Sunday's Dump & Chase: Hawks, Bruins Take Game 1

That was a fun start to the Conference Finals, huh? Chicago took care of business in a tight game at home, followed by a somewhat hostile Game 1 in Pittsburgh. The Penguins get a day off to regroup, but the Kings are right back at it tonight. Can they steal one on the road?

VOTE: Who do you want to be the Rangers next coach? - NY Post

Having a coach that can get you to the playoffs is great, but they should really look to hire someone who can take them to the next level. They shouldn't accept mediocrity. So I'd vote for the Rangers to hire someone like that.
