Colorado Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere is expected to announce his retirement in mid-June, the Toronto Sun reported Monday.

"I do not see a reason to remain in the League," Giguere said, according to the QMI Agency. "I just want to be sure to do it right, to meet my agent Bob Sauve and talk to the Players' Association."

Ramsay: Team-first play helps Subban, Canadiens

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, NHL.com has enlisted the help of former NHL coach Craig Ramsay to break down the action. Ramsay will be checking in throughout the series.

Ramsay played in more than 1,000 NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres before going on to coach the Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers and Atlanta Thrashers. In the 2000 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he led the Flyers to the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Final. Ramsay most recently was an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.

Craig Ramsay watched P.K. Subban's end-to-end rushes, his attempts to put the Montreal Canadiens on his back in the first three games of the Eastern Conference Final. Ramsay's final assessment was that Subban was playing selfish hockey.

Canadiens seek spark to extend series with Rangers

Sean Farrell - NHL.com Correspondent

BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens coach Michel Therrien expects his friendship with New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault will return to normal soon enough. He just hopes it isn't too soon.

The opposing coaches in the Eastern Conference Final crossed paths prior to the Rangers' 3-2 overtime win Sunday at Madison Square Garden that gave New York a 3-1 lead in the best-of-7 Stanley Cup Playoff series.

Television cameras caught Vigneault lowering the passenger window of his car to speak with Therrien, who smiled.

"When I saw him coming I said I made sure to move away, and so what I told him was that I didn't want him to hit me, and he laughed about it," Therrien said Monday after the Canadiens held an optional practice at their suburban practice facility. "I thought it was funny."

Oil Kings reflect on stunning Memorial Cup title run

Monday, 05.26.2014 / 10:47 AM / News

Ed Klajman - NHL.com Contributor

LONDON, Ontario -- Edgars Kulda had just been named the most valuable player of the 2014 Memorial Cup after leading the resilient Edmonton Oil Kings to the franchise's first junior hockey championship with a 6-3 upset victory against the top-ranked Guelph Storm.

After outshining a long list of high NHL draft picks he played alongside and against, Kulda was asked about his standing as NHL Central Scouting's 145th-ranked North American skater for the upcoming draft.

In the typically jovial and playful manner that made him a media darling at the tournament, the 19-year-old Latvian laughed, shrugged his shoulders, and coyly avoided giving a direct answer about anything related to the draft.

Rangers playing with fire despite commanding lead

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Like a group of well-trained magicians, the New York Rangers have not yet been burned by the fire they've been playing with in the Eastern Conference Final.

The Rangers are one win away from advancing to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 20 years because goalie Henrik Lundqvist was brilliant in Game 2 and their penalty kill was the difference in Game 4.

Getting outshot 41-30 and relying on terrific saves by Lundqvist one night, and getting bailed out by their surging penalty kill despite giving up eight power plays on another night isn't the best way to live in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but that's how the Rangers have taken a 3-1 lead on the Montreal Canadiens.

Combine gives teams full scope of top prospects

Monday, 05.26.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Many of the top prospects eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft will be put to the ultimate test this week in an effort to impress potential future employers at the NHL Scouting Combine in Toronto.

The primary purpose of the Combine, which runs May 26-31, is to aid all 30 NHL teams in the player selection process. NHL Central Scouting invited 119 players from North America and Europe to take part.

The Combine will allow NHL scouts and general managers an opportunity to interview as many prospects as they wish during a five-day period from May 26-30.

"By the time the Combine rolls around we've done our checking, but what I look for in an interview is the maturity level and how far along they are in that area," Buffalo Sabres assistant general manager Kevin Devine told NHL.com. "That usually determines how far away they are from playing in the NHL. But I don't think the interviews are going to jump anyone five or six draft spots either.

"They could jump a spot or two if guys are professionals in the interviews, but there won't be any big jump at the top, especially with the top five in this draft class."

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."
