WASHINGTON (AP) George McPhee will only get a ring if the Vegas Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup.Maybe he should get one if the Washington Capitals win.McPhee is responsible for acquiring 13 players on the current roster during his 17 years as general manager and also hired longtime friend Brian MacLellan Jonathan Ericsson Jersey , who became his successor and built the rest of the team. Kicked around the past five years for trading Filip Forsberg to Nashville for Martin Erat and not being able to bring the Cup to Washington, McPhee has his fingerprints all over this final after building the foundation of each team.¡±It¡¯s funny how life goes,¡± McPhee said Sunday in Las Vegas. ¡±Two years ago I was walking around Ann Arbor kicking stones and couldn¡¯t get a job.¡±McPhee went two years between his job as Capitals GM and his new one when new owner Bill Foley hired him for the dream job of his life as GM running the as-yet-named Vegas expansion team. From MacLellan to captain Alex Ovechkin, star center Nicklas Backstrom, goaltender Braden Holtby and management staffs on either side, this final in many ways is a validation of McPhee¡¯s philosophy, knowledge and career.¡±It¡¯s great to see him have success somewhere else,¡± said Capitals defenseman John Carlson, one of 12 McPhee draft picks facing him in the final. ¡±I knew he would, based on the pieces that he put in place here.¡±McPhee was GM when the Capitals last made the Cup Final in 1998 but had just taken over the previous summer. Until the past year, his greatest accomplishment was rebuilding Washington into a perennial playoff team and title contender that went to the playoffs from 2008-2013.After missing the playoffs in 2014, the Capitals did not renew McPhee¡¯s contract.¡±When you¡¯re working with (players), they¡¯re sometimes like your own kids,¡± McPhee said. ¡±You¡¯re on call for them all the time, you¡¯re trying to help them Womens Justin Abdelkader Jersey , you try to steer them in the right direction. Then you get fired and you¡¯re suddenly persona non grata because nobody wants to be seen to be too close to you in the organization. I understand that¡¯s how things change quickly and that¡¯s the business.¡±Things changed quickly because MacLellan went from McPhee¡¯s college teammate and roommate and then right-hand man as assistant GM to the person who owner Ted Leonsis said gave ¡±the most negative of the interviews¡± among candidates. MacLellan said he felt like he had nothing to lose during the interview process, which led to him landing the job at the same time Barry Trotz was named coach.MacLellan conceded Friday his relationship with McPhee was ¡±not as close¡± as in previous decades.¡±I think it just took a little time for things to evolve,¡± MacLellan said. ¡±I think he needed a break from the game, needed a break from how it went down for him here and it just took time.¡±MacLellan choked up a couple of times talking about glory days with McPhee, when they won the Central Collegiate Hockey Association Championship together at Bowling Green. McPhee and MacLellan have had dinner and texted in recent days about how strange it is to face each other after all that has transpired.¡±It¡¯s kind of a weird experience,¡± MacLellan said. ¡±It¡¯s a little awkward, but it¡¯s going to be a fun experience, I hope.¡±McPhee still has plenty of supporters in the Capitals¡¯ locker room, especially among players he stuck his neck out for. He signed Jay Beagle as a college free agent in 2007, listened to now-Vegas goaltending coach Dave Prior and selected Holtby as the 10th goaltender in the 2008 draft and picked Tom Wilson in the first round in 2012.¡±I have a very fond respect for George,¡± Wilson said. ¡±You always have kind of a soft spot for the guy that drafted you, that brought you into the league, that gave you a chance. ¡­ He kind of always had his players¡¯ back.¡±Not only is Beagle thankful to McPhee for taking a chance on him, but he also believes in the moves made to try to bring a championship to Washington well before now, even if they didn¡¯t work out perfectly.¡±The trades and the deals that he made were to win the Stanley Cup that year Luke Glendening Jersey ,¡± Beagle said. ¡±You can always look back and be like, `Oh it wasn¡¯t the right one¡¯ or `It was the right one.¡¯ But at the time it was the moves that he felt needed to be done to win a Stanley Cup that year because we had a team to do it for a lot of years.