DETROIT -- Petr Mrazek was the Detroit Red Wings goaltender for their Eastern Conference First Round series against the Tampa Bay Lightning and played well in a seven-game defeat, but he'll have to compete with Jimmy Howard to claim the No. 1 job next season, general manager Ken Holland said Friday.

"My message to those guys today was professional sports is about competition and the competition begins again in September," Holland said as the Red Wings cleaned out their lockers at Joe Louis Arena.

"If you didn't like the way the season ended, then get in the gym and do the work and be ready to be better next season. If you liked the way it finished, then get in the gym and make sure things keep going your way."

DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said he doesn't know where he'll be next season, but he does know it will be behind an NHL bench.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Friday he wants it to remain his team's bench.

Babcock, who coached this season in the final year of his contract, talked about his future as the Red Wings cleaned out their lockers two days after their season ended in a 2-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference First Round series.

"In the next 10 days Ken and I will talk about it," Babcock said. " … And I'm going to talk to my wife to see how she feels about it."


Islanders coach Capuano to return next season: report

Thursday, 04.30.2015 / 10:30 PM / News

New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano and his staff will return next season, general manager Garth Snow told Newsday on Thursday.

"Our coaches did a great job, whether it was preparing our players or with the communication between coaches and players, which was outstanding," Snow told the newspaper after the Islanders finished their clean-out day. "There were some aspects of our game, whether it was with our penalty kill that struggled early on and became a strength for us by the end, or our power play, which was a strength at times early on and we didn't have one in the playoffs. That's an area of concern. We'll analyze all different areas of our team and try to get better."


Red Wings target May for Babcock contract: report

Thursday, 04.30.2015 / 8:56 PM / News

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Thursday that he would like Mike Babcock to return as coach.

"He's regarded in the industry as one of the top coaches in the game, if not the top coach," Holland told "He's in the prime of his career. Our hope is that Mike wants to stay, but he's positioned himself to have the option to explore."

Babcock has led the Red Wings to the Stanley Cup Playoffs in each of his 10 seasons in Detroit, but his contract expires June 30. Detroit has lost five of its past six playoff series and hasn't advanced past the second round since 2009.

The Red Wings would like to sign Babcock to a long-term contract before his current one expires, but Holland said there is no timetable for when Babcock will make his decision.

"There's an element of urgency, but not hours or days," Holland said. "Probably in the month of May."

The Ottawa Senators would have an interest if former captain Daniel Alfredsson wanted to pursue a position within the organization, general manager Bryan Murray said Wednesday.

"[It] was good to see him around, good to be able to talk to him, he's a bright guy and I think down the road he'll make a decision whether he wants to be in hockey or not," Murray said, according to the Ottawa Sun. "He still hasn't made that decision, but very definitely if he was interested, we'd be interested in talking to him."

Alfredsson and his family attended the Senators' Game 6 loss to the Montreal Canadiens that eliminated them from the Eastern Conference First Round on Sunday.

OTTAWA -- Bryan Murray, who is battling Stage 4 colon cancer, said he will continue as general manager of the Ottawa Senators.

Murray, 72, will be entering his ninth season as Senators GM this fall. The Senators have made the Stanley Cup Playoffs in five of the eight seasons Murray has been in charge.

"I'm keeping going," he said Wednesday. "I've talked to the doctors, I've talked to my family, I talked to ownership, and if my health holds up and everything, I feel I can keep doing this job. It's better than sitting on the couch at home, I think."

Murray said he offered a contract extension to coach Dave Cameron on Monday, the day after the Senators were eliminated from the Eastern Conference First Round of the playoffs by the Montreal Canadiens in six games.

NASHVILLE -- Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber had surgery after he sustained a dislocated kneecap in Game 2 of the Western Conference First Round series against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Weber took a hit from Chicago forward Brandon Saad behind the Nashville net and struggled to get back to the bench. Weber said he knew right away that something was wrong.

"I felt something kind of pop a little bit, snap I guess," Weber said. "It was my kneecap that kind of subluxed, so I just felt that come across. I didn't know at the time exactly what it was, but I knew that's not good, that shouldn't happen. I tried to stand on it. Obviously, it was pretty bad pain in the knee."

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
