The Boston Bruins stepped closer to the Stanley Cup Finals and a sweep of the New York Rangers last night; and the San Jose Sharks evened the series with the Los Angeles Kings. Are the Rangers done for – and are the Sharks a contender this year?
The Bruins have that tenacity and hunger and could be the team to beat this year. Is there a way to stop the Boston Bruins? [The Boston Globe].

Brian Boyle says there is still more hockey to play and that the New York Rangers are not done yet. Someone needs to tell Mr. Boyle that de Nile is a river in Egypt. [ESPN].
The Ottawa Senators need to take it a game at a time and play their game if they want to even the series or have a shot against the Pittsburgh Penguins. [Vancouver Sun].
Ottawa was seconds away from a 3-0 deficit, can they generate lightning in a bottle one more time to force at least six games? Earlier I wrote that Buffalo has a good chance of winning the Stanley Cup before 2035 (longer if the league expands) because a different team has won the Stanley Cup each year since the full season lockout. The New York Rangers, Ottawa Senators, and San Jose Sharks are our only hope to keep that hope alive.
