Kings' Brown steps up with double-OT winner

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 2:17 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- Whenever Dustin Brown is asked to reflect on his regular season, he’s owned up to it and admitted that it wasn’t up to his standards, at least up until the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

He was invisible on a lot of nights and hardly the wrecking-ball factor that he was during the 2012 Stanley Cup run. But, like the Los Angeles Kings, Brown is making up for it when it counts the most.

Brown capped the second-longest game in franchise history when he deflected defenseman Willie Mitchell’s shot from the left point into the net at 10:26 of second overtime to give Los Angeles a 5-4 win against the New York Rangers in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday at Staples Center.

The Kings will take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series into Game 3 on Monday night at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS) thanks to Brown’s first career overtime goal in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Kings making history with comebacks

Sunday, 06.08.2014 / 1:49 AM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

The Los Angeles Kings continue to make history as they pile up comeback wins in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Kings became the first team in playoff history to win three straight games in which they trailed by more than one goal when they rallied from deficits of 2-0, 3-1 and 4-2 to beat the New York Rangers 5-4 in double overtime Saturday in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final at Staples Center.

Los Angeles also overcame an early 2-0 deficit to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-4 in overtime to win Game 7 of the Western Conference Final, then spotted the Rangers a two-goal lead in Game 1 of the final but rallied for a 3-2 overtime victory. Los Angeles has not held a lead in the past 229 minutes and 15 seconds, covering a span of four games, since the Blackhawks tied Game 6 at 11:34 of the third period.

Bylsma on Canucks' coaching radar: report

Saturday, 06.07.2014 / 6:35 PM / News

NHL.com

The list of candidates to replace John Tortorella as Vancouver Canucks coach could include Dan Bylsma, the Vancouver Sun reported Saturday.

Bylsma was fired by the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday, the same day the Penguins announced Jim Rutherford would replace Ray Shero as general manager.

"We've been in meetings all day, so we haven't had a chance to really sit down and talk about it," Canucks general manager Jim Benning told the newspaper Friday. "But [Bylsma is] an interesting name, for sure."

Tortorella was fired May 1 after one season with Vancouver.

Wild expect goaltender Harding back for camp

Saturday, 06.07.2014 / 5:35 PM / News

NHL.com

Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding is expected to be healthy and ready to play in time for training camp, general manager Chuck Fletcher said Friday.

Harding left the Wild on Dec. 31 to deal with symptoms related to his multiple sclerosis. Before his illness forced him from the lineup, Harding was enjoying a breakout season, going 18-7-3 with a 1.65 goals-against average and .933 save percentage. After missing several weeks, Harding skated with the Wild during the Stanley Cup Playoffs but never made it back into the lineup before Minnesota was eliminated in the Western Conference Second Round.

"I think his battles are well chronicled and well known. I think he's feeling well at this point in time," Fletcher said. "The goal for him is, much like last summer, to build up and get to a point where he'll be able to come into training camp and play well. There's been nothing that I've heard of to lead me to not believe that to be the case."

Penguins GM: Crosby 'just fine,' Fleury 'very good'

Saturday, 06.07.2014 / 5:16 PM / News

NHL.com

New Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford expects Sidney Crosby will be "just fine" in the Stanley Cup Playoffs next year.

Rutherford, named Friday as the replacement for Ray Shero, addressed Crosby, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury and defenseman Kris Letang in an interview with 93.7 The Fan.

Crosby had one goal and eight assists in 13 playoff games before the Penguins were eliminated by the New York Rangers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round after holding a 3-1 lead in that series. Crosby did not have a point in the final three losses.

"Well, the obvious, he didn't have the production that he usually does," Rutherford told the "Starkey and Mueller" show Friday. "But as we know in sports, different times, different games, different series, things change and players don't perform the same way year after year."

Saturday, 06.07.2014 / 1:59 PM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

NHL.com

One month after Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon admitted he was openly fielding offers for the top pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, at least one team has inquired into the cost of selecting first on June 27 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving revealed Friday he has been in touch with Tallon about acquiring Florida's pick.

The Flames have the fourth pick in the first round.

"Now is the time that all of those conversations are happening," Treliving said. "We're going to keep pounding away and try to get a sense of what other teams are thinking. For the most part, teams have gotten through their meetings. They've done their preparation for the draft. The talk between managers is increasing. We'll see where it goes."

Kings forward Trevor Lewis recalls his path to NHL

Friday, 06.06.2014 / 9:14 PM / Player's Blog with the Kings' Trevor Lewis

Trevor Lewis - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings forward Trevor Lewis will be blogging for NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final, offering his insight on what is happening inside the walls of his team's locker room and within the confines of the rink.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, and so I guess I had what might be considered a non-traditional path to the NHL.

My dad and his family were Canadian and he played hockey growing up. We also lived across the street from an ice rink in Salt Lake City, so when I was 2 years old, he took me over and I started learning to skate.

I just loved it. I played every sport growing up, but it always seemed like hockey was my favorite. I always seemed to gravitate toward hockey.

Dorsett glad for two-day break in Stanley Cup Final

Friday, 06.06.2014 / 8:48 PM / Player's Blog with the Rangers' Derek Dorsett

Derek Dorsett - Special to NHL.com

LOS ANGELES -- The two days off between games gave us a chance to unwind yesterday away from the rink and everything.

Earlier this season we stayed down at a great little hotel in Santa Monica, and after the game the other night we went down there again. It's a beautiful hotel, right on the beach, on the water. There's a lot of stuff you can do during a day off. It was good for us.

I went for a bike ride, then I had lunch and went and chilled out in my hotel room to watch some shows.

It was relaxing. It's nice to soak in the sun and just disconnect from the game for a little while.
