Les nouvelles

  • Playoff update:
    • NHL
      • Philadelphia/New Jersey: As I earlier reported, Philadelphia wins the 5-game series after a 3-0 shutout win over the Devils.
      • Chicago/Nashville: Antti Niemi gets the 3-0 shutout win for the Blackhawks as he helps tie the series up at 2-2.
      • Ottawa/Pittsburgh: Like my earlier posts, Ottawa won the game in 3 OTs for a 4-3 win and now trails the series 3-2.
      • Colorado/San Jose: After a switch in goaltending in the third period (Craig Anderson to Peter Budaj) for Colorado, San Jose won it still 5-0 with Nabokov getting the shutout.  Sharks now lead the series 3-2.
    • OHL:
      • Windsor/Kitchener: Windsor took another win at home with a 3-0 shutout and gets the series to 2-3 for the Kitchener Rangers
    • WHL
      • Tri-City/Vancouver: Wasn't much of a hockey game down in the third, and that resulted in the 5-2 lose to the Americans to be tied at the series 2-2.  (The score made the game look worse than it actually was.)
  • Because I missed to post yesterday (Canucks won 6-4 against the Kings and makes the series 2-2!), here is your NHL Awards update:
    • Lady Byng Trophy: The finalists for the most gentlemanly player are Pavel Datsyuk, Martin St. Louis, and Brad Richards
    • The Calder Trophy for the most outstanding rookie are down to the finalists: Tyler Myers, Matt Duchene, and Jimmy Howard.  Any shockers here?  Not really.
  • A littl more clean-up in the land of NHL.  Edmonton Oilers have fired Assistant GM and Vice President Kevin Prendergrast as of yesterday.  Prendergrast has been with the Oilers franchise for 20 years (since 1990) and has contributed so much to the Edmonton team.  Oilers release
  • Now that I'm done with the hockey news, a little news from the land of footballers and their wives.  Sthefany Brito and Alexandre Pato have decided to divorce (or at least be separated for now).  For a while now, Pato has been seen out and about at night without his wife and alongside Ronaldinho.  Brito got fed up with all that and decided that enough was enough.  Portugese original & English translation
