What Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen called "a big piece of the puzzle" fell into place Monday when the club signed goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky to a two-year contract extension. The 24-year-old Russian, recipient of the Vezina Trophy as the NHL's top goalie this past season and a former Flyer, could have become a restricted free agent this week. "I'm looking forward to the season and working with my teammates to help us to our goal of winning a Stanley Cup," he said.

TWO YEARS ago, former Celtics point guard Chris Herren was the subject of an excellent ESPN 30-for-30 documentary titled "Unguarded. " In it, Herren gave a brutally honest account of how drug addiction ruined his NBA career. Eventually, he got clean and is now counseling others. Which brings us to the NFL Rookie Symposium being held this week in Aurora, Ohio. Herren recently spoke. The rookies - if they are smart - listened. "My opening line to them was, 'Unfortunately, in the room right now there are more future drunks and drug addicts than there are multimillionaires,' " Herren told FOXSports.com.

VANOUVER - New Canucks coach John Tortorella was surprised the subject of his famous temper didn't come up in the first question of his introductory news conference yesterday. But he didn't get angry or yell. The 55-year-old Boston native admitted his reputation needs some work, and he vowed to improve it as he attempts to give Vancouver a long-awaited Stanley Cup title. "This is the mess I put myself into, and this is the mess I'm going to get myself out of," he said. The Canucks hired the fiery Tortorella as the replacement for Alain Vigneault, the winningest coach in franchise history.

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.

CHICAGO - When Rocky Wirtz took over the Chicago Blackhawks 6 years ago, they were among the worst teams in the NHL. Fast forward to yesterday, 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. 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. It sure looks that way. Unlike in 2010, when the title-winning team underwent changes because of salary-cap issues, the Blackhawks will be able to bring back many of their top players next season when they try to become the first repeat Stanley Cup winner since the Detroit Red Wings in 1998.

CHICAGO - Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks have that look again, and another Stanley Cup is within reach. Kane scored two goals, Corey Crawford made 24 saves and the Blackhawks beat the Boston Bruins, 3-1, on Saturday night to take a three-games-to-two lead in the Finals. Kane had a terrific postseason when Chicago won it all in 2010, including the winning score in a 4-3 overtime victory in Philadelphia that secured the title. Now he's picking up steam as the Blackhawks move closer to another championship, collecting seven goals in the last seven games.

CHICAGO - They keep tinkering, each of them, looking for any advantage they can find. Claude Julien made a line change in Game 2 that led to a victory for the Boston Bruins. A couple of subtle adjustments by Joel Quenneville helped the Chicago Blackhawks get a big win in Game 4. Back and forth it goes. While the Bruins and Blackhawks compete on the ice, two former NHL defensemen are trying to become the 14th coach with at least two Stanley Cup titles. "They've got a role to play, just like we do as players," Chicago forward Patrick Sharp said Friday.

CHICAGO - So much for all the talk about the impenetrable goalies, and forget about those lane-clogging defensemen. It was all about the offense in Game 4, and the hangover could extend into the final three games of the deadlocked Stanley Cup Finals. Chicago's 6-5 overtime victory at Boston on Wednesday night was the highest-scoring game in this year's NHL playoffs. There were breakaways, rebounds, long slap shots and tips. Eleven goals in all, coming from all over the ice. It all raises questions about how the remainder of this compelling series will look.

TRAINING WITH a few of his teammates at the Flyers' practice facility over the last few weeks, no one approached Danny Briere and asked about his future plans or the upcoming season. It had been a topic in the media well before the curtain closed on the Flyers' miserable season. "It was kind of the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about," Briere said. "The hockey world - it's a small world. I've seen all the rumors. Reality was, it was going to happen. It's a sad day that it's finally official.
