Gorges expecting return to Canadiens lineup

Monday, 04.07.2014 / 1:59 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges took part in his first full practice with his teammates Monday since breaking his hand and said afterward he expects to be in uniform Wednesday when the Canadiens face the Chicago Blackhawks on the road.

"We'll have to get final word from the doctor," Gorges said, "but as far as I know I'm cleared and ready to go."

Gorges has missed the past 15 games with a broken left hand, the result of blocking a Mason Raymond slap shot in a 4-3 overtime win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 1. Gorges played two more games with the injury before he and the team decided surgery was the best course of action.

Avalanche's Roy deserves Jack Adams Award

Monday, 04.07.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

With the 2013-14 regular season rapidly coming to a close, NHL.com looks at some of its biggest storylines and award contenders.

After finishing with the second-fewest points in the NHL in 2012-13, the Colorado Avalanche experienced major changes in the front office and, ultimately, behind the bench last summer.

Two of the greatest players in the history of the franchise were placed in roles that would help change the culture. Joe Sakic, the former captain and all-time leading scorer, was named executive vice president of hockey operations last May.

Less than two weeks later, Sakic named Patrick Roy, the former goaltender who led them to two Stanley Cup championships, as the sixth coach in Avalanche history. He replaced Joe Sacco after the Avalanche missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs for a third straight season.

Playoff Countdown: Questions abound in final week

Monday, 04.07.2014 / 12:35 AM / Drive to the Playoffs

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

The conclusion to 2013-14 NHL regular season is fast approaching. After game play Sunday, the League is down to 55 games remaining on the schedule, with three to be played Monday. Yet, much remains to be decided in the frantic run to the finish line, including playoff qualification, playoff positioning and numerous individual accomplishments and milestones. To celebrate the seven-day countdown to the end of the season April 13 and the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on April 16, NHL.com will provide a piece of playoff-related content each day.

The 2013-14 regular season ends Sunday, but there are still plenty of questions that need answers in the final week of games before the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on April 16.

We know the Boston Bruins are the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, but the St. Louis Blues have not secured that spot in the West. The Anaheim Ducks, who led the Pacific Division for much of the season, could still finish second in the division and be faced with the task of playing their heated rival, the Los Angeles Kings, in the first round.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, who were in prime position to make the playoffs for much of the season, are in serious danger of seeing their season end Saturday night.

Here are seven questions to be answered in the final week of the regular season:

Daily Primer April 7: Devils out for key points

Monday, 04.07.2014 / 12:02 AM / Drive to the Playoffs

The New Jersey Devils were hoping the New York Islanders could do them a favor and knock off the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday, but they had no such luck. Instead, the Devils woke up Monday morning three points behind the Blue Jackets for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference in the Stanley Cup Playoff race.

New Jersey (34-28-16) will play the first of its four remaining games Monday night when it hosts the Calgary Flames at Prudential Center. A victory would pull the Devils back within a point of the Blue Jackets, who are idle. New Jersey has won back-to-back games and has earned points in eight of its past 10 (5-2-3).

The Minnesota Wild (40-26-12) continues its pursuit of the first wild-card spot in the Western Conference against the Winnipeg Jets at MTS Centre. Wild goalie Ilya Bryzgalov is expected to get the start Monday; he is 5-0-3 with a 1.87 goals-against average since joining Minnesota prior to the NHL Trade Deadline.

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
