NHL Morning Skate for Thursday, May 4, 2017: Stanley Cup Playoffs edition

WEDNESDAY’S RESULTS
Home Team in Caps
PITTSBURGH 3, Washington 2 – PIT leads 3-1
Anaheim 4, EDMONTON 3 (OT) – series tied 2-2

MULTI-GOAL COMEBACK TREND CONTINUES
The Ducks and Capitals each erased 2-0 deficits during the second period of their respective contests on Wednesday, with Anaheim rallying to win its game in Edmonton.

* Elias notes that the Ducks became the 11th team to overcome a multi-goal deficit to win a game in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Overall, 20 of 57 games (35.1%) this postseason have seen a team erase a multi-goal deficit (regardless of final result).

* Additionally, 22 games have seen the winning team overcome a deficit of at least one goal, including 10 that erased a third-period deficit (of any margin) to win.

GETZLAF FACTORS ON ALL FOUR GOALS IN OT WIN AS DUCKS EVEN SERIES
Ryan Getzlaf (2-2—4) established and matched career highs for goals and points in a playoff game – capping the night with the lone assist on Jakob Silfverberg’s goal 45 seconds into overtime – to help the Ducks overcome a multi-goal deficit and late tying goal by the Oilers to even their Second Round series at two games apiece.

* Getzlaf scored his 35th and 36th career playoff goals (all w/ ANA) to surpass Teemu Selanne (35) for first place on the all-time franchise list. Getzlaf also holds club records for career postseason assists (76) and points (112) in 112 outings.

* Getzlaf ranks second in the League with 7-6—13 this postseason (8 GP), including 4-4—8 in the Second Round and five multi-point efforts overall. Wednesday’s four-point effort was the second such performance of his playoff career (also Game 1 of 2015 SR vs. CGY: 1-3—4); Corey Perry (2) is the only other player with multiple four-point playoff games for the Ducks.

* Silfverberg, who scored the fourth game-winning goal of his playoff career (and first in overtime, 56 GP), tied the mark for second-fastest overtime goal in Ducks playoff history, six seconds shy of the franchise record of 39 seconds set by Steve Thomas in Game 4 of the 2003 Final vs. NJD.

* Getzlaf and Silfverberg, who has a goal in each of his last four games (5-1—6), share second in the League with seven goals this postseason, one behind Pittsburgh’s Jake Guentzel.

* The Ducks tied a series at 2-2 after losing the first two games for the fourth time in eight instances (also 2003 F vs. NJD, 2014 SR vs. LAK and 2016 FR vs. NSH). Anaheim, however, has never rallied to win any of the previous seven such series.

* Elias notes that when teams are tied 2-2 in a best-of-seven Stanley Cup Playoffs series, the winner of Game 5 holds an all-time series record of 196-54 (78.7%), including a 3-0 mark in 2017.

PENGUINS SURVIVE CAPITALS RALLY TO TAKE 3-1 SERIES LEAD
The Capitals erased a two-goal deficit in a span of 72 seconds, but Justin Schultz scored the tiebreaking goal less than three minutes later to help the Penguins take a 3-1 series lead and move within one victory of their second consecutive trip to the Eastern Conference Final.

* Schultz, who scored one game-winning goal during the 2016-17 regular season (78 GP), registered his first career playoff game-winning goal (24 GP). He became the eighth different defenseman to record a decisive marker this postseason.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 36 saves to become the 16th goaltender in NHL history to win 60 career playoff games – and second to reach the milestone in as many nights (following Henrik Lundqvist w/ NYR).

* Per Elias, teams that take a 3-1 lead in a best-of-seven series own an all-time series record of 267-28 (90.5%), including a 3-0 record this year. Pittsburgh owns an all-time series record of 13-3 when leading 3-1.

GUENTZEL CONTINUES SCORING AT RECORD PACE
Penguins rookie Jake Guentzel tallied 1-1—2 to maintain his League lead in goals and move into a share of third in points in the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs (8-4—12 in 9 GP).

* Guentzel became the fourth player in the NHL’s modern era (since 1943-44) to score at least eight goals in his first nine career playoff games – and just the third to do so in a single postseason. The others: Maurice Richard (12 in 1944), Mario Lemieux (11 in 1989) and Wayne Gretzky (9 from 1980-81).

* The last rookie to score at least eight goals in a single playoff year was Boston’s Brad Marchand, who collected 11 goals in 2011 to equal the fourth-highest total by a rookie in one playoff year in NHL history.

TOP 50 GREATEST NHL TEAMS TO COMPETE IN SECOND ROUND OF VOTING
After more than three weeks of fan voting, the list of contenders for the title of the NHL’s Greatest Team has been narrowed from 96 to 50 for the second round of voting, which begins today at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT.

Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Cody Allen has been voted American League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford for April, and Colorado Rockies relief pitcher Greg Holland has been voted National League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford for the opening month.

