Monday, 03.24.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The divisions that make up the Eastern Conference could each have a new second-place team by Tuesday morning after key games Monday night.

Or they could be the same.

The Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers, second and third in the Metropolitan Division, and the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens, Nos. 2 and 3 in the Atlantic Division, are all in action in separate games.

The Flyers lead the Rangers by one point (83-82), but Philadelphia has two games in hand. The Flyers play at home against the Los Angeles Kings, and the Rangers host the Phoenix Coyotes. The Coyotes trail the Kings by seven points for third place in the Pacific Division.

Bruins keep rolling as postseason approaches

Sunday, 03.23.2014 / 6:04 PM / NHL Insider

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

PHOENIX -- Jarome Iginla was doing his job, standing right in front of the crease and screening the eyes of Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith when Boston Bruins teammate Dougie Hamilton set up captain Zdeno Chara for one of his potent slap shots from the point that can exceed 100 miles per hour.

Chara could have missed Ignila and the net completely, or he could have given his teammate a puck-shaped tattoo for the next two weeks.

"I'm sure I would have had my eyes closed there," Bruins forward Shawn Thornton said. "I've been hit by one of those and it's not fun,"

Instead, the blast glanced off Iginla's pants and was deflected cleanly by Smith to wipe out Boston's first deficit in 20 periods of hockey.

"I wasn't moving to get it. I was just standing there and it hit me," Iginla said. "Just pure luck on my part, but it was a great shot by [Chara] trying to shoot around me."

That's how things are going for the Bruins right now: Hard work, confidence and just the right mix of making their own luck and getting some.

The 4-2 win against Phoenix on Saturday gives Boston 12 straight victories, the most since Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito and the Bruins won 13 in a row in 1970-71.

One year after upstarts took over college hockey, traditional powers Minnesota and Boston College have dominated the 2013-14 regular season and hope to continue as the top-two seeds in the 2014 NCAA Division I Men's Hockey Tournament.

The opening two rounds take place next weekend at four regional sites before the 2014 Frozen Four at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on April 10-12.

Minnesota was named the top seed when the 16-team field was announced Sunday and the Golden Gophers will start the quest for their first title in 11 years against fourth-seeded Robert Morris in the West Regional in St. Paul, Minn. Robert Morris, which didn't have a hockey program the last time Minnesota won a championship, is in the tournament for the first time after being the official host for the 2013 Frozen Four at Consol Energy Center.

Sunday, 03.23.2014 / 11:09 AM / Drive to the Playoffs

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

The St. Louis Blues are the first Western Conference team to have its ticket punched to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They are also in the running to win the Presidents' Trophy for the first time since 1999-2000, when they finished with 114 points but lost to the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

Obviously, St. Louis is banking on a better result this spring, but before discussing expectations and potential for Ken Hitchcock's team, let's examine how the Blues got to this point in the season.

Here are five reasons why the Blues are heading to the playoffs for the third straight season with Hitchcock in charge:

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.

— Capitals forward Brooks Laich on the 2015 NHL Bridgestone Winter Classic, the second one of his career after 2011 in Pittsburgh
