*The emotional, touching story of Dominic Moore battling back from the tragic death of his wife to play again in the NHL, and now being on the verge of his first Stanley Cup Final appearance with the Rangers. This is something every hockey fan should watch, and it adds a local touch because Moore met his wife while they were both athletes at Harvard University.

*Hockey parents in Canada are having a difficult time keeping their heads in the game with concussions on the rise.

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) and PHT writer Joe Yerdon has Brad Richards denying that the Rangers are the underdogs in this series against the Kings.

*New Nashville Predators hockey coach Peter Laviolette meets with Preds fans, and tempts them with talk of offense.

*Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin has a lot of choices to make with the Habs now that they’re entering the offseason.

*The Los Angeles Kings have proven that they are once again Game 7 warriors in this postseason, and played with the heart of a champion in these playoffs like many expected the Bruins to in the Eastern side of things. Clearly that didn’t happen, but the Kings look like a team that flatly knows how to win.

*Some great pictures of a dejected Youppi! at sites around Montreal wearing a Rangers sweater after losing a bet with Jimmy Fallon.

*For something completely different: a Newton South mom whose son passed away two years ago writes a moving letter to his friends as they graduate college this spring.
