Jonathan Quick remembers eating ice pops with his friends and watching their beloved New York Rangers win the Stanley Cup on television in 1994. Dustin Brown vaguely recalls Joe Nieuwendyk's bringing the Cup to Ithaca, N.Y., but can't remember if he got to see it up close. With just one more win by their Los Angeles Kings, the star goalie and the captain will have the Stanley Cup in their hands, above their head - even in the Pacific Ocean, if they choose. The stage is set for a California coronation in Game 4 on Wednesday night.

The doctors told Mike Eaves there was no specific reason he should not play hockey anymore. Eaves told himself there was no specific reason he should. Concussion No. 10 had come in the first exhibition game of the 1985-86 season. Eaves had been clotheslined by Quebec's Pat Price and had gotten up to continue when that feeling he had come to dread was upon him again. "It's sort of a dreamlike state," Eaves said. "You get this sense of deja vu. Only once, the first time in college (University of Wisconsin)

The real National Hockey League season begins tonight with the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and the potential for surprises, drama and, of course, bloodshed during the next eight weeks seems as bountiful as ever. Pared down to its simplest form, the fight for Lord Stanley's coveted cup is a war of attrition, and a team's most potent weapons are torrid goaltending and effective special teams. As for the myriad possible story lines, here are the major questions: Can Chicago coach Mike Keenan, who in only three years bullwhipped a disheveled franchise into producing the league's best regular-season team, drive the Blackhawks to their first Stanley Cup championship since 1961 and send the Windy City into a frenzy?

JUST 2 DAYS after CBSSports.com reported that Ray Rice could be reinstated to the NFL within a month, the NHL made it clear to everyone that it will not be the next league dragged through the slush over its handling of domestic-abuse cases involving its players. But please . . . hold your applause. Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov doesn't have his mug on a video-game box or his jersey all over the backs of kids and adults nationwide. There's no wing of his memorabilia on display at his alma mater.

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - The Stanley Cup arrived Thursday morning in the back of John Stevens' truck. The Cup had flown into Philadelphia International Airport the night before from its previous stop in Russia. By 11 a.m., the Cup was at Sea Isle's 57th Street beach, a day-tripper (no beach tag required), causing a scene as it rested for a couple of hours on a lifeguard boat. Since every player and coach who wins the Stanley Cup gets possession of the trophy for a day, this was Stevens' time.

When Rocky Wirtz took over ownership of the Chicago Blackhawks six years ago, they were among the worst teams in the NHL. Fast forward to Tuesday, when the owner mingled with fans and friends hours after the Blackhawks flew home with the Stanley Cup for the second time in four seasons. Chicago knocked out Boston, 3-2, Monday to clinch the Cup. It's been quite the turnaround, and the 60-year-old Wirtz thinks there is more to come. "I think we're going to see a lot of good years ahead of us," he said.

The family of Joe Watson, a grinding, fan favorite defenseman on the Flyers 1974 and 1975 championship teams, is hoping to recover a Stanley Cup ring stolen from Watson's daughter. The diamond encrusted pinkie ring the Flyers gave to each players' wife to celebrate the 1974 Cup victory was taken from the Rittenhouse Square apartment of Heidi Watson, 34, in a burglary Monday afternoon. As a member of the original 1967 Flyers, Joe Watson played 11 seasons with the team and memorably scored a goal in the 1976 game against the Soviet Union Red Army team.
