Rangers continue home dominance of Flyers in Game 1 (The SportsXchange)
(Thu, 17 Apr 2014 20:06:14 PDT)
NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers continued their home ice dominance over their bitter rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers, with a 4-1 win Thursday in the opening game of an Eastern Conference quarterfinal series at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers, who scored three third-period goals to break it open, extended their home winning streak against the Flyers to nine straight games. Philadelphia's last win at the Garden was Feb. 20, 2011. Rangers' centers Brad Richards and Derek Stepan and left winger Carl Hagelin recorded three unanswered goals, snapping a 1-1 tie.

NEW YORK -- Breaking open a close game with three third-period goals, the New York Rangers knocked off the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 in the opening game of an Eastern Conference quarterfinal series Thursday at Madison Square Garden. Rangers centers Brad Richards and Derek Stepan and left winger Carl Hagelin recorded third-period goals to send the Flyers to their ninth consecutive loss at Madison Square Garden. Philadelphia's last win at the Garden was Feb. 20, 2011. New York struck twice on the same power play in the third period.

Flyers Skate Update: Akeson's playoff debut (Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia)
(Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:00:54 PDT)
NEW YORK A week ago, Jason Akeson had played in just one NHL game in his career and had never even been to New York City. But Thursday night, the 23-year-old will make his playoff debut in Game 1 of the Flyers' first-round series against the Rangers. Its pretty crazy, Akeson said. Akeson will play in the same spot he occupied in the Flyers 6-5 shootout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes last Sunday, his only game with the Flyers this season, on Sean Couturiers line with Matt Read.

Flyers' Ray Emery to start Game 1 versus Rangers (NBC on Yahoo Sports)
(Thu, 17 Apr 2014 07:14:25 PDT)
In the back of his mind, Ray Emery knew there was a chance he would be in net for the playoffs. His suspicions were confirmed Wednesday, when Flyers coach Craig Berube announced that Emery would start Game 1 of the team's first-round series against the New York Rangers Thursday at Madison Square Garden. Steve Mason will not make the trip to New York. He remains day to day with an upper-body injury. Berube called the decision "precautionary." “He’s out,” Berube said. "He’s not 100 percent. I said if he weren’t 100 percent, he would not play." Mason was injured Saturday against the Pittsburgh Penguins, didn't play in that game's third period and didn’t suit up for Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Carolina Hurricanes. He practiced for just 15 minutes Tuesday, and wasn’t even present at Skate Zone for Wednesday's session. Berube said only that Mason "didn't feel good." There's no way to know yet whether Mason could return for Game 2 Sunday in New York, he said. “It’s part of the game sometimes," Berube said. "Things happen. We have other people. We’re a team. That doesn’t change." The Flyers’ playoff hopes now rest on the shoulders of Emery, who has appeared in 36 playoff games in his career with the Ottawa Senators and Anaheim Ducks. He won a Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks last year, but didn't get into any of the team's postseason games. He has a 20-15 playoff record. Mason, by contrast, has never won a playoff game. He's 0-4. "I take everything as a learning experience," Emery said. "You learn from successes, you learn from failures as well. I’ve had a lot of both. I get excited to play in these situations. Especially playoffs, especially in a group like this." Emery said nothing will change about his preparation. He admitted, however, that he took a little extra care of himself in recent days after Mason was injured. As a veteran, he knows to expect the unexpected. Twice before in his career he's been given starts in key games he wasn't expecting: with the Senators in place of Dominik Hasek and with the Ducks after Jonas Hiller was hurt. “You’re always trying to be prepared, trying to stay healthy and ready and fill in when needed, which was mainly my goal this year,” Emery said. “But … I’m excited about it. I feel like I can do well.” Cal Heeter, who played his first NHL game Sunday against the Hurricanes, will serve as backup goaltender while Mason is out. Yann Danis -- who, unlike Heeter, has NHL experience -- is out for the season with a knee injury and is therefore unavailable as call-up from Adirondack. Emery is 7-2-0 lifetime against the Rangers, with a 1.87 goals-against average and .936 save percentage. This season, however, he struggled in the sole game he played in New York, a 4-1 loss on Jan. 12. “It wasn’t the best game for the boys and myself,” he said. “They come out fast, they came out fast up there. Like I said, you take the negatives and positives out of things. You’ve got to be aware, but I’m not too worried about that.” As they've said all season, Emery's teammates agree they are just as confident in him as they are in Mason. While things might change a bit for the defense -- Mason is better at handling the puck, for instance -- the changes are small. The Flyers' game plan is the same. "Mase or Razor, I think we have a lot of confidence in them," Giroux said. "They’ve played some big games for us this year. Obviously, Razor has some experience in the playoffs. He’s won a Cup. For him to bring that experience, it’s good." Though Mason didn't travel to New York Wednesday with the rest of the team, he could in theory join them later this week. Or not. But whatever happens, Berube said, he's certain the Flyers can deal with it. "Things happen," Berube said. "Good teams find a way to get it done." - Sarah Baicker, CSN Philly

