New rules get varied reactions from players, coaches

LAS VEGAS -- The NHL's adoption of 3-on-3 overtime would appear to be tailor-made for a player such as Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson.

The new rules adopted by the NHL Board of Governors on Wednesday include a change to the faceoff protocol and the introduction of a coach's challenge as well as the new overtime format.

The speed and playmaking ability of the two-time Norris Trophy winner would figure to make Karlsson a dominant force under the new overtime rules, and it's logical to assume he would be excited to have the opportunity to show off his skills with all that open ice.

But that was not the case.

Goaltender Carey Price, who backstopped the Montreal Canadiens to their best regular season in 26 years, was an historic four-time winner at the 2015 NHL Awards, held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Price captured the Hart Memorial Trophy as the most valuable player to his team, the Ted Lindsay Award for most outstanding player as selected by NHL players and the Vezina Trophy as the League's top goaltender. He also accepted a previously-won honor, the statistics-based William M. Jennings Trophy as the goaltender (min. 25 GP) on the club allowing the fewest regular-season goals. Price and Chicago's Corey Crawford are the 2014-15 winners, as the Canadiens and Blackhawks both allowed a League-low 189 goals.

Price is the first goaltender ever to sweep these four awards in the same season.
