Good morning Buffalo Sabres.  You get to have a fresh cup of Ron Rolston with your coffee this morning.  Other than that – the playoffs continue to wager on, and the batles start to heat up, as most series are out of the sweep danger.

It’s good for the sport for all series to run longer isn’t it?  Well this is where I say its cynical to think that the league would want an extended playoff with more games to help rebuild their coifers from the lockout.

Here are your morning links from around the NHL.

Power rankings in the National Hockey League are fun.  If you think those goalie rankings are good, the IIHF power rankings are always good for a laugh or two.  [Bleacher Report, IIHF].

Outdoor hockey is coming to California.  The Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings get to play at Dodger Stadium.  [NHL.com].
