We’re close to a Stanley Cup Final.

Monday has arrived. How was your weekend?

In hockey happenings, the Dallas Stars and the Tampa Bay Lightning are up 3-1 in their Western and Eastern Conference Finals, respectively.

Ol’ pal Anton Khudobin was immense for Dallas on Saturday, stealing a Game 4 win for the Stars.

After the New York Islanders had an inspired performance to make it a series in Game 3, they got pasted in Game 4 and look to have their bags packed.

At this point, I don’t know how you’re not pulling for the Stars. Sure, Corey Perry is horrible, but Khudobin rules.

He was always quite the character while he was a Bruin, and was a pretty darn good back-up goalie as well.

Given a chance to shine in the playoffs, he has seized his opportunity and run with it.

His sometimes wild, sometimes out-of-control style of play is both fun and terrifying to watch...reminds me of another Bruins goalie.

Anyways, what’s on tap as the week begins?

Today’s highlight

He is truly a treasure.

Today’s discussion topic

Who’s the Bruins prospect you were 100% convinced was going to be the next big thing, only to have him not pan out?
