Wild expect goaltender Harding back for camp

Saturday, 06.07.2014 / 5:35 PM / News

NHL.com

Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding is expected to be healthy and ready to play in time for training camp, general manager Chuck Fletcher said Friday.

Harding left the Wild on Dec. 31 to deal with symptoms related to his multiple sclerosis. Before his illness forced him from the lineup, Harding was enjoying a breakout season, going 18-7-3 with a 1.65 goals-against average and .933 save percentage. After missing several weeks, Harding skated with the Wild during the Stanley Cup Playoffs but never made it back into the lineup before Minnesota was eliminated in the Western Conference Second Round.

"I think his battles are well chronicled and well known. I think he's feeling well at this point in time," Fletcher said. "The goal for him is, much like last summer, to build up and get to a point where he'll be able to come into training camp and play well. There's been nothing that I've heard of to lead me to not believe that to be the case."

Penguins GM: Crosby 'just fine,' Fleury 'very good'

Saturday, 06.07.2014 / 5:16 PM / News

NHL.com

New Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford expects Sidney Crosby will be "just fine" in the Stanley Cup Playoffs next year.

Rutherford, named Friday as the replacement for Ray Shero, addressed Crosby, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and defenseman Kris Letang in an interview with 93.7 The Fan.

Crosby had one goal and eight assists in 13 playoff games before the Penguins were eliminated by the New York Rangers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round after holding a 3-1 lead in that series. Crosby did not have a point in the final three losses.

"Well, the obvious, he didn't have the production that he usually does," Rutherford told the "Starkey and Mueller" show Friday. "But as we know in sports, different times, different games, different series, things change and players don't perform the same way year after year."

Flames asking Panthers about No. 1 pick in Draft

Saturday, 06.07.2014 / 1:59 PM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

NHL.com

One month after Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon admitted he was openly fielding offers for the top pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, at least one team has inquired into the cost of selecting first on June 27 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving revealed Friday he has been in touch with Tallon about acquiring Florida's pick.

The Flames have the fourth pick in the first round.

"Now is the time that all of those conversations are happening," Treliving said. "We're going to keep pounding away and try to get a sense of what other teams are thinking. For the most part, teams have gotten through their meetings. They've done their preparation for the draft. The talk between managers is increasing. We'll see where it goes."

Kings forward Trevor Lewis recalls his path to NHL

Friday, 06.06.2014 / 9:14 PM / Player's Blog with the Kings' Trevor Lewis

Trevor Lewis - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis will be blogging for NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final, offering his insight on what is happening inside the walls of his team's locker room and within the confines of the rink.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, and so I guess I had what might be considered a non-traditional path to the NHL.

My dad and his family were Canadian and he played hockey growing up. We also lived across the street from an ice rink in Salt Lake City, so when I was 2 years old, he took me over and I started learning to skate.

I just loved it. I played every sport growing up, but it always seemed like hockey was my favorite. I always seemed to gravitate toward hockey.

Dorsett glad for two-day break in Stanley Cup Final

Friday, 06.06.2014 / 8:48 PM / Player's Blog with the Rangers' Derek Dorsett

Derek Dorsett - Special to NHL.com

LOS ANGELES -- The two days off between games gave us a chance to unwind yesterday away from the rink and everything.

Earlier this season we stayed down at a great little hotel in Santa Monica, and after the game the other night we went down there again. It's a beautiful hotel, right on the beach, on the water. There's a lot of stuff you can do during a day off. It was good for us.

I went for a bike ride, then I had lunch and went and chilled out in my hotel room to watch some shows.

It was relaxing. It's nice to soak in the sun and just disconnect from the game for a little while.

Pearn: Kings must contend with Rangers' speed

Friday, 06.06.2014 / 8:33 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Final between the New York Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings, NHL.com has enlisted the help of former NHL coach Perry Pearn to break down the action. Pearn will be checking in throughout the series.

Pearn has spent the past 18 seasons as an assistant coach in the NHL with the Winnipeg Jets, Ottawa Senators, New York Rangers, Montreal Canadiens and a second tenure with the Jets in 2012-13 and 2013-14.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Kings did not play up to the standard they've set during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs for much of Game 1 of the Final against the New York Rangers, but they did take a 1-0 series lead.

After a sloppy first period and a so-so second, the Kings were much stronger in the third before winning 3-2 in overtime. Game 2 is Saturday at Staples Center (7 p.m.; NBC, CBC, RDS), and there will be a couple of things Los Angeles will be trying to clean up.

Rangers like Nash's play but still seek some goals

Friday, 06.06.2014 / 8:27 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- The Rick Nash story in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs has reached the point where expectations for the New York Rangers forward have changed.

Once considered an elite goal-scorer and the player who had to ignite the Rangers' offense, Nash is being held to a different standard in the playoffs, at least based on public comments made by his teammates and coach Alain Vigneault.

Now Nash is supposed to be an all-around, 200-foot player who doesn't need to score to be effective.

It's not clear if this change is a good thing or a bad thing for the Rangers, who trail 1-0 heading into Game 2 of the best-of-7 Stanley Cup Final against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

Defensive depth has Kings in sight of another Cup

Friday, 06.06.2014 / 7:57 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- On April 26, defenseman Jeff Schultz was playing at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire, in front of a little less than 8,000 people in the American Hockey League's Calder Cup Playoffs.

A little more than a week later, he played nearly 20 minutes for the Los Angeles Kings in Game 2 of the Western Conference Second Round against the Anaheim Ducks. He continued to play for six more games with the eventual champions of the West.

There have been plenty of words written and said extolling the virtues of Kings rookie forwards Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli and how their line with Jeff Carter has helped Los Angeles evolve into a potential Stanley Cup champion.

But this long, incredible run might not have been possible without the team's depth on defense. The Kings lost their two most experienced defensemen, Willie Mitchell and Robyn Regehr, to injury, but the rest of the corps behind superstar Drew Doughty helped Los Angeles survive.

I'm sure [my father] was going crazy up there. I hope all of my friends were celebrating in the crowd. Coming back here and all of my friends and family are here, getting a goal in front of them is special.
