Blake Comeau and Oskar Sundqvist scored for Pittsburgh (3-3), and Nick Spaling had two assists. Crosby, the reigning NHL MVP, did not have a point. He has missed time in training camp because of a wrist injury and his grandmother's death.

Jimmy Howard stopped 31 shots for Detroit (3-2-1).

Habs try to better conference final run

(AP) -- As Michel Therrien spoke with the assembled media on the fifth floor of Madison Square Garden on the night of May 29, his pain was unmistakable.

Speaking softly after he stood behind the visitors' bench and watched his fellow Montreal Canadiens end their season with a 1-0 loss in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Final to the New York Rangers, Therrien acknowledged the hurt of a dream deferred.


Bruins look to regroup after early exit

BOSTON (AP) It's still difficult for Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask to take pride in his Vezina Trophy win from a season ago.

Rask led the league in shutouts with seven, finished second in save percentage at .930 and fourth in goals-against average with a 2.03.


Ovechkin still key to new-look Capitals

WASHINGTON (AP) Missing the playoffs for the first time in a while jarred the Washington Capitals into fundamental changes. New general manager. New coach, this time someone with actual NHL head coaching experience. A big free agency day in which they pilfered a pair of defensemen from the rival Pittsburgh Penguins.

The constant? Alex Ovechkin.


Wings want more than just playoff berth

DETROIT (AP) The last two seasons have been full of drama for the Detroit Red Wings - just not in the way the franchise is accustomed to.

Coach Mike Babcock's team has had to scramble to extend its streak to 23 consecutive postseason appearances, and although that's certainly a remarkable accomplishment, the Red Wings were hardly considered major contenders for the Stanley Cup. They haven't reached the conference finals since 2009, a year after the team won its most recent championship.


Sens face questions after key departures

(AP) -- On the final day of Ottawa's season, coach Paul MacLean stood before the assembled media and acknowledged the obvious: Almost everything that could go wrong did, and across-the-board improvements were imperative.

"I think in the National Hockey League you have to play well enough, long enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs," MacLean said. "We didn't do that. I think we have to change our approach. We have to get to that identity right away."
