Predators' Weber has surgery on dislocated kneecap

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 6:59 PM / News

Robby Stanley - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber had surgery after he sustained a dislocated kneecap in Game 2 of the Western Conference First Round series against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Weber took a hit from Chicago forward Brandon Saad behind the Nashville net and struggled to get back to the bench. Weber said he knew right away that something was wrong.

"I felt something kind of pop a little bit, snap I guess," Weber said. "It was my kneecap that kind of subluxed, so I just felt that come across. I didn't know at the time exactly what it was, but I knew that's not good, that shouldn't happen. I tried to stand on it. Obviously, it was pretty bad pain in the knee."

Blackhawks' Bickell could be X-factor vs. Wild again

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 6:17 PM / X-Factor

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The Minnesota Wild tend to bring out the best in Bryan Bickell during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Chicago Blackhawks are banking on it happening again in the Western Conference Second Round as they prepare to face Minnesota for the third consecutive postseason. Bickell, a 6-foot-4, 223-pound power forward, had a combined seven goals and three assists in the Blackhawks' series victories against Minnesota the previous two seasons.

Last year, he scored four goals and had two assists in a second-round series that Chicago won in six games.

"I don’t know [why]," Bickell said. "I have to look over the video to see how I scored those goals to see what I need to do to be successful against this team. It's a new season, a new series. Things change. Different players need to step up."

Flames tab goalie Hiller to start Game 1 vs. Ducks

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 5:49 PM / Ducks vs Flames - 2015 SCP Second Round

NHL.com

Goalie Jonas Hiller will start for the Calgary Flames in Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round against the Anaheim Ducks, Flames coach Bob Hartley said Monday.

Hiller started all six first-round games against the Vancouver Canucks. He had a 2.20 goals-against average and .931 save percentage but was pulled in Game 6 after allowing two goals on three shots. Karri Ramo, who also relieved Hiller in Game 2, allowed two goals on 19 shots to help the Flames to a series-clinching 7-4 victory.

But Hiller will receive the first chance to face the Ducks, who did not re-sign him after last season.

Built for playoffs, Ferland is Flames' X-factor

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 5:44 PM / X-Factor

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- A sign in Calgary's inner-city tells all that's needed about the impact forward Micheal Ferland has had on the Calgary Flames in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

'Sorry Nenshi, Ferland for mayor.'

Elected in 2010, Naheed Nenshi is the city of Calgary's current mayor, was the first Canadian voted 'World Mayor' prize in 2014 by the City Mayors Foundation and was ranked the second most-important person in Canada by MacLean's magazine.

Making his playoff debut this month, Ferland has quickly become a cult hero in Calgary after delivering 40 hits and scoring two goals and four points in helping eliminate the Vancouver Canucks in six games in the Western Conference First Round.

Wild get another crack at knocking off Blackhawks

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 4:06 PM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2015 SCP Second Round

NHL.com

The Minnesota Wild will hope the third time is the charm against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Rivals in the Central Division, this will be the third consecutive year when the Wild and Blackhawks face each other in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Wild were the first team the Blackhawks dispatched on the way to winning the Stanley Cup in 2013, needing five games to eliminate them in the first round. In 2014, the Wild were fresh off their first series win in more than a decade, ending with a Game 7 overtime victory against the Colorado Avalanche, when the Blackhawks defeated them in OT to wrap up that series in six.

Now, with the Wild coming off an upset of the Central Division champion St. Louis Blues and the Blackhawks eliminating the higher-seeded Nashville Predators, each in six games, they're set to play in the Western Conference Second Round.

Rangers' Hagelin again raising play in postseason

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 3:59 PM / Rangers vs Capitals - 2015 SCP Second Round

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Rangers left wing Carl Hagelin wears the distinction of being a defensive-minded player proudly even if he doesn't believe it tells the story of who he is and what he's capable of doing.

"I still think people know I put up decent numbers without playing a second on the [power play], but yeah, probably defensive guy is right, and it's fine," Hagelin said Monday. "I know what I'm made of and I know what I have done offensively in this League while playing a defensive role. I'm confident I can do a lot of damage offensively."

He's again using the Stanley Cup Playoffs as his proving ground.

Hockey Hall of Fame member Pronovost dies at 84

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 3:55 PM / News

NHL.com

Marcel Pronovost, a Hockey Hall of Fame member who won the Stanley Cup five times as a player and three times as a scout, died Sunday. He was 84 years old.

Pronovost had 345 points in 1,206 games in 21 seasons as a defenseman with the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs.

He won the Cup for the first time before he played a regular-season game. The Red Wings recalled him from their minor-league affiliate in Omaha during the 1950 Stanley Cup Playoffs to fill in when Red Kelly was moved from defense to forward to replace an injured Gordie Howe. Pronovost had one point in nine games as the Red Wings beat the Maple Leafs in the semifinals and the New York Rangers in the Cup Final.

Blackhawks' Versteeg could be scratched for Game 1

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 3:33 PM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2015 SCP Second Round

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- It appears Chicago Blackhawks forward Kris Versteeg will be the odd man out at the start of the Western Conference Second Round series against the Minnesota Wild.

Versteeg wore a white jersey Monday at the Blackhawks' practice facility and took line rushes outside the top four lines in Chicago's first practice since eliminating the Nashville Predators in the first round.

"I didn't mind him in the series," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said of Versteeg, who had one goal and averaged 15:34 while playing all six games. "I think we talk about attacking with speed [with Versteeg]."

Teuvo Teravainen, a 20-year-old rookie who was scratched the final four games against Nashville, skated in Versteeg's spot.

Rangers' Zuccarello out indefinitely, Klein set to return

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 2:00 PM / Rangers vs Capitals - 2015 SCP Second Round

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Rangers right wing Mats Zuccarello is being listed by the team as out indefinitely with an upper-body injury and is not expected to be ready to open the Eastern Conference Second Round series later this week against either the New York Islanders or Washington Capitals.

Zuccarello was hit in the left side of the head by defenseman Ryan McDonagh's slap shot late in the first period of Game 5 of the first-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins this past Friday. He left the game with 3:58 remaining in the first period and did not return.

"It's a tough play to watch for sure," McDonagh said. "You see him take it off the head, that's a scary play."

On the plus side, defenseman Kevin Klein said he is 100 percent and ready to play in Game 1 of the second round. Klein hasn't played since March 11 because of a broken left arm.

"It's been a while," Klein said. "When you're injured you're not really around the team as much as you'd like. You watch the guys out there battling. I just want to be out there and I can't wait to be."

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
