Damn, more bad news.

  • Condolences go out to the Lucic family upon the loss of Milan Lucic 's father on Wednesday. [BostonHerald]

  • Jeff Gorton has received a call from the Bruins regarding the open GM position. [ProHockeyTalk]

  • The salary cap is forcing NHL GMs to think rationally. Boston had been living in the past for too long, while teams that relied on star players haven't done all that well this year, either. [TheGlobeAndMail]

  • Brendan Shanahan had his eyes on Peter Chiarelli before the Oilers swooped in. [ProHockeyTalk]

  • The Oilers may have to cough up a draft pick or asset to the Bruins as a result of hiring Chiarelli. [EdmontonJournal]

  • Here's a take on what Chiarelli might busy himself doing right away in Edmonton. [CopperNBlue]

  • Seth Griffith notched a pretty goal in the third overtime to push the Providence Bruins past the Hartford Wolf Pack last evening. [ProvidenceJournal]

  • Alexander Khokhlachev has been outstanding in the playoffs. David Pastrnak has played a lot of hockey this year, and is still learning. [ProvidenceJournal]

  • Zach Trotman logged big minutes in the record-breaking, longest post-season game in franchise history. Pastrnak was injured, but left postgame under his own power. Matt Lindblad is out for Tuesday after also being hurt. [CausewayCrowd]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Gary Bettman continues to maintain that the "Katy Perry" chants directed at Corey Perry were not sexist. Fortunately, he does continue to decry homophobic taunts. [WallStreetJournal]

  • On the other hand, the Calgary Flames took a proactive stance in denouncing harassment and specifically distancing their organization from miscreants. [TheProvince]

  • Twitter for the WIN- More gracious sportsmanship from the Blackhawks and Predators following the close of their series. BONUS: A number of NHL teams' Twitters played nice back in 2013.  [BarDown]

  • Behind the Goon... the story of the player upon which character Doug Glatt was based. [BarDown]

  • So, have NHL officials been told to swallow their whistles for the playoffs this year... [PuckDaddy]

  • ... or have they cost the Ottawa Senators their shot at the Stanley Cup with a quick whistle? [PuckDaddy]
