from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, • Don’t be surprised if Adam Oates gets an interview in Washington. He played there (for George McPhee) when the Capitals went to the final in 1998 and is a huge part of the New Jersey coaching staff. There are a lot of parallels between good friends Kovalchuk and Alexander Ovechkin, and Oates played an important role in getting the former to fit in with the Devils. • The NHL measures legality of goaltender pads by each person’s individual height. No goalie wore shorter ones by those guidelines than Brodeur, who made a switch around All-Star weekend. He added an inch of length and widened the tops, also by an inch. The changes were to protect the five-hole. His save percentage before All-Star was .895. After, it jumped to .921. The weird thing is he’s given up 10 goals through the five-hole in the playoffs - including Colin Fraser’s series-opener in Game 1. read on for more thoughts plus a look at Nicklas Lidstrom…
