Thursday, 06.05.2014 / 6:41 PM / News

Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop said Thursday he expects to be recovered from injuries to his elbow and wrist in time for training camp in September.

"Absolutely," Bishop told the Tampa Bay Times. "We'll be ready to go."

Bishop could not participate in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after dislocating his left elbow in a game April 8. The Lightning were swept by the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference First Round.

He described his elbow as 90 percent healed and said he plans to skate again in August.

Rangers rally around Girardi after costly turnover

Thursday, 06.05.2014 / 5:55 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- When Henrik Lundqvist has one of his rare off nights or gives up the occasional bad goal, the New York Rangers always say their world-class goalie is the least of their concerns and worrying about a bounce-back effort from him is wasted energy.

That narrative switched to New York defenseman Dan Girardi on Thursday, when center Derek Stepan, left wing Carl Hagelin and defenseman Ryan McDonagh sat in front of the media at the Rangers' beachfront hotel.

Girardi's defensive-zone turnover directly led to Justin Williams' game-winning goal Wednesday that gave the Los Angeles Kings a 3-2 overtime victory in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final at Staples Center.

Game 2 is Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

Vigneault: Only Rangers' 'A' game will win Cup Final

Thursday, 06.05.2014 / 5:18 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- The message to the New York Rangers from coach Alain Vigneault after Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final was as clear as the Southern California sky Thursday.

"We're not going to beat [the Los Angeles Kings] if we do not all bring our 'A' game," Vigneault said. "It is that strong of an opponent that we're playing against.

"Our 'B' game won't do it. They're one of the best teams I've seen in a long time. Areas to exploit, they don't jump out at you. We're going to have to be better than we were."

The Rangers went toe-to-toe with the Kings for 40 minutes Wednesday at Staples Center. They played fast and took a 2-0 lead barely 15 minutes into the game. They had the Kings on their heels. But they couldn't keep it that way.

Excerpt of Chapter 11 of 'The Wait is Over: The New York Rangers and the 1994 Stanley Cup'

Thursday, 06.05.2014 / 2:12 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The New York Rangers are in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, four wins against the Los Angeles Kings short of claiming their first championship since 1994, a moment which remains one of the proudest moments in the history of the Original Six franchise.

While waiting to see what the future holds for the Rangers, here is a look back at the 1994 Stanley Cup Final, a seven-game victory against the Vancouver Canucks, as detailed in "The Wait is Over: The New York Rangers and the 1994 Stanley Cup," by NHL.com editor John Kreiser. This excerpt, the final section of Chapter 11: Scaling Mount Vancouver, deals with Game 7 of the Final.

June 14, 1994, dawned sunny and warm, a perfect "summer starts next week" kind of day. It was a day the Rangers and New York hockey fans knew they would never forget; the question was how they would remember it.

"I remember Game 7 -- you can't sleep,” goaltender Glenn Healy says. "You leave the house that day, and I remember I said to my wife, 'This is either going to be one of the best days of our lives or one of the worst.' We don't know. We'll see in 12 hours. You're watching TV and they've got the New York Stock Exchange on, and the brokers on the exchange floor are chanting, 'Let's go Rangers.'"
