Round 3 is set. The weekend is creeping up. It’s Thursday, and here are your hotlinks.
- Joonas Donskoi scored midway through the second period to make it 3-1 Sharks. Donskoi’s goal would prove to be the game winner as the Sharks held on by a 3-2 score. The Sharks will face the Blues in the Western Conference Finals, guaranteeing that the winner of that series will play for their club’s first ever Stanley Cup. (Fear the Fin)
- Ken Hitchcock will not return as the Oilers head coach. Who’s up? (Oilers Nation)
- Will Ken Holland move a first round pick for a scoring winger? He might. He’ll also need to do magic with the cap between then and the beginning of next season. No pressure, Ken. You got this. (Lowetide)
- Nine years ago, Sheldon Souray asked for a trade. Some fans didn’t really like that. Yesterday, Sheldon Souray opened up to John Shannon about how that all went down. (Oilers Nation)
Round 3 begins tonight with the Hurricanes in Boston. Check back later today for our staff’s guesses as to who wins what.
