Some overtime hockey for your midweek? Let’s dish the hotlinks.

  • It took two overtimes, but former Oiler Pat Maroon took a 1-1 stalemate and made it his. The St. Louis Blues have taken the best of seven series by a 4-3 margin over the Dallas Stars. St. Louis will play the winner of tonight’s Avalanche/Sharks game 7 for the right to go to the Cup Finals. (St. Louis Game Time)
  • Czechboy is an optimist about Ken Holland coming to Edmonton. Well, sort of. Yeah. (Copper and Blue)
  • The Oilers confirmed that they will not be bringing Ken Hitchcock back as Oilers coach. Next up, Todd Nelson? (Oilers Nation)
  • Ken Holland has plenty of things to do this offseason. It remains to be seen if we’re going to see a patient Ken Holland, or if Ken Holland is going to walk in and buy the bar. (Lowetide)

Tonight’s game 7 is the last game before the Conference Finals get going. Sharks or Avalanche, who do you got?
