NHL teams clean house after missing playoffs

Several NHL clubs have dropped the axe on their employees this season after they failed to make the 2014/15 Stanley Cup playoffs. It didn’t take long for the franchises to start cleaning house shortly after the regular season came to an end. Those clubs who have already made changes include the Toronto Maple Leafs, Buffalo Sabres, Boston Bruins, and San Jose Sharks.

The Maple Leafs got the ball rolling after finishing the season 26th out of 30 teams with a woeful record of 30-44-8. The Leafs had already fired head coach Randy Carlyle earlier in the season and replaced him with assistant Peter Horachek. It turned out to be one of the worst decisions in club history as Horachek posted a brutal record of 9-28-5 and the Leafs had their worst season in the last 20 years. Horachek was fired by team president Brendan Shanahan after the season, but Shanahan didn’t stop there. Also sacked were several assistant coaches as well as general manager Dave Nonis and almost the team’s entire scouting staff. When the dust had settled a total of 23 people were fired from their positions.

Edmonton Oilers win Connor McDavid Sweepstakes

It was clear to the naked eye that several NHL clubs attempted to tank this season and finish as low as they possibly could in the standings to have a better shot at winning the first overall draft lottery. The lower the teams sank the higher percentage they had at winning the first pick, which is certainly to be junior star Connor McDavid of the Ontario Hockey League’s Erie Otters. The Buffalo Sabres, Edmonton Oilers, Arizona Coyotes and Toronto Maple Leafs all shamelessly tanked in hopes of picking up the 18-year-old scoring sensation.

Stanley Cup champions Los Angeles Kings miss playoffs

The NHL’s 2014/15 regular season came to an end on April 11 with last season’s Stanley Cup winners the Los Angeles Kings missing the playoffs by two points. The Kings, who won the cup twice in the last three seasons, lost two of their last three games to fall short in the Western Conference. The Ottawa Senators clinched a playoff spot on the final day of the season with a 3-1 win over the Flyers in Philadelphia. The Senators, led by rookies goalie Andrew Hammond, went an incredible 23-4-4 over their final 31 games to make the postseason.

NHL records set with four goals in 49 seconds

A new NHL scoring record was set on Friday, April 3 when four goals were scored in just 49 seconds of play. The new mark was set during a Western Conference game between the St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The old mark for the fastest four goals in a game by both teams was set back in 1983 in a clash between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Blackhawks. Those two sides managed to achieve the feat in 53 seconds. However, while St. Louis and Dallas shaved four seconds off the old record, they did it over two different periods.
