NEW YORK – The National Hockey League was awarded three of the most prestigious honors tonight at the 2014 Sports Business Awards, winning "Sports League of the Year," "Sports Executive of the Year" recognition for Commissioner Gary Bettman and "Sports Event of the Year" for the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic. The annual event, hosted by The SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily, honors excellence in sports business for the period from March 1, 2013 - February 28, 2014.

Ramsay: Rangers rolling using all four lines

Wednesday, 05.21.2014 / 6:04 PM / Canadiens vs Rangers - 2014 Eastern Conference Final

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.

Craig Ramsay doesn't hide his affinity for four-line hockey.

"I'm a huge believer in it," Ramsay told NHL.com.

What coach isn't? They love the ability to roll four lines, to rest their star forwards, and to watch their fourth-liners grind away minutes and eat away at the opposition's confidence.

Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien had that working in 2011, when they won the Stanley Cup against the Vancouver Canucks, who were coached by Alain Vigneault.

Vigneault now has the New York Rangers thriving with a four-line brand of hockey. They're two wins away from reaching the Stanley Cup Final.

Timing back, Rangers' McDonagh finding elite level

Wednesday, 05.21.2014 / 4:44 PM / Canadiens vs Rangers - 2014 Eastern Conference Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers center Derek Stepan can't help but smile and even laugh as he witnesses the recognition defenseman Ryan McDonagh is starting to receive from the media during the Eastern Conference Final.

Stepan knows why it's coming in droves now: McDonagh's six points against the Montreal Canadiens and eight in his past five Stanley Cup Playoff games (all wins), is a giveaway.

"It's well-deserved," Stepan said.

Canadiens could sit struggling Vanek for Game 3

Wednesday, 05.21.2014 / 4:00 PM / Canadiens vs Rangers - 2014 Eastern Conference Final

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens coach Michel Therrien warned not to read too much into it, but he put struggling forward Thomas Vanek in a fourth-line rotation at practice Wednesday.

Vanek was rotating with rookie Michael Bournival on right wing of a line with Brandon Prust and Daniel Briere, meaning there is a possibility Vanek will be scratched for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final in New York on Thursday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

Vanek is tied for the Canadiens lead with five goals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but he has scored in three of his 13 games and failed to register a shot on goal three times, including the 3-1 loss in Game 2 on Monday.

Therrien would not confirm anything and for a second day in row refused to criticize Vanek's play.

"We're in the conference final," Therrien said. "To get here, we needed contributions from everyone. Every player who's played since the start of the playoffs has contributed in some way. That's important in my eyes."
