Haggerty: Winning for Iginla on minds of the B's (Comcast SportsNet New England)
(Thu, 17 Apr 2014 22:18:49 PDT)
BOSTON The win it for [insert veteran NHL player here] meme isnt quite as old as the Stanley Cup itself. But theres a time-honored tradition of focusing on grizzled veterans in search of their first Stanley Cup once teams travel into the deep of the NHL postseason. Its a little early for the Win it for Iggy! mantra to become the de facto motto for the 2014 Boston Bruins during their postseason run, but theres also no doubting its on the minds of those in Bostons talented, hockey learned dressing room. Iginla endeared himself to the Bruins when he punched out Radko Gudas on opening night in October, he became a true member of the team in December when he waved goodbye to his Calgary fans one last time, and now he hopes to enjoy the spoils of his choice to sign in Boston: a long, healthy voyage to the Cup Final with pretty good odds of being the last hockey team standing.

Red Wings-Bruins Preview (The Associated Press)
(Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:58:18 PDT)
The Boston Bruins won the Presidents' Trophy by leading the NHL with 117 points. ''I heard about 40 percent of the series are upsets in the first round,'' Boston coach Claude Julien said. So that certainly makes that first round a challenge.'' That begins for top-seeded Boston on Friday night against eighth-seeded Detroit. The Red Wings had 24 fewer points in the regular season but went 3-1 against the Bruins, a sign that Detroit's speedy, puck-possession style can overcome Boston's physical approach.

Panthers win NHL draft lottery (The SportsXchange)

The Florida Panthers, who finished with the second-worst record in the NHL this season, won the league's draft lottery Tuesday.

Florida Panthers win 2014 NHL Draft lottery, leaping over Buffalo (Puck Daddy)
(Tue, 15 Apr 2014 17:33:53 PDT)
The Buffalo Sabres had a 25 percent chance of taking the top spot in the 2014 NHL Draft Lottery, which would have been a nice consolation prize after a terrible, imploding season. Alas, they got more sand kicked in their face – Floridian sand. The Florida Panthers, with an 18.8 percent chance of getting the top pick, won the NHL Draft Lottery on Tuesday night. Last season the Panthers had the best odds and fell to No. 2 overall, taking forward Aleksander Barkov. “We’re looking to continue to build on our core talent of the players,” said Travis Viola, VP of hockey operations. “We’re anxious to put a winner in Florida, but if we take our time and make a really good plan with Mr. Dale Tallon and Mr. Bill Torey … a little slower pace than rushing right away.” It’s the second time the Panthers will have the first overall pick, the last time coming in 1994 when Florida took defenseman Ed Jovanovski at No. 1. Will it be another defenseman at No. 1 for Florida? Defenseman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts is one of three players expected to go at the top of the draft, along with Sam Reinhart and Sam Bennett. The rest of the lottery field: 2. Buffalo Sabres 3. Edmonton Oilers 4. Calgary Flames 5. New York Islanders 6. Vancouver Canucks 7. Carolina Hurricanes 8. Toronto Maple Leafs 9. Winnipeg Jets 10. Anaheim Ducks (from Ottawa Senators) 11. Nashville Predators 12. Phoenix Coyotes 13. Washington Capitals.

Burke: Tortorella should 'keep his mouth shut' (The Associated Press)
(Mon, 14 Apr 2014 16:27:15 PDT)
Calgary Flames interim general manager Brian Burke defended his coach Bob Hartley on Monday and said Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella ''oughta keep his mouth shut.'' Burke, also Calgary's president of hockey operations, responded to Tortorella's postgame comments after Sunday's game in Vancouver, where the Canucks won the regular-season finale 5-1. Tortorella had objected when Canucks forward Daniel Sedin was hit from behind and driven into the boards by Flames forward Paul Byron late in the second period.

Brian Burke thinks John Tortorella should shut his mouth (Puck Daddy)
(Mon, 14 Apr 2014 15:01:28 PDT)
John Tortorella dislikes Bob Hartley. Maybe “dislikes” doesn’t properly convey the emotion between the Vancouver Canucks coach and his Calgary Flames counterpart, who antagonizes Tortorella on a Avery-vs.-Brodeur level. They have history with each other dating back to the 1990s, and that anger boiled over this season when Tortorella was suspended for 15 days after being physically restrained from attacking Hartley on Jan. 18 after the Flames coach’s personnel decisions sparked a line brawl. “I was going to get him. I’m not going to lie to you,” said Tortorella on Monday, recalling the incident. The feud grew on Sunday when the Flames’ Paul Byron put Daniel Sedin on a stretcher with a hit, and Tortorella felt the Flames coach's "embarassing" behavior that followed was over the line in a meaningless game. “I probably shouldn’t say anything, but he pisses me off. I just don’t like the disrespect. It aggravates me,” said Tortorella on Hartley. “I just don’t like the way he does business. I don’t like’em. I need to protect my players. A lot of people don’t understand that. “It aggravates the [crap] outta me. It’s bush league,” he said, before cutting off his postgame press conference in frustration. Hartley hasn’t engaged in much verbal sparring with Tortorella during this feud. Then again, why does he need to when he has smack talkin’ Brian Burke as a boss. Burke, in his postseason press conference, addressed the Tortorella comments as one expected he would. Burke felt Tortorella’s anger was focused on the notion that Hartley was arguing for penalties on the Canucks for attacking Byron after the hit, and doing so when Sedin was still being treated. Via writer Chris Nichols, who transcribed the Burke comments: "So what Bob Hartley did last night was exactly what John Tortorella would have done had it been one of our players lying on the ice and he felt there was an inequity in the penalty call. So for him to afterward say it was disgusting and all that - John Tortorella, who's a friend of mine - should start worrying about John Tortorella and the Vancouver Canucks and stop worry about us. Our coach acted completely appropriately last night and Torts ought to keep his mouth shut." Burke also said later, on Tortorella’s personal attack on Hartley: "I really don't care. Like, days and weeks go by where I don't care what John Tortorella thinks about our team. I can promise you, it's been since January 18 where I've worried about it and I'm not going to worry about it tomorrow. I don't know why he seems so worried about our team. He should be worried about his team. And John Tortorella was on my staff for the Olympics in 2010. He's a good guy. I don't know what's going on in his head, but you know what? Shut your mouth and worry about your team. Leave my coach alone." Read the full Burke comments here. To your corners, gentlemen, for the offseason; then please, come out fighting next fall. Assuming Tortorella is still coaching somewhere in the NHL, as Burke said Hartley’s back next season.

