Five questions: Flames' Treliving eager to get started

Tuesday, 05.06.2014 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving:

Before spending the previous seven seasons as the assistant general manager of the Phoenix Coyotes, Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving lived a minor-league life with major-league aspirations.

Treliving, who was hired by the Flames last week, played in the International Hockey League, the American Hockey League and the ECHL.

Once he was done playing in 1996, Treliving, 26 years old at the time, founded the Western Professional Hockey League, which later merged with the Central Hockey League. Treliving was the president of the CHL for seven seasons.

Even during his time working with Coyotes GM Don Maloney, Treliving was in charge of Phoenix's AHL affiliate, currently the Portland Pirates and formerly the San Antonio Rampage.


Kings' Doughty roughed up, but excels anyway

Tuesday, 05.06.2014 / 2:55 AM / Ducks vs. Kings - 2014 SCP Second Round

Corey Masisak - Staff Writer

ANAHEIM -- They hit him. They tripped him. They slashed him. They ran him.

For Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty, it was another night of being a marked man, a target for all sorts of confrontational behavior, and the Anaheim Ducks tried to lessen the impact made by one of the most influential players in the world at his position.

It didn't work.

Doughty was sporting a fat lip when he addressed reporters after a 3-1 victory Monday, but the smile was genuine. He and the Kings came to Honda Center twice in the past three days and have left with not only two victories but a firm grip on this Western Conference Second Round series.

"We could only dream of this, really," Doughty said. "We knew it was going to be tough to do. They might say we don't deserve it or whatnot, but it doesn't matter. We're up 2-0 going back to Staples and it's exactly what we planned."


Penguins' Fleury focused after back-to-back shutouts

NEW YORK -- As Marc-Andre Fleury sat at his locker, smiling on occasion as the questions came fast and furious, he certainly didn't seem like a player who had just won his second straight shutout in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Pittsburgh Penguins' 29-year-old goalie appeared content to maintain the focus that enabled him to stop 57 straight shots in recording back-to-back wins on consecutive nights to help the Penguins to a 2-1 lead in their best-of-7 Eastern Conference Second Round series against the New York Rangers. Game 4 is Wednesday in New York (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

Fleury made 35 saves in a 2-0 victory Monday in Game 3 at Madison Square Garden, becoming the first Pittsburgh goalie with consecutive playoff shutouts. It's a feat he wasn't aware of and one that, to him, won't mean much if he isn't raising the Stanley Cup to end the season.


Rangers remain confident after Game 3 loss

Tuesday, 05.06.2014 / 12:05 AM / Penguins vs Rangers - 2014 SCP Second Round

Tal Pinchevsky - Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- On paper at least, the New York Rangers appeared to do enough to earn a win against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Second Round series on Monday night.

Despite losing 2-0 on Monday to fall behind 2-1 in the best-of-7 series, New York outshot the Penguins 35-15, enjoyed long stretches of puck possession and swarmed around Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. Even the Rangers' dormant power play, which went 0-for-5 and has now failed to score on 34 straight attempts, showed signs of life.

In the end, two opportunistic Penguins goals and Fleury's standout play proved to be the difference. But the strides the Rangers made in this game weren't lost on coaches and players.


Bettman happy to see Ducks, Kings in spotlight

Monday, 05.05.2014 / 10:25 PM / Ducks vs. Kings - 2014 SCP Second Round

Curtis Zupke - Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman watched the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings put hockey in the California spotlight at the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium in January.

The festive spectacle there could only have been topped by the first-ever Ducks-Kings matchup in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the teams obliged with the Western Conference Second Round series that has placed hockey back on the forefront in the L.A. market and beyond.

"This is a pretty exciting time for hockey in Southern California, obviously," Commissioner Bettman said Monday night before Game 2 at Honda Center, where the mixed fan base has made for an intense atmosphere. "If you're looking at one of the byproducts of the re-alignment and the change of playoff format, you're seeing it in this series: The first time that these two teams have actually faced off against each other in a playoff series.


McCarthy: Canadiens should benefit from last change

Monday, 05.05.2014 / 8:09 PM / Bruins vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP Second Round

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

For additional insight into the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens, enlisted the help of longtime NHL assistant/associate coach Kevin McCarthy.

McCarthy played in more than 500 NHL games with the Philadelphia Flyers, Vancouver Canucks and Pittsburgh Penguins, then spent a decade as an assistant and associate coach with the Carolina Hurricanes, where he was a member of the staff that led them to a Stanley Cup championship in 2006. He joined the Flyers as an assistant during the 2009-10 season and stayed in Philadelphia until October 2013.

Home-ice advantage has shifted to the Montreal Canadiens in their Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Boston Bruins, and Kevin McCarthy feels that might prove to be significant.

Canadiens coach Michel Therrien will now have the last change, and if he's smart about it, he could drive Bruins coach Claude Julien up the wall, McCarthy says.

He remembers facing Julien and the Bruins in an Eastern Conference Semifinals series of the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs with the Carolina Hurricanes, a series Carolina won in overtime of Game 7.


Flames to move AHL franchise to Glens Falls

Monday, 05.05.2014 / 7:25 PM / News

The American Hockey League's Board of Governors on Monday approved the relocation of the franchise owned by the Calgary Flames from Abbotsford, B.C., to Glens Falls, N.Y., beginning next season.

The Flames' AHL franchise will begin play this fall at the Glens Falls Civic Center, which had been home to the Adirondack Phantoms since 2009. The Phantoms had been previously granted approval to relocate to Allentown, Pa., where they will begin play as the Lehigh Valley Phantoms this fall.


Canadiens' Subban elevating game in crunch time

Monday, 05.05.2014 / 6:51 PM / Bruins vs Canadiens - 2014 SCP Second Round

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The Montreal Canadiens were playing on the road against the Ottawa Senators on April 4 and defenseman P.K. Subban had what could generously be described as a difficult night.

His first two shifts ended in Senators goals, and coach Michel Therrien decided Subban should sit the rest of the period after playing 37 seconds.

Therrien said afterwards that Subban "wasn't ready to start the game" to justify the benching. Though it would be hard to argue with that statement, Therrien's decision was debated ad nauseam on Montreal open line radio shows and on social media for days.


Blackhawks' Hossa about more than goals these days

Monday, 05.05.2014 / 5:37 PM / Blackhawks vs Wild - 2014 SCP Second Round

Brian Hedger - Correspondent

CHICAGO -- It was a goal that got the Chicago Blackhawks started in a 4-1 victory Sunday in Game 2 of their Western Conference Second Round series against the Minnesota Wild.

It was also a great example of how valuable veteran forward Marian Hossa is to the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Midway through the first period in a scoreless tie, Hossa used his experience, speed and skill to create the first of his three assists in the win that put Chicago up 2-0 in the best-of-7 series. Late coming back toward the Blackhawks' end of the rink, Hossa saw a potential breakaway developing with the puck in the Chicago defensive zone.


Two-time Stanley Cup winner Lonsberry dies at 67

Monday, 05.05.2014 / 4:50 PM / News

Ross Lonsberry, who helped the Philadelphia Flyers win the Stanley Cup in 1974 and 1975, died at a California hospital Sunday following a long battle with cancer.

The Flyers confirmed the news Monday. Lonsberry was 67.

"My thoughts and prayers go out to Ross' wife, Juanita, and the Lonsberry family," Flyers chairman Ed Snider said. "Ross played six and a half seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers, including our Stanley Cup teams. He was a hard-hitting, two-way player who contributed greatly to our success. I have very fond memories of Ross as a player and a friend, and he will sorely be missed."

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
