Bruins late heroics effectively end Florida's playoff hopes (Puck Daddy)
(Tue, 31 Mar 2015 23:16:05 PDT)
The Florida Panthers didn’t really ‘need’ a win to stay within the realm of playoff possibilities in the Eastern Conference. With a loss to the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night, the Panthers still technically have a chance to make the playoffs. But it’s not looking good following a 3-2 regulation loss to Boston. With 1:09 left in the third period Bruins forward Milan Lucic fired the laser … err wrister past Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo, which prevented Florida (which came into the game four points back of Boston with six games left) from gaining any sort of ground or limiting losses with a possible overtime or shootout defeat. Said captain Willie Mitchell to the Miami Herald: “We needed a win. That was it,” Willie Mitchell said in soft, reserved tones. “On to the next one, you know? We’ll be playing our tails off doing everything we can to put points on the board. That’s all we can control. On to the next one.” I still can’t get over the fact that Willie Mitchell is the captain of this group, in the most awesome way possible, but that’s another story for another day. It was a nice effort from the Panthers, a team coming off back-to-back dreadful seasons, to produce a year few saw coming – one that went into late March for their non-playoff fate to be sealed. Per the Miami Herald again: “We still have a mathematical chance,” coach Gerard Gallant said. “It’s probably going to take five wins. Can we do it? We just played five outstanding games on the road, went 2-2-1 and could have won all five. We’re going to work hard, battle and see what happens.” And as the for Bruins, the win was doubly important. Not only did it basically end Florida’s chances of making the playoffs, it kept Boston three points clear of Ottawa with five games left to play. The Senators hamburgled their way to another win over the Detroit Red Wings and have six contests left. The best case scenario for the Bruins is to try to run out the clock on the Senators. Both teams don’t play one another again. From the Boston Globe: “We bounced back,” Zdeno Chara said. “We didn’t play the way we wanted to play in the second and we knew we needed to bounce back. We needed to be much better than we were, and we were. We found a way to be more effective, and we were more ourselves and we found a way to win with two big goals." And of course it was Lucic who came through – this time playing with rookies Ryan Spooner and David Pastrnak, a sign of the Bruins’ strange mixture this season of veterans and youth that has all been inconsistent but somehow has gotten the job done. Per CBS Local Boston: Against Florida, Julien said he was only trying to keep Spooner’s line away from one Florida trio – the one with Aleksander Barkov centering Jonathan Huberdeau and Jaromir Jagr. That meant more opportunities for Lucic, Spooner and Pastrnak to get involved in the third period of a game the Bruins trailed after 40 minutes. And the Bruins found a way … as the Bruins always do. As for the Panthers, nice try. Wait til next year kids. - - - - - - - Josh Cooper is an editor for Puck Daddy on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Mark Stone and the Ottawa Senators found a way to keep pace in the playoff hunt. Stone scored the final goal in a shootout, and the Senators beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 on Tuesday night. Mika Zibanejad and Kyle Turris also had shootout goals for the Senators. Clarke MacArthur scored in the third period and Andrew Hammond, who missed the previous two games because of a lower-body injury, made 16 saves.
Lucic's late goal helps Bruins beat Panthers, 3-2 (The Associated Press)
(Tue, 31 Mar 2015 20:27:15 PDT)
The only thing more critical than winning for the Boston Bruins was doing it in regulation. Milan Lucic scored the tiebreaking goal with 1:09 left as Boston rallied to beat the Florida Panthers 3-2 Tuesday night and maintained its hold on the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Florida was one of two teams with a realistic chance at catching the Bruins, who held a three-point lead on Ottawa and were four points up on the Panthers entering Tuesday. The Panthers could have picked up at least a point by taking the game to overtime, but Lucic's goal sent them home six points out of the playoffs with five games remaining.

