- CanesAndBluesFan takes a look at whether or not Corsi changes with age . . . and finds results to be a bit inconclusive. [SLGT]
- The Canadiens beat the Bruins 3-1 and won Game Seven over the Bruins in Boston. The lone Boston goal was scored by Jarome Iginla, who goes Cup-less yet again. Which makes me a sad panda. [Eyes on the Prize]
- There was a bit of a kerfuffle in the handshake line involving Milan Lucic and Dale Weise, which raises the question . . . WHY THE FUCK DO THEY DO THIS GODDAMN THING ANYWAY? The handshake line is such a bullshit gesture that barely has anything to do with sportsmanship anymore anyway. [Puck Daddy]
- The Kings beat the Ducks 2-1 to force a Game Seven in Anaheim on Friday. So that's one series that goes six and all three others going seven. That's pretty fun, I suppose. [Jewels From The Crown]
- No games tonight. DAMN IT ALL.
- Ryan Lambert takes on water squirters, both SoCal goalies, nut-spearing and other shit in his weekly Power Rankings. [Puck Daddy]

- "OH, WE'RE NOT FOR SURE MOVING TO SEATTLE, YOU GUYS! DON'T MIND US, WE'RE JUST GONNA . . . Y'KNOW . . . KEEP GOING TO SEATTLE FOR NO REASON, DUDES." [KING 5]
- Michael Sam having been drafted by the Rams . . . well, that's big news. This is a couple weeks old, but here's a piece about how Vince Lombardi--who some consider to be the greatest professional football coach of all time but almost certainly the greatest football coach of the 1960's--was quite accepting of homosexual players on his team. Yes, in the 60's. A very "Old School" coach, too. [Pro Football Talk]
- Sorry, but I don't think "I had to make breakfast" is a good excuse to break into someone's house. [Y! / AP]
- Qatar is hosting the 2022 World Cup, but the migrant workers constructing their stadiums . . . well, some of them are not making it that far, and that's a problem. [Deadspin]
John Green, who apparently isn't busy enough with the upcoming release of the movie made from his book The Fault in Our Stars, tells us a bunch of shit about car names:
Rather fascinating, yes.
