  • The Vancouver Canucks eliminated the Los Angeles Kings, 4-2.

Monday’s Scores

  • The Buffalo Sabres were eliminated by the Boston Bruins in 6 games with a 4-3 loss.
  • The Chicago Blackhawks eliminated the Nashville Predators with a 5-3 win in Game 6.
  • Client Jaroslav Halak stoned the Washington Capitals, and the Montreal Canadiens won 4-1. I am not writing a recap for that one…. better to look to the future than dwell on the past. Quick fact: the Caps had 54 shots on goal. Montreal had 22. Alexander Semin, Alexander Ovechkin, and Joe Corvo had more shots that the entire Montreal team.
Tonight's Action....
  • The Detroit Red Wings and the Phoenix Coyotes play one last game. Winner advances, and the loser will be playing golf in less than 48 hours. Simple.