Panthers-Bruins Preview (The Associated Press)
(Tue, 31 Mar 2015 07:04:13 PDT)
The Boston Bruins may have more to worry about than just the team right behind them in the Eastern Conference standings. The Florida Panthers are also in position to catch the Bruins, and they'll try to end a seven-game losing streak in Boston in Tuesday night's critical matchup. Boston (38-25-13) holds the East's last wild-card spot with 89 points - three more than Ottawa, which has a game in hand. The Panthers (35-26-15) are four points behind the Bruins after beating the Senators 4-2 on the road Sunday.

Neither the Detroit Red Wings nor the Ottawa Senators are winding down the regular season in particularly strong form. The Senators are the more desperate team, and will try to halt a three-game skid Tuesday night in Detroit while also closing the gap with Boston for the Eastern Conference's final wild-card spot. Ottawa's 0-2-1 span has coincided with an injury to goaltender Andrew Hammond, who had been 14-0-1 with a 1.58 goals-against average as a starter prior to allowing five goals on 22 shots in Thursday's 5-1 home loss to the New York Rangers. Craig Anderson faced the Panthers and also suffered a 4-3 overtime loss in Toronto on Saturday.

Fantasy All-Access: Blue Jackets' Atkinson heats up (NHL)
(Mon, 30 Mar 2015 09:05:00 PDT)
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Ryan Johansen is the only NHL player with two point streaks of 10-plus games and has 29 points in those 23 games (1.26 points per game). He has 37 points in the other 52 games played this season (0.71 points per game). Cam Atkinson, Columbus Blue Jackets (owned in 15 percent of Yahoo Leagues) -- The Blue Jackets have scored 27 goals during a six-game win streak, which has made them a great place to find fantasy gems. One of those finds is Atkinson, who has five goals, four assists, 15 shots on goal and a plus-7 rating while playing over 16 minutes a game during the winning streak.

What We Learned: Should the NY Rangers actually scare anyone? (Puck Daddy)
(Mon, 30 Mar 2015 05:09:58 PDT)
(Hello, this is a feature that will run through the entire season and aims to recap the weekend’s events and boils those events down to one admittedly superficial fact or stupid opinion about each team. Feel free to complain about it.) Henrik Lundqvist returned to the lineup on Saturday for the first time since Feb. 2, meaning he missed more than a month and a half. On Feb. 2, the Rangers earned their 62nd point of the season in just their 48th game, which is a pretty good rate (a pace for almost 106 points for the season) but only good enough for third in the division and a tie for seventh in the conference. Losing Lundqvist was supposed to have been a disaster of near-biblical proportions. Lundqvist is perhaps the single most important player in the league in terms of what he brings to his team every night, in the form of reliably all-time-great goaltending; the last time he was south of .920 for the season, a rate touched only 134 times in league history, Barack Obama had been in office for three months. Thus, losing him for any length of time could have proved disastrous. A month and a half might have been a death sentence. And in previous years, maybe it would have been. But Alain Vigneault has done such a good job coaching, and Cam Talbot such a good job in Lundqvist's relief, that the Rangers instead racked up another 39 points in his absence, this time in just 25 games. It's a pace for about 128 points over 82 games. This is an impossible accomplishment. To go 18-4-3 without one of the four or five greatest goalies of all time, especially given how good the top of the East has been this season, is remarkable. The Rangers catapulted from the middle of the East to the top of the league without Henrik Lundqvist. Not even the most indefatigable optimist could have seen this coming. A lot of this, of course, is down to the play of Cam Talbot, who proved himself probably the best backup in the league during this stretch. I often find it difficult to determine whether a No. 2 goaltender is actually good; it's just so hard to judge. They only play once every few weeks in a lot of cases, and often against the teams that aren't very good, the ones for which coaches think to themselves that they could put just about anyone out there and still wring at least a point from the contest. Being a backup is challenging in its own way, sure, but for Talbot to do this over more than a six-week stretch was unforeseeable. Playing 33 games in a season is not something you often ask of your backups, and you never expect their performance to surpass that of the guy in front of you. And look, the guy was .941 in 21 appearances last season, so it's not like anyone thought he was bad, but that goes back to his competition: The Oilers twice, the Wild twice, the Islanders twice, the Leafs twice, etc. For the most part he wasn't drawing the difficult assignments. What he's had to deal with since the Lundqvist injury is a lot tougher; 13 of his 23 starts were against current playoff teams, and 12 were on the road. His .929 over that stretch (stopping 653 of 703) would be almost slam-dunk Vezina worthy if carried over an entire season. Looking at this chart of save percentage in all situations, it isn't too hard to guess when Talbot took over the job:

