Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

This Western Conference First Round series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs is a dream matchup for fans of hockey analytics, and specifically the advanced puck possession statistics that are becoming more popular within the sport.

Whether it is Corsi, Fenwick or simply shots on goal, the Sharks and Kings are among the NHL leaders in all of them and in every even-strength situation.

Ramsay: Blues need to start fast against Blackhawks

Thursday, 04.17.2014 / 12:43 PM / Blues vs Blackhawks - 2014 SCP First Round

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks, 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 was most recently an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.

ST. LOUIS -- If the St. Louis Blues are going to forget about their season-ending six-game losing streak and start strong against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of their Western Conference First Round series Thursday (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS2, CSN-CH, FS-MW), Craig Ramsay said it has to start with the opening faceoff, literally.

Ramsay said the Blues need to get the puck early, get it deep, and get their cycle game going to gain confidence against Chicago.

"It's not just the centerman; it's the two wingers too," Ramsay told NHL.com. "Everyone [on St. Louis] is trying to win the first faceoff so they can get the puck and get it into the Chicago end. If they can do that, one of the things St. Louis is capable of doing very well is running cycles. They can get the puck in deep and they can keep it, and that's what they have to do against Chicago, make them go backwards and make them chase them around in the offensive zone.

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers, 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.

For Gord Murphy, the difference in the Eastern Conference First Round series between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers, which starts Thursday (7 p.m. ET, CNBC, TSN, RDS, CSN-PH, MSG), is goaltending, and how the Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist will be the biggest difference-maker.

"I can see it going seven games, and with New York's home-ice advantage and Lundqvist, that is the deciding factor," Murphy told NHL.com.

Brendan Lemieux living up to family name in Barrie

Thursday, 04.17.2014 / 3:00 AM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Brendan Lemieux is a regular chip off the old block.

The son of former NHL player and three-time Stanley Cup champion Claude Lemieux considers himself a playoff performer. In other words, he's a forward who can make the big play and score the big goal when needed.

Sound familiar? It should. Claude ended his career tied for third with Joe Sakic on the all-time NHL list with 19 game-winning goals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for three different teams.

Thursday, 04.17.2014 / 1:38 AM / Ducks vs Stars - 2014 SCP First Round

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Captain Ryan Getzlaf left Game 1 of the Anaheim Ducks' Western Conference First Round series against the Dallas Stars on Wednesday when he took a puck to the face with 16 seconds left in regulation.

His status was not immediately known, but coach Bruce Boudreau said after Anaheim's 4-3 victory that he doesn't think it is serious.

"I think he's going to be OK, but he's probably going to have a little nasty cut on the side of his mouth," Boudreau said. "As far as I know, nothing else is there. But I'll know more tomorrow."

Briere gives another vintage playoff performance

Thursday, 04.17.2014 / 12:45 AM / Lightning vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP First Round

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

TAMPA -- Daniel Briere did it again.

One of the top Stanley Cup Playoff performers of his generation, Briere was a constant threat in his first postseason game in a Montreal Canadiens uniform and set up an overtime goal by Dale Weise in a 5-4 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference First Round Series on Wednesday night.

The assist gave Briere 110 points in 109 career playoff games.

"I thought I had some chances where I could've closed the game," Briere said. "So you just have to stay focused. I had the feeling that something good was going to happen. Our line had too many scoring chances that at some point we were going to get a good result."
