*FOH (Friend of Haggs) Bruce Arthur has LA Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell extremely grateful to be back in the Stanley Cup Final.

*The non-call of goalie interference that led to an LA Kings goal in Game 2 continues to rage on for New Yorkers. It was also a stunning example of why goalie interference should be reviewable in egregious cases like this given that every NHL goal scored is reviewed by the league anyhow. There’s no excuse for a blatant, game-changing goalie interference to be non-reviewable given the kind of technology at the hands of every pro sports league these days.

*The 1994 edition of the Vancouver Canucks recall their Stanley Cup Final experience that left them memorable as the unwitting foe for a legendary 1994 Rangers hockey club.

*Speaking of the 1994 Rangers, Mark Messier checked in with Boomer and Carton on Monday on a number of topics involving Gotham’s favorite hockey club.

*The NHL is still grappling with concussions, and when players don’t want to report them to their team’s medical staff.

*A cool story of a fan that got his cast autographed by Patrice Bergeron when the B’s center spotted him outside the team bus, walked out and made the extra effort to have a shared moment with the child. That’s how NHL players make hockey fans for life.

*For something completely different: Tracy Morgan is critically injured in a car crash, but it looks like he’s going to make a recovery.
