Wings Update GM Ken Holland is leaving for Finland to watch the prospects the team has play there and try to uncover undrafted talent. He will be watching Grigorenko, Hudler and Kronwall (who is a reserve for Team Sweden). Playoff Update Vancouver beat Minnesota 3-2 in OT last night to go up 3-1 in their series. I doubt very much the Wild will pull off another comeback to win the series. The GWG was a result of a high stick to Bertuzzi's face which drew blood and the 4 minutes. The Wild had the lead twice, both after goals from Gaborik but the Canucks came back both times. Vancouver's top line has been quiet and I underestimated the Canucks' depth, they're still scoring and winning without the Big 3. Bettman was at the game. Too bad the crowd didn't beat him up. Worst comissioner ever. Ugh. I'm sure he loves these playoffs. All the really good teams are gone with his precious small market teams soon to be the only ones left. New Jersey eliminated Tampa Bay last night when they won 2-1 in 3OT. John Grahame started instead of for Nikolai Khabibulin for the Lightning and had 46 saves. Brodeur dominated again (if he doesn't win the Vezina, there is something seriously wrong with the NHL) and saved the game a few times for the Devs. Once again, the Devils finish a series a while before the other series is over so they'll have plenty of time to rest. The fact that they haven't had a long series yet is not good news for the Senators/Flyers. Today's Games Anaheim @ Dallas, 3 EST, Ducks lead series 3-1 Philadelphia @ Ottawa, 3 EST, series tied 2-2
