  • It has been 30 years since rookie Patrick Roy won his first Stanley Cup, and the Canadiens' 23rd. [Montreal Gazette]
  • Will Brandon Prust come back to Montreal? "Anything is possible." [Journal de Montreal]

  • So remember how Evgeni Malkin said there would be a Game 7 in the East? Coach Coop thinks it is high-larious. []
  • Finn Patrik Laine shone at the World Hockey Championships, and was named the tournament MVP and best forward, with Canadian Michael Matheson best defenceman, and a fellow by the name of Vadim Shipachyov selected by the media All Star team [IIHF]
