*Former fiery Philly goaltender Ron Hextall to be named next general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers in a move that has been percolating for a while with the Broad Street Bullies. Maybe now they can find themselves a permanent answer between the pipes.

*Kerry Fraser gives his opinion on P.K. Subban knocking the net off the moorings in the third period of Game 3, and doesn’t feel like it was intentionally done to get a whistle amid some trouble.

*SB Nation with a piece about the value of P.K. Subban, and his ability to turn it up a notch during the big games.

*PHT writer and FOH (Friend of Haggs) Mike Halford has the story on Matt Cooke free from his suspension, and free to take another run at one of Chicago’s star players. The Blackhawks will collectively have their heads on a swivel.

*Chris Kunitz has grit and toughness, and is a perfect fit for the Pittsburgh Penguins during the playoffs.

*An interesting look from Puck Daddy at the NHL concussion protocol, and why it isn’t working.

*For something completely different: Cher and the Wu Tang Clan are collaborating on album. You can’t make this stuff up.