Daniel Sedin injured in Canucks' win over Flames (The Associated Press)
(Mon, 14 Apr 2014 00:47:12 PDT)
A miserable season for the Vancouver Canucks ended with a scary incident. Daniel Sedin scored twice before leaving the game on a stretcher after taking a hit from behind as the Canucks wrapped up a disastrous 2013-14 campaign with a 5-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday night. The result of a game that meant very little was overshadowed by the nasty incident late in the second period when Sedin was checked in the numbers by Calgary's Paul Byron and stayed flat on his back. The Canucks confirmed that Sedin, who was moving his fingers immediately after the hit, was taken to a hospital as a precaution and later released.

NHL Three Stars: Simmonds, Smith standouts on last day of the regular season (Puck Daddy)
(Sun, 13 Apr 2014 21:30:48 PDT)
Romance in Phoenix. No. 1 Star: Craig Smith, Nashville Predators Smith led the way in a strong Predators finish, with 2 goals and 2 assists in a 7-3 win over the Minnesota Wild. That's the second time in as many nights the Predators have scored 7. Perhaps this is Barry Trotz showcasing a new coaching style in a last-ditch effort to save his job? No. 2 Star: Wayne Simmonds, Philadelphia Flyers Simmonds scored his 28th and 29th of the year in the Flyers' 6-5 shootout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. His 29th is the reason Philadelphia left with a point, as he tied the game up with 10 seconds to go: No. 3 Star: Daniel Sedin, Vancouver Canucks Sedin scored twice in the first period of the Canucks' 5-1 win over the Calgary Flames. (He may have had a hat trick if not for the unfortunate, nasty hit he took late in the second that sent him to the hospital. It was a sad end to a rough season for the Sedins, who looked like themselves only briefly this year.) Honorable mention:  Martin Brodeur was named the game's first star in what's likely to be his final start as a member of the New Jersey Devil, and maybe the last start of his career. He made 16 saves in a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins... Jason Spezza and Kyle Turris scored in the shootout as the Ottawa Senators closed out the season with their fifth straight win, a 3-2 decision over the Pittsburgh Penguins... It was a goalie duel between the Washington Capitals and the Tampa Bay Lightning, with both Anders Lindback and Braden Holtby stopping every shot they faced until Matthew Carle won it 1-0 in a shootout for Tampa. The win gave the Lightning home ice advantage in the first round, so Montreal probably didn't appreciate Alex Ovechkin treating the shootout like an All-Star game: ... Nick Bonino scored the overtime winner in the Anaheim Ducks' 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche, but this was Teemu's night, and he opted to share it with Jean-Sebastien Giguere ... David Moss scored the game-winner in a 2-1 Phoenix Coyotes triumph over the Dallas Stars. This Colton Sceviour goal was beautiful: ... Anders Lee scored twice as the New York Islanders finished the year with a 4-3 shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres... Justin Abdelkader scored two goals for the Detroit Red Wings, who won 3-0 over the St. Louis Blues. Did You Know? The Capitals' game was decided in a shootout for the 21st time this season, an NHL record. Dishonorable mention: Ilya Bryzgalov was pulled after allowing 5 goals on 21 shots for the Wild, who have to be a little bit concerned about their goaltending heading into the postseason... How have the Blues lost six straight?

Canucks 5, Flames 1 (The SportsXchange)
(Sun, 13 Apr 2014 20:58:24 PDT)
VANCOUVER -- Left winger Daniel Sedin scored a pair of goals in just under two periods of work as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 5-1 on Sunday night in the final game of the 2013-14 NHL season for both clubs. Sedin scored his goals before he was taken off the ice on a stretcher late in the second period after being sent head-first into the boards by Calgary center Paul Byron, who hit him from behind and received a boarding major and game misconduct. The Canucks, who missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008, finished with a 36-35-11 record in a tumultuous season under beleaguered coach John Tortorella, who is expected to be fired following only one campaign in Vancouver. The rebuilding Flames, long since eliminated from the playoffs, recorded a 35-40-7 mark to fall one win and six points shy of the veteran-laden Canucks.
