*One last Game 7 in this second round of the playoffs tonight. It’s been fun. (GO SHARKS!!! - Ed.)

*So the Flyers have changed their coaching staff top to bottom, but Ian Laperriere remains. What’s that about? [BSH]

*Speaking of those new coaches; do these hires speak to a regression for the Flyers, culture-wise? [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Worlds are about to start, and if you’re interested in following that tournament this handy primer will be helpful for you. [Stanley Cup of Chowder]

*Speaking of the (ugh) Bruins, Charlie McAvoy will be suspended for one measly game for headhunting in Game 6 against the BJs. A hit, for which he received a minor. Which was in itself absurd. [ProHockeyTalk]

*One of the reasons that made it easy to root for the Blue Jackets these playoffs is that at the deadline, while on the bubble, they decided to go all in and make a run for it. It would be fun if more teams did that, eh? But they fell short. So now what? [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, DGB has compiled a list of some of the most terrible goals allowed by an NHL goaltender and they’re really fun to watch. Use it to get over the hump. [The Athletic]
