The Minnesota Wild Move On To The Second Round Of The Stanley Cup Playoffs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The Minnesota Wild advance to round 2 of the Stanley Cup playoffs and will play the Chicago Blackhawks after defeating the St. Louis Blues 4-1 today and winning the series 4-2.

What a year for the Wild, Mike Yeo deserves much credit as well as the players.

As for the Blues, probably a huge disappointment for their fanbase, another year of not coming close to expectations.

via Katie Strang tweets,

DET's Henrik Zetterberg on goaltender Petr Mrazek: "He plays with confidence and he gives us confidence.

"Mike Babcock, asked about team's ability to neutralize Stamkos: "We're not playing Stammer, we're playing Tampa Bay."

via Joe Smith tweets,

At tday's team meeting, a few #tblightning players who have overcome 3-1, 3-2 series deficits spoke up. Said Hedman: "We know we can do it."

Cooper: "We've been together nine months now. This is as good a group as I've ever coached. Would be a shame for it all to end (Monday)."

Cooper said #redwings interfere more than any team in league: "The old saying if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. They do it to a 'T'"

Afternoon Line- Scott Burnside On The Pittsburgh Penguins

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Both Malkin and Crosby share responsibility for the disappointments of the past several years and, even though it is an interesting exercise to discuss what might happen should one of those players be traded, the bottom line is they will only leave Pittsburgh of their own accord given they both possess no-trade/no-movement clauses.

What remains to be seen, though, is whether this is a team that can reclaim glory with their superstars eating up $18.2 million in cap space.

In the coming weeks, expect discussion about whether a Phil Kessel or Dion Phaneuf or any number of skilled but expensive and/or problematic wingers would cure what ails the Pens. These are the storylines that dog every middle of the road team looking for a magic combination. They are the storylines that are now very much the reality of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

On An Off Day

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

The Wings did not practice today and Babock informed the media no injuries from last night.

On the Tampa side, this from Bryan Burns of the Lightning website,

Plenty of things that went right for the Lightning in the regular season have suddenly disappeared. The three biggest?


The 2014-15 Tampa Bay Lightning scored more regular-season goals than any other team in franchise history.

The previous record of 246 established in 2005-06 was shattered when the Bolts netted 259 goals this season. Tampa Bay had more goals than any other team in the NHL (Dallas, with 257, was second) and averaged 3.16 per game.

In the playoffs, however, the Lightning attack has been systematically dismantled by a veteran Detroit team that has given the Bolts little room to maneuver on the ice.

The Red Wings were a middle-of-the-road defensive team during the regular season, their 2.57 goals-against average ranking 15th in the league.

Aside from Game 2 when the Lightning put five on the board, which, increasingly, is looking more and more like an anomaly, the Bolts haven’t been able to generate much of anything against Detroit in the postseason though. Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek, who split time with Jimmy Howard during the regular season and wasn’t handed the starting job for good until the conclusion of the regular season, has shut out Tampa Bay twice in his postseason debut.

But in reality, Mrazek hasn’t had to work all that hard as the players in front of him have done an outstanding job limiting the Lightning’s chances on goal. And when the Bolts do get something on frame, Mrazek has been steady in cleaning it up.
