Custance: Projecting the Red Wings’ contracts and summer salary-cap situation | The Athletic

This article is behind a paywall and I didn’t read it because I’m not a subscriber. I’m linking to it anyway because there weren’t many interesting Detroit articles yesterday.

Capitals force Game 7 vs. Lightning with all-around effort | NBC Sports

Holy shit... it just might actually be the Capitals’ year. The talk of the Stanley Cup Playoffs has been all Vegas Golden Knights lately (and rightfully so), but the Caps might just sneak up and ruin the expansion party. Winning game 7 against the Lightning won’t be easy. Can Washington do it? I don’t see why they can’t do it. Give me Alex Ovechkin versus Marc-Andre Fleury and George McPhee. That’s the Stanley Cup Final we need to have.
