Happy Memorial Day to everyone. This will be an abreviated Monday Morning column for you. I’m planning on a review of game one of the Cup Final as well as a preview of game two. Come back a little later. For now:
The last time the Chicago Blackhawks were in the Stanley Cup Finals was in 1992. Our own Jeff Bartl has his account of that series, 18 years ago. Go to Blackhawk Up for Jeff’s description.
The Philadelphia Flyers as you know are the Eastern Conference Champs after beating the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference Finals. Here’s Eugene Markaman’s recap at Broad Street Buzz.
You all heard about the problem that some of the Flyers had with their skates in game four against Montreal. Blades of Funny has a suspect list of the crime that some felt was committed!
Down Goes Brown has a story on how the NHL is attraction new referees.
Justin Bourne former player with such a great insight has a interesting piece about skate sharpening.
James Mirtle from The Globe and Mail says that new Tampa GM Steve Yzerman has his work cut out for him.
Touch the Conference Trophy or not? It’s going to be debated for a long time. Here’s Justin Piercy from CBC and his take on the superstition.
Thanks for reading.
