PITTSBURGH -- Forward Evgeni Malkin plans to finish his career with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Malkin said Sunday he has no intention to leave the Penguins. Despite the Penguins losing in five games to the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference First Round, Malkin believes the proper pieces are in place for the Penguins to remain a Stanley Cup contender.

KESLER PROPELS DUCKS INTO SECOND ROUND

Ryan Kesler scored twice in the third period, including the eventual series-clinching goal, to guide the Anaheim Ducks past the Winnipeg Jets and into the second round of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

* Anaheim swept a best-of-7 series for the fourth time in its history and the first time since the 2006 Western Conference Semifinals vs. the Colorado Avalanche. Their other series sweeps came in 2003 en route to the franchise's first berth in the Stanley Cup Final (WQF vs. Detroit Red Wings and WCF vs. Minnesota Wild).

* The Ducks fell behind 1-0 late in the first period, but Emerson Etem tied the game less than 90 seconds later. Anaheim overcame a deficit in each contest in the series, and was the first team in NHL history to win three consecutive games in one playoff series when trailing entering the third period (Games 1-2-3).

* Overall, the Ducks led for only 38:26 during the four games, including a total of 11:21 in the first three. The Jets held the lead for 68:45 and the clubs were tied for 138:01.

* The Elias Sports Bureau says 38:26 is the least amount of time any team has ever led in a four-game series sweep. The previous record was 40:49 set by the Red Wings vs. Anaheim in the 1997 Western Conference Semifinals.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
