Links, Ahoy!

TAMPA, FL - MAY 25: Martin St. Louis #26 of the Tampa Bay Lightning scores a second period goal past Andrew Ference #21 and Mark Recchi #28 of the Boston Bruins in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Bruins during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at St Pete Times Forum on May 25, 2011 in Tampa, Florida.

For those of you that didn't catch the Boston - Tampa Bay game last night, you missed a good one. For all the talk of Guy Boucher's 1-3-1 system, the stingy misers Tim Thomas and Dwayne Roloson, not to mention the inability of the B's to score goals on the power play, this series has been a wild, high-scoring affair.

Game 7 should be a barn burner in Boston, and given the home ice advantage, I like our odds of picking up that extra second-round pick. Oh yeah, and I picked Boston in 7 for this series in our PPP Playoff Prognostication Pool Pick 'Em, so I'm still happy enough with the result of last night's tilt.

There are a lot of links today for your perusal and enjoyment - even some Leafs-related ones - largely thanks to Jon S, over at Puckin' Eh, who has been busy posting four articles in the past 24 hours. Other highlights include some interesting debate about puck possession and shot accuracy at Behind the Net, as well as game recaps on yesterday's games. (Some teams are still playing hockey?) Of course, it's not every year that Jeff Carter is rumored to be a trade target for the Leafs (groan), so naturally, there's also some discussion on that front as well.

Follow me over the jump for all this and more.
