*Alain Vigneault said of the New York Rangers that “We may not look like it, but we’re trying our guts off here” against the Pittsburgh Penguins. It certainly doesn’t seem that way in the games, though.

*Interesting look from Down Goes Brown at the same old teams in the running for the conference finals on both sides.

*Marc-Andre Fleury was once shaky in this postseason, but he is continuing his steady play for the Pittsburgh Penguins since nearly choking against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

*PHT writer and FOH (Friend of Haggs) Jason Brough has the scoop on P.K. Subban controlling his emotions, and that being the key to his postseason success.

*The Chicago Blackhawks say they are aware, but unafraid of Matt Cooke. Having watched that Blackhawks team in the playoffs, they are a skilled bunch that can also handle themselves.

*The Bruins and Canadiens need to find their (wicked Boston accent) hahhhht, according to the Days of Y’Orr boys.

*Teemu Selanne reflects on a well-played, Hall of Fame career with the Anaheim Ducks as it winds it way toward a conclusion.

*For something completely different: Pharrell Williams and Jimmy Kimmel in a selfie competition that could only happen in this crazy social media world. Heard Pharell in a interview with Howard Stern recently, and he sounded like somebody with quite a bit to say.
