important thing,” said Kronwall http://www.officialdu
RALEIGH Brandon Montour Jersey Kids , N.C. (AP) Rod Brind’Amour helped deliver the greatest moment in Carolina Hurricanes’ history – a Stanley Cup championship.His next challenge is to create more memorable moments as their coach.The captain of the Hurricanes’ 2006 Cup-winning team has his first head coaching job in the NHL, taking the next step in a career arc that during the past 18 years has brought him from team leader all the way up the coaching ladder – and all with Carolina.”It’s a job, but it’s not,” Brind’Amour said Wednesday. ”It means more to me.”The Hurricanes gave Brind’Amour a three-year contract, with team owner Tom Dundon declining to discuss the financial terms. But Dundon did praise Brind’Amour for his willingness to put his reputation on the line while trying to things around. Carolina hasn’t made the playoffs since 2009, a nine-year drought that ranks among the longest in NHL history.”He didn’t need the job,” Dundon said. ”He’s got a good life here, he’s well respected and the risk that he’s taking with his reputation and his legacy is real.”The Hurricanes have changed coaches three times and general managers twice since their last postseason appearance. Another of the franchise’s greats – Hall of Fame player Ron Francis, like Brind’Amour a former team captain – was stripped of the GM’s job during the season and last week had his contract terminated.Brind’Amour said Dundon and team president Don Waddell, who also added the title of general manager during the shake-up, have ”high expectations, which is huge.”For whatever reason, our expectations have fallen a little bit here , and we need to raise those,” he added.He also wants to raise the effort level from the players, pledging to push them in much the same way he pushed his teammates during his time as team captain.”We have a lot of guys in that room that need to give more,” he said. ”I think there’s more there. … They didn’t produce the way they could produce. … We’re going to demand more from our players, at the end of the day, and I think they want that.”That’s an approach that helped turn the Hurricanes into winners before, and now he wants to see if it will work again.Brind’Amour came in Carolina in January 2000 in a trade with Philadelphia – and never left. He helped lead the Hurricanes to the Stanley Cup final in 2002, ascended to the captaincy before the 2005-06 season and ended that year by becoming the first Carolina player to hoist the Cup – in the process, creating the franchise’s signature image that remains on display throughout PNC Arena.”There are guys that wear the C,” former teammate Aaron Ward said, ”and there are guys that ARE the C.”The two-time Selke Award winner as the NHL’s best defensive forward retired in 2010 and ranks third in club history in assists (299), fourth in points (473) and fifth in games played (694). His post-playing career began in a front-office position – director of forwards development – but became an assistant coach in 2011, first for Paul Maurice Womens Corey Perry Jersey , then Kirk Muller and Bill Peters – who opted out of the final year of his contract, creating the opportunity for Brind’Amour.”I actually remember asking (then-GM Jim Rutherford) at the time, `Hey, put me upstairs with you,’ and he kept pushing me down” toward a future in coaching, Brind’Amour said. ”It’s the closest thing to playing. … You’re in the fight with the guys. I felt like it’s something I have a passion for, and the more I got into it … I wanted to take a chance on taking charge. I stuck my neck out, and here we are.”— BOSTON — The Detroit Red Wings have scored nine goals in four games in their worst start since 1980.The Bruins‘ line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak have scored 10 goals on their own during their team’s three-game winning streak.The rebuilding Red Wings, whose 0-2-2 start is the franchise’s worst since going 0-5 in 1980, visit the Bruins Saturday looking for that elusive first win.Article continues below ...It’s not as easy task.The Bruins, embarrassed 7-0 in their season opener at Washington, have outscored their opponents 14-4 in their last three Kyle Brodziak Jersey Womens , capped by Thursday night’s 4-1 home victory over the Edmonton Oilers.“Special teams were good, obviously makes a difference. We got a couple on our power play. Discipline was good. Team defense was good. We used our whole bench, our backup goalie, so everyone was contributing,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said after the win over Edmonton in the second game of a three-game homestand.That “backup goalie” was Jaroslav Halak, who has allowed one goal — a breakaway by Connor McDavid that gave Edmonton a 1-0 lead — in his two starts as a Bruin.Halak will not be in goal Saturday, with Tuukka Rask back as the starter in a game originally scheduled to be played at night but moved to 3 p.m. because of the Red Sox’s home playoff game at 8 p.m.Rask, the goaltender Bruins fans love to hate, has struggled out of the gate. He was shelled in 27 minutes at Washington, then gave up three goals and had two shots hit pipes, in his win over the Ottawa Senators earlier this week.Bergeron has five goals and three assists, Marchand a goal and seven assists and Pastrnak has four goals and two assists in the last three games.“That top line has done a great job,” said Detroit coach Jeff Blashill. “I thought in our building last year Jakob Silfverberg Jersey , we did a real good job, kept them off the board until about 30 seconds left and then they scored to tie it and they were part of the game winner in overtime. We got to do a good job obviously checking that group, but as a group, as a whole, we just got to make sure we play great hockey.”Rask is 12-5-2 with a 2.58 goals-against average, .903 save percentage and one shutout lifetime against the Red Wings, who have lost 10 straight games, counting playoffs, at TD Garden.The Red Wings lost, at home, to Toronto Thursday night despite the return from injury of defenseman Niklas Kronwall and the first two goals of the season by defenseman Nick Jensen.“Well, we didn’t get the win. That was the most important thing,” said Kronwall , who played his first game of the season. “I thought in bits and pieces of the game we did a lot of good things. But when we’re not doing it right, we’re not as good. Second period I thought we let ourselves down. Way too many turnovers. And it started with my mistake on their second goal.“We didn’t respond very well after that. And in the third we got playing again, playing with more desperation and that’s the way we have to play. I thought in the first period we did a lot of good things. But we’ve got to find a way to create a little more offense. And we gave up way too many easy chances.”Goaltender Jimmy Howard was the loser Thursday, falling to 0-1-2 with a 2.90 goals-against average and .910 save percentage this season. He is 5-6-3 with a 2.56 goals-against average and .921 save percentage lifetime against the Bruins.Fellow veteran Jonathan Bernier, who has lost his only start of the season, is 5-5-0 with a 3.33 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in his career against the Bruins.Detroit, banged up and also dealing with a virus that has kept Mike Green out from the start, will again be missing, among others, Dennis Cholowski, out with an upper body injury.The Wings complete a two-game road trip at Montreal Monday night, while the Bruins open a four-game trip in Calgary Wednesday.
