2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Games:

Ovechkin, Capitals dominate Game 6 to win series with Blue Jackets | Washington Times
I love me some Columbus, but didn't we all know that the Washington Capitals have a date with destiny. It's time for them to get the Penguins monkey off their back.

Emotional Leafs force Game 7 with Bruins | yahoo.com,
This game was fun to watch. Boston losing made it even better. (I wish Tuukka Rask played for a different team.)

NHL playoffs: Be afraid of the Nashville Predators | SBNation.com
"This was part playoff game, part dunk contest." I can't top that.

Round Two: Four Deciding Factors for Jets vs. Preds | NHL.com
Even the analysis of key factors seems very balanced. This is going to be wild ride!

Equal time this week for Dozer (though there is an adorable photo of Doug on their feed).

Jets determined to bear down against Predators in second round | NHL.com
I hear what they are saying....but history suggests there will be scoring - much scoring.

Wild won't bring back Fletcher as GM | NHL.com
Yep, those Suter and Parise contracts are looking a little suspect, eh?

Dallas Stars: Going after a unicorn? Here's 4 coaching candidates who could be on Stars GM Jim Nill's radar | SportsDay
Wouldn't it be great to see some new blood, instead of the usual merry-go-round?

Blues' Brodziak can't be certain he'll be back | stltoday.com
"Kyle Brodziak has been around long enough to know that being around a long time can be a problem in the NHL." If a player is done at 33-34 in the NHL (Matt Cullen being an exception) how will Shea Weber make it to almost 41? I think we know the answer.

NHL Mixed Bag: Penguins show they're still the team to beat on road to Stanley Cup | Sporting News
Seriously? They proved this by beating the Flyers?

Flames hire Peters as coach | NHL.com
Interesting. The Calgary Flames fire their coach because they didn't make the playoffs and then hire a coach who never made the playoffs in his last job.

Super Slow Mo: Playoffs Week 2 | NHL.com
Deep breath! Hi Filip Forsberg - Nice tie! Hi Viktor Arvidsson - Wicked hit - love the bench reaction! Hi Pekka Rinne - Oopsie! Hi again Fil - Filthy! Hi Pekka Rinne and Ryan Ellis - It's not nap time! Hi Austin Watson - Crunch! Hi Craig Smith - Ouchie! Hi again Arvy - Way to choke up on the bat! Hi yet again Fil - Bro hug.

NHL playoffs odds: Vegas sportsbooks could take a huge hit if Golden Knights win Stanley Cup | CBSSports.com
I was just wondering about this the other day. It's a shame that apparently no one made a sizable bet at 500-1. That would have been epic.

A gay referee tries to find his place in hockey | Boston.com
I really admire his dedication to hockey. Other than one month a year, it seems the culture changes very slowly. Maybe athletes could find better names to call each other.
