Laviolette a Predator

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NASHVILLE - The Nashville Predators wanted experience and a proven winner as their new head coach, and general manager David Poile believes that’s what they got in hiring Peter Laviolette - just the second coach in the franchise’s history. Laviolette has won nine of the 14 post-season series he has coached with the Islanders, Carolina Hurricanes and Philadelphia Flyers. He also won the Stanley Cup in 2006 with Carolina and coached the Flyers to the Stanley Cup finals in 2010. The Predators announced Tuesday they signed him to a multiyear contract. “We’ve taken a big leap in the right direction getting our team back on the path, and that path is toward the playoffs,” Poile said at a

news conference. The Predators reached the Western Conference semifinals in 2011 and 2012 but missed the playoffs the past two seasons. Laviolette will take over in Nashville once he finishes coaching the United States at the 2014 World Championship. He said in a statement he loves the Predators’ nucleus starting with defenceman Shea Weber and goaltender Pekka Rinne. “My challenge will be to impart a system that enables our young forwards to thrive and reach their offensive potential,” Laviolette said. “Being a perennial Stanley Cup contender requires buy-in, passion and commitment from every player on the roster. I can’t wait to get to Nashville and get started on our journey.”


Durant voted MVP

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant has won his first NBA MVP award. The Thunder announced the honour Tuesday ahead of an afternoon news conference. Durant, a 6-foot-9 forward, won his fourth scoring title in five years by averaging 32 points per game. While three-time All-Star Russell Westbrook was out of the lineup following his most recent knee surgery, Durant averaged 35 points and

6.3 assists as the Thunder went 20-7 and remained among the league’s elite. Durant’s run of 41 consecutive games with at least 25 points was the third-longest streak in NBA history. Durant finished second to Miami’s LeBron James the previous two years. This year, Durant finished with 119 first-place votes. James was second with six firstplace votes and Blake Griffin was third.
