Darryl Sutter resigned yesterday as coach of the Chicago Blackhawks, saying it was time to focus his attention on his family. "I didn't agonize over it. It was reality, it was the right thing. I had put myself ahead of my family for 17 years," Sutter said. "My responsibility is as a father, first and foremost. " Sutter, 36, was 110-80-26 in three seasons as coach.

The Chicago Blackhawks have called a news conference for noon today, perhaps to allow coach Darryl Sutter a chance to say goodbye. Sutter, who led the Blackhawks to the Western Conference finals in his third season with the team, has been mulling whether to continue in the high- pressure job or devote more time to his family. Blackhawks owner William Wirtz said last night the team offered Sutter a contract extension before the playoffs, but would not discuss Sutter's plans.

E.J. McGuire and Jacques Martin were introduced yesterday as assistant coaches of Mike Keenan's Chicago Blackhawks.

Two long-time have-not franchises that took off after switching coaches midseason are among the last eight standing in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Ken Hitchcock of the St. Louis Blues and Darryl Sutter of the Los Angeles Kings both have top-shelf goaltending and the two stingiest defenses overall. Both teams dispatched their first-round opponents in five games, too, with relentless styles of play. That leaves plenty of time to prepare for Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals Saturday night.

Darryl Sutter stepped away from coaching yesterday, but it might be harder to pull away than he thinks. At a news conference yesterday announcing longtime assistant Jim Playfair will take over as Calgary Flames head coach, Sutter had a hard time letting the new guy finish his sentences. "Don't overlook the fact that it's about the team and there's a time for your veterans, your skilled players and your top players to assume responsibility," said Sutter, who will focus on the general manager duties he added in 2003.

SOMEHOW, someway Craig Berube awoke this morning still the head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers. He conducted exit interviews yesterday, despite the fact his job is in jeopardy. Given the circumstances, it was not awkward or unsettling, he said. Berube said it did not bother him that he was forced to answer questions yet again yesterday with his underwear practically flapping on a flagpole for all to see outside Skate Zone and his boss not rushing to pull it down. Ron Hextall conducted his own interviews yesterday (on a separate floor)

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Tonight is the game on the Flyers' schedule that assistant coach Gord Murphy has been dreading. He knew his emotions got the best of him here in the desert last November. Murphy, 47, played 862 career NHL games. He has been on the bench for another 871 games as an assistant coach. Nothing could prepare him for the rush of watching his son, Connor, make his NHL debut with the Coyotes on Nov. 16, 2013, against Tampa Bay. "It was surreal," said Gord Murphy, who was out of coaching at the time.

Walking the plank sounds like a terrible fate. That's why your modern pirate captain - he prefers chief executive officer/parrot wrangler - prefers to tell prisoners they are being "transitioned to the subaquatic holding cell. " No, you weren't just dumped. Your beloved has given you the opportunity to pursue strategic other opportunities and challenges with other potential spouses. And wouldn't the French Revolution have been less messy if those led to the guillotine had simply signed "voluntary cranial separation agreements" instead of being beheaded?

Colorado Avalanche general manager Pierre Lacroix yesterday dismissed any speculation that he would replace coach Tony Granato after the team's second-round playoff loss to the San Jose Sharks. "It's never been discussed, intended, thought of," Lacroix said. "It's only rumors. I don't know why people are talking about it. It's clear there was no discussion, never internally, externally or ever. " Granato, who was promoted to head coach when Bob Hartley was fired Dec. 18, 2002, has been the coach during a second- and first-round playoff exit the last 2 years.
