NHL: Stanley Cup Final-Boston Bruins at St. Louis Blues Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports

Reading Assignments

  • The St. Louis Blues came through with a series-tying win on home ice last night in game four of the Stanley Cup Final. The series will now shift back to Boston for game five. [NHL]
  • St. Louis had a true home-ice advantage in game four. [NHL]
  • While it didn’t lead to a win, Zdeno Chara showed off why he’s such a respected leader on Monday night. After getting a puck to the face and suffering facial injuries, he returned to the bench with a full visor for the third period of game four, even though he couldn’t play.
  • Though the series is now even again, the Blues have been getting themselves into trouble by letting the Bruins get them off their discipline. [NBC Sports]
  • Instead of waiting for July 1, the Philadelphia Flyers took initiative and traded for the rights of pending unrestricted free agent Kevin Hayes from the Winnipeg Jets. They’ll look to sign him to an extension over the next four weeks prior to the start of free agency.
  • More than a year still separates Taylor Hall from potential UFA status, but the drama surrounding his future is already underway. [NHL]
  • Simply calling an NHL game strictly by the rule book may not be the best solution to the league’s long-running officiating problem... [The Athletic ($)]
