Prospects Who May Be Available At The #4 Spot In The NHL Draft

from Ansar Khan of Mlive, The Los Angeles Kings, picking second, likely will choose between center Quinton Byfield (Sudbury, OHL) or winger Tim Stuetzle (Mannheim, Germany). The Ottawa Senators, at No. 3, are expected to take whoever is available between Byfield and Stuetzle. That could prompt the Red Wings to decide between centers Marco Rossi of OHL Ottawa (5-9, 183) and Cole Perfetti of OHL Saginaw (5-10, 177), left wing Lucas Raymond of Frolunda in the Swedish League (5-11, 170) o...

Photographing Our Game In The Bubble

from Nick Faris of TheScore, As Bruce Bennett sees it, the NHL playoffs are unfolding inside two kinds of bubbles. One is the stronghold that has housed Point and Varlamov's squads during their time in Toronto and, from the conference finals onward, Edmonton. The second is the scene Bennett observes from his perch in the uppermost deck at Rogers Place, where a camera he positioned high above the visitors' net captured Point's jubilance - and the Islanders' corresponding an...

NHL Short Notes

THREE HARD LAPS * The Stars aim to take a 2-0 series lead in a Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history and are on the hunt for their fifth straight win. * The Lightning, who trail 0-1 in a series for the second time in 2020 (also R2 vs. BOS), enter Game 2 with a 5-0 record this postseason following a loss, outscoring their opponent 16-9 in those games. * Twenty-one-year-old Miro Heiskanen (5-18—23 in 22 GP) looks to continue to climb the NHL all-time list for most poin...

Frans Nielsen Wants To Put 2020 Behind Him

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News, Let’s face it: For both Nielsen and the Red Wings, 2020 was a dud. “It was a tough year,” Nielsen said from his native Denmark, after helping put his kids to bed and thinking about the past season past and the season ahead (whenever that'll be). From a team perspective, the Red Wings finished last in the NHL and won just 17 of 71 games (17-49-5). The Wings weren't very good — and Nielsen didn't help. Nielsen had, statistical...

NHL Short Notes

THREE HARD LAPS * Anton Khudobin made 35 saves to backstop the Stars to victory in Game 1 of the 2020 Stanley Cup Final, 353 days after the regular season began. * Dallas defenseman Joel Hanley became the first blueliner to score his first career NHL goal in the Stanley Cup Final since 1991, when Jim Paek did so against the North Stars. * The Stars franchise owns a 1-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final for the second time in their five all-time trips to the championship series (also 1991).

The Dallas Stars Take Game One Of The Stanley Cup Final

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, Too many Joels, and not enough juice from the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Lightning looked like a team still tired from closing out their conference final just two days earlier, and the Dallas Stars took advantage with a 4-1 victory to take Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. It was two Stars named Joel — Kiviranta and Hanley — who did the damage, sandwiching goals around one by Jamie Oleksiak in the win. Yanni Gourde had the only tally for Tampa. Whi...

The Latest On Alex Pietrangelo’s Contract Status

from Sportsnet, No defenceman will demand quite as much attention when NHL free agency opens on Oct. 9 as Alex Pietrangelo, the St. Louis Blues captain who has spent his entire career with the franchise and helped lead it to its first-ever Stanley Cup last season. Pietrangelo’s seven-year contract, that carried a cap hit of $6.5 million per year, is set to expire this off-season and — valuable to St. Louis as he may be — securing him to a new deal has proven challenging. “There wa...

Before The Puck Drops Tonight

via the NHL PR department, Series Scenarios  * Since the Final went to the best-of-seven format in 1939, the team that has won Game 1 has gone on to capture the Stanley Cup 76.3% of the time (61 of 80 series). Each of the last two champions have rebounded from a Game 1 loss before winning the Cup – Washington in 2018 and St. Louis in 2019. * Teams that take a 1-0 lead in any best-of-seven series have an all-time series record of 490-221 (.689), including a 12-2 mark in 2020. * Tampa Bay i...

