Val d'Or tops Edmonton in double OT at Memorial Cup

Tuesday, 05.20.2014 / 11:20 PM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Center Anthony Richard scored off a breakaway 1:15 into the second overtime to give the Val-d'Or Foreurs a 4-3 victory against the Edmonton Oil Kings in round-robin play of the Memorial Cup on Tuesday night at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario.

Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Antoine Bibeau made 47 saves for Val-d'Or and Oil Kings goalie Tristan Jarry (Pittsburgh Penguins) stopped 29 shots.

In attendance was Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis, who had to be pleased with the effort by Bibeau, a 2013 sixth-round pick (No. 172).

Richard scored his unassisted goal after picking up a loose puck in the neutral zone and speeding into the zone before delivering his first goal of the tournament through the five-hole. Richard shielded the puck from Edmonton defenseman Ashton Sautner, who was closing in fast from behind. It marked Val-d'Or's first lead of the game; the team rallied from 2-0 and 3-2 deficits.

It was the sixth time in Memorial Cup history that a game entered double overtime.

Kings' Williams possesses more than Game 7 goals

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

CHICAGO -- Justin Williams is so well-known for something around the NHL he's earned a nickname for it.

"Mr. Game 7" scored the first goal for the Los Angeles Kings and helped set up another when they defeated the Anaheim Ducks in the winner-take-all finale of their Western Conference Second Round series. The designation is well-earned. Williams is 6-0 in Stanley Cup Playoff Game 7s, with six goals and 12 points.

When it's not a Game 7, Williams doesn't earn nearly the same level of attention. He fades off the marquee for the Kings and becomes one of the great role players they have assembled around stars Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty and Jonathan Quick.

Maybe it shouldn't be that way.

Williams is one of the best in the League at winning battles for the puck along the boards, and that makes him an incredibly valuable player.

Canada finishes atop group at Worlds; U.S. also wins

Tuesday, 05.20.2014 / 5:26 PM / News

NHL.com

Washington Capitals right wing Joel Ward scored his second power-play goal with 9:17 remaining in the third period to help rally Canada to a 3-2 victory against Norway in the final game of preliminary-round action at the 2014 IIHF World Championship at Chizhovka Arena in Belarus on Tuesday.

The victory enabled Canada (6-1, 18 points) to claim the top seed in the eight-team Group A field. Canada will face Finland in the quarterfinals on Thursday. The win also assures Canada will not have to face unbeaten Russia unless both teams advance to the gold-medal game on Sunday.

Canada, which outshot the Norwegians 42-16, also received a goal by Mark Scheifele (Winnipeg Jets), and James Reimer (Toronto Maple Leafs) made 14 saves.

"It was a long game but we weren't down and out or anything," Ward told the IIHF website. "We felt good about ourselves. We had a lot of chances, a lot of shots. We had some power plays. We just got to capitalize on special teams."

Blackhawks-Kings could turn on battle of top lines

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- It's one of those matchups that should be watched closely throughout the Western Conference Final between the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings.

Chicago leads the best-of-7 series 1-0 heading into Game 2 on Wednesday at United Center (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS), and a big reason is the matchup between the Blackhawks' top line and the Kings' first unit.

With right wing Marian Hossa's two assists in Game 1, including one on a big goal late in the third period by center Jonathan Toews, Chicago's top forwards led the way up front.

"They're a great line," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said after practice Tuesday. "Jonathan Toews … he is the best two-way player in the National Hockey League. Hossa is right there next in terms of wingers. That's for sure."

Former Sabres star Satan announces retirement

Tuesday, 05.20.2014 / 4:12 PM / News

NHL.com

Slovakian right wing Miroslav Satan, a Stanley Cup champion and two-time NHL All-Star, has announced his retirement from hockey.

Satan, 39, made the announcement Tuesday after his final game for Slovakia, a 4-3 victory against Denmark in the preliminary round of the 2014 IIHF World Championship in Minsk, Belarus. He finished the tournament with one goal, three points and a plus-1 rating averaging 20:10 of ice time.

"I hardly believe it, but I am not going to change my word. I am convinced that this is the right decision (to quit)," Satan told reporters in Minsk. "My daughter (Victoria) asks me every day, when I will be finally back at home. And (if I continued), I would only foil the average age of the team (Slovakia) that seems to be on the right track."

Canadiens see 2-0 hole as just another rallying point

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- As the final buzzer sounded at Bell Centre on Monday, ensuring the Montreal Canadiens were down 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Final to the New York Rangers, P.K. Subban allowed himself to show a touch of frustration.

The Canadiens defenseman spent 5:02 of the final 6:03 of the game on the ice, trying desperately to beat Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist on a night he looked superhuman.

Subban must have been exhausted, and perhaps the gravity of the situation hit him, and he reacted.

He shot the puck around the boards, and skated off the ice.

That's it.

By the time the Canadiens dressing room was open to the media following their 3-1 loss in Game 2, Subban not only had lost that frustration, it was replaced by confidence.

Heading into Game 3 on Thursday in New York (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS), Subban felt enormously positive about where the Canadiens stood in the series.

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw, making his first public comments since sustaining a lower-body injury in Game 1 of the Western Conference Second Round, opened his press conference with a simple question.

"Did you guys miss me?" Shaw said minutes after taking part in his first full practice since getting injured against the Minnesota Wild on May 2.

The answer, it seems, is a universal yes.

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
