    • Skater down - An Alex Ovechkin check + Alex Ovechkin shot = a trip down the tunnel with the trainer for Isles d-man Calvin de Haan. [RMNB, SI]

    • Congrats to the Reading Royals, who claimed the regular season ECHL Eastern Conference crown with a victory over Kalamazoo. [@RRoyalsHockey]
  • Three is the number, and the number shall be three. Two and especially one are right out. [WaPo]
