Bruins will add assistant coach, tap Bradley to run draft board

David Pastrnak will be a better player for some of his struggles in his first Stanley Cup playoff experience over the last couple of weeks. The 20-year-old right winger might even be a better player from the experience for Team Czech Republic when he joins them next month for the world championships in Europe. Pastrnak did have a couple of goals in the six game series against the Ottawa Senators and it wasn’t a complete disaster for the youngster the first time around, but he also wasn’t quite up to the lofty standards he set this season when he posted 34 goals and 70 points. “It was different, but to be honest I loved it. It hurt [to lose] but every win felt unbelievable,” said Pastrnak. “It

Penguins humble Capitals in Game 2, as Holtby is pulled

The Pittsburgh Penguins took a 2-0 series lead in their second-round showdown with the Washington Capitals on Saturday night, with a 6-2 victory. Meanwhile, the Capitals saw their Vezina Trophy-nominated goalie, Braden Holtby, pulled after two periods while Marc-Andre Fleury (34 saves on 36 shots) outplayed him – again.

WASHINGTON (AP) Vezina Trophy winner Braden Holtby was yanked out of the Washington Capitals’ net during Game 2 of their series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, replaced in goal by Philipp Grubauer to start the third period Saturday night. The Capitals began the final period trailing 3-1 after Holtby allowed three goals in the second. Things did not get much better with Grubauer back there: He allowed a goal on the second shot he faced, and another on the fourth, making Pittsburgh’s advantage 5-2.

Playoff Roundup: Pageau’s career day propels Senators to 2OT win over Rangers

Ottawa Senators forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau had five career playoff goals coming into Saturday afternoon. Prior to the big-money goal, a 2-on-1 snipe over the glove hand of goalie Henrik Lundqvist at 2:54 of the extra extra frame, Pageau spent the afternoon cashing in against the Rangers, netting a first period goal to knot the game at one, then a pair of late third-period tallies that tied things at five and sent the game into OT. “It’s always fun to score here in front of our fans,” Pageau said.

Mark Scheifele on ball hockey, Winnipeg’s season, working with Adam Oates (Puck Daddy Q&A)

The setting was always Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena for Mark Scheifele’s ball hockey fantasy Stanley Cup, and he was always his idol, Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman. “It was a fight between me and my brother who could be Steve Yzerman,” Scheifele says.

Scott Darling trade ‘worth the risk’ for Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes made a somewhat surprising move on Friday night when they acquired goaltender Scott Darling from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a third-round draft pick in 2017. Goaltending has been a major thorn in the Hurricanes’ side for several years now, while Darling has probably earned the opportunity to be a No. 1 goalie in the NHL after performing extremely well as Corey Crawford‘s backup in Chicago. The risk for the Hurricanes is that Darling will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1, and they will have to get him signed to a new contract before then to avoid potentially losing him (and the third-round pick they sent to Chicago) for nothing.
