Avalanche coach Roy ready to return to Bell Centre

Tuesday, 03.18.2014 / 12:34 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Patrick Roy's relationship with the Montreal Canadiens and their legion of fans is, in a word, complicated.

It could be argued Roy was the historic franchise's greatest Stanley Cup Playoff hero, playing goal behind two teams in 1986 and 1993 that had no business winning the championship, but did almost exclusively because of him.

The Stanley Cup victory in 1993 was the 24th in Canadiens history, by far the most in the NHL.

It was also the most-recent.

Tortorella savors process that won 2004 Stanley Cup

Monday, 03.17.2014 / 3:10 PM / NHL Insider

Lonnie Herman - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA -- John Tortorella took time Monday to do something he rarely does, look back and reminisce.

The occasion is the 10-year reunion of the Tampa Bay Lightning’s 2003-04 Stanley Cup team. The organization has gathered 14 former players from that team along with Tortorella, currently coach of the Vancouver Canucks, who was behind the bench for Tampa Bay, and they will be recognized before the game against Vancouver on Monday.

"I'm not a big guy to get reminiscent about all this stuff, but I think I owe that team to speak on it," Tortorella said. "It is the 10th-year anniversary. You're locked in with those guys and that will never change."

The players and Tortorella got together for dinner Sunday after the Canucks arrived from Sunrise, Fla., where they played the Florida Panthers earlier in the day.

Penguins' Letang back at practice after stroke

Monday, 03.17.2014 / 2:39 PM / News

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang returned to practice Monday less than two months after having a stroke.

After his latest battery of tests doctors cleared Letang, the 26-year-old defenseman was not limited in any way throughout the session and spent multiple drills alongside defenseman Rob Scuderi, who he has been paired with when healthy.

Two weeks ago, Letang said he was unsure if he would be able to return this season, saying he is targeting "day by day" as opposed to a specific return date. It's still not clear if he'll return this season, but his tune has changed concerning that possibility.

"There's no doubt in my mind [his goal is to return his season]," Letang said. "Even the day I got the stroke, I asked the doctor when I'm going to be able to play again. So there's no doubt about it. If I'm on the ice today, it's because I want to return."

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