NHL Three Stars: Jagr nets a pair; Tavares hands out three helpers (Puck Daddy)
(Sun, 29 Mar 2015 20:02:12 PDT)
No. 1 Star: Jaromir Jagr, Florida Panthers He may be 43-years old, but Jagr still has it. No. 68 scored twice, including the eventual game-winner as the Panthers doubled up the Ottawa Senators 4-2. Jagr is now two points away from Ron Francis for 4th all-time (1,796) & 11 goals from Marcel Dionne for 4th all-time (731). His second goal came in vintage Jagr fashion: No. 2 Star: Jason Chimera, Washington Capitals Chimera scored twice 2:59 apart in the third period to break a 2-2 tie and guide the Capitals to a 5-2 win over the New York Rangers. Chimera hadn’t scored in 21 games for Washington. Alex Ovechkin had a pair of his own and now sits one goal away from his sixth consecutive 50-goal season. The Capitals have now won four of their last six games. No. 3 Star: John Tavares, New York Islanders A wild first period saw six goals in the opening 9:54, but things calmed down as the Islanders edged the Detroit Red Wings 5-4. Tavares recorded three assists as New York won for the first time in seven tries at Nassau Coliseum. The Islanders capitalized on three of their four power play opportunities and are now tied with Pittsburgh for second in the Metropolitan Division. The Penguins hold a game in hand. Honorable Mention : David Pastrnak’s goal 4:23 into overtime gave the Boston Bruins a crucial second point in their 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Pastrnak assisted earlier on Ryan Spooner’s seventh of the season. Tuukka Rask made 30 saves as the Bruins now sit three points ahead of Ottawa and four ahead of Florida for the East’s final wildcard spot: Jiri Hudler tallied his 28th of the season and assisted on two others as the Calgary Flames got by the Nashville Predators 5-2 and swept the three-game season series. Lance Bouma put home a pair and Michael Ferland scored his first career NHL goal in the win … John Gibson made 26 saves and Francois Beauchemin’s 10th of the season early in the third period stood as the winner as the Anaheim Ducks beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1. Gibson, who won for the fourth time in five starts, was aided by saves like this one on Adam Henrique: Jonathan Toews’ goal with 30.8 seconds left in regulation snapped a 3-3 tie and helped defeat the Winnipeg Jets 4-3. The win moves Chicago back into the third spot in the Central Division. The Pittsburgh Penguins blew a 2-0 first period lead, but goals from David Perron and Sidney Crosby in the shootout helped them by the San Jose Sharks 3-2. In overtime, Pittsburgh killed off Patric Hornqvist's double minor to help get them to the shootout and their second win in as many days. Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves and birthday boy Max Lapierre was 13-for-14 in the face-off circle.

