NHL draft lottery losers last year, the Florida Panthers had their number come up this year.
COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Columbus Blue Jackets don't mind all the doubters.
ARLINGTON, Virginia - Explaining early playoff exits became an annual, awkward task for Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. This season, for the first time since 2007, they didn't even make the postseason, so now there's something new: real uncertainty.
BUFFALO, New York - With his nose broken and a red bruise formed beneath his left eye, veteran Buffalo Sabres forward Drew Stafford settled on a sliver of positive perspective in assessing one of the worst and most tumultuous seasons in the franchise's 44-year history.
Tony Perez was on the road with the Cincinnati Reds in 1966 when he got the call that his first child was on the way. There was no discussion about leaving the team to attend Victor's birth, no such thing as paternity leave.
WASHINGTON - It came right down to the final moment of the final regular-season game for the Tampa Bay Lightning to secure home-ice advantage against the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs.
BOSTON - Cheering fans stood and waved gold and black towels as the Boston Bruins claimed the Presidents' Trophy for the NHL's best regular-season record.
For the first time since 1973, there is just one Canadian team in the NHL postseason. The Montreal Canadiens represent the nation's only hope of ending a 21-year Stanley Cup drought, and that's a long shot.
WASHINGTON - Alex Ovechkin's Washington Capitals have been officially eliminated from playoff contention, the first time they'll sit out the postseason since 2007.
In a story April 6, The Associated Press quoted Marc Edelman, an associate professor who specializes in sports and antitrust law at City University of New York, saying that Alabama's athletic revenues last year, which totaled $143 million, exceeded those of all 30 NHL teams and 25 of the 30 NBA teams. The story should have made clear that Edelman's report was based on Forbes' valuation of NBA teams during the 2011-12 season. The NBA said that revenues for 13 of its teams exceeded $143 million during the 2012-13 season last year.
PHILADELPHIA - The NHL has suspended Philadelphia Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo for four games for an illegal check to the head.
SEATTLE - The investment group trying to bring men's professional basketball back to Seattle is remaining focused on the NBA, even if landing a hockey franchise could happen sooner.
After leading Canada to a gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, Shannon Szabados took on a more imposing challenge.

LOS ANGELES - Darryl Sutter doesn't remember his first win as an NHL coach. And now that he's gotten his 500th in the regular season, he didn't make anything special out of this one, either.
MONTREAL - Patrick Roy smiled and appeared calm upon his first trip back to Montreal's Bell Centre as a visiting head coach.
