L.A. Kings crowned Stanley Cup champions

L.A. Kings crowned Stanley Cup champions | esportes | Scoop.it

After 45 long years, the Los Angeles Kings have finally been crowned Stanley Cup champions. The party kicked off before the first period even ended Monday as Los Angeles romped to a 6-1 series-clinching victory over the stunned New Jersey Devils. It was worth the wait. "You have no idea," said Kings defenceman Drew Doughty. "It's the best feeling ever."

 

The party kicked off before the first period even ended Monday as Los Angeles romped to a 6-1 series-clinching victory over the stunned New Jersey Devils. With about a minute left in regulation, the Kings players started jumping up and down on their bench in anticipation, and soon captain Dustin Brown was doing a star turn at centre ice with the Stanley Cup above his head.

Surging Penguins take No. 1 in SI.com's NHL Power Rankings

Surging Penguins take No. 1 in SI.com's NHL Power Rankings | esportes | Scoop.it

A little more than three weeks remain, still plenty of time for bubble teams to climb off their slippery surfaces and get into the terra firma of Playoffland. As for Thursday's premier game between the Penguins and Rangers, we can only hope the possible return of Sidney Crosby leads to his being healthy through a playoff run. With that said, we give you this week's SI.com NHL Power Rankings.

 

A DISCLAIMER (of sorts): These rankings are based not just on each team's record, but an empirically tested formula that includes a) realistic near-term future expectations; b) consensus talent level and payroll considerations and; c) whatever the Magic 8-Ball I've had since I was seven years old tells me will happen. One more thing: Rest assured that I don't have it in for your team. OK, so I once hated the Philadelphia Flyers with a passion bordering on the psychotic, but that was 30-something years ago and Dave Schultz has long since retired. I welcome your emails to the link attached to my name above, and I always respond -- even to the ones that start with "Dear Idiot."

 

All stats and records through games of Monday, March 12

Herói da URSS na Guerra Fria, astro do hóquei morre aos 52 anos

Herói da URSS na Guerra Fria, astro do hóquei morre aos 52 anos | esportes | Scoop.it

Ídolo da União Soviética durante a Guerra Fria, o astro do hóquei sobre gelo Vladimir Krutov morreu nesta quarta-feira, após sofrer uma hemorragia no estômago três dias depois de completar 52 anos. A morte do ex-jogador causou comoção em toda a Rússia. Krutov foi símbolo de uma equipe capaz de derrubar os Estados Unidos (e o Canadá) em meio à Guerra Fria, conflito político entre as duas maiores superpotências da segunda metade do século passado.

 

Ao lado de Igor Larionov e Sergei Makarov, Krutov fez parte da seleção soviética responsável em parar os americanos no esporte. Apelidado de 'O Tanque', ele liderou o time na conquista de dois ouros olímpicos (1984 e 1988) e cinco títulos mundiais no começo da década de 80. Sua performance chamou tanto a atenção que quando a URSS já sofria sinais de ser extinta, ele foi contratado para jogar na NHL (liga profissional de hóquei no gelo dos Estados Unidos) pelo Vancouver Canucks, em 1989, onde autou apenas uma temporada (em 61 jogos fez 11 gols).
