Getzlaf's return sparks Ducks to blowout win

Saturday, 04.26.2014 / 3:04 AM / Ducks vs Stars - 2014 SCP First Round

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- It wasn't all that long ago that Ryan Getzlaf admitted he struggled as captain of the Anaheim Ducks. He had difficulty balancing hockey and family life as a new father, and the result was one of the worst seasons of his career.

But those days are in the past.

During this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs, Getzlaf became a father for the third time and has been bloodied, scarred and stitched. Nothing has slowed him down; in fact, he's actually furthered his legacy as captain and solidified his Hart Trophy credentials after finishing as the NHL's No. 2 regular-season scorer.

The latest example came Friday night when Getzlaf tied a postseason career-high with a three-point game in a 6-2 win against the Dallas Stars at Honda Center in Game 5 of their Western Conference First Round series. He scored a goal and set up two others after missing Game 4 with an undisclosed upper-body injury, likely the result of taking a slap shot in the face in the final stages of the series opener.

Blackhawks' Toews finding touch at right time

Saturday, 04.26.2014 / 1:39 AM / Blues vs Blackhawks - 2014 SCP First Round

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

ST. LOUIS -- Jonathan Toews says he expects to score "ugly goals" in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. That didn't happen Friday night.

Toews' breakaway goal 7:36 into overtime off a clearing attempt from Duncan Keith by way of Andrew Shaw's shin pad was a thing of beauty, and something of a lucky break too. The Chicago Blackhawks' captain will take it not only for the win, but for his personal confidence.

Toews was forced to help the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup in other ways last year because he went into a deep scoring slump; he went the first nine games without a goal and then another 10 before he scored twice in the last three games of the Stanley Cup Final.

Toews had three goals in 23 playoff games last year; he already has two, both game-winners, in five games this year. Toews' goal Friday lifted Chicago to a 3-2 win against the St. Louis Blues and a 3-2 lead in the best-of-7 Western Conference First Round series.

Blues paying huge price for missed scoring chances

Saturday, 04.26.2014 / 12:45 AM / Blues vs Blackhawks - 2014 SCP First Round

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- Some things just seem to be agonizing. For the St. Louis Blues, the inability to finish scoring opportunities have them down 3-2 in the Western Conference First Round series against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Blues' 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago in Game 5 on Friday saw the home team lose for the first time in this series. Just as in 2013, when the Blues jumped to a 2-0 series lead against the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Quarterfinals before losing in six games, they are on the brink of elimination as they head to Chicago for a must-win Game 6 (3 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

And much like 2013, the inability to bury their scoring chances is exacting a huge price. They led 2-0 in this series and now have dropped three straight.

Rangers lament lost power-play opportunities

Friday, 04.25.2014 / 11:19 PM / Rangers vs Flyers - 2014 SCP First Round

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- The New York Rangers suffered a power outage Friday and paid the price in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference First Round series against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

The Rangers were limited to five shots and no goals on four power-play opportunities in a 2-1 loss that evened this best-of-7 series 2-2. Game 5 is Sunday at Madison Square Garden (noon ET; NBC, RDS, TSN).

"The power play is about execution and you have to give them credit; they were really good on the penalty kill," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said of the Flyers. "Our power play needs to be better. We got some good looks, but at this time in the year, you need more than good looks. You've got to get the job done."

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.
