Forward Pierre-Édouard Bellemare, who stars in the Swedish Hockey League for Skelleftea, scored in the third round of a shootout Friday to give France a stunning 3-2 victory against Canada in preliminary-round action of the 2014 IIHF World Championship at Chizhovka Arena in Belarus.

The victory was the second by France against Canada at the World Championship dating back to 1931; the French previously defeated Canada 4-1 in April 1995. The Canadians, who defeated France 9-1 at the 2011 WC and 7-2 in 2012, fall to 8-2 all-time against France.

"You look at that team after they won that game, that's like winning a Stanley Cup for them," Canada coach Dave Tippett told The Canadian Press.

Friday, 05.09.2014 / 2:06 PM / Bruins vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP Second Round

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The inability of Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais to make an offensive impact in the Stanley Cup Playoffs is beginning to wear on Montreal Canadiens coach Michel Therrien.

Friday, a day after the Canadiens' 1-0 loss at home to the Boston Bruins in Game 4 that tied their best-of-7 Eastern Conference Second Round series 2-2, Therrien was asked about his top two offensive players all season.

His answer, while not directly naming them, was revealing.

Murphy: Penguins' speed presents Rangers problems

Friday, 05.09.2014 / 2:01 PM / Penguins vs Rangers - 2014 SCP Second Round

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins, NHL.com has enlisted the help of former NHL assistant coach Gord Murphy to break down the action. Murphy will be checking in throughout the series.

Murphy enjoyed a 14-season career as an NHL defenseman before spending seven seasons as an assistant coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets and most recently serving as an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.

After watching four games of the Eastern Conference Second Round series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers, longtime NHL assistant coach Gord Murphy says the most impressive part of the series has been how the Penguins have used speed to their advantage against a Rangers team that is starting to look fatigued.

Penguins' success begins in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton

Friday, 05.09.2014 / 1:31 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

Between the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League and their NHL affiliate in Pittsburgh, much more is shared than simply a synonymous mascot. The success of the Pittsburgh Penguins and their partners in Northeastern Pennsylvania has been actively intertwined since their affiliation began in 1999.

"The way we view it, it's really one team," said John Hynes, the AHL's 2011 Coach of the Year who is in his fourth season at the helm for Wilkes-Barre. "Between the management and coaches, we're on the same page as far as how we like to run the two teams and the values we want to have within our locker room."

It's a sense of unity that resonates across the board. Through the years, Pittsburgh has looked to Wilkes-Barre for the development of players such as goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, defensemen Kris Letang, Alex Goligoski, Ben Lovejoy, Rob Scuderi, Michal Rozsival and Brooks Orpik and forwards Mark Letestu and Maxime Talbot.

'Understated' Martin stalwart of Penguins defense

Friday, 05.09.2014 / 12:47 PM / Penguins vs Rangers - 2014 SCP Second Round

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Paul Martin is quiet.

On and off the ice, Martin does not command attention in the same way as Penguins forwards Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, or even fellow defenseman Kris Letang. But he has possibly been Pittsburgh's most consistent performer entering Game 5 of its Eastern Conference Second Round series against the New York Rangers at Consol Energy Center on Friday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

"Paul's play is understated at best," Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said. "He's not dynamic, not attention-grabbing, but he's been every bit of a shutdown guy for our team in every situation, playing against other teams' top guys, and he's done really an outstanding job for us throughout these playoffs."

Top 2015 prospect McDavid selected in KHL draft

Friday, 05.09.2014 / 9:34 AM / News

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Erie Otters center Connor McDavid, who many project to be the No. 1 pick at the 2015 NHL Draft in Florida, was selected by Medvescak Zagreb in the second round (No. 77) of the Kontinental Hockey League draft Thursday.

Zagreb will hold McDavid's KHL rights, but that likely won't matter since the 17-year-old prodigy is expected to suit up for an NHL team in 2015-16 right out of training camp.

Ducks forward Selanne hasn't lost scoring touch

Friday, 05.09.2014 / 3:10 AM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2014 SCP Second Round

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

LOS ANGELES -- As Teemu Selanne leaned against the wall adjoined to his stall in the visiting dressing room at Staples Center, one media member asked him if he is appreciating the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs more because his career is "winding down."

Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf walked past and shouted, "Just winding up, T!"

The guy who goes by "T" in the Anaheim locker room might still be committed to his retirement plan, but at age 43, Selanne is proving he's not quite ready to be done playing hockey just yet.

Selanne scored the go-ahead goal for the Ducks against the Los Angeles Kings in a 3-2 victory Thursday at Staples Center in this Western Conference Second Round Series. He has two goals in this series, which resumes Saturday (9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS), and four points in his past four games.

Ducks' Boudreau fondly recalls time in Kings system

Friday, 05.09.2014 / 3:00 AM / Ducks vs. Kings - 2014 SCP Second Round

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Hockey coaches are acutely aware of time because their routine is based on practices, meetings and various times for puck drop. The clock seems to find Bruce Boudreau more often than other coaches, though.

More than usual, when Boudreau glances at the clock, it happens to be 9:11 p.m. or 9:11 a.m., and it triggers him back to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. He was coaching the Manchester Monarchs, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings, and he lost friends Garnet “Ace” Bailey and Mark Bavis, scouts in the organization.

“The one thing I noticed is that, when I look at the time, it’s 9:11 more than I ever noticed before,” Boudreau said. “It seems like it comes up an awful lot more than it doesn’t.”

Hiller comes up big again in relief for Ducks

Friday, 05.09.2014 / 2:43 AM / Ducks vs. Kings - 2014 SCP Second Round

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

LOS ANGELES -- If there were a hockey equivalent of the Rolaids Relief Man Award, Jonas Hiller would have a pretty strong case to win it.

Frederik Andersen was a surprise starter in goal for the Anaheim Ducks in Game 3 of this Western Conference Second Round series -- but for the second time in four games, Hiller earned a victory in relief. Andersen was injured midway through the third period Thursday and Hiller stopped seven of eight shots in Anaheim's 3-2 win against the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.

— Montreal Canadiens forward Tim Bozon on playing for the first time since his life-threaning illness
