Friday, 05.23.2014 / 12:41 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

The American Hockey League postseason has historically been a platform in which the future stars of the NHL have made their mark.

In this year's Calder Cup Playoffs, Winnipeg Jets prospect and St. John's IceCaps center Eric O'Dell is adding to that tradition.

"For every team at this point in the year, you need your best players to be just that, and he's done that for us," said Keith McCambridge, third-year coach of the IceCaps. "He's given us key goals at important times during games and has continued to just get better and better every single second here during the season."

Canadiens' new second line breaks through in OT

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- If ever one goal could give a line confidence and have a carryover effect in a series, it's the goal that Alex Galchenyuk scored in overtime Thursday night.

A shot from Tomas Plekanec and a rebound off of Galchenyuk's arm that deflected past New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist was the difference in the Montreal Canadiens' 3-2 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final at Madison Square Garden.

The Rangers still have a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series, and Game 4 is Sunday at the Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS), where it will be interesting to see if Montreal's second line of Galchenyuk, Plekanec and Brian Gionta can build off of one lucky break that, for now at least, has turned the series on its ear.

"It gives you confidence," Gionta said, "but at the same time we've gotta go back and try to figure out what we can do better to establish a better forecheck, to get on their D, force them to turn pucks over and come to the net with it."

Rangers frustrated after Game 3 loss to Canadiens

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- It was an opportunity the New York Rangers were happy to have in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Montreal Canadiens: They were in overtime, at home, with a chance to move within one win of a series sweep.

But the Rangers skated off as frustrated losers after a favorable bounce off the arm of Alex Galchenyuk and a standout performance by rookie goaltender Dustin Tokarski gave Montreal a 3-2 win and new life in the series.

The best-of-7 series resumes Sunday at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS). But instead of having a chance to sweep the Canadiens and advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1994, the Rangers need a victory to avoid letting the Canadiens regain the home-ice advantage that New York grabbed by winning the first two games in Montreal, outscoring the Canadiens 10-3.

New York outshot Montreal 37-25 and carried the play for most of the night. But Galchenyuk's goal 72 seconds into overtime left the disappointed Rangers feeling they'd deserved better.

Rookie goalie Tokarski lifts Canadiens to Game 3 win

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

NEW YORK -- Dustin Tokarski had just finished answering a barrage of questions from the media after earning his first-ever win in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. As he was about to walk off the pedestal he was standing on to head toward the visitors' dressing room at Madison Square Garden, he stopped suddenly.

Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin had called out to Tokarski.

Bergevin had waited patiently for his turn to speak with the young man who might have saved Montreal's season with a 35-save performance in a 3-2 Canadiens win against the New York Rangers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final on Thursday.

Tokarski quickly changed course and went to speak with Bergevin, away from the glare of the television cameras and recorders.

Defenseman Muzzin making difference for Kings

Thursday, 05.22.2014 / 6:26 PM / Blackhawks vs Kings - 2014 Western Conference Final

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- At the beginning of this season, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin was trying to find his way into the lineup. He was scratched for five games in October and it appeared it would be a well-worn door to coach Darryl Sutter's doghouse.

It would have been difficult to imagine then that Muzzin would be trusted to play a lot of minutes against the offensively loaded Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final. But Muzzin was a key part of a 6-2 win in Game 2 at both ends of the ice.

The best-of-7 series is tied 1-1 entering Game 3 on Saturday at Staples Center (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).
