Coaching can have a huge impact on a teams fortunes, as demonstrated by two teams specifically last season: the Penguins, when they chose Mike Sullivan as a midseason replacement and went on to win the Stanley Cup, and the Sabres, who vaulted 27 points up the standings in their first season under Dan Bylsma.

After a replay, the winner will meet Sunderland in the quarterfinals. Sagbo did well to control Sone Alukos right cross and fire past Brighton goalkeeper Peter Brezovan. Aluko was making his first start in four months after recovering from an Achilles injury.BOSTON -- Patrick Kane already has one Stanley Cup-winning goal from 2010 along with the one that put the Chicago Blackhawks back into the finals this year. Can he imagine a second NHL title-clincher? "I think the stars would have to be aligned right for it to happen like that again," Kane said Sunday, a day before the Blackhawks will take the ice in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final with a chance to win their second championship in four seasons. "I think the biggest thing is trying to help contribute any way I can, help this team get a win, especially the situation were in," said Kane, who scored the winner in Game 6 against Philadelphia in the 10 finals, and the one that eliminated the Los Angeles Kings in this years Western Conference finals. "Ill do whatever I can to help the team win, and it would be a great feeling." The Blackhawks will take a 3-2 lead into Game 6 against the Boston Bruins on Monday night, and Kane is a big reason why. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 NHL draft had two goals in Chicagos 3-1 victory in Game 5, giving him seven goals in his last seven games, including two winners. "Thats the type of player he is," Blackhawks defenceman Niklas Hjalmarsson said. "When it comes down to the wire and tight games, big games, thats when he wants the puck. Thats when he wants to score the goals, the big goals.& qquot;Its huge to have those kind of players in your team when you go far in the playoffs. Marc-Andre Ter Stegen Arsenal Jersey. And now when its really coming down to the wire here, (it) gives the whole group confidence that you have players like that. Its not a coincidence that he has a lot of big goals so far in his career." Actually, Kane has a lot of small goals, too. In addition to the nine times hes scored in 22 playoff games this post-season, Kane led the Blackhawks in scoring in the lockout-shortened regular season with 55 points in 48 games -- including 23 goals that tied for the team lead. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville split Kane and Jonathan Toews at the start of the finals so that Bruins counterpart Claude Julien wouldnt be able to match defenceman Zdeno Chara with both of the Blackhawks top forwards. But they responded with no goals in the first three games, and Quenneville put them back together for Game 4. Since then, they have combined for four goals and seven points. Kanes 19 points in the playoffs lead Chicago and are second in the NHL; he also led the Blackhawks with eight points in the six-game victory over Philadelphia in the 2010 finals. "Its like we always say: I dont care who scores for us; I dont care whos on the ice for them," Quenneville said. "We expect somebody has got to score for us, and were not choosy in that department."
