Bettman: NHL enjoying one of its best seasons

Wednesday, 06.04.2014 / 8:38 PM / Stanley Cup Playoffs

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Noting the NHL's theme that the 2013-14 season is like no other, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday the League is nearing the completion of its best season.

"By almost any measure, this may have been the most successful season on and off the ice in League history," Commissioner Bettman said during his press conference prior to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center.

"There has been a lot written, discussed and debated about the road we took to get to this point, where we are today, but I'm always one to look forward. Our objective was, and always is, to make a great game even greater, to give our fans the best sports experience and entertainment possible and the best opportunities to connect with our game. The 2013-14 campaign accomplished that objective."

The Detroit Red Wings and Grand Rapids coach Jeff Blashill agreed to a three-year contract, which will run through the 2016-17 season, the NHL team announced Wednesday.

Blashill had one year left on his contract. Detroit general manager Ken Holland said he denied permission to NHL teams to speak to the 40-year-old about coaching vacancies, the Red Wings website reported.

"He's a very important person in our organization because we are in the process of trying to transition to some of the younger players that we have," Holland said. "... We are thrilled with the job that he has done from a competitive standpoint, from a development standpoint. ...

"I think his feeling is that he can use another year or two, certainly one more year, to continue developing as a coach, and we'll see what happens next summer."

Curtis Zupke - Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- After the Los Angeles Kings lost Game 6 of the Western Conference Final to the Chicago Blackhawks, Kings coach Darryl Sutter was asked what he said to his team.

"Fly at 11 [a.m.]," Sutter deadpanned.

Kings swarm, suffocate without the puck

Tuesday, 06.03.2014 / 11:11 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Corey Masisak - Staff Writer

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings have allowed the fewest goals in the NHL since the start of the 2011-12 season because of a roster filled with defensively-sound players that successfully execute coach Darryl Sutter's system.

And they do it by trying not to play defense.

The Kings prevent goals by not letting teams have the puck in the offensive zone. Other defense-oriented teams try to do the same, but typically take a more passive approach.

Los Angeles doesn't just want opposing teams to give up the puck. The Kings want to take it off them.