While the Ottawa Senators hope to bounce back in their quest for a playoff berth, the Florida Panthers are running out of chances in their bid to qualify for only the third time in 17 seasons. With Andrew Hammond's status again uncertain, the Senators will try to avoid their first three-game skid in almost two months with their 16th win in 20 games Sunday night against the visiting Panthers. Ottawa appeared to be a longshot to reach the postseason in mid-February when it trailed Boston by 10 points in the Eastern Conference standings. The Senators, though, have reversed their fortunes and put together a 15-2-2 stretch while outscoring opponents 59-39.
NHL Three Stars: In which Tyler Bozak tallies a hat trick vs. Ottawa (Puck Daddy)
(Sat, 28 Mar 2015 22:10:22 PDT)
No. 1 Star: Tyler Bozak, Toronto Maple Leafs Oh, you know, just a Tyler Bozak four-point night against a team in desperate need of points on the playoff bubble. Bozak scored a third-period hat trick and had the primary helper on Eric Brewer’s overtime game-winner in the Leafs’ 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators. No wonder Connor McDavid wants to be him! No. 2 Star: Petr Mrazek, Detroit Red Wings The Red Wings goalie made things interesting between the pipes as Detroit pushes towards the playoffs, shutting out the Tampa Bay Lightning, 4-0. He made 23 saves. No. 3 Star: Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins Crosby, who is totally having an off year, increased his hold on the Art Ross by scoring a goal and assisting on two others in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 3-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes. Honorable Mention: Filip Forsberg trolled the Washington Capitals with a goal and two assists as the Nashville Predators clinched a playoff spot with a 4-3 win. Troy Brouwer had two goals for the Caps. … Milan Lucic scored two first-period goals, one of them controversial, as the Boston Bruins earned a 4-2 win over Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers. … Kyle Palmieri and Andrew Cogliano scored second-period goals as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the New York Islanders, 3-2. Frederik Andersen made 29 saves. … Melker Karlsson and Brent Burns had power-play goals in the San Jose Sharks’ 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Joe Pavelski scored goal No. 36. … Max Pacioretty’s overtime goal gave the Montreal Canadiens a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers, clinching a playoff spot. … Aleksander Barkov scored two goals. … Rookie John Klingberg scored in OT to give the Dallas Stars a 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks, who earned a charity point with a late Radim Vrbata goal. The Carolina Hurricanes topped the New Jersey Devils, 3-1, as Justin Faulk and Eric Staal had goals. … The Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the St. Louis Blues, 4-2, thanks to a Boone Jenner second-period goal. … Nino Niederreiter scored two goals and Devan Dubnyk made 31 saves to improve to 35-11-3 on the season as the Minnesota Wild defeated the LA Kings, 4-1. … Matt Duchene had a goal and two assists and Jarome Iginla had three assists in the Colorado Avalanche’s 5-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres. Andrej Meszaros had two goals. Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk had three assists each. … Did You Know? Iginla had three assists, giving him 1,222 NHL points to pass Jean Beliveau into 40th place all time. Dishonorable Mention: On the Bruin’s first goal, the rebound of a Patrice Bergeron shot went off Lucic's skate and past Lundqvist. No goal on the ice, good goal in video review. … Tuukka Rask left the Bruins’ game with dehydration 10 seconds into the second period. … Victor Hedman was a minus-3. … The Lightning lost defenseman Jason Garrison with an upper-body injury, and center Cedric Paquette was helped off the after sliding into the goal post. … Andy Greene was a minus-3. … Jonathan Quick was pulled at the start of the second period. … Kris Letang was taken to the hospital because “Shane Doan was running around like an idiot.”
Brewer scores winner in OT to lift Maple Leafs past Senators (The Associated Press)