¡±Now that the Capitals ¨C and Golden Knights ¨C have that team, McPhee will be there each night to see one of his teams lift the Cup.¡±I¡¯m certainly proud of the Washington team and the players,¡± McPhee said. ¡±Really happy for them ¨C and really proud of this team we have in Vegas.¡±¡ªMore Stanley Cup coverage:¡ª TORONTO (AP) ¡ª Roberto Luongo joked on Twitter after Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner made celebrity cameo appearances in a production of ¡°The Nutcracker¡± that Toronto¡¯s dynamic duo deserved the night off.No such luck for the goalie and his Florida teammates.Matthews had two goals and two assists, and John Tavares also scored twice to help the Maple Leafs rout the Panthers 6-1 on Thursday night.¡°We hadn¡¯t been good enough lately,¡± Matthews said. ¡°Even against these guys last Saturday in Florida (a 4-3 overtime loss) we were terrible. It¡¯s good to get back on track.¡±Matthews had his second four-point game of the season, as did Morgan Rielly with four assists. Mitch Marner added a goal and two assists, Nazem Kadri had a goal and an assist, and Frederik Andersen made 25 saves.¡°We started on time,¡± Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. ¡°We did things the way you should.¡±Matthews had the 18th two-goal game of his career.¡°At times he makes it look easy and this league definitely is not easy,¡± Tavares said about the 1-year-old Matthews. ¡°To do it at this level that consistently is a testament to his skill set and his attention to detail. No question he¡¯s got one of the best shots in the game.¡±Rielly is the first NHL defenseman to reach 40 points this season.Henrik Borgstrom scored for Florida, and Roberto Luongo stopped 17 shots before getting the hook early in the third period.¡°After about the first 10 minutes, it was just a good hockey team playing a team that didn¡¯t look very good,¡± Florida coach Bob Boughner said. ¡°We had too many passengers. If you don¡¯t have 20 guys all playing the same way, you can get blown out.¡±The Leafs announced before the game that winger Zach Hyman was out with an ankle injury suffered Tuesday night in a 7-2 victory in New Jersey. Andreas Johnsson took his place on a line with Tavares and Marner Martin Frk Jersey , while Connor Brown was elevated to the third unit with Kadri and William Nylander.After the teams traded a number of chances early, Toronto opened the scoring with 1:43 left in the first period as its dormant power-play unit snapped a 1-for-25 stretch.With Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad off for interference, Marner drew all four Florida penalty killers toward him before whipping a cross-ice pass to Matthews, who made no mistake into the open side of the net past Luongo for his 18th goal of the season and a team-high seventh with the man advantage.Marner¡¯s assist was also the 125th of his career to pass Vincent Damphousse for the most by a Leafs player before age 22.Matthews put Toronto up two when he took another cross-ice feed, this time from Rielly, and buried his 19th off the camera inside Luongo¡¯s net at 3:50. Matthews, who missed 14 games with a shoulder injury, was playing for just the 21st time this season.Kadri had a goal taken off the board five minutes later after it was ruled following video review that he had kicked the puck over the line, but eventually got his ninth, converting a pass from Brown on a 2 on 1.Matthews had a chance at the hat trick on a power play early in the third, but Luongo stopped his shot before Taveres put in his 22nd from the crease at 2:38. Tavares added his 23rd off a pass from Marner at 5:41.Borgstrom got a consolation goal, his first of the year, for the Panthers on a power play at 10:28 through a screen.Marner then banked a shot of a Florida defender on another man advantage at 15:14 for his 10th.NOTES: Matthews¡¯ 18 two-goal games ranks him second behind only Alex Ovechkin¡¯s 19 since Matthews entered the league in 2016-17. Matthews has just one hat trick in his career, which came in a four-goal outburst against Ottawa in his first NHL game. ¡­ Hyman¡¯s status will be updated after having an MRI on his ankle. ¡­ Toronto defenseman Igor Ozhiganov was a late scratch with an illness. Martin Marincin took his place after sitting out the last 17 games.UP NEXTPanthers: At Detroit on Saturday night.Maple Leafs: Host New York Rangers on Saturday night.
