Sharks must regroup after third straight loss to Kings

Tuesday, 04.29.2014 / 2:51 AM / Sharks vs Kings - 2014 SCP First Round

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- The talking point in the San Jose Sharks' dressing room was the game-winning goal, but forward Logan Couture and coach Todd McLellan eventually broke it down further by talking about the breakdown.

San Jose imploded after Los Angeles Kings right wing Justin Williams scored at 11:56 of the third period, a controversial goal in which Williams whacked at a loose puck and pushed it through the pads of Sharks goalie Alex Stalock. It held up as the game-winner in a 4-1 Kings victory Monday night in Game 6 of the Western Conference First Round series at Staples Center.

Wild's Parise shines in biggest game of season

Tuesday, 04.29.2014 / 2:03 AM / Avalanche vs Wild - 2014 SCP First Round

Dan Myers - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The smile on Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo's face two summers ago was as wide as the July day was long.

A few days after the Wild signed forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter to matching 13-year, $98 million contracts on July 4, 2012, they were introduced to hundreds of local media types inside the entrance at Xcel Energy Center. Yeo was a few chairs down the main table from the franchise's newest star players, but the presence of his grin was conspicuous.

Duchene returns, sparks Avalanche's power play

Tuesday, 04.29.2014 / 1:50 AM / Avalanche vs Wild - 2014 SCP First Round

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Even though Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy played coy with the media Monday morning by not offering a definitive answer one way or another on center Matt Duchene's availability, there was no question on the player's part.

Duchene knew all along he would play in Game 6 of the Western Conference First Round series against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center.

"I made the call [Sunday] that I was ready," Duchene said following Colorado's 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild that evened the best-of-7 series at 3-3.

Five reasons why the Penguins advanced

Tuesday, 04.29.2014 / 1:39 AM / Penguins vs Blue Jackets - 2014 SCP First Round

Shawn P. Roarke - NHL.com Senior Managing Editor

It wasn't easy and it was rarely pretty, but the Pittsburgh Penguins found a way to subdue the Columbus Blue Jackets in the Eastern Conference First Round.

In a series eerily similar to the first-round last season against the New York Islanders, the Penguins played some run-and-gun hockey with the seventh-seeded Blue Jackets before holding on to a 4-3 victory in Game 6 to win the series, 4-2.

In the games Pittsburgh lost, Game 2 and Game 4, the Penguins allowed the Blue Jackets to erase deficits of two and three goals, respectively. In all, the Penguins allowed 18 goals in the six games, a defensive showing that must be improved as they advance to even stiffer competition.

Yet, despite the tight nature of the games (Pittsburgh finished with three more goals than Columbus), the Penguins did advance and will play the winner of the series between the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers, which the Rangers lead 3-2.

Here are five reasons the Penguins are moving on to the second round for the fifth time in the past eight years:

Blue Jackets can't overcome slow start

Tuesday, 04.29.2014 / 12:35 AM / Penguins vs Blue Jackets - 2014 SCP First Round

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- Truth be told, it was the beginning of Game 6 that proved to be the demise of the Columbus Blue Jackets in a 4-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins at Nationwide Arena on Wednesday night that ended their season.

Needing to tie the Eastern Conference First Round best-of-seven series at 3-3, the Blue Jackets promised a better effort than Game 5 on Saturday when they lost 3-1 at Pittsburgh and were outshot 51-24.

Playing before another energized crowd in Columbus, the Blue Jackets did not deliver in the opening 20 minutes. Evgeni Malkin scored twice and the Penguins grabbed a 2-0 lead that would rise to 4-0 on a goal by Brandon Sutter and another by Malkin.

Penguins' Malkin ends drought with hat trick

Monday, 04.28.2014 / 11:08 PM / Penguins vs Blue Jackets - 2014 SCP First Round

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- Evgeni Malkin delivered when the Pittsburgh Penguins needed him most.

Malkin earned his second career hat trick in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in Pittsburgh's 4-3, series-clinching win against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the Eastern Conference First Round at Nationwide Arena on Monday night. The 2009 Conn Smythe Trophy winner was criticized for his lack of production through the first five games of the series, which included a shot-less performance in a 4-3 overtime loss in Game 4.

"Another hat-trick performance from Malkin when you need it," Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said.

Malkin joined Mario Lemieux (3) and Sidney Crosby (2) as the players in franchise history to record multiple postseason hat tricks. Malkin's first playoff hat trick came in Game 2 of Pittsburgh's sweep of the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2009 Eastern Conference Final.

Flames name Treliving as new general manager

Monday, 04.28.2014 / 7:51 PM / News

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- Brian Burke was willing to wait longer to find the next general manager of the Calgary Flames. He didn't have to, thanks in part to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Given a grace window by Phoenix general manager Don Maloney of roughly 10 days to speak with Brad Treliving, Burke added to his front office Monday in naming the Coyotes assistant GM to fill the vacancy created by after Jay Feaster was relieved of his duties on Dec. 12.

"When we asked Phoenix for permission, we fully expected that they would say, 'You can talk to him after the draft and not before,' in which case we would've waited," said Burke, the Flames' president of hockey operations who had served as interim GM since Feaster's dismissal. "What changed was that they said we were free to talk and hire Brad. They gave us a tight window to do it and we got the deal done in that time.

"I'm sure everyone thinks the happiest guy in the room is Brad, but it's probably me."

Canadiens may be as deep up front as Bruins

Monday, 04.28.2014 / 6:50 PM / Bruins vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP Second Round

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The Boston Bruins have long been the gold standard when it comes to the depth of their forwards, something that has been at the root of much of their success in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in recent years.

Several teams have attempted to replicate that blueprint. But in order to do so, it's imperative to find a way to replicate the volume of talent at the forward position the Bruins have boasted for many years.

The Montreal Canadiens believe they might have done just that.

Five reasons why the Stars were eliminated

Monday, 04.28.2014 / 6:23 PM / Ducks vs Stars - 2014 SCP First Round

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

So much has changed about the future of the Dallas Stars in the past 12 months then when the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs is complete, it will be hard to argue that members of any of the other seven eliminated franchises will feel better about how this season went.

That doesn't mean there isn't disappointment in Texas after the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Stars in six games in a Western Conference First Round series. Though the Stars had the fewest points of any playoff team, they played well enough against the Ducks to spring the upset and advance.

There were lessons to be learned from this experience, and a future with Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Valeri Nichushkin at the core of a contending team with general manager Jim Nill and coach Lindy Ruff in charge is one people in Dallas should be excited about.

Here are five reasons fans of the Stars are focusing on that future instead of a second-round opponent:

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
