NHL First Round of 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs ends tonight with Game 7, Carolina at Columbus






NEW YORK (April 23, 2019) – The First Round of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs reaches its exciting conclusion Wednesday with Game 7 between the Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes at Capital One Arena (7:30 p.m., ET, NBCSN, Sportsnet, TVAS).


Together with the doubleheader of Game 7s that will be played tonight (Toronto at Boston, 7 p.m., ET; Vegas at San Jose, 10 p.m., ET), the opening round of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs features three Game 7s, marking the 14th time in NHL history – and first time since 2014 (3) – that at least three such contests will be played in the opening round.


The Capitals will play in their 12th Game 7 since the beginning of the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs, the most among all teams in that span, while the Hurricanes will be making their first appearance since winning Game 7s in consecutive series of the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs en route to the Eastern Conference Final.


Both rosters feature players who appear among the all-time leaders of several Game 7 lists:


* Capitals forwards Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin are set to make their 12th career Game 7 appearances. The only players in NHL history who have appeared in more Game 7s are Patrick Roy (13), Scott Stevens (13) and Zdeno Chara (set to skate in his 13th tonight in Boston’s game vs. Toronto).


* Capitals forward Carl Hagelin is 8-1 in nine career Game 7s. His eight victories are tied for the most in NHL history with Brad Richards (8-0), Ray Bourque (8-1) and Glenn Anderson (8-4).


* Hurricanes captain Justin Williams is the leading Game 7 scorer in NHL history (7-7–14 in 8 GP). Williams, in his second stint with the club, will be making his first Game 7 appearance for the Hurricanes in 13 years. During the club’s Stanley Cup-winning run in 2006, Williams tallied a goal and two assists in a 4-2 win over Buffalo in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final and notched the insurance goal in the 3-1 win over Edmonton in the winner-take-all finale of the Stanley Cup Final.


Most Points, Game 7 (All-Time)

14 – Justin Williams (7-7–14 in 8 GP)

13 – Doug Gilmour (3-10–13 in 11 GP)

12 – Wayne Gretzky (6-6–12 in 6 GP)

12 – Trevor Linden (6-6–12 in 9 GP)

12 – Mark Messier (5-7–12 in 9 GP)


Williams will take to the ice Wednesday 16 years and two days after making his first Game 7 appearance in the NHL. He tallied the game-winning goal and added two assists for the Philadelphia Flyers in a 6-1 win over Toronto in the 2003 Eastern Conference Quarterfinal (April 22, 2003).


Rookie head coaches Todd Reirden (Washington) and Rod Brind’Amour (Carolina) are set to become the seventh set of first-year head coaches to meet in a Game 7. The last such meeting came in 1990, when Mike Milbury’s Boston Bruins defeated Rick Ley’s Hartford Whalers in Game 7 of the Adams Division Semifinal.

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY NHL PUBLIC RELATIONS; Jasmine Ghafour | NHL; Ryan Parker | NHLPA; Linda Ferrandini | Kraft Heinz; COURTESY



Renous, New Brunswick 2019 Kraft Hockeyville Winning Community


NEW YORK/TORONTO (April 17, 2019) – The community of Renous, New Brunswick, will host the 2019 Kraft Hockeyville Canada preseason festivities for winning this year’s competition. Now in its thirteenth year, Kraft Hockeyville invites Canadians to rally together to nominate and vote for the most passionate hockey community in the country. Renous, New Brunswick and their beloved Tom Donovan Arena, received millions of votes, as announced by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman during Hockey Night in Canada on March 30, 2019. The Montreal Canadiens and Florida Panthers will play a preseason matchup on September 18 in New Brunswick, the first time Kraft Hockeyville will be played in the province. The venue of the preseason game will be announced at a later date.


“All of our personnel and players are excited at the idea of going to play in New Brunswick, where we know we can count on a solid base of hockey fans who know and love the game,” said Geoff Molson, Owner, President and CEO of the Canadiens.


“The Panthers are proud to participate in this year’s Kraft Hockeyville game,” said Dale Tallon, Florida Panthers President of Hockey Operations and General Manager. “Whether you’re in Renous or South Florida, supporting the growth of our game at the grassroots level is at the heart of our mission and we’re excited for Renous to watch our Panthers stars compete on the ice.”


In addition to winning an opportunity to host the preseason matchup, Renous, home to approximately 700 residents, will also receive $250,000 for arena upgrades for the Tom Donovan Arena. Over the past several years, the community has rallied together and fundraised money to keep the heart of their community open. Through their own fundraising efforts the community replaced the rink boards, put in new glass, and upgraded their ice plant. With the Kraft Hockeyville award the community plans to put in a girls’ locker room and upgrade the building to be accessibility-friendly.


Renous will also receive $10,000 in equipment from NHLPA Goals & Dreams. The equipment donation will be distributed through the local organizing committee to a grassroots hockey program in the community to be used in the purchase of new equipment to help deserving youth play hockey.


“Congratulations to the Renous community who rallied together behind a powerful story to become this year’s Kraft Hockeyville.  We’re excited to celebrate with them this coming September,” said Dana Somerville, CMO at Kraft Heinz Canada.


As winners of 2019 Kraft Hockeyville Canada, the town will host events such as NHL player and alumni visits, hockey clinics, and a pregame fan festival. The community will also welcome the most revered trophy in professional sports – the Stanley Cup. Details of the community events will be announced on their Facebook page closer to the event.


Kraft Hockeyville Canada is a partnership with Kraft Heinz, the National Hockey League (NHL®), and the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) to support local rinks and community centres. Since its inception in 2006, Kraft Hockeyville has awarded more than $3.5 million to 81 communities across Canada and has celebrated 12 NHL preseason games in eight different provinces. Tickets to the preseason game are free and awarded to the winning community. Details on how to get tickets will be provided to the community closer to game day. For more information, visit
