Lightning coach Jon Cooper says Ryan Malone's DUI, cocaine charges won't be a distraction

Malone was charged Saturday with DUI and possession of cocaine after a traffic stop, police said. An officer saw Malone’s SUV strike a curb after making a left turn from the center lane early Saturday, said Tampa Police Lt. Paul Lusczynski. After being pulled over, Malone got out of his vehicle, and the officer smelled alcohol on his breath, Lusczynski said. According to the police report, the officer also found 1.3 grams of cocaine in one of Malone’s pockets. Malone was released from the Hillsborough County jail on $2,500 bond.

WASHINGTON – Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper doesn’t think left wing Ryan Malone’s DUI and cocaine possession charges will be a distraction to the post-season-bound team.

“Ryan is probably a little embarrassed of what’s gone on. He made a poor decision, getting behind the wheel when he had alcohol in his system,” Cooper said before Tampa Bay beat the Washington Capitals 1-0 in a shootout Sunday to close the regular season.

“But for me, I’ve watched all the good decisions Ryan Malone’s made in his life, and how charitable he’s been and what a staple he’s been in our community in the years he’s been here,” Cooper added. “I hope this one instance doesn’t take away from that, because he’s been a class act for us, on and off the ice.”

Malone didn’t travel with the team to Washington. It isn’t yet known what his status for the playoffs will be. Tampa Bay will host the Montreal Canadiens in the first round, with Game 1 scheduled for Wednesday.

An officer saw Malone’s SUV strike a curb after making a left turn from the centre lane in the early hours of Saturday, Tampa Police Lt. Paul Lusczynski said. After being pulled over, Malone got out of his vehicle, and the officer smelled alcohol on his breath, Lusczynski said. According to the police report, the officer found 1.3 grams of cocaine in one of Malone’s pockets.

“We talked about it as a team yesterday, and it’s a real unfortunate thing, but I don’t think it was really on too many guys’ minds here today with the … stakes of this game,” Matthew Carle said after scoring the only goal in Sunday’s shootout.

Bruins clinch NHL's top record, beat Sabres 4-1

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.

The celebration will be a lot bigger if the Bruins achieve their ultimate goal, winning the Stanley Cup.

“We’ve still got to do some work here in order to get the trophy that we all really want,” Boston coach Claude Julien said.

David Krejci scored two goals, Patrice Bergeron netted his 30th of the season, and Gregory Campbell got his eighth as the Bruins dominated the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 Saturday in a game between teams at opposite ends of the standings.

It’s the second time the Bruins have won the Presidents’ Trophy, which gives them home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs, since the award was instituted for the 1985-86 season.

The Bruins have 117 points, third most in team history behind 121 in 1970-71 and 119 when they won the Stanley Cup in the 1971-72 season. Buffalo’s 51 points are tied for its fewest in a season not shortened by a lockout. Each team has one game left.

“We need to play a really strong game and feel good about our game going into the playoffs,” Krejci said.

Boston will end its regular-season schedule at New Jersey on Sunday. Buffalo will finish at home against the New York Islanders.

Boston’s first-round playoff opponent was still unknown, with Philadelphia, Columbus and Detroit all possibilities.

Cody Hodgson scored for the Sabres, but Buffalo sustained another blow in a frustrating, injury-plagued season. Starting goalie Matt Hackett was taken from the ice on a stretcher after Boston defenseman Torey Krug fell on his right leg in the crease with 11:35 left.

Stars Drown Monsters 4-1

April 6, 2014 – American Hockey League (AHL) Texas Stars CEDAR PARK, Texas – Texas Stars center Justin Dowling and left wing Mike Hedden each finished with two points on the game and goalie Cristopher Nilstorp stopped 30-of-31 shots in a 4-1 victory over the Lake Erie Monsters Sunday night in front of 4,538 fans at Cedar Park Center.

After a scoreless first period, Texas defenseman Jyrki Jokipakka opened up the scoring at 8:14 of the second frame taking a pass across the slot from center Justin Dowling and beating Lake Erie goaltender Sami Aittokallio stick-side. It was Jokipakka’s fifth goal of the year, assisted by Dowling and Mike Hedden. A mere 34 seconds later, the Monsters answered back to tie the game on a goal by David van der Gulik. Markus Lauridsen’s shot from the blue line was blocked in front, but Mark Olver reacted quickly to drop the puck to a waiting van der Gulik in the mid-slot for a snap shot into the net. Stars center Scott Glennie took back the lead with just over three minutes left in the period, one-timing a behind-the-back backhand pass from left wing Curtis McKenzie. It was a power play goal for Glennie, assisted by McKenzie and Travis Morin.

The score remained at 2-1 until the dying minutes of the third period. With 3:39 left, rookie Brett Ritchie scored an insurance goal bringing a pass from Hedden up the right side, cutting across the top of the crease and beating Aitokallio with a backhand upstairs for his 22nd goal of the year. Dowling would then cap off the scoring by notching a short-handed empty net goal with just over a minute left in regulation to seal the Stars’ victory 4-1.

Cristopher Nilstorp (25-12-4) finished with 30 saves on 31 shots to record his 25th win of the season in goal for Texas. Sami Aittokallio (13-14-3) stopped 23-of-26 shots faced and suffered his 14th loss of the year for Lake Erie. The Monsters out-shot the Stars 31-to-27 in the game and went 0-for-8 on the power play; Texas was 1-for-6 on the man advantage.

Notes: Brett Ritchie’s goal tonight, fifth in two games this weekend against Lake Erie, extended his current point streak to seven games. Ritchie has 13 points (7 goals, 6 assists) during his current streak. Mike Hedden extended his current assist and point streak to six games; he has nine assists and 10 points during that span. Travis Morin played in his 500th career professional game tonight.

The Texas Stars return to action on Friday, April 11th as they host the San Antonio Rampage at 7:30 p.m. at Cedar Park Center. Friday’s game is $3 Beer & $4 Robert Mondavi Private Selection Wine Night and is the Texas Stars Ear Bud with Carrying Case giveaway.

Bruins wrap up Eastern title

BOSTON – Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk knew he had scored the tie-breaking goal with 6:06 left in what turned out to be a 5-2 victory over the sagging Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

What Boychuk wasn’t aware of was his game-winner allowed his team to clinch the Eastern Conference regular season title.

“I didn’t even know … yeah, it feels good,” Boychuk said after the Bruins avoided their first three-game losing streak of the season with three late goals. “We try not to think about it; we just want to come to the rink and not think about anything else but the opponent in front of us.

“I guess it’s pretty good.”

The win not only wrapped up the East, but it gave the Bruins a two-point lead over St. Louis for the overall league lead, the Blues with a game in hand.

The Bruins have four games left, three of them on the road.

“There’s another race there,” said left winger Milan Lucic, who scored his 23rd and 24th goals of the season and added an assist. “Last time I checked I think they were down, 1-0.”

Told the Blues, who lost to the Colorado Avalanche, at home, were down, 3-0, Lucic said: “Down, 3-0,” and smiled.

He added: “You want to be the best team during the season, (but) once the playoffs start you can throw everything out the window. I think right now we’re not focused on winning and losing or the Presidents’ Trophy (awarded to the league’s overall leader), we’re just focused on playing the right way. And I think in the third period there we played the right way.”

Playing well in the third period is nothing new for the Bruins, who are league-best plus-50 in third periods this season. Their overall differential of plus-84 also is tops in the league.
