Kings defenseman Regehr likely to retire from NHL

Saturday, 04.11.2015 / 6:57 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr said Saturday he will likely retire after the Kings defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-1 at Staples Center.

"Probably the last professional game I’ll play," Regehr said. "I talked to [Kings general manager] Dean [Lombardi] just after I got here [in 2013] and he asked me how long I thought I could play for. I told him I think I can give you two hard years and we’ll see … I think it’s time to move on to the next chapter in life."

Regehr, 34, played 15 seasons in the NHL as a physical, hard-hitting defenseman whose body absorbed a lot of impact over the years. He was due to become an unrestricted free agent.

Five reasons Senators clinched a playoff berth

Saturday, 04.11.2015 / 4:15 PM / Expert Picks

Evan Sporer - NHL.com Staff Writer

The 2012 Los Angeles Kings proved that all a team needs to do is get to the Stanley Cup Playoffs; from there, anything can happen. Los Angeles caught fire after the 2012 Trade Deadline, sneaking into the postseason as the No. 8 seed, and then eventually winning the 2012 Stanley Cup.

The Ottawa Senators have followed that blueprint to the letter so far.

On Feb. 10, the Senators were 14 points out of a playoff spot. Five teams stood in the way of a postseason berth.

Playoff hockey is all about "what have you done for me lately?" and of late, the Senators have been the hottest team in hockey. Ottawa is 23-4-4 since Feb. 10, and 32-16-7 since coach Dave Cameron took over on Dec. 11. Th Senators, the one led recently by a first-year goaltender and timely goal-scoring, now have a chance to win the Stanley Cup.

Here are five reasons the Senators clinched a playoff berth:

Saturday, 04.11.2015 / 2:13 PM / News

Kurt Dusterberg - NHL.com Correspondent

RALEIGH, N.C. -- As the Carolina Hurricanes prepare for the offseason after having failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for a sixth consecutive season, there is a possibility management will make significant roster changes. Captain Eric Staal is among those players who are uncertain about their future.

With one season remaining on a seven-year contract, Staal said he has had no discussion with the Hurricanes about an extension.

"No contract talks," he said. "I'm not worried about it to be honest. I'm not sure what their plans are or what lies ahead."

Left wing Max Pacioretty skated Saturday morning for nearly 30 minutes at the Montreal Canadiens training facility, coach Michel Therrien told the Canadiens website.

It was Pacioretty’s first time on the ice since he sustained an upper-body injury in a game at the Florida Panthers on April 5.

Therrien said Pacioretty was responding well to treatment, but he provided no further update to the probability of Pacioretty being ready for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Playoff countdown: Senators can cap amazing run

Saturday, 04.11.2015 / 12:16 PM / News

NHL.com

The 2014-15 NHL regular season concludes Saturday with a 15-game schedule with game play stretched across approximately 12 hours. Final positioning and numerous individual accomplishments and milestones are left to be determined before the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on April 15.

Saturday is the final day of the NHL regular season, and all 30 teams will play game No. 82. There's still much to be determined with the season coming to a close, including two playoff berths in the Eastern Conference, and seeding in both conferences.

The Ottawa Senators play in one of the first games of the day against the Philadelphia Flyers. Earning at least a point will clinch the Senators a playoff berth. A win would secure at least the first wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference. If Ottawa loses in regulation, it can still get into the playoffs. The Boston Bruins would either need to lose in any fashion, or, the Pittsburgh Penguins would need to lose in regulation. Pittsburgh plays the Buffalo Sabres, and, like Ottawa, has multiple ways it can clinch a berth. A win in any fashion will secure the Penguins a spot in the postseason. An overtime loss paired with an Ottawa regulation loss or a Bruins regulation loss would also earn Pittsburgh a spot. If the Penguins and Bruins level on points for the final spot, Boston owns the tiebreaker and would qualify.

Five players in race for NHL scoring title on final day

Friday, 04.10.2015 / 11:02 PM / News

NHL.com

Five players have a chance to win the NHL scoring title on the final day of the regular season, one of the closest races in League history.

Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins and John Tavares of the New York Islanders enter the full schedule of games Saturday leading the League with 84 points. Each had one point in New York's 3-1 win at Pittsburgh on Friday, moving ahead of Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars, who has 83.

Jakub Voracek of the Philadelphia Flyers has 81, and Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals has 80.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.

— Sabres forward Jack Eichel on transitioning from college hockey to the NHL
