Ottawa Senators center Stephane Da Costa had two goals and two assists during a four-goal third period to lead France to a 6-2 victory against Denmark in preliminary-round play of the 2014 IIHF World Championship at Chizhovka Arena in Belarus.

Ducks GM Murray signs four-year contract extension

Monday, 05.19.2014 / 4:04 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray signed a four-year contract extension with the team Monday that keeps him with the organization through 2020.

Murray said the negotiations with Anaheim Chief Executive Officer Michael Schulman and owners Henry and Susan Samueli began around the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Despite Anaheim's elimination by the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Second Round, the organization has trended upward with its prospects and positioned itself well in the salary cap era since it won the Stanley Cup in 2007.

"The one major thought, first of all, [is that] my wife and family like it here and we love the ownership," Murray said. "And we've spent time since the last Cup rebuilding this, basically. So you want to see it through. That had a lot to staying here and going forward that way. I want to see this through and see where we can take this."


Blackhawks' Crawford focused solely on the present

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

CHICAGO -- Goaltender Corey Crawford has learned the fine art of forgetting about the past. As a result, his present and future have been infinitely more enjoyable.

"I approach every next game [like] that's always the most important," Crawford said minutes after playing a starring role in the Chicago Blackhawks' Western Conference Final opening-game victory against the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. "Game 2 is now the most important. I'm going to rest up now and prepare for that."

With more than 72 hours between the end of Game 1 and the start of Game 2 here at United Center on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS), Crawford will have a lot of time to think about the recent run he has put together.

Louie Korac - Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues paid a hefty price when they acquired goaltender Ryan Miller from the Buffalo Sabres in February.

But after an unsuccessful run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs that ended in a disappointing loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference First Round, the Blues are moving away from Miller and again turning to a familiar face.

The team announced Monday that it resigned goalie Brian Elliott to a three-year, $7.5 million extension and will team Elliott with incumbent Jake Allen for the 2014-15 season, meaning Miller will become an unrestricted free agent in July.


Ramsay: Canadiens must rally behind new goalie

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, 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.

The Montreal Canadiens might be stung by the news that goalie Carey Price will not play again in the Eastern Conference Final, but longtime NHL coach and player Craig Ramsay said all they have to do is look back at their own history to find examples of goalies stepping up and shining in the big moment when no one was expecting them to.

Edmonton's Jarry shows mettle in defeat of London

Monday, 05.19.2014 / 9:50 AM / Prospects

Ed Klajman - Contributor

LONDON, Ontario -- It was not the game that was expected from Edmonton Oil Kings goalie Tristan Jarry on Saturday, in his first start at the 2014 Memorial Cup.

The 2013 second-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins (No. 44) allowed five goals on 32 shots as the Western Hockey League champions lost to the Guelph Storm 5-2.

Even Edmonton coach Derek Laxdal described Jarry's performance as "not great."

So how did the 19-year-old react to the disappointment of that game?

He emerged from the locker room the same way he always does after a game, with a big smile on his face.

Blackhawks create traffic in front of Quick

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

CHICAGO -- The Anaheim Ducks scored 15 goals against Jonathan Quick in the seven-game Western Conference Second Round series that ended Friday.

In the Western Conference Final last year, the Chicago Blackhawks scored 16 goals against Quick and the Kings, in five games, and advanced to the Stanley Cup Final.

Clearly, the Blackhawks believe they know a thing or two about beating one of the game's best and brightest goaltenders.

The Blackhawks put three pucks past Quick in a 3-1 victory at United Center on Sunday afternoon in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final. Game 2 is Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS).


Blackhawks shake off no-goal call on way to win

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

CHICAGO -- Since the start of the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Chicago Blackhawks have found themselves in a few tough spots in 71 games of make-or-break hockey.

They have conquered the majority of the obstacles placed in their path, winning the Stanley Cup in 2010 and 2013. But other challenges have gotten the better of them, leaving them full of regrets and disappointment.

Whether success or failure was found, each of those experiences has built the character of the team that took the ice Sunday afternoon to play the Los Angeles Kings in the first game of the Western Conference Final.

So it should have come as little surprise when the Blackhawks were able to shake off a controversial call and the change in momentum it produced in favor of the Kings in the second period of the game, which Chicago eventually won 3-1 to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-7 series.
