ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Blues will be casting
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Blues will be casting a wide net in their coaching search.General manager Doug Armstrong fired Mike Yeo after Monday’s 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Craig Berube is the interim coach while Armstrong assembles a list of candidates for the permanent job.“There’s going to be experienced head coaches on that list Dmitry Kulikov Jersey ,” he said at a news conference Tuesday. “There’s going to be European head coaches on that list. College head coaches on that list. Junior head coaches. We’re not going to minimize or limit the scope that we’re going to look at.”Armstrong also did not rule out former St. Louis coach Joel Quenneville, who was fired recently by Chicago. He added that’s unlikely a permanent coach will be hired this season.“It’s possible. I’m not sure it’s probable,” Armstrong said. “It’s not something that we’re going to give updates on. This hockey team’s job is to win games and it’s my job to support this team.”To that end, Hall of Famer Larry Robinson will assist Berube for three weeks to a month because of the inexperienced assistants. The 67-year-old Robinson won a Stanley Cup while coaching the New Jersey Devils.“I think having Larry come in to give Craig someone to talk to who’s been there, done that is good for him,” Armstrong said.Armstrong fired Yeo about two hours after the team’s third shutout loss in four games. It was their fourth loss in five games. The scoreless streak is more than seven periods.At 7-9-3, the Blues are last in the Central Division. Their 17 points rank next to last in the NHL, ahead of only Los Angeles.“The talk I had with him last night was that we had to make a change,” Armstrong said. “I plan to get back to Mike later and thank him and reassure him that he’s paying for the sins of myself and the entire organization. It’s very unfortunate.”The Blues fell one point short of making the playoffs last season and entered this season with hopes of a deep playoff run. They acquired center Ryan O’Reilly in a trade from Buffalo. Armstrong also signed forwards Tyler Bozak Youth Dustin Byfuglien Jersey , Patrick Maroon and David Perron.“Ultimately, it comes back to our record,” Armstrong said. “When he came in, he was able to jell the team and we went on a nice run. We won a playoff round. We had a good feeling about ourselves. That carried over to the next 25 games of the season. Then we hit a rut in December and quite honestly we haven’t gotten out of it.”Berube, a 52-year-old former player, joined the Blues in June 2017. He coached the team’s then-AHL affiliate — the Chicago Wolves — to a 44-19-13 record and a division title during the 2016-17 season.Berube is a midseason replacement for the second time, having succeeded Peter Laviolette with the Flyers three games into the 2013-14 season. In two seasons there, he had a 75-58-28 regular-season record. The Flyers made the playoffs during the 2013-14 season but lost in the first round.“Mike’s a good friend of mine,” Berube said. “I loved working with him and coaching with him. We’ve got to move forward and get better. That’s the plan. We’ve definitely got to instill some confidence back in this hockey team. It’s a good hockey team. We’ve got good players.”While offering no definite plans , Berube has some ideas on how to get the team playing better.“I don’t think it’s anything massive. I think it’s tweaks here and there,” Berube said. “We’re going to demand … and that starts in practice. I’m demanding but I’m fair.”Yeo joined the Blues after five seasons with Minnesota. The Wild made the playoffs in three of Yeo’s four full seasons. He was fired 55 games into 2015-16.He was to have replaced Ken Hitchcock following the 2016-17 season, but Armstrong fired Hitchcock. On Tuesday, Hitchcock was appointed coach the Edmonton Oilers after the firing of Todd McLellan, the fourth NHL coaching dismissal this season. PITTSBURGH (AP) The Washington Capitals kept trying to downplay their own forgettable playoff history, the one pockmarked with disappointment and despair. Still, they couldn’t run from it.No one bore the weight more than Alex Ovechkin. All the goals in the world – and the star forward is at over 600 and counting now – couldn’t take the sting away from the endless cycle of postseason runs that ended far too soon.”It’s so hard to move forward some time,” Washington coach Barry Trotz said. ”It’s always thrown in your face everywhere you turn. I know it’s thrown in Ovi’s face everywhere he turns and he’s a great player in this league.”One who is finally headed to a conference final, with a team few expected to make it this far. The Capitals advanced to the Eastern Conference finals for only the third time since the franchise’s inception in 1974 with a 2-1 overtime victory in Game 6 against Pittsburgh on Monday night Austin Czarnik Jersey Womens , a victory secured by Evgeny Kuznetsov’s breakaway 5:27 into the extra period .”It feels like something is over,” Kuzntesov said. ”It’s pretty hard to speak.”Maybe because – for now anyway – Washington’s long-held role as playoff fodder for the Penguins is over. The Capitals beat Pittsburgh in the playoffs for only the second time in 11 tries by playing a disciplined style dictated by Trotz, one that focuses on responsibility at both ends of the ice.The game-winning sequence began with Kuznetsov poking the puck away from Penguins star Sidney Crosby as Crosby tried to enter the Washington zone. The puck made its way to Ovechkin and he threaded a pass to a sprinting Kuznetsov, who beat Matt Murray to spark a celebration two decades in the making.”I don’t want to lie, it tastes a little bit better (beating the Penguins),” Kuznetsov said. ”You know, I never focus on the history. I only focus game by game. It feels very nice. You keep playing hockey, it’s unbelievable.”Washington went 1-1-1 against the Lightning in three regular season meetings, the last a 4-2 loss at home on Feb. 20. That was two long months ago Josh Morrissey Jersey , and the team that celebrated in an equal parts joyous and relieved dressing room on Monday night doesn’t look like the one that was still searching for its legs in mid-winter.Injuries forced the Capitals to put together a patchwork lineup that included a handful of rookies, such as Nate Walker, who became the first Australian to record a point in the playoffs when he set up Alex Chiasson’s second-period goal.”We did have our moment in the first period when we said `Do we have five rookies playing tonight?”’ Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said. ”I thought our window had closed and we had an old team and we had five rookies. So our future remains bright and now we just have to focus on the third round.”Washington will do it with a resurgent Braden Holtby. Benched at the start of the playoffs in favor of Philipp Grubauer, Holtby heads to the conference finals playing some of the finest hockey of his career. He stopped 21 of 22 shots in Game 6 and is now 8-3 since Trotz put him back in the lineup.”Obviously everyone knows the difficulties we had getting out of the second round,” Holtby said. ”But that doesn’t make a difference in our main goal. Our main goal is still the Stanley Cup. The third round isn’t the Stanley cup. We have to refocus now. We can enjoy it and use that energy as kind of a recharge for the halfway point and push full force into the next round because it’s going to be a hard test.”One the Capitals believe they’re finally ready to pass. The franchise has only reached the Cup once, getting swept by Detroit in 1998, long before Ovechkin, Holtby and Leonsis came on board. This is their best chance at the club, one they’re intent on not squandering.”We set goals every year ,” Leonsis said. ”Make the playoffs. First round. Second round. Third round and win a championship. So we’re trying to check them off. It’s almost embarrassing that it’s taken this long for us to get past it.”Now that they have – at last, becoming the first professional team in the nation’s capital to reach a conference final since the ’98 Capitals did it – they’re eager to shed the past. It’s over and done. The future – and the Lightning – await.”We beat the Pittsburgh Penguins today and they’re a hell of a hockey team and we’re only halfway,” Trotz said. ”We haven’t done anything yet.”—
