First-round back-to-backs favor NHL teams with 2 top goalies
Craig Berube remembers playing plenty of back-to-backs in the playoffs and actually likes them. While back-to-backs are no longer common in the NHL postseason, the urgency to finish it this year means each first-round series has one set of them scheduled. ''I think it's a benefit for any team to have it,'' said Carolina coach Rod Brind'Amour, who successfully split his qualifying round back-to-back between Petr Mrazek and James Reimer to complete a sweep of the Rangers.

Hockey is trending to look like the Vancouver Canucks, with smaller players and more skill, speed and offense.

The Colorado Avalanche have one of the NHL's most dynamic offenses, led by Hart Trophy finalist Nathan MacKinnon.

Flyers hope top seed in East leads to Stanley Cup title
Alain Vigneault often has a dash of James Bond in him when he closes his news conferences. The Philadelphia Flyers have both shaken and stirred their way to plenty of wins this season in Vigneault's first season on the bench. Here's the twist - the Flyers were the hottest team in the NHL entering the pandemic break and the best team coming out of it, good enough to earn a No. 1 seed and a series with the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

GM Rutherford looks to retool after "puzzling" Pens exit
Jim Rutherford is not ready to blow up the core that's led the Pittsburgh Penguins to three Stanley Cups in a little more than a decade. The issue isn't just that the Penguins have lost nine of their past 10 postseason games.

Offseason goals for Wild topped by goaltending improvement
The Minnesota Wild returned home from the Western Conference bubble with regret, dismay and another postseason defeat. Despite the spark that was on display after the change in head coaches up until the pandemic put the sport on a four-plus-month pause, their performance in the qualifying round against Vancouver provided more evidence that this is an incomplete if competitive team.
