  • Last night's NHL scores... Canadiens 2 - Capitals 1 (MTL wins series 4-3)

  • The NHL released the second round schedule: [Puck Daddy]
  • This long layoff must be killing the beat writers.  Yesterday there was a Scott Hartnell in a slump story, today there's a Scott Hartnell needs to change his luck story. [Daily News] [Inquirer]
  • Yesterday, we looked at who could fill Ian Laperriere 's short-handed ice time, today we get stories about... how much the team will miss Ian Laperriere on the penalty kill. [Inquirer] [CSNPhilly]
  • But, they did come through with a good article on Jared Ross being called up. [Daily News]

  • The Phantoms helped the Civic Center make a modest $125,000 profit, not including money made from concessions or surrounding businesses. [PostStar]
  • The Maple Leafs signed yet another goalie, giving them the excellent problem of having three quality goalies outside the NHL. If only they had one in the NHL. [Hockey or Die]
  • Lastly, an amazing look at how a first round exit affected pending UFAs.  Players of note include Marek Svatos, Randy Jones, Dan Hamhuis, and Dan Ellis. [From The Rink]
