Daily Dasherboard Sunday, May 5

Sunday, funday is here again!  And it’s promising to be QUITE the fun day of Stanley Cup Playoff hockey, as there are four games on tap today.  If you’re lucky, like me, your hockey-filled day will begin at noon with the Penguins-Islanders match-up, continue with the Wild trying to get one game in hand against the Blackhawks, move on to tightly-contested Montreal – Ottawa series, and conclude with tonight’s 10 p.m. showdown between the San Jose Sharks and the Vancouver Canucks, with San Jose trying to take a commanding 3-0 lead at home in the Shark Tank!  Exciting stuff.  Until then . . .

I’m sure all of you are enjoying the Stanley Cup Playoffs so far – but have you ever wondered, what secrets does Lord Stanley’s Cup hold?   Check out this video – it’s quite amusing!

Remember how I wondered whether Jhonas Enroth was ready to step up and become “the man” in Buffalo?  Here’s more evidence to weigh, along with some glimpses at what is going down at the World Hockey Championships.

No team looked worse in its 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs debut than the Toronto Maple Leafs did on Thursday night.  They sure turned things around fast, so should the Bruins be worried . . . or was this just an example of a temporary setback?

Bleacher report examines the 5 most underappreciated players in the 2013 NHL playoffs.  Personally, I don’t understand why Ryan Miller is not on this list.  Too soon?  It was probably too soon to make that joke, right?

Speaking of underappreciated, the staff here at Sabre Noise had some pretty sarcastic comments to make when they saw that I had picked the Anaheim Ducks to win the Stanley Cup this year.  Maybe this video recap of their 4-0 dismantling of the Red Wings last night will earn my prediction a bit more respect!

And certainly not underappreciated after Saturday’s Kentucky Derby win is Orb, whose bio and thrilling Derby win can be found here.
