Patrick Roy will be the next coach of the Avalanche, according to Roy's brother, Stephane.
"They're discussing the final details of an arrangement. Colorado is going to be very happy. Patrick is looking for a new challenge," said Stephane Roy, the younger brother of his famous sibling.
The Chicago Blackhawks haven't faced adversity this season but they are most certainly in that position now thanks to the Red Wings.

Injured Boston Bruins defensemen Dennis Seidenberg and Wade Redden participated in the team’s practice Monday morning at TD Garden and both will make the trip to New York in advance of Tuesday’s Game 3 against the Rangers.

In the middle of March 2012, the wheels were coming off for the Red Wings.
After several weeks with the most points in the NHL, Jimmy Howard, Pavel Datsyuk and Nicklas Lidstrom were injured. Other players were nicked up and struggling to get back into the lineup.
What was unknown to fans and m
It is difficult enough for the Rangers to win even when Henrik Lundqvist is at the top of his game. It is all but impossible for the Blueshirts to even come close when The King plays as if he’s a plebeian.
Which goes a long way in explaining yesterday, when it appeared as if the Bruins were sho
Patrick Roy is a strong candidate for the Avalanche head coaching job, an NHL source confirmed Sunday.
The former Avalanche goaltender and NHL Hall of Famer is considered a rising star in the coaching ranks and was offered Colorado's head coaching job in 2009 before turning it down. With the job

When Matt Cooke's skate came down on Erik Karlsson's Achilles tendon on Feb. 13, Ottawa's season was truly thrust into its underdog, ragtag phase, all replacements and duct tape.
Jason Spezza's back surgery and Jared Cowen's hip surgery were one thing; the loss of Karlsson, who could control the
The situation facing the New York Rangers is exactly the same as it was two weeks ago, but goalie Henrik Lundqvist has identified one problem that ruins the comparison between trying to dig out of an 0-2 hole against the Washington Capitals and climbing out of the same ditch against the Boston Bruin
The Bruins took a 2-0 series lead over the Rangers in the Eastern Conference semifinals with a 5-2 victory Sunday at TD Garden.

The Detroit Red Wings have been the gold standard in the NHL for more than a decade, something not lost on the rival Chicago Blackhawks.
This current collection of Blackhawks has been building toward trying to meet that standard, winning the Stanley Cup in 2010 and knowing that knocking off the R
The Penguins arrived in Canada's capital Saturday with a clear purpose and a clearer plan: End this Stanley Cup playoff series with the Senators as quickly as possible, and do so with more of what succeeded in the first couple of games:
1. Superb special teams
2. Star-power scoring
3. Solid if un
The Penguins will have one extra problem to deal with tonight: Ottawa center Jason Spezza is expected back for Game 3.
Spezza held court at his locker Saturday afternoon to share the news that has been much anticipated in these parts.
"I feel good," said Spezza. "It's gotten better and better ever
Just a week removed from the violent turbulence of this postseason's first round, the Penguins have reached a comfortable cruising altitude, even as they keep their seat belts buckled, but since the FAA prohibits more than three aviation metaphors in any lead paragraph, we probably should start talk
When Patrick Roy turned down the Avalanche coaching gig in 2009, Joe Sacco was hired right away to fill the opening. The Avs took some criticism at the time for not conducting a more thorough search.
Joe Sakic will not repeat that mistake. Sacco was fired April 28, and the job remains unfilled, a
In all things hockey, it seems, Randy Carlyle is about moving forward.
The Maple Leafs’ head coach hates the rear-view beyond addressing it briefly and carrying on.
But for the big one that got away Monday night in Boston, the blown 4-1 lead in Game 7 of the franchise’s first playoff appea
Jaromir Jagr was philosophizing, as is his wont.
“I’m 41 and learning something every day,” the Bruins’ No. 68 said following Saturday’s practice in advance of Sunday’s Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Rangers. “The game is quicker than it ever was, and if I w
The Sharks might have been missing their biggest agitator Saturday, but that didn't stop them from playing what might have been their most physical game of this year's postseason.
Faced with the prospect of trailing three games to none to the Los Angeles Kings in this Western Conference semifinal s

The Wings leave the United Center this afternoon with a 4-1 victory banked on the hard work especially of their captain, Henrik Zetterberg, who had two assists. After the Wings' dem
As I watch the Stanley Cup playoffs, it’s easy to appreciate the usual amount of dramatic hockey you see. It’s also hard to watch without thinking about it within the prism of the Sabres’ offseason.

Brendan Smith became the social media poster boy for all that went wrong for the Red Wings in the Game 1 debacle Wednesday against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Smith is young and inexperienced — just 24 years old — and he made several costly mistakes in the 4-1 loss. He was criticized during the n
So far in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, third periods are not the Red Wings' best phase.
The Blackhawks and Ducks have outscored them, 15-5.
But how much does it matter, and is there a specific cause?
Through eight games, the Wings have scored more than their opponents in the third period
