<p><b> The Bruins won't be interviewing Jeff Gorton anytime soon. Sigh. Congratulations to the Rangers , who advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.</b></p>

<li>  Just sign Dougie Hamilton already!  If you need to ask why, read this.  [<a href="http://thehockeywriters.com/why-the-bruins-need-to-re-sign-dougie-hamilton/">TheHockeyWriters</a>]</li>
<li>  Torey Krug is finding that his Team USA experience leaves him feeling he has a jump on next season. This has been his first time travelling overseas. [<a href="http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/05/13/krug/MQGkw1C4wgQRco1OD2NdyJ/story.html">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>

<li>  Looking ahead to the Eastern and Western Conference Finals, put your money on these horses for the wins. [<a href="http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/05/14/who-will-win-nhl-conference-finals/GPvEaPpXcP7OFqh2TFUHmI/story.html">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>
<li>  Not so fast, there... Raptor Rich Peverley does not necessarily need to retire if he doesn't want to.  [<a href="http://nesn.com/2015/05/report-former-bruin-rich-peverley-might-be-able-to-resume-nhl-career/">NESN</a>]</li>
<li>  In the interest of sportsmanship, kudos to the Canadiens and Carey Price on their playoff run. [<a href="http://causewaycrowd.com/2015/05/13/a-boston-bruins-fans-stick-tap-to-the-montreal-canadiens/">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>
<li>  The 2010-11 performance of Tim Thomas remains exceptional for so many reasons, including this one. This is good news for Price.

<li>  Joel Ward gets it. It ain't about pointing out to the center field bleachers with your bat. [<a href="http://deadspin.com/joel-ward-gets-hockey-better-than-lazy-sportswriters-1704224247">DeadSpin</a>]</li>
<li>  At least Alex Ovechkin can hop the next plane to the Czech Republic to play for Team Russia, IF Loui Eriksson and Team Sweden don't eliminate them first. [<a href="http://www.thehockeynews.com/blog/capitals-alex-ovechkin-to-join-russia-at-world-championship/">TheHockeyNews</a>]</li>
<li>  We're ALL upset! Why we all look wistfully at the Islanders and dream of Johnny Boychuk . [<a href="http://thehockeywriters.com/how-much-did-the-boston-bruins-miss-johnny-boychuk/">TheHockeyWriters</a>]</li>
<li>  (Former Boston College Eagle) Chris Kreider is the World's Most Interesting Man. He will chirp opposing players in their native languages.

<li>  It is beginning to look like Todd McLellan will join Peter Chiarelli in Edmonton.  [<a href="http://www.sportingnews.com/nhl/story/2015-05-13/nhl-coaching-changes-todd-mclellan-edmonton-oilers-mike-babcock">SportingNews</a>]</li>
<li>  In bad news for the Bruins, it appears that a defense first strategy no longer pays off in the NHL... [<a href="http://hockey-graphs.com/2015/05/13/nhl-defensemen-offense-increase/">Hockey-Graphs</a>]</li>
