ST. Willy Caballero Chelsea Jersey . LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said it was no big deal that he and goalie Jaroslav Halak argued about playing time during the playoffs, calling it an "everyday occurrence." Hitchcock and general manager Doug Armstrong both said Sunday that he didnt anticipate major roster changes after the Blues squandered a 2-0 series lead against the Los Angeles Kings and lost four in a row against the Los Angeles Kings after taking a 2-0 series lead. The Blues were the fourth seed in the Western Conference this season, but Hitchcock said it was better overall than last years team that had the No. 2 seed and got swept in the second round by Los Angeles. Hitchcock said the roster might change "five to 10 per cent." "What we need to do is become a better player in the off-season, not a better athlete," Hitchcock said. Addressing Halak, Hitchcock said hed have been surprised if the goalie was unhappy about not getting used in the playoffs. Halak wasnt at the Scottrade Center when the locker room opened to media. "With Jaro thats an everyday occurrence like arguments and discussions that go on with players and playing time that was discussed in the meeting today," Hitchcock said. "If he wasnt disappointed Id be surprised. I dont care. If youre under contract, youre ready to play." Halak is among three goalies in the mix with Brian Elliott, who started all six games against the Kings, and rookie Jake Allen. "I think anything can happen," Armstrong said. "It was a difficult year, both Elliott and Jaro, and I think Jake took great advantage of it," Armstrong said. "Hes proven to us now that he has to be part of the equation. "So, its a cloudy issue right now to be honest with you because of how the season progressed." The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Hitchcock and Halak clashed after the goalie was late for a meeting prior to Game 4. Halak didnt play in the playoffs after recovering from a groin injury late in the season. Willy Caballero Jersey . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. Jorginho Jersey . World champions Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia won the gold medal with 237.71 points, Moore-Towers and Moscovitch followed at 208.45 and Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov of Russia were third at 187. http:///...laga-chelsea-jersey/ . -- Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Alrdridge were again the go-to duo for the Trail Blazers against the Kings. ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Chris Stewart brought his usual energy in his return to the Wilds home ice, and new recruit Eric Staal finished Minnesotas comeback in its home opener.Stewart had a goal, an assist and finished his second period with a fight, while Staal got his first goal with his new team to help the Wild overcome a two-goal deficit and beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 on Saturday night.Stewart scored to start the comeback and assisted on Matt Dumbas power-play goal that tied it, then Staal capped the three-goal second period to lead 3-2.I have high praise for Stew and what he does, Dumba said. Tonight, he showed why hes so valuable. He contributed lots and really got this ball rolling.Stewart was known for his exuberance when he arrived in Minnesota via trade in 2015 and helped the Wild to the Western Conference semifinals. Stewart played 56 games for new Wild coach Bruce Boudreau in Anaheim last season, scoring eight goals with 12 assists.The big forwards shot from left of the crease deflected off Ehlers skate and crossed the line before goalie Michael Hutchinson swiped the puck away. After a quick review, the officials call stood as a good goal.Stewart also fought Chris Thorburn in the final minutes of the second period.Thats one of the main reasons I was brought in here and Im just doing my job, Stewart said of providing a spark.Devan Dubnyk made 14 saves for Minnesota, which is now 14-0-2 in its home openers at the Xcel Energy Center. Jonas Brodin added a goal for the Wild.Nikolaj Ehlers, Blake Wheeler and Mark Schiefele scored for Winnipeg. Hutchinson stopped 27 shots.Maybe subconsciously, Wheeler said of letting up after scoring twice in the final 71 seconds of the first period. It didnt feel that way in the room and it didnt feel that way on the bench, but maybe we were a little bit casual, feeling good about ourselves. But from what we were talking about in here and on the bench, it didnt seem that way.Minnesota dropped its opener under Boudreau at St. Louiss on Thursday and was booed off the home ice following the first period Saturday after Wheeler tipped home a shot from Dustin Byfuglien with 2. Willian Jersey. .6 seconds left.The Wild came out stronger in the second and outshot Winnipeg 12-2 in the period.Mistakes were made, it was obvious, Staal said. But there was choice words by Bruce, I guess you could say, but they were the right things said. I think everybody knew that if we got to our game and got on our toes a little bit more that we would feel the momentum shift, and it did.Schiefeles goal with 18.7 seconds left stood after a video review determined Mathieu Perrault didnt cause goaltender interference after crashing into Dubnyk.All things open up after chaos gets created and we didnt create enough chaos in the offensive zone to create some of the plays we were looking for, Jets coach Paul Maurice said.Game notes Jets F Bryan Little missed the game with a lower body injury sustained in the season opener. Coach Paul Maurice told reporters the injury doesnt require surgery, but Little is out indefinitely. ... With Little out, Maurice shuffled his lines and No. 2 overall draft pick Patrik Laine was on the first line after scoring in his NHL debut. Laine played with Schiefele and captain Blake Wheeler.
