Stars' Fiddler gets unique 'hat trick' at concert

Wednesday, 06.11.2014 / 4:32 PM / NHL Insider

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

Dallas Stars forward Vernon Fiddler has a single three-goal game to his credit, scored on Nov. 12, 2010 as a member of the Phoenix Coyotes. But at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on June 7, the veteran center came away with a whole other kind of hat trick.

Attending the latest stop on country singer George Strait's "Cowboy Rides Away" tour, Fiddler was in the right place at the right time when the legendary musician flung his cowboy hat into the crowd as the concert ended. Fiddler barely had to move as the iconic piece of country memorabilia came right to him.

"At the end, he comes out for his encore and my buddy said, 'You're going to catch this hat, watch.' I looked at him and thought, 'What are you talking about?'" Fiddler told NHL.com. "[Strait] walked off the stage and it looked he wasn't going to even throw his hat. He came back on stage and said, 'I forgot. Somebody might want this.' He chucked it and it boomeranged around four or five rows away from me and then came back and landed right on my lap."

Dorsett: Rangers focused on winning one game

Wednesday, 06.11.2014 / 11:59 AM / Player's Blog with the Rangers' Derek Dorsett

Derek Dorsett - Special to NHL.com

New York Rangers forward Derek Dorsett 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.

NEW YORK -- The last couple of days have been frustrating around here, as you could imagine. We had some down time and I've done a lot of thinking. Obviously no one is happy. The mood hasn't been very good.

When you're in the Stanley Cup Final and you're down 3-0 it's hard to turn your mind off from it. There are a lot of sleepless nights, tossing and turning.

It was real quiet around here yesterday. We had a team meeting and some things were said. Guys did a lot of thinking. I don't know if it was soul-searching, but searching for something. Today it seems like guys are energized and ready to bring our best game to try to get a win to stay alive.

And that's all we can do -- worry about one game. We can't look further. We have to put our best effort in front of us, win one game and go from there.

Ramsay: Execution main culprit in Rangers' losses

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 5:15 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

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

Tuesday, Ramsay was hired by the Edmonton Oilers to be an assistant coach. He 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.

NEW YORK -- Craig Ramsay isn't surprised to hear the New York Rangers talking about puck luck and bad bounces now that they're trailing 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Final.

"They're searching," Ramsay told NHL.com. "There's no doubt."

Kings want to finish Rangers as quickly as possible

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 4:45 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- The Los Angeles Kings know what it's like to trail 3-0 in a best-of-7 series. That's why they have no intention of taking their foot off the gas in the Stanley Cup Final.

In the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Kings became the fourth team in NHL history to win a series after losing the first three games when they rallied to eliminate the San Jose Sharks. Wednesday they'll attempt to complete a sweep of the New York Rangers in Game 4 at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

"It wasn't easy for us to come back from 3-0 in the first series against San Jose," Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said Tuesday. "We know how it can happen. All it takes is one game, one momentum shift. The [other] team can run with it, the other team can be down in the dumps.

"That's why this next game is so important for us. We can't let them back into the series. We have to take it to them. They're going to have their best effort without a doubt and we need to have ours as well."

Five things Rangers must do to avoid being swept

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 4:28 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The looks on their faces told the story of one end of this Stanley Cup Final. They were looks of disbelief, of disgust, of dismay. And they were looks that shouldn't have surprised anyone who made their way into the New York Rangers dressing room Tuesday afternoon.

"I'm not going to lie to you, it's pretty much impossible to be upbeat," Rangers center Brad Richards said. "But you have to be professional. The series is not over."

Not yet anyway. Maybe soon, though.

The Los Angeles Kings lead the best-of-7 series 3-0 heading into Game 4 on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS). They are one win away from their second Stanley Cup championship in three seasons.

Rangers focused solely on winning Game 4 vs. Kings

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 3:57 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- After a 3-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, the New York Rangers woke up Tuesday to face the reality that one other team has come back from a 3-0 series deficit in the Stanley Cup Final to win: the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs.

New York's attempt to become the second began with an optional skate Tuesday at Madison Square Garden.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was one of the few Rangers regulars to take the ice. With a night's sleep and a leisurely skate behind him, Lundqvist faced the seemingly insurmountable mission with poise and confidence.

"It was a tough day today," he said. "It was a tough night [Monday]. You have to move on. You understand how serious the situation is and how tough it is for us to try to turn it around. Now we're only looking at [Game 4] and we'll try to win that game. Then you take it from there."

Game 3 matchup: Extra workload doesn't faze Quick

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 11:45 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

A huge part of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final will be the battle between 2012 Cup winner Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings and Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers. Those two elite goalies will go a long way in determining which team will raise the Stanley Cup later this month.

Who has the upper hand? NHL.com scouted the goalies before the series and will track their performance during each game, identifying trends affecting each goaltender. NHL.com correspondent Kevin Woodley, managing editor of InGoal Magazine, will use the 360 Save Review System software from Double Blue Sports Analytics to chart the goals and shots against each goalie in each game of the Stanley Cup Final. Here are his findings from Game 3, a 3-0 victory by the Kings, which gives them a 3-0 lead in the best of-7 series.

Muzzin's play has helped Kings control Cup Final

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 11:15 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- One of the biggest themes from this stunning postseason run of the Los Angeles Kings has been how the additions of Marian Gaborik, Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson have altered the forward depth and made the club more potent offensively.

Another change from 2013 to this season though has occurred gradually and been just as important. Defenseman Jake Muzzin has improved tremendously from his rookie season, and his placement with Drew Doughty on the top pairing has made the Kings a different team.

Muzzin had a key goal in Game 3 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final as the Kings defeated the New York Rangers 3-0. They lead the best-of-7 series 3-0, with Game 4 Wednesday at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m.; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

Rangers desperate for answers in 3-0 hole vs. Kings

Tuesday, 06.10.2014 / 1:10 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK – After a disappointing 3-0 loss against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, it didn't take long for New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's frustration to show.

His postgame scrum started with a simple question: "What happened?" a reporter asked.

Whether it was the phrasing or the tone of the query that bothered him, Lundqvist paused angrily before requesting another question.

"A better question," he said.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.

— San Jose Sharks forward Tommy Wingels on his team's approach entering training camp
