A look at news from around the league...
No. 2 Chicago Blackhawks vs. No. 3 Vancouver Canucks, 9:30 p.m. (Blackhawks lead 3-2)
• Anybody who thinks they have a handle on the Hawks-Canucks series doesn't. Anybody predicting the outcome is guessing. Never has a 3-2 lead felt like a series that's all tied up. The home team has won once in five games. The Canucks had a chance to bury the Hawks in Game 2 and failed. They had a chance to seize control in Game 3 and failed. The Hawks had a chance to clinch at home and failed. In four of the five games, the team that outhit the other lost. [ Chicago Sun-Times ]
• The Flyers seem to have found the formula for success. The higher the body count, the better they play. This time, they lost goalie Brian Boucher, and their young offensive star Claude Giroux, but still won Game 6 with a 4-0 victory. [ Philadelphia News/Inquirer ]
• Even though Bruins lead series, it feels like they are playing from behind. [ Boston Globe ]