The American League Reliever of the Month presented by The Hartford, Cody Allen, and the National League Reliever of the Month presented by the Hartford, Greg Holland, will each receive a specially designed plaque, suitably engraved, for their accomplishments. This is the inaugural season of the Reliever of the Month Awards presented by The Hartford. The Hartford, the Official Business Insurance & Employee Benefits Sponsor of MLB, has presented baseball’s annual Relievers of the Year Awards since 2015. The 2017 Relievers of the Year presented by The Hartford will again be presented during the World Series.

Allen pitched in 10 games in April for the Indians, converting each of his six save opportunities and striking out 20 opposing batters. Cody allowed just one walk, did not surrender a home run and finished the month with a 0.90 ERA over 10.0 innings pitched to claim his first career monthly award. The six-year veteran began his 2017 season in historic fashion after closing out each of Cleveland’s first two victories. Allen became the first pitcher in MLB history to record a save and log three strikeouts in each of his team’s first two games of a season (since saves became an official statistic in 1969). On April 26th vs. Houston, the 28-year-old recorded his first four-out save of the season. For his career, the right-hander has registered a 0.77 ERA in save chances longer than an inning, converting 14-of-17 opportunities. Following his sixth save of the season on April 29th vs. Seattle, the Orlando, Florida native now ranks fifth in career saves in Indians history (98), trailing only Jose Mesa (104), Chris Perez (124), Doug Jones (129) and Bob Wickman (139). Allen, who has posted an ERA under 3.00 in each of his last four seasons, enters play today in the midst of an eight-game scoreless streak. In his remarkable month, Cody logged multi-strikeout efforts in eight of his 10 appearances, and currently sits in second among AL relievers in strikeout rate (18.00 K/9). Led by their closer’s excellent month, along with teammate Andrew Miller, who did not allow a run over 11.2 innings, the Indians bullpen finished the month of April with the second-lowest ERA (2.25) and fourth-highest strikeout rate (10.32 K/9) in the AL. Cleveland enters play today with a 14-12 record and sits 0.5 games back of the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox.

Craig Kimbrel (1-0, 1.59 ERA, 8 SV, 20 SO) of the Boston Red Sox had an excellent month as well. The five-time All-Star has now converted each of his 24 career save opportunities at Fenway Park, trailing only Tom Gordon (29 SV, 1998-99) for the franchise record. Entering play today, Kimbrel leads all AL relievers with nine saves. Others receiving votes for AL Reliever of the Month included Brandon Kintzler (0.79 ERA, 7 SV, 11.1 IP, 6 SO) of the Minnesota Twins; Chris Devenski (2.16 ERA, 16.2 IP, 32 SO) of the Houston Astros; Jose Leclerc (0.90 ERA, 10.0 IP, 16 SO) of the Texas Rangers; Tommy Kahnle (1.00 ERA, 9.0 IP, 19 SO) and Anthony Swarzak (2-0, 12.1 IP, 14 SO, 0.00 ERA) of the White Sox; and Brad Brach (1.93 ERA, 14.0 IP, 4 SV, 16 SO) of the Baltimore Orioles.

Holland was perfect in save opportunities, collecting his Major League-leading 11 saves in 12 games over 12.0 innings pitched en route to earning his third career monthly honor, having won Delivery Man of the Month in July and September of the 2013 season. The seven-year veteran posted a 1.50 ERA, while striking out 13 batters and issuing just five free passes. Holland began his tenure with the Rockies in notable fashion, becoming the first pitcher in franchise history to convert saves in the first two games of the season. The right-hander had not previously pitched since September 18, 2015 after undergoing Tommy John surgery and missing the 2016 season. A two-time AL All-Star for the Kansas City Royals (2013-14), Greg began the 2017 campaign with a seven game scoreless streak, allowing just two hits and three walks, while striking out nine batters. With his 11th save on Saturday in a 7-6 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field, the Western Carolina University product established a new franchise record for saves in the month of April. His 11 saves matched the record for most saves in a single calendar month in club history, set by Brian Fuentes (May 2007) and Huston Street (June 2009). According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the only other pitcher to save as many games by the end of April in his inaugural season with a team was Lee Smith, who converted 12 saves for the Baltimore Orioles in 1994. Holland, the recipient of the inaugural Mariano Rivera AL Reliever of the Year Award in 2014, converted saves in each of his first nine appearances for Colorado before pitching in a non-save situation on April 24th against the Washington Nationals. The 31-year-old tied Darren Holmes, who converted nine saves in nine games from August 8-28, 1993 for the franchise record for saves in consecutive appearances.

Others receiving votes for NL Reliever of the Month included Kenley Jansen (1-0, 1.86 ERA, 7 SV, 17 SO) of the Los Angeles Dodgers; Wade Davis (2-0, 6 SV, 0.00 ERA, 12 SO) and Carl Edwards Jr. (1-0, 0.00 ERA, 13 SO, 10.0 IP) of the Chicago Cubs; Tony Watson (0.96 ERA, 7 SV, 9.1 IP) of the Pittsburgh Pirates; Hansel Robles (4-0, 1.84 ERA, 14.2 IP, 17 SO) of the New York Mets; Archie Bradley (1-0, 1.13 ERA, 16.0 IP, 19 SO) of the Diamondbacks; and Greg’s teammate Adam Ottavino (1.42 ERA, 12.2 IP, 15 SO).

