Late coach Pat Burns has been elected for induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame class of 2014 alongside Dominik Hasek, Peter Forsberg, Mike Modano and Rob Blake and legendary NHL referee Bill McCreary. The official induction ceremony will be held on November 17. The three-time Jack Adams Award winner for coach of the year passed away in 2010 after a lengthy battle with cancer. He enters the Hall in the Builders category. Burns won 501 games in 14 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens (1988-1992), Toronto Maple Leafs (1992-1996), Boston Bruins (1997-2001) and New Jersey Devils (2002-2004). He won the Stanley Cup with the Devils in 2003. The former Gatineau, Quebec police officer had plenty of proponents for his inclusion in the Hall of Fame, even before he passed away. "Pat Burns should have been in the Hall of Fame this year," former Stanley Cup-winning coach and incumbent Conservative Senator Jacques Demers said in 2010. "Not because he was dying, but because he was a Hall of Fame coach. Five hundred wins, a Stanley Cup, three times coach of the year - to me it would have been so special for him, before he died, to be in the Hall of Fame." It is the second consecutive year a builder has been posthumously elected after Fred Shero, back-to-back Stanley Cup Champion coach of the Philadelphia Flyers, was inducted in 2013. Hasek - a six-time Vezina Trophy winner, Hart Trophy winner and two-time Cup champ - may have been the easiest player selection for this class. The Czech Republic native won the NHLs award for best goaltender a staggering six times in eight seasons as a member of the Buffalo Sabres. He also played for the Detroit Red Wings from 2001-2008, where he won two championships (2002, 2008). "The Dominator" is 11th all-time on the NHL wins list with 389 and had seven straight seasons with a save percentage of .930 or better. "For me its a no-brainer," former coach of the Sabres Lindy Ruff said earlier this year. He brought the Sabres out of obscurity and led the club to a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 1999 against the Dallas Stars. He narrowly missed out on his first championship as a result of Brett Hulls infamous "foot-in-the-crease" overtime goal. Hasek would go on to win his first Cup as a starter with the Red Wings in 2002 and the second came as a backup to the championship team of 2008. Also cracking the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility is two-time Stanley Cup Champion and Olympic gold medalist Peter Forsberg. Forsberg began what would become an impactful, yet injury-shortened career, with the Quebec Nordiques after being acquired in the blockbuster trade that sent Eric Lindros to the Philadelphia Flyers in 1992. The Calder, Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner scored 885 points in 708 regular-season games in his 14 seasons with the Nordiques/Colorado Avalanche, Flyers and Nashville Predators. He won two Stanley Cups with the Avalanche. Forsberg also won gold medals in mens ice hockey for Sweden at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer and 2006 Games in Torino. He was plagued by many injuries over the course of his career, but it was tendon problems in his left foot that haunted him for most of his playing days and eventually forced him to retire. Another new candidate making the grade in 2014 is the most prolific American scorer in NHL history, Mike Modano. The former captain and last active player to have played for the Minnesota North Stars is the highest scoring American in league history with 561 goals, 813 assists and 1374 points in 1499 games. Modano, who appeared in eight All-Star Games, holds Stars franchise records for regular-season and playoff games played (1459, 174), goals (557, 58), assists (802, 87) and points (1359, 145), and also led the club to the Stanley Cup in 1999 over Hasek and the Sabres. The last player on the list had to wait an extra year, but in only his second year of eligibility for Los Angeles Kings captain Rob Blake is entering the Hall of Fame. While many thought Blake was a lock for last years ballot, it turned out there were too many deserving candidates and not enough spots to include the 6-foot-4 defenceman. Blake appeared in six All-Star Games (1994, 1999-2003) and won the Norris Trophy as the NHLs top defenceman in 1998. He also won his first and only Stanley Cup as a member of the Avalanche in 2001. In 20 seasons with the Kings, Avalanche and San Jose Sharks, Blake accumulated 240 goals, 537 points and 777 points in 1270 games. And last, but certainly not least, legendary referee Bill McCreary is getting his call to the Hall. McCreary officiated 1,737 regular season games, 297 playoff games and one All-Star Game in the NHL, as well as participating in the 1998 Nagano Olympics, the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics and the 2012 Vancouver Olympics. His model of consistency is no secret as he has officiated a Stanley Cup Final-record 44 games, including 13 straight finals from 1995-2007 and his last series in 2009. McCrearys signature puck flip before the opening faceoff became a signature part of every game he refereed. Manny Ramirez Jersey .

He had to beat Novak Djokovic to clinch that title.Djokovic is now making Murrays life very difficult in Australia.On Sunday, the No. 1-ranked Djokovic beat Murray 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-0 to win his fifth Australian Open title and once again relegated Murray to the role of runner-up. Murray lost twice before to Djokovic at Melbourne Park in 2011 and 2013, and to Roger Federer in 2010.Murray stood stone-faced at the trophy ceremony beside an exuberant Djokovic inside Rod Laver Arena, with the 76-year-old Rod Laver himself sitting in the stands, and again hoisted the runner-ups silver plate.Ill try and come back next year and hopefully have a slightly different outcome in the final, Murray told the crowd, which had spent much of the match jumping to its feet and exploding in cheers at the end of intensely athletic rallies.On a bright note for Murray, who entered the tournament ranked sixth, he will return to the No. 4 ranking and rejoin the so-called Big Four of mens tennis alongside Djokovic, No. 2 Roger Federer and No. 3 Rafael Nadal.His performance showed that he is in excellent physical shape, as was Djokovic — most of the time.The reason I lost the match was not a physical thing, Murray said.At times in the first half of the match, Djokovic stumbled on the court and appearedd to be limping.dddddddddddd He also received treatment on his right thumb. In the third set, Djokovic appeared to be cramping, Murray said.The third set was frustrating because I got a bit distracted when he, like fell on the ground after a couple of shots, Murray said.After struggling with apparent injury, Djokovic came back to win 12 of the last 13 games.He was moving unbelievable at the end of the third set, sliding and chasing everything down, Murray said. If someone is cramping in the final of a Slam, with such a long way to go, youre feeling pretty good about yourself. Maybe I dropped off for 10, 15 minutes there, and he got back into it.At Murrays post-match news conference, he was repeatedly asked if he thought his opponents stumbling was a deliberate tactic.I dont know, Murray paused. I dont know... I would hope that wouldnt be the case.Djokovic later said he wasnt cramping but went through a roughly 20-minute crisis after too many long, exhausting rallies.I was just weak. I went through a physical crisis, Djokovic said, finding himself on the defensive after winning his fifth Australian Open title.Djokovic shrugged when asked about Murrays loss of focus. In a match like this a lot of emotions go through, a lot of tension. Its not easy to keep the concentration 100 per cent all the way through.Despite the loss, Murray said he felt upbeat about his physical condition and a new level of confidence and calm during matches.Obviously I would have liked to have won today, but you cant win all of them, unfortunately, Murray said. Novak has won five times here now. Theres no disgrace obviously in losing to him. So yeah, a lot of positives for me to take from it.
