Colorado Avalanche: News from around the NHL June 10, 2014

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

The Kings have placed themselves in a good position going into Game Four.

Preconceptions about the lopsided potential of this Stanley Cup final — hastily revised after the first two games — appear to have been correct after all.

The Los Angeles Kings, arguably lucky to win either, let alone both, of their home games to start the series, dominated every phase of Game 3 Monday night at Madison Square Garden.

It was 3-0 on the scoreboard, it is 3-0 in games, and soon, to use an old newspaper symbol for “end of story” it will be -30- for the New York Rangers.

Jeff Carter supplied the dagger — opening scoring with 0.8 seconds left in the first period — and goalie Jonathan Quick the exclamation point.
Jake Muzzin and Mike Richards added second-period goals, and the Kings shut it down after that.

Palat signed a three year deal.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed forward Ondrej Palat to a three-year contract.

The team announced the deal Monday.

NHL revenue are expected to be a record number.

Get ready for a skyrocketing salary cap in the NHL, even before the league’s new Canadian TV deal gets factored in.

According to a report on Monday from Chris Botta of the SportsBusiness Journal, NHL revenues for the 2013-14 season are expected to hit $3.7-billion, which would be a 12-per-cent increase over the league’s last full campaign.

With the new TV revenue added in a year later, meanwhile, that figure will for the first time crack the $4-billion mark in 2014-15.

That’s obviously a good business story for Gary Bettman and Co., but the more pertinent result of much higher hockey-related revenues for fans (and general managers) is the impact it’ll have on the cap.

As a reminder, the basic formula for calculating the NHL’s cap under the new CBA is:

((Half of total revenue - player benefits) / 30 teams) x cap inflator x 15 per cent