MLB Rookies of the Month honors for April go to Yankees’ Judge, Rockies’ Senzatela

New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge has been voted American League Rookie of the Month for April, and Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Antonio Senzatela has been voted National League Rookie of the Month for the first month of the 2017 season.

In recognition of their Rookie of the Month Awards, Aaron Judge and Antonio Senzatela will each receive a specially designed trophy, suitably engraved, for their accomplishments.

Judge batted .303 (23-for-76) with 23 runs scored, a pair of doubles, a triple, 10 home runs, 20 RBI and one stolen base to claim his first career monthly award, becoming the first Yankees player to take home rookie honors since teammate Gary Sánchez last August. With a minimum of 20 at-bats, Aaron paced all Major League rookies in runs scored, home runs, RBI and slugging percentage (.750), while matching outfielder Mitch Haniger of the Seattle Mariners in walks (13).

On April 12th against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium, Judge delivered his third consecutive multi-hit game, as well as his third home run in as many days. The 25-year-old became the third Yankee rookie in as many seasons to homer in at least three consecutive games, joining teammates Greg Bird (2015) and Sánchez (2016). In Friday night’s tilt with the Baltimore Orioles, the 32nd overall selection in the 2013 MLB Draft recorded his first career multi-homer game. At 25 years, two days, Aaron became the youngest Yankee outfielder to homer twice in a contest since Melky Cabrera (24 years, 254 days) accomplished the feat on April 22, 2009 against the Oakland A’s. Judge finished April tied with Oakland’s slugging outfielder Khris Davis for the AL lead in home runs. His 10 homers this past month matched Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies (2016) and José Abreu of the Chicago White Sox (2014) for the most by a rookie in the month of April in MLB history. The Linden, California native became the youngest Yankee in club history to reach the 10-home run mark in March/April, and just the third player for the Yankees, joining Alex Rodriguez (14, 2007) and Graig Nettles (11, 1974). Judge also became just the second player in Yankees history age 25-or-younger to hit 10 homers in the team’s first 22 games of a season, joining Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle (11 HR in 1956). Additionally, his 20 RBI through 22 team games were the most by a Yankees player age-25-or- younger since Bobby Murcer in 1969 (21 RBI). Led in large part by their young slugger, the Yankees currently own a 16-9 record (.640) and are tied with the Orioles for first in the competitive AL East.

Others receiving votes for AL Rookie of the Month included outfielders Haniger (.342, 20 R, 12 XBH, 16 RBI) of the Mariners and Andrew Benintendi (.333, 15 R, 4 2B, 14 RBI) of the Boston Red Sox.

Senzatela compiled a 3-1 record with a 2.81 ERA and 18 strikeouts over 32.0 innings pitched in five starts en route to earning his first career monthly award. Antonio is the first Rockies player to win NL Rookie of the Month since teammate Story took home rookie honors last April, following his historic month. Across qualified Major League rookie starting pitchers, Senzatela finished the period first in ERA and innings pitched, tied for first in wins and tied for fourth in strikeouts.

On April 22nd against the San Francisco Giants at Coors Field, Senzatela delivered 7.0 innings of

one-run ball, striking out three and allowing just four hits without a walk. The Valencia, Venezuela native logged his third consecutive win of the season with the impressive outing. Antonio became the second Venezuelan pitcher to earn a win in three of his first four career starts, joining Jeanmar Gomez, who accomplished the feat for the Cleveland Indians in 2010. Colorado’s promising young arm began his MLB career in grand fashion, compiling a 3-0 record to go along with a 2.08 ERA and 17 strikeouts over 26.0 innings pitched. During his sensational start to the season, Antonio held opponents to a .202 batting average and allowed just two round-trippers. Additionally, the 22-year-old posted three quality starts during his award-winning month and held opponents to three-or-fewer runs in four of his five starts. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Senzatela and fellow rookie teammate Kyle Freeland became the only two pitchers in Rockies history to earn three-or-more wins while maintaining an ERA below 3.00 within their first five career starts. Off to a fine start this season, the Rockies currently sit in second in the NL West with a 16-11 record (.593).

Others receiving votes for NL Rookie of the Month included Antonio’s teammate Freeland (3-1, 2.93 ERA, 27.2 IP, 16 SO); outfielder Manuel Margot (14 R, 29 H, 5 2B, 8 RBI) of the San Diego Padres; catcher Manny Piña (.375, 8 R, 18 H, 6 2B) of the Milwaukee Brewers; reliever Carl Edwards Jr. (1-0, 0.00 ERA, 11 G, 13 SO) of the Chicago Cubs; outfielders Cody Bellinger (.286, .571 SLG, .375 OBP, 2 HR) and Andrew Toles (12 R, 17 H, 5 HR, 13 RBI) of the Los Angeles Dodgers; first baseman Josh Bell (9 R, 18 H, 6 XBH, 8 RBI) of the Pittsburgh Pirates; and outfielder José Martinez (.342, 6 R, 2 2B, 4 RBI) of the St. Louis Cardinals.
