Allow me to be the first person to welcome you to the weekend!
We’re just one week away from the draft now . . . but before we get to the draft, we have to determine who will be hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup above their heads. The Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks square off tonight in a pivotal game 5 – read about the keys to tonight’s game here. [Bleacher Report]
Stu Hackel also provides us with a preview to game 5 – I really enjoy his style, and I hope you do, too! [SI.com]
What’s with people hitting the panic button over Corey Crawford? Yeah, he was pretty weak glove-side against the Bruins in game 4. Still – he did lead his team to the Stanley Cup Finals, you know, and he’s feeling confident that he’ll rebound and be prepared for game 5. [TSN]
Now – about that draft. While there are some (seemingly) sure-fire prospects, what about the wildcards in the draft? [Bleacher Report] (And are the Sabres paying attention! Wake up, Darcy, and do your homework!)
We all know the Buffalo Sabres are looking to move up in the draft – is a trade to the Oilers a possibility? [Hockey Buzz]
Finally, while you’re at Hockey Buzz, read up on the evolution of Jhonas Enroth. Seems like he’s ready to be the man in Buffalo – will he get his chance this season? Time will tell.
Enjoy your Saturday, everyone!
