Around the NHL...

In addition to the Predators 6-3 loss to the Ducks, the other Western Conference series game, featured the Red Wings winning by the same 6-3 score to completer a 4-0 sweep of the Phoenix Coyotes in what could have been the last game played in Arena.

The Eastern conference featured a pair of double overtime games with Washington beating New York 4-3 and Pittsburgh beating Tampa Bay 3-2. In the other game, Buffalo's Ryan Miller threw a 1-0 shut out at Philadelphia.

There is no definite answer as to whether Lou Lamoriello will return to the Devils next season.

Bill Daly was on the Power Play with Scott Laughlin on NHL Home Ice yesterday. Here is the audio.

Travis Hughes has more good perspective on the new NHL-NBC TV deal.

SportsGirlKat has an interesting most of why bloggers are not evil as part of the ongoing dialogue of the MSM and blogger "debate."
