*PHT writer and FOH (Friend of Haggs) Joe Yerdon says the Avs players are rallying around the interesting tactics displayed by Patrick Roy.

*The Tampa Bay Lightning are down 0-2 to the Montreal Canadiens, and without Ben Bishop. Tampa, we might have a problem.

*Great American shootout hero T.J. Oshie has returned to the St. Louis Blues lineup for Game 2, and augments a lineup that already has the lead over the Chicago Blackhawks.

*Ray Whitney is proud of his NHL longevity, but is clearly looking to make an impact on the playoff drive for the Dallas Stars.

*Ian Mclaren felt compelled to share that he’s got his pompoms out for Joe Thornton in the playoffs. I can almost envision the Jumbo Joe posters on his fanboy walls.

*David Poile says the defense of the Nashville Predators should be the best its ever been next season with Shea Weber and Seth Jones.

*Columbus Blue Jackets star Ryan Johansen is making a big impression on the Pittsburgh Penguins in their playoff series.

*For something completely different: Trump and Bon Jovi among finalists to buy the Buffalo Bills. Sweet.
