  • It's no secret that P.K. Subban loves the spotlight, and he isn't afraid to admit it. The star defenseman is primed for another big performance in the playoffs, but he's also ready to thrive as a villain. [NHL]
  • Speaking of Subban, he was able to snap an awesome photo with the legendary Bob Cole following a division-clinching shootout victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night. [Instagram]
  • Some big news to report on Sunday in Brossard. Max Pacioretty was on the ice for the second straight day as he continues to make progress in his recovery. We should expect some sort of update this morning. [TVA]
  • Youngsters Greg Pateryn and Jacob de la Rose go head-to-head in the latest addition of the Duel. [Canadiens]
  • There's no doubt Carey Price is going to take home some hardware at the NHL awards in June, but he's already starting to add to the mantle. The star goalie took home the Jennings Trophy, awarded to the goalie who gives up the lowest amount of goals during the regular season (minimum 25 games played). Price gave up just 130 goals in 66 games. [TVA]
  • Ahead of what should be a fantastic segment, check out this preview of Price's one-on-one interview with Peter Mansbridge. The interview will air on the National this evening. [YouTube]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Brendan Shanahan and the Toronto Maple Leafs cleaned house on Sunday. The team fired "general manager" Dave Nonis, interim head coach Peter Horachek and his assistant coaches, as well as several other staffers in a major shakeup. [Globe and Mail]
  • Chris Johnston offers his take on what might be the biggest offseason in Leafs history. [Sportsnet]
  • The Los Angeles Kings were clearly fatigued down the stretch, but apparently they were also tired of their head coach Daryl Sutter. Reports indicate that the team locked their head coach out of the dressing room following a game a few weeks ago. Yikes. [NY Post]
  • 43-year-old Jaromir Jagr is coming back for at least one more season. The ageless forward came to terms with the Florida Panthers on a one-year contract extension. Jagr had 17 goals, 30 assists for 47 points last season; ridiculous considering his age. [Little Box Cats]
  • And for all you Canadians, Sportsnet and Hockey Night in Canada have unveiled their broadcast schedule for the entire first round of the playoffs. [Sportsnet]