Pass or Fail: Tampa Bay Lightning playoff anthem 'We Want the Cup' (Puck Daddy)
(Wed, 16 Apr 2014 06:55:10 PDT)
The Stanley Cup Playoffs have finally arrived and that means it's also time for those ultra-supportive playoff anthems to be released among the various NHL markets involved. You might remember Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" used in support of both the Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators last year. Some riff off popular music, while others create their own. This is the case for this anthem for the Tampa Bay Lightning, featuring rapper Jinx , who mixed up Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What," proclaiming one simple thing: They want the Cup. What, no namecheck for Ondej Palat or Valtteri Filppula? The message is pretty simple, aside from wanting said Stanley Cup, Jinx has another message: "Someone tell Lord Stanley, come home to his Tampa Bay family." Tampa's quest for their second Stanley Cup since 2004 will begin without goaltender Ben Bishop,  who's been ruled out for Game 1 . It'll be a grind, but if the Lightning are indeed crowned champions in June, we can look back to this playoff anthem as to where the journey all began. So, what did you think going by playoff anthem standards? Pass or Fail: Tampa Bay Lightning playoff anthem 'We Want the Cup' Stick-tap Alexis Boucher

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.

BOSTON The timing of the horrid Boston Marathon bombings ensured that the Boston Bruins will always be linked with the tragic day for the city of Boston. The Bruins were supposed to play an April 15 game that Monday night against the Ottawa Senators that was quickly postponed. The Black and Gold were also the first Boston sports team that resumed activity a couple of days later in a Wednesday night game against the Buffalo Sabres, and had that moving, emotional moment when the TD Garden fans came together to sing the Star Spangled Banner with one voice. ...

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?

The Pittsburgh Penguins are ready for the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Ottawa Senators aren't headed to the postseason, but captain Jason Spezza wanted to make sure his team finished the season strong. Spezza scored in the shootout to help the Senators beat the Penguins 3-2 on Sunday night and stretch their season-ending winning streak to five games. ''We wanted to play for each other,'' said Spezza, who finished his first season as captain.

Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin was taken off the ice on a stretcher and hospitalized after being hit from behind by Calgary's Paul Byron on Sunday night. Sedin crumpled to the ice after getting hit in the numbers by Byron in the Vancouver zone with 2:44 left in the period. The Vancouver trainer rushed to Sedin's side and immediately signaled for a stretcher. Sedin was fitted with a neck brace and placed on a backboard.

Centers Kyle Turris and Jason Spezza scored during the shootout as the Senators closed their season with a 3-2 victory over the playoff-bound Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday night. Turris and Spezza both beat Penguins backup goaltender Jeff Zatkoff. "It's obviously a nice way for us to finish," said Spezza, the Senators' captain.

NHL-Highlights of Saturday's National Hockey League games
(Sat, 12 Apr 2014 22:40:51 PDT)
- - - Bruins 4, Sabres 1 David Krejci scored twice as the Boston Bruins clinched the National Hockey League's Presidents' Trophy and home ice advantage throughout the playoffs with a victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. The victory, in Boston's home regular season finale, ensured the team will finish the regular season with the most points in the league. It is the second President's Trophy for the Bruins since it was first awarded in 1986-87.

