🚨NHL DRAFT 2018🚨
The first round of the draft is Friday (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVAS). Rounds 2-7 are Saturday (11 a.m. ET; NHLN, SN, TVAS)
.

 The Montreal Canadiens have the No. 3 pick in the 2018 NHL Draft at American Airlines Center on Friday, and general manager Marc Bergevin said he isn't sure what they'll do with it.
.
The decision could have a ripple effect through the rest of the first round.
.
As for whether Montreal can get a player at No. 3 who will provide help right away, Bergevin said Thursday, "It's hard to tell. There's always a possibility but that's why you have training camp.
.
"I could tell you, there's not one GM right now or one scout that can tell you five years from now who is going to be the best player. I mean, there are guys ahead now but you'd like to look at projection, where they're going to be at the end. There's no clear-cut [choice] right now as we speak.".
.
Defenseman Rasmus Dahlin from Frolunda of the Swedish Hockey League is almost certainly going to the Buffalo Sabres at No. 1. The Carolina Hurricanes are expected to pick right wing Andrei Svechnikov from Barrie of the Ontario Hockey League at No. 2. So the intrigue really figures to begin with the Canadiens at No. 3.
.
Do they select left wing Brady Tkachuk from Boston University? Do they take right wing Filip Zadina from Halifax in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League? Or maybe Jesperi Kotkaniemi, a center from Assat in Liiga, Finland's top professional league?.
.
Or do they trade the pick, which Bergevin wouldn't rule out?.(NHL.com)

🏎🇨🇦Lance Stroll's father says he's just a 'regular guy' who loves cars🇨🇦🏎@f1
.
Of course, the Montreal native is also a billionaire and his 19-year-old son, Lance, is a Formula One driver with the Williams team competing at this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix.
.
“I just think I’m a guy like any other guy,” Stroll said during a casual one-on-one interview Friday afternoon in the paddock at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. “Most guys love cars. I fell in love with them at a very early age. I had posters on my wall growing up of my favourite cars.”.
.
The first Canadian Grand Prix the elder Stroll attended was in 1978 when the late Gilles Villeneuve took the checkered flag.
.
“I remember it was cold and I was sitting up in the grandstand,” Stroll recalled.
.
He brought Lance to his first Canadian GP when he was 4 or 5.
.
“He’s still only 19, so it wasn’t that long ago,” the father said with a laugh.
.
When asked what makes him most proud about his son, the father said: “I’m most proud of how wonderful, humble, mature he is. He has a great head on his shoulders, especially for a 19-year-old kid. A lot of these guys here in the paddock, their heads are quite swollen and very different. Lance doesn’t have any of that in him. That’s not in his DNA.”(montrealgazette.com)

🏎Jacques Villeneuve calls driving dad's car in Montreal parade lap special🏎
.
Fans in the packed grandstands at the Canadian Grand Prix stood and cheered as Jacques Villeneuve toured the track in the car his father Gilles used to win the race 40 years ago.
.
Villeneuve rode his father's No. 12 Ferrari from 1978 in the parade lap Sunday before the race.
.
The 47-year-old went around slowly, leading the current drivers who were in classic sports cars, waving to the crowd as he passed each grandstand.
.
"It wasn't driving, it was almost like walking," said Villeneuve of the slow pace. "But to sit in that car in front of this crowd -- some of it from when I was racing, some from when my dad was racing -- it was very special.".
.
His father won the Canadian Grand Prix the first year it was held on the track that was renamed Circuit Gilles Villeneuve after his death in a crash at the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix. His son Jacques followed him into F1 and won the 1997 championship with the Williams teams.
.
He said it would have been a "nice touch" if he had been able to drive for Ferrari in his career, but that he wouldn't trade his championship for anything.
.
Current Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel paid tribute to Gilles Villeneuve and the team's enduring popularity at the Canadian GP after earning pole position on Saturday, which impressed Jacques.
.
"It came as a shock because it was really heartfelt," he said. "He passionate. He's also very aware of the history of Formula One. It was very touching.".

