Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while loving that I’m in a country that sells chocolate Stanley Cups at Easter time.
*Ken Hitchcock is exactly the kind of coach that the Dallas Stars need after slacking off big time over the last season.
*FOH (Friend of Haggs) Greg Wyshynski, AKA the Puck Daddy, has the details for an odd Tim Murray press conference where he said, among other things, that head coach Dan Bylsma doesn’t talk to his players enough.
*The game of hockey was absolutely a big part of baseball Hall of Famer Yogi Berra’s life, so playoff time is a unique time to reflect on that.
*The Washington Capitals get ready to get their postseason going and they actually deserve to win it all this time, right? Right?
*Jake Allen makes 51 saves and steals Game 1 for the St. Louis Blues against the Minnesota Wild team that might just be headed for another Bruce Boudreau letdown.
*After a strong second half of the season that came up just short of the playoffs, Doug Weight was named full-time head coach of the New York Islanders.
*For something completely different: For those super into Star Wars, the deep dive theories about who Snoke is continue to abound.
