3:45PM: Stalberg said "I didn't really see what happened on the ice. It was kind of a dangerous play. I think that I am lucky that I didn't get it worse. Stuff happens quickly out there." (NYR

He added, "of course it's a penalty but things happen fast, they will miss stuff both ways. Can't dwell on that stuff too much but obviously that is a frustrating part, at that time of the game that would have been big for us to get a four minute PP." (NYR

On an apology from Letang, Stalberg said I haven't heard anything from him and I couldn't care less if he did or not. It's part of the game and the playoffs. (NYR)

Tanner Pearson's goal with 1:50 left in overtime powered the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-4 win over the New York Rangers on Friday night.

Anze Kopitar recorded a hat trick, and Marian Gaborik added a goal for Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles, which has won three of its last five.

Peter Budaj made 24 saves in his season debut start.

Budaj allowed three goals on eight shots in that one, a 7-2 Rangers win.

Alain Vigneault met with the media earlier today following the Rangers training camp practices (NYR):

  • On the lineups, "I have six guys who will be in both games, penciled in right now and both goalies will play both games. In our evaluation of last years season I also asked Benny to check on the way he has done things in the best with Hank as far as getting him ready for the season and analyzing the last couple of years. Benny thought that it might be beneficial to get some more time as far as technique in the initial practices rather than throwing him into games right away. He will get to spend a good full week here with Ben and then we will throw him in probably in Boston."

    The Sports Forecaster says that Stalberg is a "classic case of a player who has all the tools but may be missing the toolbox. A 6-3, 209 pounder, the Swedish winger also skates like the wind. Unfortunately he lacks hockey sense and is often criticized for his lack of drive and determination. After being bought out by Nashville, this may be his final NHL stop. (Sports Forecaster)
