Remembering one foggy night on deteriorating ice at Boston Garden...


  • Back in 1988, a power outage caused the suspension of a Bruins vs. Oilers game at The Boston Garden during the Stanley Cup Final.  [ThePostGame]

  • Looking forward, David Pastrnak will be a big part of the future of Team Czech Republic, if they hope to reemerge as a winning team. [NESN]

  • Look at these six Bruins free agents, and then guess who is a shoo-in to be re-signed, who will likely need to turn down bigger money elsewhere to stay in Boston, and who should move on.  [BostonHerald]

  • Former Bruin Glen Murray now works for the Kings, developing the younger players that displace old warhorses like himself. Dougie Hamilton 's payday is about to arrive, and the Bruins are in "casual conversations" with Adam McQuaid , whose offers from other teams they likely cannot match. [TheBostonGlobe]

Elsewhere around the rink:


  • A former hockey player from Massachusetts is making his mark by bicycling to fundraise in the fight against paralysis after having twice been paralyzed while playing.  [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Over the weekend, the Lightning downed the Rangers in Game #5. Ben Bishop earned the shutout, and the Bolts can move to the finals if they win at home tonight in Tampa.  [SportsIllustrated]

  • Meanwhile, out West, one Duck is on a mission, standing tall in net.   [Grantland]

  • Have 10 observations from this weekend's action in the playoffs.  [Grantland]

  • Czechmate, former PBruin and Bruin Vladimir Sobotka had bolted the Blues last season for an hefty KHL payday.  While at Worlds, apparently his agent spoke with the Blues about a possible return.  [STLToday]

  • Have another year behind the Blues ' bench, Ken Hitchcock.   [TSN]

  • Size matters sometimes, but small(ish) players are making a notable impact at the Memorial Cup. [TheStar]

  • There's a lot at stake in women's professional hockey, just ask the reporters hoping to cover the action and maybe even get paid as well.  [TheClassical]

  • Enough! The thrill of hockey is waning, and fancystats are to blame...  [VanCityBuzz]

  • ...although no one told the Coyotes , who have hired a young analytics wizard to be their new Assitant GM.  [PuckDaddy]

  • Happy Birthday, Mike Meyers, and as a big Leafs fan, we wish you better luck next year!  [BarDown]

  • Who better than Emilio Estevez to come out rooting for the Ducks?  [SBNation]
