Lightning-Red Wings series familiar to AHL followers

Friday, 04.17.2015 / 1:28 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to NHL.com

From behind the lens of the American Hockey League, the Eastern Conference First Round matchup between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Detroit Red Wings is more than just two divisional rivals going head-to-head: it’s an opportunity to revisit some recent history.

When the Grand Rapids Griffins defeated the Syracuse Crunch to win the AHL's Calder Cup championship in 2013, it also marked a graduation for many players in the series to the NHL. Two years later, their parent clubs are doing battle with many of the same faces hitting the ice in pursuit of another Cup.

Of the players on Detroit's playoff roster, 10 have their names engraved on the Calder Cup as members of the 2013 Grand Rapids Griffins: forwards Joakim Andersson, Landon Ferraro, Luke Glendening, Tomas Jurco, Tomas Tatar, Gustav Nyquist, Teemu Pulkkinen, and Riley Sheahan, defenseman Danny DeKeyser, and goalie Petr Mrazek.

The Philadelphia Flyers on Friday fired coach Craig Berube after two seasons.

"In a nutshell, I just didn't feel he got enough out of our group collectively," Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said in making the announcement.

Berube got the Flyers into the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season, but they finished 14 points out of a playoff spot this season.

Hextall said he made the decision Thursday and informed Berube on Friday.

"It's just a process that I went through," Hextall said. "I wanted to make the right decision. Once I put all the facts together, then you go with your gut and I came up with the decision last night."

MONTREAL -- Ottawa Senators forward Mark Stone's status for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference First Round series against the Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET; CBC, CNBC, TVA Sports) will be determined at game time, coach Dave Cameron said Friday.

"It's like every other player," Cameron said. "As long as it's not detrimental to his health that's the first thing you ask and you go from there."

Stone participated in Ottawa's optional morning skate Friday. He worked on his stickhandling and shot pucks before taking part in a light shooting drill and leaving for the dressing room about six minutes after he jumped on the ice.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
