Wings' last shot at glory Helene Elliott Los Angeles Times The cardinal rule of NHL forecasting is never pick the San Jose Sharks to win the Stanley Cup. They've been a popular selection the past few seasons but they've tripped themselves up every spring — and will this season too. The Vancouver Canucks seem to be the consensus pick in the West, but their lack of team toughness leaves them vulnerable....

After a monthlong search, the Washington Capitals have decided who will be the next to lead them behind the bench and in the front office. Washington named Brian MacLellan general manager and Barry Trotz coach Monday, giving the organization familiarity and experience, respectively, as it aims to usher in a new era. MacLellan, 55, has been a fixture in Washington for the past 13 seasons, serving first as a pro scout, then director of player personnel...

Cursed Kings will win Helene Elliott Los Angeles Times Hell will freeze over, because the Kings will win the Stanley Cup. Yes, the cursed Kings, the team that has made exactly one previous visit to the Cup finals. They're bigger than the Devils, they hit harder, they have a better defense and coach Darryl Sutter has been to the finals before, losing in seven games with the 2004 Flames. Unlike the Kings' first three series, this one is likely to go long, but the result will be the same.

The Navy hockey team celebrated its best season ever in 2014, winning the Eastern Collegiate Hockey Association title and reaching the quarterfinals of last month's ACHA Division 1 National Championships. On Tuesday, the team got a reward. The team was treated to a day with hockey's greatest prize, the Stanley Cup, thanks to a program from Discover credit card that allows more than just each year's NHL champion to spend a day with Lord Stanley's Cup. “I am so proud of the incredible season these young men had,” Navy coach Mike Fox said in a news release.

Hawks' Buff too tough Helene Elliott Los Angeles Times Remember this name: Dustin Byfuglien (pronounced BUFF-lin). If the Blackhawks' beefy power forward can be as effective as he was throughout their Western Conference final sweep of the Sharks, the Stanley Cup will reside in Chicago for the first time since 1961. Remember this name: Chris Pronger. Though the Flyers defenseman isn't as mean as he used to be, he's still menacing and might be the only man strong enough to budge Byfuglien away from the net. That could stop Chicago's top line of Byfuglien, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews or create chances for Kane and the magnificent Toews.

The puck drops on the NHL season on Thursday night when the Boston Bruins crank up their 2010-11 Stanley Cup banner to the rafters before their home opener against the Philadelphia Flyers at the TD Garden. The Capitals had the skills to hold such a celebration this fall, but they didn't show as much heart and grit as the Tampa Bay Lightning in last year's playoffs and were swept to Washington-area dance clubs after Round 2. Washington general manager George McPhee resisted the urge to make radical changes to his roster.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Stanley Cup has been won by many different kinds of teams through the years, but when the New Jersey Devils captured their first Cup Saturday night by sweeping the Detroit Red Wings, it was special.The Devils, who won, 5-2, in Game 4, triumphed not with stars, but with teamwork.Yes, they were led offensively by Conn Smythe Trophy winner Claude Lemieux, who said with a laugh, "Imagine being the most hated man in hockey and having your name on this trophy." And, yes, they were led defensively by Scott Stevens and bolstered by goaltender Martin Brodeur, whose postseason goals-against average was a measly 1.68.

Blasting a home run onto Eutaw Street, just shy of the Warehouse past right field at Camden Yards, is a big deal, akin to a splash landing in McCovey Cove at AT&T Park. An asphalt landing on Eutaw Street earns players a commemorative plaque along the street with the player's name, team and the date and distance of the home run. In the ballpark's 21-year history, 68 players have accomplished this feat. Only one has had his plaque feature a misspelling. And it's a two-time Orioles All-Star, no less.

Feeling a little blue Gary R. Blockus The Morning Call In a severely shortened season, health will be more important than ever in the quest to hoist Lord Stanley's Cup. Look for the Blueshirts and Blue Notes to tangle in the final games for hockey's Holy Grail. The Rangers, with newly acquired Rick Nash ready to ride shotgun for Brad Richards, have to be considered the team to beat in the Eastern Conference. With Henrik Lundqvist in goal, there could be no stopping the Broadway Blueshirts.

NHLPA wins, fans lose Harvey Fialkov Sun Sentinel NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and the greedy owners got their 50-50 hockey-related revenue split, a 7 percent decrease for the players. But NHLPA leader Donald Fehr got the better of the deal on maximum length of contracts, next year's $64.3 million salary cap and a more defined pension plan. The empty rinks stuck it to arena workers and ancillary businesses that depend on game-day patronage. Bettman stuck a knife into the backs of new TV partners by wiping out 480 games, including All-Star weekend and the Winter Classic.

No threat to Classic Chris Kuc Chicago Tribune A debate rages between the optimistic side of me (rarely used) and the pessimistic side (hello, old friend) when it comes to the NHL lockout. I'd say cooler heads will eventually prevail, but neither side is looking particularly frosty at this point. So I'm putting the over/under on the end of the lockout at Dec. 1. It's right around then that many of the players will realize they haven't received a paycheck in a while and the league will start eyeballing the possibility of losing the big-time payday of the Winter Classic on Jan. 1 at cavernous Michigan Stadium.

Canucks take it in 6 Helene Elliott Los Angeles Times It's incredible to think that no team based in Canada has won the Stanley Cup since 1993, when a certain illegal stick carried by a certain member of the Kings reversed the tide after the Kings had won the opener and launched the Canadiens to a five-game series win.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The underappreciated New Jersey Devils, whom few gave a chance of beating the more talented Detroit Red Wings, completed a four-game sweep of the Red Wings with a 5-2 victory last night and danced the champions' dance, holding the Stanley Cup aloft for everyone to see."All that stuff about how we play hockey can now go in the trash," said Claude Lemieux, who was voted the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the Most Valuable Player throughout the playoffs. "If you don't like our style, well too bad. You can go watch a show somewhere else."

Slide over, Pekka Rinne. We now have a new best save of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs courtesy of Boston's Tim Thomas, who robbed Tampa Bay's Steve Downie with a sprawling paddle save in the third period Monday. That "lucky" save helped the Bruins secure a 3-2 series lead in the Eastern Conference finals. After a shot from the point missed the net and caromed off the end boards toward the crease, the Bruins' All-Star goalie dove back from the top of his paint and rejected Downie's point-blank shot.
