Time For The New York Rangers To Play Their Game
from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated, Despite coach Alain Vigneault’s assertions that the Lightning “aren’t dictating” the pace of the series, it’s pretty clear that’s exactly what’s happened during the past two games. The Rangers may be fast, but Tampa Bay has been faster, more insistent on the attack and far more creative. The Lightning are seizing New York’s zone. They’re scoring off the rush. And the Rangers are all but waving he...

Afternoon Line- Damien Cox On The Toronto Maple Leafs And Buffalo Sabres
Both teams were among the NHL’s worst this season and have a lot of questions to be answered. Today, you can’t accurately say either is absolutely on the right track, and in Toronto, Babcock has predicted “pain” for the near future. Both teams have owners who appear to be committed, but don’t have a track record of winning. How they build and develop their respective organizations will determine whether the pieces they already have turn into anything at all, ...

Dear Toronto
What can you expect from Mike Babcock... Honesty, to the point that it may hurt at times. Frustration, come on Mike, play someone else, he deserves the ice time. Fantastic- One of his buzz words. Compassion for the game and his team. Won't disclose much, it stays in the room. If he does disclose, there is a reason behind it. If a player sits, it is because he does not give your team the best chance to win. Bottom line, winning, in the end that is what counts m...

Is Henrik Lundqvist Really “They Guy”?
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, It was a laughing matter to Alain Vigneault, the coach so taken aback by the inquiry at the Rangers’ press availability at the team hotel Thursday that he chuckled both before answering and while saying with a touch of incredulity, “Is that a question?” The question, and I am the one who posed it, was whether Henrik Lundqvist would be in nets for Friday’s Game 4 of the conference final against the Lightning after having ...

Overtime In The Stanley Cup Playoffs
from Tom Jones of the Tampa Bay Tribune, Sudden death. It's the most dramatic moment in all of hockey. In all of sports, really. Is there anything more exciting, more agonizing, more gripping than sudden death overtime in the Stanley Cup playoffs? And the phrase itself — sudden death — is the most provocative in sports. Isn't it fascinating that it is from the perspective of the losing team, not the team that wins? We don't call it sudden victory or sudden life. A...

Frustration In Chicago
from Barry Rozner of the Chicago Daily-Herald, The Ducks stifled the Hawks in the third and yet another power play went for naught when the Hawks failed to get bodies to the net and pucks to the goal. "It's frustrating," Sharp said. "We have to be better. We have to get pucks to the net." Captain Jonathan Toews did not use the word, but he didn't have to. His remarks were short and his temper not far behind. "We're not making any excuses," Toews said. "We'll find ways to be b...

The Anaheim Ducks Beat The Chicago Blackhawks 2-1
from Scott Burnside of ESPN, Instead of letting the past determine their future, the Anaheim Ducks revealed an inner fortitude that now has them halfway to a berth in the Stanley Cup finals. Less than 48 hours after a crushing triple-overtime defeat in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals, the Ducks turned up in one of the loudest, most difficult buildings to play in and came away with a 2-1 victory that gives them a 2-1 series lead. It was not particularly pretty at times. ...

Mike Babcock’s Hockey Night in Canada close-up
The end of Mike Babcock's media tour took him to Sportsnet's Hockey Night in Canada studios, where he sat down with George Strombolopolous for an 11-minute interview that aired during the 1st intermission: If it's possible to make Mike Babcock feel warm and fuzzy, and if it's possible for Mike Babcock to make himself seem fuzzy, this is as close as it's gonna get.
