Morning Skate: Blackhawks' stunning loss leaves West wide open


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while knowing I’m Canada because they’re doing a big Bill Barilko feature on their version of SportsCentre.
-- Fernando Pisani and Raffi Torres dropped in to visit with the Edmonton Oilers and talk about their 2006 postseason while perhaps giving a little luck to the Oil.

-- Don Henderson, the ref taken out by Dennis Wideman, is suing Wideman and the Flames for more than $10 million. This has the potential to be a pretty nasty case in court. Interesting to see how it'll be handled.
-- FOH (Friend of Haggs) Tracey Myers and Chris Boden break down the Chicago Blackhawks' sweep at the hands of the Nashville Predators, a loss that, I think, has everybody stunned. It’s totally wide open in the West at this point.
-- Speaking of the Blackhawks, TSN gives them, and the Columbus Blue Jackets, the “bye-bye” treatment as both teams were eliminated from the postseason.
-- Frank Seravalli says the Montreal Canadiens are showing a lack of “killer instinct” as they sit on the brink of elimination. Max Pacioretty has been a total no-show in the series for the Habs.
--- Here are some options for the Buffalo Sabres, courtesy of Puck Daddy, after they cleaned house firing Tim Murray and Dan Bylsma this week.

-- For something completely different: Congrats to Toucher and Rich and everybody at the Sports Hub for again taking home all the top ratings.