Game 5 Do or Die⚔🦅Capitals small underdogs for Game 5 with Stanley Cup in sight⚔🦅
.
@capitals 
@vegasgoldenknights .
History is squarely on the Capitals’ side going into Game 5. Teams holding a 3-1 series lead in the Stanley Cup final have gone on to lift the Cup on 31 straight occasions since the Toronto Maple Leafs rebounded from a 3-0 deficit to knock off the Detroit Red Wings in seven games 76 years ago.
.
However, the Golden Knights have defied the odds throughout their inaugural campaign, and cannot be taken lightly as they prepare for Thursday night’s contest as -145 favourites.
.
Vegas was denied an early lead in Game 4 after failing to capitalize on several golden scoring opportunities. But the Golden Knights have regularly converted on scoring chances on home ice, averaging 4.29 goals per game over their past seven, and have picked up the win in 12 of their past 15 overall on home ice, according to the OddsShark NHL Database.
.
In addition, the Golden Knights have yet to lose four in a row at any point in their short history, and have avoided consecutive defeats in their past 15 on home ice dating back to mid-March.
.
Despite those favourable trends, Vegas has a mountain to climb if they are to make history and march to a championship in their first year of play, now trailing as lengthy +480 underdogs on the Stanley Cup odds.(Sportsnet.ca)

🦅⚔The Washington Capitals visit the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday. The puck drops shortly after 8 p.m. ET⚔🦅
.
@capitals 
@vegasgoldenknights .
Both teams are rolling with their usual lineups. The referees for tonight’s game are Marc Joannette and Wes McCauley. The linesmen are Matt MacPherson and Jonny Murray.
.
The NHL hired Lil Jon to do a pregame concert, and the people inside T-Mobile Arena were extremely into it when they saw Jon on the video board.
.
The atmosphere at T-Mobile Arena looks incredible. Every Stanley Cup game happens in a loud building, but this one seems like it’s a whole different thing.
.
Both teams are in search of their first Stanley Cup. The Golden Knights are the bigger story since this is their inaugural season, but the Capitals have an underdog story of their own. Washington has reached the postseason in 28 of their 43 NHL seasons but are in search of their first championship.
.
The Capitals reached the Stanley Cup Final once previously, falling to the Detroit Red Wings in 1998. That was before Alex Ovechkin came around. The 13-year vet led the NHL with 49 goals in 2017-2018, his seventh time topping the NHL. Ovechkin’s 12 goals this postseason ranks second only to Winnipeg’s Mark Scheifele (14).(SBNATION.com)

⚔🦅How the Vegas Golden Knights built a Stanley Cup contender in just one year🦅⚔
.
@capitals 
@vegasgoldenknights .
Jonathan Marchessault, and how he found his way to Vegas, might be the epitome of how the Golden Knights forged their improbable run to the Stanley Cup final.
.
After the centre was surprisingly left exposed by the Florida Panthers for last June’s expansion draft, the Knights not only got the former 30-goal man for nothing, but Vegas general manager George McPhee also acquired Reilly Smith from the Panthers on the promise he’d select Marchessault.
.
The pair now make up two-thirds of the Knights’ top line along with William Karlsson, another diamond found in the expansion-draft rough.
.
That side deal with the Panthers is just one example of how Vegas went about building its team by playing opposing GMs off one another, taking advantage of clubs up against the salary cap, and identifying undervalued talent.
.
The Knights didn’t simply pick the best or the best-known player available from each of the NHL’s other 30 franchises in the expansion draft.
.
They instead focused on speedy, driven castoffs with a certain character and an ability to play the system of head coach Gerard Gallant – himself a man with something to prove after being unceremoniously dumped by Florida – while also making a number of trades that netted draft picks for the future... (Theglobeandmail.com).

🦅The Capitals are going to the Stanley Cup Final.vIt’s been two decades since a D.C. team has gotten this far. Now the Capitals can make even more history.⚔
.
@capitals .
The Washington Capitals have advanced to the second Stanley Cup Final in team history by beating the Tampa Bay Lightningin a conference final Game 7 on Wednesday.
.
Capitals fans have had plenty of reason to be nervous all spring. That’s because they are D.C. sports fans, conditioned over many years to only expect playoff sadness. The Capitals’ Final appearance will be the first for the city’s most popular pro teams since their own in 1998.
.
The Red Wings swept them in 1998, their only appearance in that round. That was the last time any of the four major D.C. teams played in a league final of any sort.
.
Ovechkin’s first playoff series ever, in 2008, ended with the Flyers celebrating after an overtime Game 7 goal in D.C. The Penguins won two D.C. Game 7s. The Canadiens won one in a shocking upset in 2010 behind backup goalie Jaroslav Halak. The Rangerscruelly beat them in three Game 7s in four years at one point. These have not been fun years for Caps fans, but in this Game 7 against Tampa Bay, they’ve gotten over a hump...(SBNATION.com)

Game 3⚔🛫Golden Knights hold off Jets to take 2-1 series lead🛫⚔
.
@nhljets 
@vegasgoldenknights .
Gerard Gallant wasn’t a believer in October, but the Vegas Golden Knights head coach was confident by January his expansion team had what it took to go deep in the playoffs.
.
The Knights led the NHL’s Western Conference final two games to one after beating the Winnipeg Jets 4-2 on Wednesday.
.
The Knights are two victories away from advancing to the Stanley Cup final, which no modern-era expansion team has ever done.