NHL Three Stars: Bruins win Presidents' Trophy; Smyth's farewell (Puck Daddy)
(Sat, 12 Apr 2014 21:31:07 PDT)
Considering the season the Oilers have had, this sign from tonight’s game reads super sarcastic.  No. 1 Star: Carey Price, Montreal Canadiens Price was flawless Saturday versus the New York Rangers, stopping 41 shots, and he had to be, as this game went into overtime before Brian Gionta's penalty shot made it a 1-0 overtime victory for the Habs : With the win, the Canadiens leapfrogged the Lightning, their first-round playoff opponent, for home-ice advantage. Tampa Bay has a chance to win it back in their season-closer on Sunday.  No. 2 Star: Jakub Voracek, Philadelphia Flyers Voracek was in on all three of the Flyers' regulation goals versus the Pittsburgh Penguins, scoring twice, then assisting on Claude Giroux's goal late in the third. It was a typically wacky Battle of Philadelphia, with scuffles galore and high drama: the Flyers and Pens traded goals in the final two minutes before going to overtime to settle things. There, Mark Streit scored to give the Flyers a 4-3 win and a 4-1 win in the season series . No. 3 Star: Joe Pavelski, San Jose Sharks Pavelski became just the third player this season to hit 40 goals in the Sharks' 3-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes , scoring early in the first period. Then, for good measure, he added another midway through the frame. Honorable mention:   The Boston Bruins beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 , clinching the Presidents' Trophy in the process. David Krejci scored twice... Craig Anderson made 28 saves for the shutout and Jason Spezza scored the game-winner in a 1-0 Ottawa Senators' victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs ... Ryan Johansen's 33rd of the year was the deciding goal as the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the Florida Panthers, 3-2 ... Mike Fisher's 3 assists led the way as the Nashville Predators beat the Chicago Blackhawks 7-5 on the strength of a five-goal third period... Devante Smith-Pelly scored his second of the season and the shootout winner as the Anaheim Ducks edged the Los Angeles Kings, 4-3... Prior to announcing his retirement to the public, Ryan Smyth told his teammates, in a video aired on Hockey Night in Canada Saturday night: The Oilers won their final game for Smyth, 5-2 over the Canucks . Taylor Hall had 3 assists in the victory. Sadly, the Oilers couldn't get Smyth a goal, despite an absurd 7:10 of powerplay time. Did You Know? James Reimer's not long for Toronto: James Reimer on tonight being perhaps his final game as a Leaf: "There definitely were some thoughts like that." — Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) April 13, 2014 Dishonorable mention:  Zack Kassian scored with 10 seconds to go in Ryan Smyth's final game. As if Edmonton needed more reasons to hate him... If the Blackhawks are hoping to repeat as Stanley Cup champions, they may want to tighten up defensively. I understand they're not really playing for much these days, but seriously, when you surrender five goals against to the Nashville Predators, you need to tighten up... Mark Streit's overtime winner is exactly the sort of goal you don't want to see Marc-Andre Fleury giving up the weekend before the playoffs:  

Senators-Penguins Preview (The Associated Press)
(Sat, 12 Apr 2014 21:23:41 PDT)
The Pittsburgh Penguins have been playing games inconsequential to their playoff seed for some time now. They'll get the last out of the way Sunday at home as they try to win two of three in the season series with the Ottawa Senators, who seek a season-high fifth straight win before watching the postseason. The Penguins (51-24-6), who lost 4-3 in overtime at home to Philadelphia on Saturday, will play the Blue Jackets in the first round after Columbus secured its position with a win over Florida. I think there were some things from today that I think were good," Sidney Crosby told the team's official website.

The Ottawa Senators were more than happy to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 1-0 Saturday night at home o extend their win streak to four games. ''It was important for us to try and win this hockey game and send the fans home happy in the last home game,'' Ottawa's Jason Spezza said. Obviously we've done some better things of late, but we would have liked to do that earlier in the season.'' Spezza scored the lone goal, and Craig Anderson stopped 27 shots for his fourth shutout of the season as the Senators played their final home game of the regular season. Ottawa wraps up the season Sunday against Pittsburgh.

OTTAWA -- Center Jason Spezza helped push the Ottawa Senators over the hump that was the Toronto Maple Leafs before Saturday night. Goaltender Craig Anderson chipped in with a pretty good shove himself. Spezza's 23rd goal of the season at 7:35 of the second period stood as the lone tally while Anderson made 28 saves in a 1-0 victory in front of 20,500 fans at Canadian Tire Centre. The Leafs had won the previous six games between the teams, dating back to last season.
