Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

TORONTO -- Florida Panthers director of scouting Scott Luce is familiar with the usual posturing that takes place leading up to the NHL draft.

He said he expects the drama to be ramped up even more in the weeks ahead since Panthers general manager Dale Tallon admitted his willingness to shop the No. 1 pick for the right price. The 2014 NHL Draft is June 27-28 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

The Panthers finished 29th in the League standings and won the first pick at the NHL Draft Lottery in April. Tallon made public his willingness to trade the pick in May on a radio interview on Sportsnet 590 The Fan.

Florida has won the lottery three times; in 2002 and 2003 Florida won it and traded the pick.

Moore's goal lifts Rangers to Stanley Cup Final

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- In between taking the opening faceoff of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final and being sent out to secure a 1-0 win in the final seconds, Dominic Moore scored the deciding goal to send the New York Rangers to their first Stanley Cup Final in 20 years.

It was a standout performance for Moore, who will be going to the Cup Final for the first time in his 14-season career after the Rangers eliminated the Montreal Canadiens in six games Thursday. It's a special and very emotional way to punctuate a two-year period that saw him take a season off from hockey after his wife, Katie, died from fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma, a rare form of liver cancer, on Jan. 7, 2013.

"I owe a lot to my teammates for helping me get through this last year and a half," the 33-year-old center said. "I feel tremendously proud to be a part of this team, especially amidst the circumstances going to the Stanley Cup Final."

Canadiens provide no support for Tokarski

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

NEW YORK -- The Montreal Canadiens wanted to win this Eastern Conference Final for their goalie. They lost it by letting their other goalie down.

When Carey Price was lost for the series in Game 1, a 7-2 victory for the New York Rangers, the Canadiens hopes of reaching the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 21 years were essentially dashed in the minds of most.

The Canadiens, coming off their worst loss of these Stanley Cup Playoffs, said they wanted to win to give their superstar goaltender a chance to play again this season. But if there is one member of the Canadiens who can say he truly did that, it was the unknown figure who replaced Price.

Prior to this series Dustin Tokarski was best known to most hockey fans as the goaltender of the Canadian national junior team who drove hockey analyst Pierre McGuire to fits of enthusiasm at the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championships. He was too small to be an NHL goalie, too unorthodox in style.

Lundqvist's save on Canadiens' Vanek lifts Rangers

Friday, 05.30.2014 / 1:50 AM / Winning Ingredients

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist reacted on instinct. He threw his stick, tossed up his blocker, and nearly did a cartwheel.

The acrobatics were not only necessary, they were game-changing.

Lundqvist's remarkable, highlight-reel blocker save on Montreal Canadiens forward Thomas Vanek's deflected shot at 15:15 of the second period in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final preserved what at the time was a 0-0 game.

The fantastic save loomed larger less than three minutes later, when Rangers forward Dominic Moore scored what turned into the only goal of the game in a 1-0 series-clinching win for the Rangers, who earned their first trip to the Stanley Cup Final since 1994.

Thursday, 05.29.2014 / 8:05 PM / News

NHL.com

New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer said he would welcome back goalie Martin Brodeur "with open arms" next season.

DeBoer was interviewed by Hockey Night in Canada Radio on Wednesday. Brodeur and Cory Schneider split time in the Devils net last season, and it has been speculated Brodeur, 42 years old and about to become an unrestricted free agent, will be moving on from his only NHL team.

Brodeur played 39 games for the Devils last season. Schneider, who was acquired in a trade at the 2013 NHL Draft, played 45; he had been the backup to Roberto Luongo with the Vancouver Canucks.
