Poor NBC. One contingency consternation if a dissapoint crazy Round One cost a NHL a tiny bit of money. One contingency doubly consternation if a no-name, tiny or temperate marketplace teams that are set to allege to a Conference Finals will cost a NHL some of a movement generated with infrequent fans by a Pittsburgh Penguins Cups and a Washington Capitals thespian breakthrough. But a Dallas Stars are on a fork of a Western Conference Final and Carolina swept divided a New York Islanders to allege to a Eastern Conference Final.
Dallas kick St. Louis 2-1 Friday night. Ben Bishop is vital adult to years of expectations. He would have been a Tampa Bay Lightning goalie in a 2016 ECF opposite a Penguins, though an damage in a initial duration of Game One launched Andrei Vasilevskiy and hermetic Bishop’s predestine in Tampa Bay. He’s been a outrageous reason for a Dallas run. (Dallas Morning News)
Bunch of jerks swept divided a New York Islanders. Wasn’t many of a array after a initial integrate of games. Once Carolina got their home throng in Game 3, it was over.
Remember Brock Nelson patting Curtis McElhinney on a conduct after New York scored in Game 3 and a Twitter conflict of duck-duck-goose that ensued? Carolina defenseman Dougie Hamilton let Nelson have it in a handshake line (CBS Sportsline)
Social media can adore it, though that is a BS move, dude. The handshake line isn’t a place for that. Do it in a final mins and answer for a taunt. You don’t settle scores in a handshake line when a other man is swallowing better and you’re untouchable. You might consider it’s lovable and funny, though we resolutely trust it’s juvenile derisive in a impulse meant to be about sportsmanship. Nelson and a Islanders won’t forget it, either.
There are 5 ways a Toronto Maple Leafs can save adequate silver to pointer Mitch Marner. One of them involves vouchsafing large names walk. Another is to play hardball with Kaspari Kapanen or let another group pointer him to an offer sheet. And yes, a Penguins should be salivating during that prospect. Or should we write “their” prospect? (Sportsnet)
Also from Sportsnet, a premier Oilers contributor Mark Spector updates new reports to settle a Oilers GM pursuit is Ken Holland’s…if he wants it (Sportsnet)
Hockey folks are leery of Edmonton, though my gosh a possibility to build around Connor McDavid should attract Holland and Edmonton desperately needs a solid hand.
There was adequate debate in Penguins land this week. Our Shelly Anderson took a mount on something many people can determine with–Restore Jaromir Jagr to a Ring of Honor. (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)
