Ovechkin to be 'completely healthy' by camp: Capitals

Monday, 05.19.2014 / 7:55 PM / News

NHL.com

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin did not sustain any torn ligaments in his right knee when he was injured Sunday while playing for Russia at the 2014 IIHF World Championship.

Andrei Safronov, Russia's general manager, told reporters in Belarus on Monday that an MRI showed Ovechkin's injury is not as severe as initially feared.

"He's OK at the moment," Safronov said. "There's some pain, but he's working with the doctors."

Carter, Gaborik flourish again after trades to Kings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

CHICAGO -- Jeff Carter was going to be a member of the Philadelphia Flyers for all, or close to all, of his NHL career, and he had the legal document with his signature on it to prove it.

Carter signed an 11-year contract with the Flyers in November 2010 that would have kept him in Philadelphia until after his 37th birthday. He didn't make it to 27 with the Flyers, and a few months after celebrating that birthday, Carter was traded for a second time.

He landed with the Los Angeles Kings just before the NHL Trade Deadline in 2012 after a layover with the Columbus Blue Jackets. After being one of the top young stars in the NHL, Carter's reputation had been slighted upon his exit from Philadelphia and after he was unable to produce to expectations in central Ohio.

Carter became a great addition for the Kings. He added a scoring spark and helped balance out the forward lines. Los Angeles won the Stanley Cup a few months later.

Marian Gaborik joined the Kings just before the trade deadline this season in nearly an identical situation. He's a little older than Carter was, but Gaborik was once one of the League's elite goal-scorers and he had just been traded by two teams in less than a calendar year when he arrived in Los Angeles, from the Blue Jackets no less.

Canadiens must choose between Budaj, Tokarski

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The Montreal Canadiens have been in this situation before, except the stakes were not nearly as high.

Carey Price returned from representing Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics with a gold medal around his neck as well as a lower-body injury.

The Canadiens said at the time that Price aggravated a previous injury at the Olympics and that his absence would not last very long.

It wound up being two weeks.

In Price's absence, Peter Budaj was called upon to carry the load during a very difficult stretch of eight games; six of the opponents qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs this season.

Budaj started seven of those eight games and won two, neither in regulation, and put up a 3.51 goals-against average and .868 save percentage.

Ducks re-evaluating after stinging end to season

Monday, 05.19.2014 / 5:42 PM / NHL Insider

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- It's much too early for Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray to fully dissect what went wrong with his team in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, specifically a Game 7 that is already being talked about as the worst loss in franchise history.

Anaheim caved under the pressure and succumbed to the rival Los Angeles Kings 6-2 in Game 7 of the Western Conference Second Round series in a building in which it had started the season 20-0-2. Murray talked Monday on the team's exit meetings day, and the game still haunted him.

"When you sit and watch, after the all years in this business, you worry the night before that your team may be too nervous, too apprehensive," Murray said. "There's all sorts of things that go through your mind, and they're your worst nightmare. But it's something you have to take and move on from. You've got to learn from that. We're at that point where we can't allow this to happen. We've got to move forward."

Ottawa Senators center Stephane Da Costa had two goals and two assists during a four-goal third period to lead France to a 6-2 victory against Denmark in preliminary-round play of the 2014 IIHF World Championship at Chizhovka Arena in Belarus.

The victory enabled France to advance to the quarterfinal round of the World Championship for the first time since 1995. Left wing Antoine Roussel (Dallas Stars) had a goal and three assists, and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare had a goal and two assists in the win.

"This is huge for French hockey," France coach Dave Henderson told the IIHF website. "It's been a long time since it last happened. I'm totally happy with the team."

Ducks GM Murray signs four-year contract extension

Monday, 05.19.2014 / 4:04 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray signed a four-year contract extension with the team Monday that keeps him with the organization through 2020.

Murray said the negotiations with Anaheim Chief Executive Officer Michael Schulman and owners Henry and Susan Samueli began around the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Despite Anaheim's elimination by the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Second Round, the organization has trended upward with its prospects and positioned itself well in the salary cap era since it won the Stanley Cup in 2007.

"The one major thought, first of all, [is that] my wife and family like it here and we love the ownership," Murray said. "And we've spent time since the last Cup rebuilding this, basically. So you want to see it through. That had a lot to staying here and going forward that way. I want to see this through and see where we can take this."

Blackhawks' Crawford focused solely on the present

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

CHICAGO -- Goaltender Corey Crawford has learned the fine art of forgetting about the past. As a result, his present and future have been infinitely more enjoyable.

"I approach every next game [like] that's always the most important," Crawford said minutes after playing a starring role in the Chicago Blackhawks' Western Conference Final opening-game victory against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. "Game 2 is now the most important. I'm going to rest up now and prepare for that."

With more than 72 hours between the end of Game 1 and the start of Game 2 here at United Center on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS), Crawford will have a lot of time to think about the recent run he has put together.

Blues sign Elliott to extension, Miller not returning

Monday, 05.19.2014 / 3:11 PM / News

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues paid a hefty price when they acquired goaltender Ryan Miller from the Buffalo Sabres in February.

But after an unsuccessful run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs that ended in a disappointing loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference First Round, the Blues are moving away from Miller and again turning to a familiar face.

The team announced Monday that it resigned goalie Brian Elliott to a three-year, $7.5 million extension and will team Elliott with incumbent Jake Allen for the 2014-15 season, meaning Miller will become an unrestricted free agent in July.

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.
