Elsewhere around the rink:

The Hockey News Say what you will about his contract, but Milan Lucic has had the desired effect in Edmonton. Edmonton Journal
  • THe NHL has posted a top 50 list of the past season’s overtime goals. Jubilant Sean Kuraly’s against the Senators in the playoffs and David Pastrnak’s against the Panthers both made the cut. NHL
  • Possession numbers are in, and yeah, that would be a former Bruin atop the Best Relative Corsi list. We know. Sigh. TSN
