Farrish: Rangers must put aside pressure, play loose

Thursday, 05.07.2015 / 1:30 PM / Rangers vs Capitals - 2015 SCP Second Round

Jon Lane - NHL.com Staff Writer

For additional insight into the Eastern Conference Second Round series between the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers, NHL.com has enlisted the help of Dave Farrish to break down the action. Farrish will be checking in throughout the series.

Farrish was an assistant coach for the Anaheim Ducks and Toronto Maple Leafs from 2005-14. He won the Stanley Cup with the Ducks in 2007. He also coached 1,027 games in the minor leagues, including the American Hockey League. In addition, Farrish, a former defenseman, played 430 games over seven seasons in the NHL.

Go out, relax and play your game.

That was Dave Farrish's message to the Toronto Maple Leafs during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs when they trailed the Boston Bruins 3-1 in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal. His message to the 2015 New York Rangers is similar, except it's a different situation. The Maple Leafs, who tied the best-of-7 series 3-3 before losing Game 7 to the Bruins, were the underdog, whereas the Rangers are the Presidents' Trophy winners picked by many to win the Stanley Cup.

Thursday, 05.07.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL Draft

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Brandon Wheat Kings defenseman Ryan Pilon hopes to someday make proud the small town of Duck Lake, Saskatchewan.

Located between his birth town of Prince Albert and Saskatoon, Duck Lake is the place Pilon now calls home whenever he isn't starring for the Wheat Kings in the Western Hockey League.

"There's about 600 people in Duck Lake," Pilon said. "If you blink you'll pass right through it. It's small-town living, but there were plenty of backyard rinks and Duck Lake Rink, where I'd play with my family and cousins all the time."

Capitals' Burakovsky the hero against childhood idol

Katie Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

WASHINGTON­ -- Washington Capitals forward Andre Burakovsky spent a large portion of his childhood idolizing New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.

On Wednesday, Burakovsky scored his first two Stanley Cup Playoff goals -- against Lundqvist -- to help the Capitals to a 2-1 win in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Second Round at Verizon Center.

"Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up," Burakovsky said. "He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this."

Capitals one win away after Holtby save on Hagelin

Thursday, 05.07.2015 / 12:45 AM / Rangers vs Capitals - 2015 SCP Second Round

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

WASHINGTON -- New York Rangers forward Carl Hagelin prepared to take a penalty shot against Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby in the third period of Game 4 at Verizon Center on Wednesday.

With so little to separate the Rangers from the Capitals in their Eastern Conference Second Round series, it could not have been more important.

Washington defenseman Mike Green hooked Hagelin at 8:01, after the speedy forward broke clear receiving a head-man pass.

The Capitals led 2-1. Hagelin was at his blue line waiting for permission to shoot. The crowd was braying, trying to unnerve Hagelin and help the Capitals maintain their lead.

Canadiens must rebound after tough loss or be swept

Corey Long - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA – The Montreal Canadiens are determined not to let their season end this quickly.

The Canadiens controlled most of the play in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Second Round series on Wednesday, but they were stunned when Tyler Johnson's goal with 1.1 seconds remaining in regulation gave the Tampa Bay Lightning a 2-1 victory and a 3-0 lead in the best-of-7 series.

The Canadiens are facing the prospect of being swept as they prepare Game 4 at Amalie Arena on Thursday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports). The quick turnaround means they can't dwell on the deflating loss.

Blackhawks' Kane back playing at pre-injury level

Wednesday, 05.06.2015 / 5:16 PM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2015 SCP Second Round

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

MINNEAPOLIS -- Patrick Kane's rapid recovery and return to superstar-level production after a fractured clavicle threatened to ruin his and the Chicago Blackhawks' season has been pretty remarkable.

That Kane insists he probably isn't operating at full capacity and can get better makes it even more remarkable.

Kane has scored four goals in the Blackhawks' Western Conference Second Round series against the Minnesota Wild, or as many as the Wild have in the three games, all Chicago victories.

The Wild will try to avoid being swept Thursday in Game 4 at Xcel Energy Center (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports).

"Sometimes you're not really playing as well as you think but the puck is going in the net," Kane said Tuesday. "It looks a lot better on the score sheet. I've had some good looks in this series where guys have gotten me good opportunities to some clear shots on net and I've been fortunate enough to see them go in.

"I think there is a lot of things [I] can do better, whether it is defensively or making strong plays with the puck or getting the puck more to create a little more. It is a tough series and you have to be patient in this series. You have to think about that too."