The series winner meets the victor of the Eastern Conference final between the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning. The Caps led that series 2-1.
.
"I didn’t know if we’d go this far right now, but I knew we had a chance as anybody else," Gallant said.
.
"In October, I didn’t believe that, but early January around the all-star game, I was a strong believer in our team. I knew we were going to battle well, compete well and no one was going to push us over that’s for sure.".
.
Knights assistant captain James Neal recovered from a Dustin Byfuglien elbow in the first period to score and assist on the eventual winner in the second.(Sportsnet.com)

@vegasgoldenknights .
History is being made again in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
.
On the heels of the first back-to-back champions in two decades, the NHL will get a new champion in the salary-cap era that began in 2005. Among the Lightning, Capitals, Jets and Golden Knights, only Tampa Bay has won the Stanley Cup, making this the first time the final four teams have combined for one title or fewer.
.
Tampa Bay is in the Eastern Conference final for the third time in four years, and Washington has made the playoffs 10 out of the past 11 seasons. Yet after one of Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh lifted the Cup every time since 2009, this crop of new blood is refreshing.
.
"They're all good stories," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. "The same old story sometimes can get old. Once in a while a new chapter is written, and it'll be good. This year there will be a new chapter.".
.
The next chapter begins with the Capitals visiting the Lightning on Friday night, followed by the Golden Knights at Winnipeg on Saturday night. It's a full turnover from the final four teams last year: Pittsburgh, Ottawa, Nashville and Anaheim.
.
The Jets became the fourth and final team to reach the third round when they beat the defending Western Conference-champion Predators on the road in Game 7 on Thursday night. Winnipeg is the final hope for Canada's first Cup celebration since Montreal in 1993 and is in the conference final for the first time in franchise history.
.
"Having some diversity amongst the league is great, and I think it just shows the competitive balance throughout the league," Jets captain Blake Wheeler said. (CTVNEWS.ca)

Game 7🐯🛫Stats through six games suggest Jets vs. Predators too close to call🐯🛫

@nhljets 
@predsnhl .
In a perfect world, the Preds and the Jets
would be playing in the Stanley Cup Final. On one hand, it’s a shame the top two regular-season teams have to meet so early in the playoffs but, on the other, the two titans have treated us to a close, nail-biting series in a second-round that has lacked those characteristics.
.
Out of 12 series to this point, Winnipeg and Nashville are giving us just the second Game 7.
.
“Excited and just waiting for the puck to drop,” Patrik Laine said the day before the series-deciding game. “So much on the line, it’s going to be a tight one.”.
.
The Jets sniper couldn’t be any more accurate. Whoever moves on between these two will be the instant favourite to win the Stanley Cup, though the Vegas Golden Knights won’t be a slouch in the conference final. But it’s hard to imagine any other series being as close as this Jets-Predators showdown.
.
If you’re trying to analyze who has the edge heading into Game 7, there isn’t much to choose between either team. Connor Hellebuyck has the advantage in net by the numbers, with a .921 save percentage this series out-duelling Pekka Rinne’s .906, but you could argue with the wins in Games 4 and 6 that Rinne has done more to steal games late in the series.(Sportsnet.com)

⚔Golden Knights silence Sharks in Game 6 to reach conference final⚔
.
@vegasgoldenknights .
Fleury made 28 saves in his fourth shutout of the playoffs and the Golden Knights have made it to the NHL’s final four in their inaugural season after beating the San Jose Sharks 3-0 in Game 6 of their second-round series Sunday.
.
"It was maybe a little bit of a shock, but I’m proud of our team, our organization, the way they did things here," Fleury said. "I’m proud to be where we are right now."
.
Fleury, who was part of three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Pittsburgh, is a main reason for the success. He allowed just three goals in a first-round sweep against Los Angeles, posted shutouts in Games 1 and 6 against the Sharks and was also spectacular in an overtime win in Game 3.
.
He had plenty of help from a crew of castoffs who have come together in Vegas to form a team that has a legitimate shot at a championship. Vegas next will play either Winnipeg or Nashville in the Western Conference Final. The Jets lead that series 3-2 heading into Game 6 on Monday night.
.
"We deserve to be here," coach Gerard Gallant said. "We’re a good team, we play hard and we played well all season long. The two teams we played were very good hockey teams and we were very evenly matched with those teams.(Sportsnet.com) @tvasports .