Gary Bettman Today

via Pierre LeBrun , Gary Bettman, at his traditional Cup final media conference, says he wouldn't be surprised if next season's Dec. 1 start ``slips'' into later December, maybe into January. But no definitive decisions and/or plans yet. Bettman reiterates what Daly told me and @OvertimeScottB last week: that the NHL still intends to try and play 82 games next season whenever they start... Some rare Bettman speculation: it's ``conceivable'' that next s...

When Will The 2020-21 Season Start?

from Damien Cox at the Toronto Star, The projected Dec. 1 startup date for next season now seems like a pipe dream. Pro leagues unable to fill the stands with paying customers are taking punishing losses, and probably not enough is being said or written about this. That’s not even taking into account the seven clubs that weren’t invited to the expanded playoffs and could end up going eight months or more without playing a single game. It seems likely NHL owners will want to have a...

Will Canadians Watch The Stanley Cup Final?

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, Whoever ends up winning the Stanley Cup, which begins on Saturday between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Dallas Stars, will not have an asterisk attached to their name. Although maybe they should, based on everything they went through and how hard it was to get to this point. Of course the hardest part is still to come: Convincing Canadians to care about a final played between two southern U.S. teams that don’t have a pre-packaged star playe...

Morning Line- Helene Elliott

Without fans there will be no one to uphold the tradition of booing Commissioner Gary Bettman when he hands off the Cup. If he has a sense of humor he’d allow a recording of jeers to be played as he comes out to the ice. -Helene Elliott of the LA Times.  Read more on the NHL and the SCF.

NHL Short Notes

THREE HARD LAPS * Storylines are aplenty heading into the first-ever head-to-head postseason meeting between the Lightning and Stars, with each franchise sharing the same goal of capturing its second Stanley Cup. * The Lighting are back in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 2015, and roughly 17 months after winning the 2018-19 Presidents’ Trophy and being swept by the Blue Jackets in the 2019 First Round.

Afternoon Line- Rick Westhead

Execs with several companies that sponsor NHL teams tell me talks for 2020-21 season deals presuppose teams will at least begin play in bubbles of some sort. Both the NHL & NHLPA hope to avoid this but cross-border travel and crowds at indoor events are unlikely for many months. — Rick Westhead (@rwesthead) September 18, 2020

The Stanley Cup Is Handed To The Winning Captain, Then What?

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN, The Stanley Cup will fly back from Edmonton with the winning team to its playing city. But after that, nobody knows how hockey's most famous trophy will celebrate. The NHL and the Hockey Hall of Fame are weighing options on what to do next with the Cup. Typically, each member of the winning team gets to spend a day with it in a location of his choice. That means the Stanley Cup and Cup Keeper travel thousands of miles, traversing borders and even contine...

Hockey Thoughts During The Stanley Cup Playoffs

from Elliotte riedman of Sportsnet, - Once eliminated, Canucks GM Jim Benning began making his due-diligence calls around the NHL. My sense is he’s trying to see if he can sign his UFAs and work backwards from there. There’s a desire for all of Jacob Markstrom, Christopher Tanev and Tyler Toffoli to return, but there are challenges (although there’s some positivity this week with Toffoli). The Canucks will want flexibility into the expansion draft with Markstrom and Thatcher Demko. My sen...

In order to maintain the safety of players and officials, and in compliance with Canadian government guidelines related to COVID-19, the IIHF Council also approved a proposal to hold the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship without spectators. “This is a tough decision to have to take,...

Goaltending Questions For The Vegas Golden Knights

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com, The Vegas Golden Knights enter the offseason with questions about the futures of goalies Robin Lehner and Marc-Andre Fleury. "We don't have those answers for you right now," general manager Kelly McCrimmon said Wednesday. "But [the] first order of business, I think, in many respects, is to sort that out." Goaltending was not the issue when the Golden Knights lost to the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference Final. Vegas scored eight goal...

There have been five instances of a club forcing a Game 7, outlined below. * The Lightning aim to close out a Conference Finals in Game 6 for the first time.

If we didn't, we'd be stuck with the system the NHL has got going now for other media." -Scott Oake of HNIC.  More from Scott Oake by Mike McIntyre of the...
