Fresh Links: Mother's Day Weekend Edition

ST PAUL, MN - JUNE 24: Ninth overall pick Dougie Hamilton by the Boston Bruins poses for a photo portrait during day one of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft at Xcel Energy Center on June 24, 2011 in St Paul, Minnesota. (Photo by Nick Laham/Getty Images)

Last night the Rangers did what the Bruins couldn't do and finished off the Capitals in a Game 7 on home ice. I'm curious to see if I was the only one rooting for the Rangers. I get that a lot of people say "well if we're going to lose might as well be to the eventual champs" but I've never felt that way. Especially after such a frustrating series I was quite pleased to see Ovechkin and Co. get eliminated.

That means that it will be Phoenix-LA in the West and New York-New Jersey in the East. Will we hear conspiracy theories about how the NHL wants a New York-Los Angeles final? I'd say there's a decent chance.

Finally, Happy Mother's Day to my Mom and all the Moms out there!
