Found June 09, 2013 on Rotowire:
Just a few things that caught my eye: Is Corey Crawford the Rodney Dangerfield of NHL twinetenders? He don't get no respect. June 9 sure is a big day for Patrick Kane. A natural hat trick sends the Hawks to the final. Three years ago, his goal delivered a Cup ... on exactly the same day. So Jonathan Quick is human. Go figure. It was just a bad game to have it happen. I can't wait to see Andrew Shaw against Brad Marchand. It's like a double dose of dirtbag, albeit dirtbag "lite" vs. twerp dirtbag. Ken "The Rat" Linseman would be so proud. Dallas Eakins appears to be headed to Alberta to coach the Oilers. He's great with young players. Fans in the Oil Patch will be very, very happy, very, very soon. Jonathan Toews may be Captain Serious, but he plays with a ferocity of emotion that could explode at any moment. At least he kept it at a near-boil Saturday night. But man, h...

Jonathan Quick robs Johnny Oduya with his blocker

After allowing a weak goal early in the 1st period to Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith, Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick showed why he is one of the best goalies on the planet.  Early in the 3rd period of a 2-1 game, Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya found himself wide-open at the side of the net with the puck on his stick.  He chose a great time to pinch and...

But congratulations to the Blackhawks...

The Bruins in Seven

It is time for a Stanley Cup prediction and here is mine.  The Boston Bruins win this series in seven games.  I really think it could be less, however the Bruins seem to like to take it to the wire (see their Cup victory over the Canucks), so seven it will be.  Of course, they are playing a high energy, high speed team that feel like they have been together since Juniors.  Patrick...
