*Big game seven in Boston tonight, friends! Who ya got?

*Not a lot going on in Flyers-ville at the moment, unless you’re super into discussing long-dead singers and statuary removal. Anyhoo, what’s next for Scott Gordon? The Phantoms, one hopes. He was good up there. [NBC Sports Philly]

*After being eliminated by the Blues, the Winnipeg Jets will have a lot of reflecting to do this offseason. They have a lot of free agents to deal with, one of whom might be a good option for the Flyers to improve their back end. [CBC]

*The Blue Jackets are still the biggest story of these playoffs thus far, and their fans are treating them accordingly. Several thousand of them showed up to watch a friendly scrimmage that the BJs put on as they wait for round two. [The Cannon]

*The Flyers may be in a bit of a transitional period at the moment but the Penguins are in full-on decline, and there’s nothing wrong with taking a little joy in that. [Pensburgh]

*Nearly half of the NHL’s players hate the playoff format. Surprised it isn’t higher, honestly. [CBC]
