[Mother's Day Bits] Don't squirt water guns in the house; Oil Kings closing in; Gibson is Golden

What do you get the mom that has everything? - Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Shawn, knock it off.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, wives, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, cousins and any other ladies who keep our lives moving in the right direction (or, in my case, moving at all).

The NHL obviously wants you to spend the afternoon at Mom's house because there's no matinee hockey today. Rangers-Bruins Game 6 is at 7 pm tonight from The Garden, while Blackhawks and Wild are back in Chicago for Game 5 at 9 pm. Penguins can advance with a win.

NHL Playoffs:

IIHF World Championships:

  • The U.S. beat Switzerland 3-2 on Saturday for their second win in as many games at the Worlds. Team USA"s next game is Monday at 1:30 pm versus Mother Russia.
