Anaheim rewarded Boudreau on Thursday for reviving the struggling Ducks after taking charge Nov. 30.
Boudreau won the 2008 Jack Adams Award as the NHL’s top coach. He is 228-111-48 in his NHL coaching career with Anaheim and Washington, winning 200 games faster than any coach in modern league history.
Salvador unlikely scorer for Devils
Stuck without a goal in the regular season, Salvador has discovered a postseason scoring touch, and has been a key cog in helping the Devils reach the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 2003.
After missing last season with an inner-ear concussion, the 36-year-old scored twice as the Devils ousted the Philadelphia Flyers in five games in Round 2. Not bad for someone who had 23 career goals in 692 regular-season games across a decade-long NHL career.
New Jersey, the No. 6 seed with 102 points in the regular season, will play either the New York Rangers or the Washington Capitals in Round 3 next week.
Around the league
WILD: Minnesota Wild signed defenseman Clayton Stoner to a two-year, $2.1 million contract extension. Stoner, 27, is one member of a rebuilding defense corps that the Wild hopes to improve in front of goaltender Niklas Backstrom next season.
STARS:Bob Gainey is returning to Dallas as a senior advisor. Gainey was the general manager of the Stars when they won their only Stanley Cup in 1999, then went back to the finals a year later. He was the coach from 1990-96 and GM from 1992-2000, leading Dallas to seven consecutive playoff berths and five division titles.
