Rangers forward St. Louis is playoff hero again

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- In an illustrious NHL career filled with a number of historic victories and memorable moments, New York Rangers forward Martin St. Louis has played the hero countless times.

He was more than happy to do it again Sunday against the Montreal Canadiens at Madison Square Garden.

St. Louis' goal 6:02 into overtime gave the Rangers a 3-2 win in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final. New York leads the best-of-7 series 3-1 and is one win from advancing to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 20 years.

Left all alone by the right faceoff circle, the veteran wing demonstrated the patience that comes with 15 seasons worth of NHL experience. Rather than frantically one-timing the puck on net, he took his time before wiring a shot over the left shoulder of Montreal goaltender Dustin Tokarski.

Rangers overcome penalty in OT to beat Canadiens

Monday, 05.26.2014 / 1:50 AM / Winning Ingredients

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- It was the last thing the New York Rangers wanted to be doing in overtime. They had no choice.

Rangers forward Benoit Pouliot was guilty of holding Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban's stick in the offensive zone 30 seconds into the extra session Sunday, putting New York on the penalty kill for the eighth time in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The Rangers were even on special teams so far in the game, with one power-play goal against and one shorthanded goal for. A second power-play goal against would have tied the best-of-7 series heading into Game 5 on Tuesday at Bell Centre (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

"Your stomach turns a little bit when you take a penalty in overtime any time," Rangers defenseman Marc Staal said. "It gives them that advantage, and it's a big advantage in overtime."

Subban believes Canadiens can rally from 3-1 hole

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- There's seemingly never a moment when Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban doesn't appear to be in control of a situation.

He was at it again following a 3-2 overtime loss in Game 4 against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. After leading all players in ice time and blocked shots, the unflappable Subban fielded more than a dozen questions from reporters in the visitors' locker room before announcing "last question" when he felt the time was right.

"We walked in the room here and a couple of guys said that we're going to put this behind us and get ready for a bigger game come Tuesday," Subban said. "We did a lot. We had a lot of opportunities, but pucks didn't go in. There is a lot of hockey left to be played, and we just have to be prepared to go home and play a good game."

Canadiens lose game of inches, face elimination

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

NEW YORK -- Clichés exist largely because they are often true.

Hockey, or any sport really, being a game of inches is one of them.

Except when that inch means the difference between stealing back home-ice advantage in the Eastern Conference Final and being on the verge of elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the cliché can become a devastating reality.

It can burrow itself into the deeper reaches of your mind and live there for days.

The Montreal Canadiens are living through that reality as they find themselves down 3-1 in the best-of-7 series to the New York Rangers after a 3-2 overtime loss Sunday that could very easily have been a 3-2 regulation-time win if Alex Galchenyuk's shot with 3:15 to play in the third period had moved an inch.

Kulda, Oil Kings top Storm to win 2014 Memorial Cup

Sunday, 05.25.2014 / 9:38 PM / News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Edmonton Oil Kings forward Edgars Kulda doesn't want to go through another NHL draft without hearing his name called. If his performance at the 2014 Memorial Cup was a final audition, he shouldn't be concerned.

Kulda had a goal and two assists to help Edmonton to a 6-3 win against the Guelph Storm on Sunday to win the national championship of Canadian junior hockey. He was named the most valuable player of the tournament.

"I kind of got lucky with that," Kulda said of winning MVP, according to The Canadian Press. "I don't know how I got it, honestly. It's a pleasurable surprise for me. I'm happy to get that one too."

Blackhawks, Kings set up to contend for years

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Last season the Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings met in the Western Conference Final, but injuries for the Kings meant it was hardly a fair fight.

Two seasons ago, the Blackhawks and Kings could have met in the Western Conference Final, but Chicago was bounced in the first round by the Phoenix Coyotes.

The 2014 Western Conference Final is a bit like a heavyweight fight three years in the making. From about late February of 2012 until now, these have arguably been the two best teams in the West. They are at close to full strength, and this series is might turn into an epic showdown befitting of the clubs' success.

Blackhawks hope Kane breaks out against Kings

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Chicago Blackhawks have to be better in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final. Forward Patrick Kane knows the Blackhawks have little chance of being good enough if he doesn't lead the charge.

Kane has been strangely silent in the best-of-7 series against the Los Angeles Kings. He does not have a point and is minus-3. He has seven shots, but only a couple of them have been the type of Grade-A opportunities for which he is famous for producing.

Kane's struggles are just one of the reasons the Blackhawks find themselves in a 2-1 series hole heading into Game 4 on Monday (9 p.m. ET, NBCSN, RDS, TSN). But, he expects himself to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault and Montreal Canadiens coach Michel Therrien continued their war of words Sunday following the morning skates and hours before puck drop in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Final series at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; CBC, RDS, NBCSN).

The Rangers lead the best-of-7 series 2-1.

Vigneault took exception to the post-practice commentary provided by Therrien on Saturday when the Canadiens coach questioned why Rangers assistant coaches were viewing his team's practice.

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
