Avalanche clinch Central crown with Blues' loss

Sunday, 04.13.2014 / 3:27 PM / News

NHL.com

The Colorado Avalanche have gone from 29th-best in the NHL to division champions.

One season after finishing last in the Western Conference, the Avalanche clinched the Central Division title on Sunday when the St. Louis Blues lost 3-0 to the Detroit Red Wings. It is the first division title for Colorado since 2002-03.

By winning the Central and finishing second in the conference, the Avalanche will play the top wild card in the West, the Minnesota Wild, instead of the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, in the first round of the playoffs.

This is the franchise's first trip to the postseason since 2009-10. The Avalanche have not won a playoff series since 2008.

Sabres goalie Hackett leaves game on stretcher

Saturday, 04.12.2014 / 5:12 PM / News

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- Buffalo Sabres goalie Matt Hackett left the game Saturday against the Boston Bruins on a stretcher after a third-period collision with Torey Krug in the crease.

The Bruins defenseman was skating toward the net to receive a pass when he collided with Sabres defenseman Jamie McBain, went airborne, and fell on Hackett's right leg.

The goalie was unable to get up and medical personnel were required to take him off the ice with 11:35 to go.

"I haven't had a chance to watch it back. Honestly I don't even know what happened," Krug said. "I just felt like my feet got kicked out from under me and I landed on his leg. For a second I thought he was OK and then he started screaming. So I feel bad. It's just a tough play."

Hackett, 24, was scheduled to travel back to Buffalo with the team.

"It doesn’t look good right now," Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. "We're going to wrap him up as best as we can and get him back home, get our doctors to look at him, but it doesn't look too good right now."

Trevor Daley happy to be back in playoffs with Stars

Saturday, 04.12.2014 / 1:22 AM / News

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

DALLAS -- It's been quite a while since Trevor Daley experienced playoff hockey -- six years to be exact. He's the longest-tenured member of the Dallas Stars and the only player on the current roster who was a member of the last Dallas team to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, in 2008. So the sense of relief he expressed following a 3-0 playoff-clinching win against the St. Louis Blues on Friday night was understandable.

"It's a great feeling," Daley said. "We've been battling hard for a long time. It's just kind of like a little bit of a relief and we could go in knowing that the next game that we're in and get ready for the playoffs.

BC stars Gaudreau and Arnold sign with Flames

Friday, 04.11.2014 / 11:19 PM / News

Boston College teammates Johnny Gaudreau and Bill Arnold signed entry-level contracts with the Calgary Flames on Friday following the conclusion of their NCAA careers. The signings were announced after Gaudreau was named the winner of the Hobey Baker Award, given each year to the top player in Division I.

Gaudreau, a fourth-round pick (No. 104) in the 2011 NHL Draft, led the NCAA with 36 goals, 44 assists and 80 points. The 5-foot-7, 150-pound junior forward had a goal and two assists Thursday, when the Eagles lost 5-4 to Union College in the semifinals at the Frozen Four.

Arnold, a senior, was a fourth-round pick (No. 8) by the Flames in 2010. He had 14 goals and 53 points for BC this season, much of which was spent on a line centering for Gaudreau and Kevin Hayes, the Chicago Blackhawks' first pick (No. 24) in 2010.

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Glenn "Chico" Resch announced Friday he is retiring as New Jersey Devils television analyst on MSG Networks after 18 seasons.

Resch, 65, acknowledged during the first intermission of the game against the New York Islanders that his sister-in-law being ill in Minnesota prompted his decision to be with his wife, Diane. His final telecast will be Sunday afternoon when the Devils host the Boston Bruins.

"I never thought of this as a profession because at the end of the day I'm talking about hockey, a sport that I love and have a tremendous amount of respect for," Resch said. "That's why I've always had a special relationship with the people watching on TV and cheering in the arena; I'm an extension of them. I've been lucky to do this for 18 years and I've enjoyed every handshake and conversation I've ever had with Devils fans."

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.

— Washington defenseman Matt Niskanen on why he decided to sign with the Capitals
