Fresh Links: SELKE SELKE SELKE Edition

WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 22: Tyler Seguin #19 celebrates with Patrice Bergeron #37 of the Boston Bruins after scoring the game winning goal in overtime against the Washington Capitals in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Verizon Center on April 22, 2012 in Washington, DC.

Congratulations, Bruins: you have outlasted not only both of 99% of the media's favorite picks for the Stanley Cup Finals, but also the Red Wings and the Sharks. If Ottawa and Phoenix close their respective doors tonight, that means only two series will still need to be decided - Bruins/Capitals and New Jersey/Florida.

Am I the only one who keeps forgetting about Devils/Panthers or....?

Also, as I write this, Patrice Bergeron was just nominated for the Selke Trophy! FINALLY.

After the jump, the Bruins are awesome (as usual), the Rangers are in trouble without Brian Boyle, let's laugh at some eliminated teams, and more...
