Wednesday, 05.28.2014 / 5:00 PM / News


The St. Louis Blues on Wednesday signed veteran forward Joakim Lindstrom to a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jeremy Rutherford reports it's a one-way, $700,000 contract.

Lindstrom has spent parts of the past three seasons with Skelleftea AIK of the Swedish Hockey League, and in 55 games this season he had 23 goals and 63 points. He also had a team-high 11 points in nine games for Sweden at the 2014 IIHF World Championship.


Manufacturing desperation problematic for Rangers

MONTREAL -- The New York Rangers may have found the desperation they needed by seeing what happens when they don’t have it.

The Rangers departed for home Wednesday a day after squandering their first of up to three opportunities to advance to the Stanley Cup Final with a 7-4 loss in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Rangers still lead the best-of-7 series 3-2, and if they want to avoid wasting their second chance to close it out, in Game 6 on Thursday at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS), they will need to find a way to manufacture some of the desperation the Canadiens had Tuesday.

Canadiens enjoy Bourque's strong playoff showing

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The difference between Rene Bourque's play for the Montreal Canadiens during the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs has been astounding.

Montreal coach Michel Therrien is enjoying Bourque's recent results and not concerned about explaining how the left wing's startlingly increased production has come about.

"Before solving Bourque's mystery, I'll let him play a bit more because he's on a roll," Therrien said Wednesday after the Canadiens held an optional practice at their suburban practice facility.

Bourque scored twice Tuesday to complete a hat trick after Montreal blew a 4-1 lead against the New York Rangers. The Canadiens won 7-4 in Game 5 at Bell Centre to stave off elimination for the third time in the playoffs.


Richards gets 'well-deserved' deal from Blue Jackets

Wednesday, 05.28.2014 / 2:46 PM / News


The Columbus Blue Jackets took a key step forward this season, winning the first Stanley Cup Playoff games in their history and seeing the development of several prospects.

It turned out to be more than enough to convince general manager Jarmo Kekalainen he had the right coach in place, leading to the signing of Todd Richards to a two-year contract extension on Tuesday. Richards now is under contract through the 2016-17 season.

"This was something that we felt was well-deserved, earned," Kekalainen said during a press conference Wednesday. "I give a lot of credit to our coaching staff, and obviously the head coach, for the way our team prepares for every game, the way our team plays, the identity that we've established around the League. The discipline, the heart and passion and desire our guys show on the ice, it comes from the preparation our coaches put our team through every day."


Jagr, Hasek disagree on criticism of Czech team

Wednesday, 05.28.2014 / 1:49 PM / News

Michael Langr - NHL.com Correspondent

In the wake of the Czech Republic's loss in the bronze-medal game of the 2014 IIHF World Championship in Minsk, two of that country's biggest hockey stars, Jaromir Jagr and Dominik Hasek, have engaged in a war of words.

Jagr, who played on the team which lost to Sweden 3-0, and Hasek, the goalie who backstopped the country to gold at the 1998 Winter Olympics, were teammates in the national team setup for years. But they are on differing ends of a the spectrum about the debate gripping the country at the moment, which centers around the criticism the national team's players are facing in the face of the disappointment this weekend.

Jagr, who plays for the New Jersey Devils, was angered by the attacks on the team by fans and the media.


Top prospects out to make names for themselves

TORONTO -- Swedish forward William Nylander, a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft, knows how lucky he is to have a wealth of hockey information and advice at his fingertips 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Not only did his father, Michael Nylander, play 920 NHL games with seven teams in 15 seasons, but the younger Nylander also was given an opportunity to skate alongside his father with Rogle in Sweden's second division this season.

William had four goals and eight points in 18 games with his father before moving to Modo in the Swedish Hockey League. The elder Nylander had three goals and nine points in 25 games with Rogle this season.


Bourque's hat trick helps Canadiens force Game 6

Wednesday, 05.28.2014 / 1:57 AM / Canadiens vs Rangers - 2014 Eastern Conference Final

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- To say Montreal Canadiens forward Rene Bourque had a difficult regular season would be putting things mildly.

Bourque was a lightning rod for criticism all season, hitting a new career-low for a full season with nine goals in 63 games. Coach Michel Therrien finally had enough in March, making Bourque a healthy scratch for six of the final 16 games of the regular season.

It would have been impossible to imagine entering the Stanley Cup Playoffs that Bourque would be a difference-maker for the Canadiens, but that is exactly what he has become.

For the first time since he came to the Canadiens in a trade with the Calgary Flames in 2012, Bourque has been a physical force, using his big body to create space for linemates and finding the finish that got him 27 goals in back-to-back seasons with Calgary.


Tokarski's save, Bourque's goal rescued Canadiens

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens' three-goal lead was gone, wiped out by the New York Rangers in a span of 4:24 in the second period of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final. Goalie Dustin Tokarski could have been reeling and questioning himself, except he didn't have time.

Less than 50 seconds after Rangers forward Chris Kreider scored the game-tying goal, there was forward Brian Boyle charging down the left side, hoping linemate Derek Dorsett would gain enough speed to make it a 2-on-1 on Canadiens defenseman Francis Bouillon.

Dorsett didn't quite get there, but Boyle had an angle, so he blasted a shot from the left circle. Tokarski made the save, directing the puck into the corner. Bouillon got to it first, chipped it up and started a rush that that led to Rene Bourque's game-winning goal.


Rangers' John Moore to meet with Player Safety

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

MONTREAL -- New York Rangers defenseman John Moore has a hearing scheduled Wednesday with the NHL Department of Player Safety for an illegal check to the head of Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise in the third period of Eastern Conference Final Game 5 on Tuesday.

Moore received a match penalty at 10:41 of the third for his hit that knocked off Weise's helmet. A match penalty carries an automatic suspension from further competition until Commissioner Gary Bettman rules on the issue, according to Rule 21 of the NHL Rulebook.

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
