*The Leafs actually choked away a 3-1 series lead and lost to the Montreal Canadiens in seven. Phew. And you think being a Flyers fan is exhausting. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*After an Avalanche-Golden Knights game in which some of the best talent ths NHL has to offer was on display, the conversation has centered, again, on a goony player doing goony things. Ryan Reaves earned himself a two-game suspension for his nonsense. [Knights On Ice]

*Speaking of, in what should be a surprise to no one, Gary Bettman upheld the eight game suspension of Nazem Kadri. We’ll see if he decides to take it to an arbiter. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Memorial Day means a lot to the men and women who served, and it turns out hockey means a lot to some of them too. [Inquirer]

*The Bruins and the Islanders are battling each other in the playoffs. The Flyers are golfing or swimming in the sea or staring at a lake in Northern Ontario while lounging in a Muskoka chair or whatever hockey players do when they’ve failed to make the postseason. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn something from how the Flyers fared against those two teams this year. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers are probably not going to win the draft lottery again, but they should still end up with a solid prospect if they do well in this year’s draft. [Inquirer]

*The latest 31 Thoughts, with a bunch of Seth Jones’ future and one on the future of one of our most beloved alumni. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, we may all be annoyed by Leafs fans. But reading this? We have a lot to commiserate with. [The Athletic]
