Preds Official Podcast: Matt Duchene and his Finger | Nashville Predators
Another episode of the official team podcast, and if you've heard the news about what exactly happened to Matt Duchene's finger, well, you may want to skip this one. I'm sure it's still family-friendly, of course, but the squeamish be warned.
John Hynes' Future is Nashville is Uncertain | Penalty Box Radio
Boyd over at PBR takes a look at the coaching situation in Nashville as head coach John Hynes enters the offseason with a new general manager and just one year remaining on his contract.

Connecticut Whale Sign Olympic Gold Medalist Kacey Bellamy | The Ice Garden
The Connecticut Whale bolstered their roster during the PHF offseason, adding gold-medalist Kacey Bellamy at $122,000. Credit as always to the great work by the folks at the Ice Garden, especially Mike Murphy, who has been fighting to keep PHF pay transparent.

2023 NHL Playoff Recaps
Tavares scores 3, Maple Leafs top Lightning in Game 2, tie East 1st Round | NHL.com
The Leafs made this series interesting as John Tavares's hat trick led the way for a big 7-2 Game 2 win to even the series in the East at one. Tanner Jeannot picked up a fighting major while getting into it with Luke Schenn, but was without a shot on goal, point, and just one hit on the night.
Avalanche rally to defeat Kraken in Game 2, even Western 1st Round | NHL.com
This series is so much fun, and I sincerely hope it makes it all the way to Game 7. The Avalanche bounced back from the game one loss, but the Seattle Kraken may prove to be the newer, flashier version of the Avs from the last few years.
Rangers ease past Devils again in Game 2 of Eastern 1st Round | NHL.com
Chris Krieder is a beast. Plain and simple. Also some guy named Kane had three points, and so far the New Jersey Devils are struggling to make this series interesting.
Golden Knights defeat Jets in Game 2, even Western 1st Round | NHL.com
I'm not a fan of the Jets by any means, but I've always enjoyed watching Vegas play and if they survive the series, there's a chance I'll be in town for a second round playoff game. So let's go Golden Knights, right? The series is tied at one.
NHL News & Updates
Pavelski not with Stars for Game 3 of West 1st Round due to concussion | NHL.com
The ageless wonder Pavelski didn't travel with the Stars to Minnesota as they prepare to face the Wild in Game 3 of the tied series. The Stars will look to their reserves to replace Joe Pavelski and try to take the series lead.
Bergeron questionable to travel for Bruins for Game 3 against Panthers | NHL.com
In a series that I'm suprised is tied right now, the Boston Bruins will play Game 3 without the great Patrice Bergeron. The Bruins have plenty of talent and ammunition, but can Linus Ullmark and company keep the B's on top of the scoreboard?
