Housley could be Devils' choice as next coach: report

Saturday, 05.30.2015 / 10:22 AM / News

Nashville Predators assistant coach Phil Housley has emerged as the frontrunner to be the next coach of the New Jersey Devils, reported Saturday.

Hiring a coach is the first big decision for general manager Ray Shero, who was hired by the Devils on May 4. The Devils and the Detroit Red Wings are the only NHL teams without a coach.

Housley, 51, has been with the Predators for two seasons. He coached the United States to the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship; among the players on the team was forward Blake Pietila, who signed an entry-level contract with the Devils on Wednesday. He also was an assistant coach for the U.S. at the World Championship in 2011, 2013 and 2014.

Blackhawks to play Toews, Kane together in Game 7

Saturday, 05.30.2015 / 3:00 AM / Ducks vs Blackhawks - 2015 Western Conference Final

Brian Hedger - Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Joel Quenneville prefers to balance his scoring lines, but the Chicago Blackhawks coach will opt for more horsepower at the top with one game left to decide the Western Conference Final.

The Blackhawks will start with right wing Patrick Kane playing next to center Jonathan Toews on the first line in Game 7 against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Saturday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).

"I know Game 5, later in the game, they had some shifts together and I thought they were dangerous, and I thought they were really good last game as well," Quenneville said Friday after practice. "We'll start them together and we'll work it out and see what happens."

Former Rangers get Cup Final chance with Lightning

NEW YORK -- Tampa Bay Lightning forwards Brian Boyle and Ryan Callahan and defenseman Anton Stralman played for the New York Rangers last season. Boyle and Stralman made it to the Stanley Cup Final against the Los Angeles Kings, losing in five games.

On Friday, Boyle, Callahan and Stralman eliminated their former team from the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 2-0 win in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final at Madison Square Garden.

The Lightning will play in their second Stanley Cup Final, against the Anaheim Ducks or Chicago Blackhawks. Tampa Bay defeated the Calgary Flames in seven games in 2004.

"Obviously it feels awesome, being able to go to the Stanley Cup Finals," said Callahan, who was Rangers captain from 2011 until he was traded to the Lightning in 2014 for Lightning captain Martin St. Louis. "The effort we put forth tonight, the way we played, it's an exciting feeling, my first trip there."
