With no playoff game tonight and everyone focused on the latest on NHL moving rumors (sick of this subject), this edition of the Tracks will cover Thursday & Friday.
Today at 4 p.m. MST the NHL Network is airing another game from the Memorial Cup tournament live. Tonight's game is Owen Sound vs. Kootenay. The winner faces Mississauga on Friday. Also, don't forget Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals is at 5 p.m. MST on Friday. The game can be seen on Versus.
Feel free, as always, to add any links of interest you find in the comments section.