The best game of Tyler Bozak's career sent the Ottawa Senators to a tough loss. Bozak recorded his first career hat trick - scoring all three goals in the third period - and assisted on Eric Brewer's winner in overtime as the Toronto Maple Leafs won 4-3 on Saturday night. ''They got the one to make it 2-1 and they got momentum and anything can happen,'' said Senators goaltender Craig Anderson, who made 27 saves. Mark Stone, Curtis Lazar and Kyle Turris scored for the Senators.
Craig Anderson makes ridiculous blocker saves, somehow blamed for loss (Video) (Puck Daddy)
(Sat, 28 Mar 2015 20:57:01 PDT)
Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson made his first start since March 10, and just his third appearance since Jan. 21, on Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs. It was a start he had to make, with sensation Andrew “Hamburglar” Hammond unable to go due to a “lower body injury.” As usual, Anderson did some things that boggle the mind, like on this sequence above. Guess that blocker hand is feeling better … But Anderson also did something Hammond hasn’t done much of during his time as the starter: He lost a game, and gave up four goals in the process. Eric Brewer’s overtime goal for the Leafs gave them the 4-3 win; the Senators dropped a point behind the Boston Bruins, who defeated the New York Rangers earlier in the day. A check of social media found some Senators fans less than enthused with Anderson, who stopped 27 of 31 shots for a .871 save percentage. (Three of the goals came at even strength.) It continued a rather putrid run for Anderson, who has given up three or more goals in his last six appearances. But can you really blame the guy for this one? The Sens had a 3-1 lead as of 9:30 of the third period. They allowed a Tyler Bozak power play goal and another goal by Bozak at 18:36 of the third to complete his hat trick (!). The Leafs out-possessed all game, skating to a 55.56 percent team Corsi at even strength and an insanely good 61.90 percent Fenwick-for in the third period as Ottawa ceded possession after going up 3-1. Said Anderson, via the Ottawa Sun: "They got the one to 2-1 and they got some momentum. Anything can happen. They start playing with more confidence. The energy starts coming and they are snapping it around. Before you know it, we're fishing the puck out of our net. We had the opportunity and we let it slip.” Anderson, meanwhile, stopped 21 shots in the first two periods and a Joakim Lindstrom penalty shot in the first. The bottom line is that the Senators couldn’t close the deal against a team completely playing out the string, getting unjustifiably sloppy in their own end in front of Anderson. If you think this is on Anderson, think again; and then consider the fact that the guy getting hamburgers tossed on the ice in his honor has given up three or more goals in three of his last four starts.

Despite their recent struggles, the Boston Bruins still are clinging to the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. Boston hopes goaltender Tuukka Rask will be feeling better Sunday as it begins a road-heavy final portion of its schedule against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Bruins (37-25-13) have underachieved for most of this season and are in a tight battle with Ottawa to make an eighth straight playoff appearance. They had a solid effort Saturday, though, scoring three goals in the first period - two from Milan Lucic - to help beat the Metropolitan Division-leading New York Rangers 4-2.

If the Boston Bruins want an example of what's needed in the final few games to make the playoffs, they can simply watch a replay of the first period against the New York Rangers. Milan Lucic scored twice in the first 10 minutes, Carl Soderberg also scored in the first period, and the Bruins spoiled New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's return after a long layoff with a 4-2 victory over the Rangers. The Bruins moved ahead 1-0 less than 2 minutes into the game when a rebound caromed into the net off Lucic's right skate. The Bruins went on to build a 3-0 lead after one.

Andrew Hammond's spectacular run has put the Ottawa Senators into playoff position. Which goaltender potentially carries them over the threshold into the postseason is a mystery heading into Saturday night's game against their provincial archrivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs. Hammond has emerged as an unlikely star over the past six weeks, going 14-0-1 in his first 15 starts to practically will Ottawa (37-25-11) into the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. After shaking off a leg injury in Monday's 5-2 win over San Jose, the rookie finally came undone as he was chased in the second period of Thursday's 5-1 loss to the New York Rangers after allowing five goals on 22 shots.

Huge night of action in the playoffs races on Saturday night, and there are a few teams that can end any uncertainty about their participation in the postseason. * The Canadiens would clinch a playoff berth if they defeat the Panthers in any fashion OR if the Rangers defeat the Bruins in any fashion OR if they get one point against the Panthers AND the Bruins defeat the Rangers in a shootout. * The Ducks would clinch a playoff berth if they defeat the Islanders in any fashion OR if they lose to the Islanders in overtime or a shootout. * The Lightning would clinch a playoff berth if they defeat the Red Wings in any fashion OR if they get one point against the Red Wings AND the Rangers defeat the Bruins in any fashion OR if the Rangers defeat the Bruins in regulation. * The Predators would clinch a playoff berth if they defeat the Capitals in any fashion. The St. Louis Blues can clinch with a win over the Blue Jackets. UPDATE: The NHL lists the Blues' magic number as two, but apparently it's three, as they can't clinch tonight. Here are the current standings. The Death Watch tracks the final Wild Card spot and the teams that are chasing it.
