Capitals happy for rest, but stress staying focused
Given how the past few seasons have ended, the Washington Capitals rightfully were a happy bunch after dispatching the New York Rangers in five games to advance to the second round of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs and earn several days without a postseason contest to play.

This time, Game 7 goes Boucher's way
This time around, Flyers goalie Brian Boucher would not be denied a Game 7 victory. As a 23-year-old rookie playing in the 2000 Eastern Conference Final against the New Jersey Devils, Boucher turned aside 16 of 18 shots in a 2-1 loss against future Hall of Fame goalie Martin Brodeur.

Horton's all smiles after another OT winner
Nathan Horton certainly has the demeanor of a hero. Talk to his teammates and the scouting report is always the same -- here's a guy that loves his job and always has a smile.

Lightning get big lift from third line
All championship teams need contributions from players who aren't the stars. The difference between winning and losing most times is the performance of the third line. The Tampa Bay Lightning think they may have found something special in the trio of Sean Bergenheim, Dominic Moore and Steve Downie.

Toews' tally reminds Luongo of Olympics
Roberto Luongo thought back to February 28, 2010. The situation was so very familiar to him. Nearly 14 months ago inside the very same building, very same dressing room he sat in Tuesday night, Luongo was wearing a Team Canada sweater awaiting overtime in the gold medal game of the Olympic tournament -- an overtime that had to be played because Zach Parise scored on him with less than a minute remaining in regulation.

Sharks get some rest after closing out Kings
Now that one hard-fought series has ended on a successful note for the San Jose Sharks, they have a couple of days to rest and gear up for a second round they anticipate will be at least as difficult. The Sharks needed six games to dispatch the Los Angeles Kings and advance to the Western Conference semifinals for the second year in a row. Three of the wins required overtime.

Coyotes' GM: Off-ice issues no excuse for sweep
Phoenix general manager Don Maloney is the first to admit two years without an owner and the looming possibility of the Coyotes leaving Arizona were an added and uncomfortable burden for his hockey team.

Selanne undecided on future despite fabulous season
Teemu Selanne offered no surprises to what his future holds when he met with the media Tuesday after his Anaheim Ducks were knocked out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Nashville Predators. "Honestly, I don't know," he said. "I shouldn't even answer that question anymore. I let you know when I know something. I think it's funny. Almost every year, everybody keeps asking. I have to say, 'Don't ask me.' I don't know."
