Panthers will win before Rangers

A plethora of points to ponder during the playoffs. ⁊If ABC-TV thinks it’s going to win new fans with creative NHL coverage, it has another think coming based on its telecast of Game 1 of the Pittsburgh Penguins-New Jersey Devils series. Cameras appeared to be located somewhere on Venus and stickhandlers looked more like bedbugs than hockey players. ⁊ The Penguins’ core offense-Mario Lemieux, Kevin Stevens, Rick Tocchet, Jaromir Jagr, Ron Francis and Joe Mullen-is better than the five-time Cup-winning (1956-60) Montreal Canadiens’ sextet of Jean Beliveau, Dickie Moore, Bemie Geoffrion, Bert Olmstead and Maurice and Henri Richard. ⁊ Don’t be fooled; the quick hiring of Mike Keenan by the New York Rangers was done for two reasons.

Clark’s intimidating presence deserts him in post-season

It’s ironic that after playing more games than he has played in the each of past five seasons, Wendel Clark may have reached the depths of his value as a Toronto Maple Leaf. Clark played 66 games this year, the most the injury-plagued left winger has managed since playing the 80-game schedule in 1986-87. But he scored only 17 goals, was used sparingly on the power play, was criticized by coach Pat Bums after going on a Caribbean vacation during the all-star break while injured and didn’t resemble the impact player he once was. It got worse in the playoffs.

Lindros shoulders load for Canada

Team Canada rode the broad shoulders of Philadelphia Flyers’ center Eric Lindros to a first-place finish in Group A at the World Championships in Munich, Germany. Lindros had 10 goals and 16 points in five games to lead all scorers in the tournament as Canada went a perfect 5-0-0 in the round-robin portion of the event. Canada was to meet Finland, which finished fourth in Group B, in the first round of the playoffs 28. The top three scorers in round-robin play were all Canadians. Maine (Hockey East) right winger Paul Kariya had two goals and nine points and Edmonton Oilers’ left winger Shayne Corson had one goal and eight points. “We have a good combination of size and speed, young and old,” said New York Rangers’ right winger Mike Gartner. “The different…
