Bylsma joins NHL Network as analyst for Cup Final

Monday, 06.09.2014 / 9:15 AM / NHL Network


NEW YORK – Former NHL player and coach Dan Bylsma will join NHL Network as a studio analyst for Game 3 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. NHL Network will broadcast live from New York at Chase Plaza outside Madison Square Garden, with extensive coverage of the Final.

Bylsma led the Pittsburgh Penguins to the 2009 Stanley Cup championship after taking over behind the bench midway through the season. He won the Jack Adams Award as the League's top coach in 2010-11, directed the United States Olympic team at the 2014 Sochi Games, and compiled a franchise-record 252 wins over his five-year tenure in Pittsburgh.

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 11:05 PM / AHL Update


Travis Morin and Scott Glennie scored twice and Chris Mueller and Mike Hedden also scored to lead the Texas Stars to a 6-3 win against the St. John's IceCaps in Game 1 of the Calder Cup Finals at Cedar Park Center on Sunday night.

Will O'Neill, Kael Mouillierat and Jordan Hill scored for St. John's. Michael Hutchinson made 14 saves in the loss.

Game 2 is set for Monday in Texas (8:30 p.m. ET; NHLN-US), the American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars.

After O'Neill's goal tied the game 1:47 into the second period, Mueller gave Texas a 2-1 lead 2:05 later, when he took a pass from Dustin Jeffrey (three assists) and fired a wrister from the right circle past Hutchinson for his sixth goal of the playoffs.


Goalie matchup Game 2: Lundqvist's load increases

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 9:05 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

A huge part of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final will be the battle between 2012 Cup winner Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings and Vezina Trophy winner Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers. Those two elite goalies will go a long way in determining which team will raise the Stanley Cup later this month.

Who has the upper hand? NHL.com scouted the goalies before the series and will track their performance during each game, identifying trends affecting each goaltender. NHL.com correspondent Kevin Woodley, managing editor of InGoal Magazine, will use the 360 Save Review System software from Double Blue Sports Analytics to chart the goals and shots against each goalie in each game of the Stanley Cup Final. Here are his findings from Game 2, a 5-4 double-overtime victory by the Kings, which gives them a 2-0 lead in the best of-7 series.


Experience plays big role in Kings' ability to rally

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 8:44 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Will the magical comebacks ever end?

After becoming the first team in NHL history to play the maximum 21 games en route to to the Stanley Cup Final and, along the way, win three straight Game 7s on the road, the Los Angeles Kings continue to defy the odds in the championship round against the New York Rangers.

The Kings hold a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series despite the fact they haven't led in regulation in either of the opening two games at Staples Center; the winning goal was scored in overtime each game.

Los Angeles hopes to get off to a better start in Game 3 on Monday at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

"I would have to say we're not proud of the way we started games and find ourselves in the same situation and regurgitating the mumbo-jumbo every time," Kings right wing Justin Williams said. "But we're in a results-oriented League and the results are that we're up 2-0 [in the series] and I don't care how we got here."


Richards authoring a comeback tale with Rangers

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 5:33 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Brad Richards was standing near the door leading out of the visitor's dressing room at TD Garden. His suit was already on with his tie knotted up because he never took either off during Game 5 of last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals.

It was May 25, 2013 and the New York Rangers had just been eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 3-1 loss against the Boston Bruins. Richards was a healthy scratch that night. It was the second time in as many games.

"It was the lowest point in my career," Richards said prior to Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. "You never want to be on the outside looking in when your teammates are battling in what I consider the best part of hockey -- the playoffs."


Stars, IceCaps set to battle in Calder Cup Finals

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 1:15 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

A postseason that began with the 16 most prolific teams in the American Hockey League has been narrowed down to two, as the Texas Stars and St. John's IceCaps will play for the league's highest honor in the 2014 Calder Cup Finals beginning Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET at Cedar Park Center in Cedar Park, Texas.

The regular-season champion Stars, the AHL affiliate of the Dallas Stars, ousted the Toronto Marlies (Toronto Maple Leafs) in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, while the Winnipeg Jets' affiliate in St. John's took down the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (Pittsburgh Penguins) in six games to win the Eastern Conference crown.

This series will be the first-ever between the Stars and IceCaps. Texas had an impressive 106 points during the regular season to earn the AHL's Macgregor Kilpatrick Trophy and the No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs. St. John's had the third-highest point total in the Eastern Conference with 99.


For Rangers, frustration must give way to focus

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 3:11 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- The picture of the New York Rangers' devastation Saturday night sat in the first stall to the right of the entrance into the visitor's dressing room at Staples Center.

There sat goalie Henrik Lundqvist, his head buried underneath his hands, looking inconsolable as the media walked into the room looking for answers as to how and why the Rangers coughed up another two-goal lead in the Stanley Cup Final only to lose in overtime again, this time 5-4 in double overtime to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 2.

Lundqvist, his equipment off at this point, had to gather himself and his thoughts before opening himself up to the interrogators in the room. It's impossible to imagine how difficult this was for him, especially because he was as frustrated as he was devastated at how it unfolded.

One of the goals scored, Lundqvist said, should not have been a goal. It angered him deeply.

"I'm extremely disappointed on that call, or non-call," Lundqvist said. "They got to be consistent with that rule."


Dorsett: Rangers have to forget about Game 2 loss

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 3:09 AM / Player's Blog with the Rangers' Derek Dorsett

Derek Dorsett - Special to NHL.com

LOS ANGELES -- Obviously we're very disappointed right now. We thought we had a good effort tonight, but we have to find a way to close out these games when we're up by two goals.

It's happened to us twice in two games that the Los Angeles Kings have come back on us and won. When we get a lead like that we should be able to play with it and close those games out.

Now we've got to dig deep and figure a way out.


Lewis: Kings found a way to win Game 2

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 2:52 AM / Player's Blog with the Kings' Trevor Lewis

Trevor Lewis - Special to NHL.com

LOS ANGELES -- This was definitely the second game in a row where we didn't want to come out and start like that, but we found a way.

We didn't want to spot them a couple of goals and give them the lead, but as the game went along I think we started to play better. In the third period we started to pick it up a little bit. We had more chances and got two goals in there and once again found a way to inch one out.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
