Well its been a while since I updated the former featherheads for you. I apologize, but College finals kind of took up the majority of my time, but now for the summer I’M FREE!

As for hockey, we know are into the Conference Finals and the San Jose Sharks will face the Vancouver Canucks in the West, while the Boston Bruins will have home ice advantage over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

There is a lot to cover so I won’t go into depth of each game and how many points were scored. Just know that the former Blackhawks haven’t really stepped up lately and the four which will be moving on are Ben Eager, Antti Niemi, and Scott Nichol for the Sharks, and Shawn Thornton for the Boston Bruins.

Enjoy
