● There's a new hockey book out that looks pretty interesting - Breakaway: The Untold Story of Hockey's Great Escapes collects the stories of players trying to get free of the Iron Curtain. [Hockey Book Reviews]
● Finally, some interesting notes on prospect forward Stanislav Galiev. First, with 72 points, he sits atop the Q playoff points list for all active players and the Sea Dogs' team leaderboard for all-time playoff scoring. And he is also quietly making a push up the QMJHL all-time playoffs goal scoring list. His two goals on Saturday give him 30 total and vaulted him over Mike Bossy. Four more goals and he'll tie his coach, Gerard Gallant. But he'll have to work harder to catch his teammate, Florida Panthers prospect Jonathan Huberdeau, who has 36. [QMJHL Histoire et Records]
