*The aforementioned Leafs game featured a really, really scary moment when John Tavares went down and took an accidental knee to the head. Just awful stuff. [Sportsnet]

*Little bit more in-depth explanation of those draft lottery odds, should you be interested. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The IIHF World Championship tourney kicks off today, and with a few Flyers taking part, you may want to check this out. Here’s a little preview from our pals in Calgary. [Matchsticks & Gasoline]

*Johnny Gaudreau may not want to come home as much as we’d like!! What a traitor smdh. [TSN]

*The NHL is not yet capitalizing on the wide world of sports gambling that has opened up. But why? You may be shocked to learn that the league is getting in its own way. Again. [The Athletic]
