made a pass to help get the puck out of the zone.

He did not return for the second period, and the Kings announced early in the third that he was done for the night.

Canadiens find comfort in split after blowing lead

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 6:58 PM / Bruins vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP Second Round

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BOSTON -- The Montreal Canadiens did exactly what they set out to do by splitting the first two games on the road in their Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Boston Bruins.

It's how that split came about that may linger in the Canadiens' minds for a couple of days.

Montreal did not lose in regulation time once in 42 games when it led after two periods, going 35-0-3 in the regular season and 4-0-0 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs entering Game 2 on Saturday.

The Canadiens were 10 minutes away from making that 43 games and 5-0-0 in the playoffs, but a 3-1 lead turned into a 5-3 loss in a matter of minutes, and now Montreal is left to wonder what might have been.

Bruins turned frustration around in Game 2

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 6:45 PM / Bruins vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP Second Round

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins have been one of the top teams in the NHL for years, but the Montreal Canadiens have consistently found a way to give them problems.

A big reason has been frustration.

Frustration with the Canadiens' speed, frustration with officiating, frustration with their inability to beat a team that is not nearly as good as they are, at least on paper.

As the second period of Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Second Round series progressed Saturday, that frustration began to rear its ugly head again.

Bruins defenseman Andrej Meszaros, playing for the first time in two weeks, was called for roughing against Tomas Plekanec at 16:23 of the second, giving Montreal a rare 4-on-3 power play.

Just as that power play became a standard 5-on-4, Thomas Vanek scored to put the Canadiens ahead 2-1.

Bruins forward Smith making name for himself

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 6:27 PM / Bruins vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP Second Round

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins forward Reilly Smith scored two goals in his last 30 games of the regular season.

Bruins coach Claude Julien kept trust in the 23-year-old, and that faith has been rewarded in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Smith scored the game-winning goal Saturday, when the Bruins evened their best-of-7 Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Montreal Canadiens with a 5-3 win at TD Garden.

Game 3 is at Bell Centre at Montreal on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS), and Smith will start it with three playoff goals.

Ramsay: Defense is key for Blackhawks and Wild

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 6:23 PM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2014 SCP Second Round

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks, 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 was most recently an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.

The Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Minnesota Wild 5-2 in Game 1 of their Western Conference First Round series Friday. But longtime coach Craig Ramsey told NHL.com that the score in that game was not indicative of how well the Wild played. In fact, he believes Minnesota gave Chicago all it could handle before Patrick Kane scored two third-period goals that decided the game.

Stoner the bedrock for Wild's physical game

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 5:39 PM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2014 SCP Second Round

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

CHICAGO -- The Minnesota Wild have won games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs by utilizing their size, strength and experience.

It's a formula that enabled them to win their Western Conference First Round series against the Colorado Avalanche in seven games and an approach that must be adhered to in their second-round meeting against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Defenseman Clayton Stoner is more than happy to lead that charge.

Staal stands out for Rangers after rough recovery

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 5:05 PM / Penguins vs Rangers - 2014 SCP Second Round

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PITTSBURGH -- Marc Staal said he never doubted.

Never gave up hope that despite the concussion, despite the serious eye injury, he could get back to being the player he was before. The one who was a first-round draft pick, who played in the 2011 NHL All-Star Game and was on his way to becoming the next great New York Rangers defenseman.

Now that he's fully healthy, the hockey world is seeing what Staal, 27, always believed would happen.

Wild won't fret even though they trail again

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 2:39 AM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2014 SCP Second Round

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

CHICAGO -- The Minnesota Wild again face an uphill battle in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Chicago Blackhawks made certain of that in Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round on Friday when they scored three straight goals to snap a tie on the way to a 5-2 victory against the Wild at United Center.

It's nothing new to the Wild, who spent all of their first-round series playing from behind against the Colorado Avalanche before finally winning Game 7 in Denver for their first postseason series victory in 11 years. The Wild overcame 2-0 and 3-2 series deficits and four one-goal deficits in Game 7 before Nino Niederreiter's overtime goal gave them a 5-4 win.

Wild coach Mike Yeo was asked if that confidence gained against the Avalanche will be put to good use against the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Second-line spark carries Blackhawks in Game 1

Saturday, 05.03.2014 / 2:28 AM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2014 SCP Second Round

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Joel Quenneville's mixing and matching of forwards has again paid off with a combination that's doing big things for the Chicago Blackhawks.

In the middle of a tough Western Conference First Round series against the St. Louis Blues, the Blackhawks coach moved Ben Smith up from the fourth line to center the second line. He flanked Smith with left wing Patrick Sharp and right wing Patrick Kane.

They started creating scoring chances against St. Louis and helped Chicago win that best-of-7 series in six games, but the line really busted out against the Minnesota Wild on Friday at United Center. Paced by Kane's two goals in the third period, they were a difference-maker in a 5-2 victory in Game 1 of the second-round series.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
