Red Wings' Ken Holland supports Pavel Datsyuk for Selke trophy | Detroit Free Press |
I support Pavel for the Selke too, but there is no way he wins the thing this year. Not with all the games he missed due to injury. It's Patrice Bergeron's trophy this season. Anyone but Backes right?

Jim Nill draws interest from Montreal Canadiens, but he will remain Red Wings' assistant GM |
I knew Mr. Nill was a smart man. Way to prove me right.

Misconduct " The (True) Summer of Ken - DetroitHockey.Net
Let's hope The (True) Summer of Ken turns into the Year of Ken. If he pulls of the insaneness that is landing Ryan Suter AND Zach Parise...well...Mr. Holland would be our GM for Life (if he isn't already).

If you missed anything at all. George has you covered.

Midnight: Coyotes 4 - Hawks 0 - Second City Hockey
Another one bites the dust in the West. Chicago stays home and the Phoenix Coyotes have won their first playoff series since they were the Winnipeg Jets (but not the current Jets because the current Jets are the Thrashers and have never won a playoff series before). Quebec is going to get pretty solid team next season.

Senators can't close out Rangers, lose 3-2 - Silver Seven
The 'Stache and the Sens couldn't win Game 6. Ottawa now heads to New York for Game 7.

Neil on Del Zotto: "I’m sure I’ll catch him with his head down one of these times" | ProHockeyTalk
Well, you can hit a guy with his head down. Just make sure not to do it from the blind side. Don't make the head the initial point of contact. Also, don't lead with your elbow or leave your feet. But really though, Neil probably should have just shut up and not said this.

...what, no Nicklas Lidstrom?
