Bruins in for first round challenge with Detroit (Comcast SportsNet New England)
BOSTON The Bruins have known their opponent would be the Detroit Red Wings since last weekend, but theyll finally get to take the ice Friday night as the last two teams to jump into the Stanley Cup playoffs. NHL realignment means the Bruins and Red Wings certainly wont be going another 57 years between playoff appearances, and thats a good thing for a league looking for sexy, ratings-grabbing playoff games. The Bruins knew the new realignment would make it entirely realistic that the Stanley Cup road will have to go through both Detroit and Montreal before getting out of the Atlantic Division. The speed and skill of young speed-burners like Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar and Tomas Jurco will give the Bs defense problems if theyre allowed to roam free, and players like Pavel Datsyuk, Niklas Kronwall, Johan Franzen and Daren Helm are all past champions that will make sure Detroit is a tough out.

Varlamov, Avalanche ready for postseason return (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
With the Stanley Cup Playoffs underway, CSNWashington.com is previewing each of the eight first round matchups. For the first time in four years, former Capitals goalie Semyon Varlamov will start in the Stanley Cup Playoffs as the Colorado Avalanche open their first round series Thursday against the Minnesota Wild. The Avalanche, who began the season with a League-best 14-2-0 record and closed out the campaign with an 8-3-3 mark over the final 14 games, went on to win a franchise-best 52 games and the Central Division title. Varlamov earned 41 of those victories, the most in the NHL this season.

Oates on Ovechkin: 'He's our identity' (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
When Adam Oates took over as head coach of the Capitals two summers ago he knew that his longevity in Washington was tied directly to his success with Alex Ovechkin. At the time, Ovechkin was a broken player, frustrated by his own predictability and disenchanted with the limited responsibilities he was given under Dale Hunter. He moved Ovechkin from left wing to right wing in an attempt to get him the puck more often and in better areas to score goals. Ovechkin scored goals from all over the ice, went on a goal-scoring tear in the second half of last season and won the Hart Trophy as the NHLs Most Valuable Player.

Brooks Laich: 'We have to have an identity' (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
Lets face it: Brooks Laich likes to talk. This is a man who has spent 10 years as a member of the Washington Capitals. As the longest tenured pro athlete in D.C., he has seen the team rise from the ashes of mediocrity to a legitimate Stanley Cup contender. Today, the Capitals are at a crossroads and Laich has some strong opinions on why and how the team has cascaded from the top of the NHL mountain with 121 points in 2009-10 to a non-playoff team with 90 points in 2013-2014.

Braden Holtby says changes resulted in second guessing (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
It doesnt take a degree in linguistics to realize there was a disconnect, or at the very least a disagreement, in the way Adam Oates wanted Braden Holtby to play this season and the way goaltending coach Olie Kolzig wanted him to play. Its obviously been well documented the changes that we tried, Holtby said. So, at the start of training camp, Kolzig worked with Holtby, Michal Neuvirth and Philipp Grubauer, asking them to challenge less and play a more controlled game, slightly deeper in their creases. Of the three goalies, Holtby, 24, seemed to struggle the most with the changes.

Boudreau, Ducks look to re-write history vs. Stars (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
With the Stanley Cup Playoffs set to begin Wednesday, CSNWashington.com is previewing each of the eight first round matchups. Stop us if youve heard this one before: A Bruce Boudreau coached hockey team finished atop its conference, was the highest scoring team in the NHL, has two of the games premier scorers and enters the postseason with questions regarding its starting goaltending. No doubt, its a familiar script for Boudreau, who once again leads a dominant regular season club into hockeys second season, as the Anaheim Ducks prepare to face the Dallas Stars in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Ducks enter the postseason as Pacific Division champions for the second straight season, but Anaheim will be looking for a better playoff result after falling at home in Game 7 of last years first round series against the Detroit Red Wings.

Bruins' Bergeron gets boost from Olympics (The Associated Press)
For Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron, the 2014 Olympics were about more than winning a second gold medal with Canada. The Sochi Games were a confidence boost that he harnessed when he returned to perhaps the best of his 10 NHL seasons. The top-seeded Bruins need Bergeron to maintain his outstanding play when they face the eighth-seeded Detroit Red Wings in their first-round playoff series beginning Friday night. ''It's the best I've seen him, period,'' Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said.

Who should the Caps consider buying out? (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
Whether its George McPhee or someone else, the Capitals general manager this summer is going to need to decide whether or not to use the one remaining compliance buyout left over from last years lockout settlement. This summer the Capitals have at least three buyout candidates forward Brooks Laich [three years, $4.5 million cap hit] and defensemen Mike Green [one year, $6.083 million] and John Erskine [one year, $1.962 million] -- and can begin the process 48 hours after the final game of the Stanley Cup Final.

Two days since owner Ted Leonsis began his comprehensive review of what transpired this season and began listening to appropriate voices to determine what steps are necessary to get the Capitals back to being a Stanley Cup contender. At the conclusion of Leonsis comprehensive review he will determine whether George McPhee will be renewed for an 18th season as Capitals general manager and whether Adam Oates returns for a third season behind the Capitals bench.

Florida Panthers win 2014 NHL Draft lottery, leaping over Buffalo (Puck Daddy)
The Buffalo Sabres had a 25 percent chance of taking the top spot in the 2014 NHL Draft Lottery, which would have been a nice consolation prize after a terrible, imploding season. Alas, they got more sand kicked in their face – Floridian sand. The Florida Panthers, with an 18.8 percent chance of getting the top pick, won the NHL Draft Lottery on Tuesday night. Last season the Panthers had the best odds and fell to No. 2 overall, taking forward Aleksander Barkov. We're looking to continue to build on our core talent of the players,said Travis Viola, VP of hockey operations. We're anxious to put a winner in Florida, but if we take our time and make a really good plan with Mr. Dale Tallon and Mr. Bill Torey … a little slower pace than rushing right away. It's the second time the Panthers will have the first overall pick, the last time coming in 1994 when Florida took defenseman Ed Jovanovski at No. 1. Will it be another defenseman at No. 1 for Florida? Defenseman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts is one of three players expected to go at the top of the draft, along with Sam Reinhart and Sam Bennett. The rest of the lottery field: 2. Buffalo Sabres 3. Edmonton Oilers 4. Calgary Flames 5. New York Islanders 6. Vancouver Canucks 7. Carolina Hurricanes 8. Toronto Maple Leafs 9. Winnipeg Jets 10. Anaheim Ducks (from Ottawa Senators) 11. Nashville Predators 12. Phoenix Coyotes 13. Washington Capitals.

Dustin Penner: 'I'll entertain any and all offers' (Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic)
From the time he arrived in Washington following a March 4 trade from Anaheim, Capitals left wing Dustin Penner seemed to have one foot on a plane back to southern California. So it was only fitting that Penner, who will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, had an early exit interview with Capitals coach Adam Oates and was on a flight back to the left coast Monday night. I was here for a short time, but it doesn't ease the pain of not making the playoffs any less, said Penner, who won the Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007 and the Los Angeles Kings in 2012. Penner said the Capitals power play, which finished in a first-place tie with the Penguins at 23.4 percent, impressed him, but added the Caps relied too heavily on it.

We need to know whats going on here and whats going to be here, Grabovski said Tuesday. Grabovski, who signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Capitals last summer, is one of three unrestricted free agents on the Caps roster.
