Rangers getting better at closing out victories

Sunday, 03.23.2014 / 12:06 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Less than two weeks ago, the New York Rangers appeared to be showing their warts as a team that could play well, could hang in tight games, but couldn't close. That seems like a distant memory now.

Nothing is set, not even close, especially with a pair of home games this week against the Phoenix Coyotes and Philadelphia Flyers followed by a four-game western road trip. But after going 2-4-1 to start the month, the Rangers have won four of their past five games. All four victories have come on the road, where they have a League-best 23 wins.

They beat the New Jersey Devils 2-0 on Saturday at Prudential Center to solidify their spot as the third-place team in the Metropolitan Division. The Rangers have 82 points, one fewer than the red-hot Flyers and four more than the fourth-place Columbus Blue Jackets, a team the Rangers beat Friday night.

Berglund filling offensive void for Blues

Saturday, 03.22.2014 / 11:15 PM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- According to Patrik Berglund, nothing has changed since his return from the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The physical characteristics are certainly the same: He's still a left-handed shooter, he still wears No. 21 and he still plays for the St. Louis Blues.

What has changed is Berglund's name popping up more often on the stat sheet at the end of the night. More often bodes well for these Blues.

Berglund has 14 goals this season -- not an eye-popping number considering the Blues (47-16-7 have played 70 games. But six of those eight goals came in a recent eight-game stretch, and seven of his 31 points on the season came in a 10-game set.

Flyers' Downie leaves game against Blues

Saturday, 03.22.2014 / 1:27 PM / News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Flyers forward Steve Downie sustained an upper-body injury on the opening shift of their game Saturday against the St. Louis Blues and will not return.

Downie collided with the Blues' Patrik Berglund in the neutral zone 45 seconds into the game, with Downie's head appearing to strike Berglund's shoulder. Downie remained down on the ice for several moments before skating off with trainer Jim McCrossin.

Downie has 24 points in 59 games this season, including 17 in 48 games with the Flyers, who acquired him from the Colorado Avalanche in October. He missed four games in November with a concussion sustained in his first game with Philadelphia.

Bruins' defense, depth led to NHL's first playoff clinch

Saturday, 03.22.2014 / 11:11 AM / Drive to the Playoffs

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Zdeno Chara is still arguably the best defenseman in the National Hockey League and Tuukka Rask is a favorite to win the Vezina Trophy this season. Toss in enviable forward depth and a solid defense corps behind Chara along with a seasoned coaching staff, and there are plenty of reasons why the Boston Bruins are the first team to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs this season.

The Bruins punched a ticket to the playoffs Friday night by winning their 11th straight game, fittingly with a near-flawless defensive performance in a 2-0 win against the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center.

Chara has been his usual minute-munching, forward-crunching self this season. He once again plays nearly 25 minutes per game and always faces the toughest matchups, and Chara, who turned 37 earlier this week, should again be up among the top candidates for the Norris Trophy. He won the trophy in 2009.

Here are five more reasons the Bruins are heading back to the playoffs:

The Boston Bruins became the first team to reserve a spot in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Friday, and a Western Conference power can join them Saturday. 

The San Jose Sharks could book a spot in the playoffs if they defeat the Washington Capitals in any fashion and either the Senators defeat the Stars in any fashion or the Bruins defeat the Coyotes in regulation. The Sharks would also clinch if they earn one point against the Capitals and the Senators defeat the Stars in regulation.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.

— San Jose Sharks forward Tommy Wingels on his team's approach entering training camp
