The Senators gear up for Game Seven against the NY Rangers, a look at possible options in goal for the Maple Leafs, the Canadiens contact Patrick Roy, Bieksa was hampered by late season injury, and Andrew Ladd looks forward to suiting up for Team Canada at the World Championships.
OTTAWA SUN: The Senators, who’ve never won a Game Seven in their franchise history, hope to end that trend tonight against the NY Rangers. To do so, they’ll need more from star defenseman Erik Karlsson, who’s been held pointless in four straight games.
TORONTO SUN: Steve Simmons examines limited – and in some cases, expensive – goalie options for the Maple Leafs, including trade options like Roberto Luongo, Jonathan Bernier, Anders Lindback or perhaps Jaroslav Halak, and pending free agents Josh Harding and Tomas Vokoun. Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul, meanwhile, was recently named a finalist for the Masterton Trophy.
CANOE.CA: reports the Montreal Canadiens have contacted Quebec Remparts owner/GM/coach Patrick Roy, but no meeting was arranged. It’s possible the club could have a new GM within the next three weeks.
VANCOUVER PROVINCE: Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa was hampered by a possible abdominal injury down the stretch and in the playoffs.
WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: Jets captain Andrew Ladd is hoping to win gold with Team Canada at the upcoming World Hockey Championships.