“I guess I can say it now. Boston set the bar for us, and we played them three times late in the year,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said after his team’s 3-1 victory over the Bruins ended their second-round playoff series in five games.
.
“The first two times we played them, they literally manhandled us … and we knew if we were going to go anywhere when we made the playoffs, or if we made the playoffs, that we had to be as good as Boston,” Cooper added.
.
“We beat them 4-0 (in the last meeting). I think that gave us a little hit of confidence. I guess a lot of confidence … and, ultimately we carried that through into this playoff round.”
.
Brayden Point and J.T. Miller scored second-period goals and Anton Stralman added an empty-netter with 1:29 remaining to end any chance for a Boston comeback.
.
Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 27 shots — 14 in the final period — for the Lightning, who rebounded from losing the series opener at home to eliminate the Bruins in five games.
.
“They’re a really good team. They have been all year,” Bruins winger Brad Marchand said. “They compete extremely hard, they have a lot of speed. They were better than we were in a lot of areas, one of them being puck battles and their pursuit. It showed up in the end.”(THESTAR.com)

Game 5🛫🐯Jets strive for simplicity against Predators in Game 5Winnipeg seeks to recapture identity, solve neutral zone issues in hopes of gaining edge in second round🐯🛫
.
@nhljets 
@predsnhl .
The further the Winnipeg Jets get into the Western Conference Second Round against the Nashville Predators, the greater the need to keep things simple, coach Paul Maurice said Friday.
.
The Jets and Predators are tied 2-2 in the best-of-7 series that resumes with Game 5 at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVAS). Game 6 will be in Winnipeg on Monday.
.
The Predators won 2-1 in Game 4 at Bell MTS Place on Thursday, buckling down in the neutral zone for much of the game and causing the Jets to stray from their speed game and start going in all directions - sometimes, it appeared, at once.
.
"Simplicity," Maurice said, asked what matters most for games ahead. "The game becomes simpler. Which would be a good view of what happened to us in the neutral zone last night. It was a very complex set of routes that we ran, hard to read.
.
"Define your game, define your game, define your game, so that you can get to the very basics of the game," Maurice said. "The hockey doesn't necessarily get better as you go. Fatigue sets in, pressure mounts. Simplicity is the key."
.
The Jets know Bridgestone Arena won't be a friendly environment Saturday, but they already have won there in the series, a 4-1 victory in Game 1. (NHL.com) @tvasports

Gerard Gallant had a message for the Vegas Golden Knights heading into Game 5 of the Western Conference Second Round against the San Jose Sharks at T-Mobile Arena on Friday (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVAS)..
.
"We've got to be better," the coach said Thursday, one day after a 4-0 loss at San Jose tied the best-of-7 series 2-2. "We've got to be ready to play, be ready to compete. And I'm sure we will.".
.
This is the biggest game the expansion Golden Knights will play to this point of their season, but it's crucial for each team. When a best-of-7 series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs is tied 2-2, the winner of Game 5 holds a series record of 202-54 (78.9 percent).
.
Gallant said the Golden Knights need to improve in the crease. .
"We just didn't get in the blue paint enough, in those tough areas, the battle areas, and that's what we need to do," he said.

The Predators were hockey’s best team this season, winning the Presidents’ Trophy with 117 points. They looked every bit that part in beating the Avalanche in the first round, even as they got pushed to six games to do it. In the second round, they’ve run into a Jets’ team that finished right behind them in the points race. Winnipeg won Game 1 off them in Nashville and almost handed them a crippling loss in Game 2 on Sunday.
.
But the Predators survived. They fell down, 2-1, in the first period, and after they came back to take a 4-3 lead, they lost it when Mark Scheifele beat Pekka Rinne with 65 seconds left and the Jets’ net empty. Rinnehad to make 14 saves across 25 minutes of two overtimes before his teammates broke through on one of the prettiest goals of the playoffs — a Craig Smith dish to a streaking Kevin Fiala, who deked in the nick of time to fool Rinne’s fellow Vezina Trophy nominee Connor Hellebuyck and even the series at one win apiece.
.
Everything about this series screams “slugfest.” The Jets were 4-1 winners in Game 1, but that game was a lot more even than the margin suggests. The Predators controlled almost 70 percent of the shot attempts and scoring attempts, and they lost in large part because Hellebuyck badly outplayed Rinne. Game 2 was much more even by puck possession, and the Predators won because they got one more exceptional play when they needed it... (SBNATION.com) @tvasports .
