This is going to be a pretty short tracks post mostly because there wasn't a lot of big news in the hockey world yesterday, at least not much that I stumbled upon. Definitely the biggest one though, perhaps the only big one, was that the New Jersey Devils defeated our division rivals the LA Kings forcing a Game 6 in Los Angeles. This is important because its the first time the Kings have lost two games in a series and their first loss on the road. What this means for all of us is that there is going to be more playoff hockey, which everyone should be happy about, except probably Kings fans who would probably prefer that this was over with.
Anyway all the news we have today is down after the jump feel free to dive in and discuss your favorite stories.
