Islanders News: Griffin Reinhart wins WHL MVP, heads to Memorial Cup, not to Oilers

"Some people say I look like the kid from 'Hangover,' but I will tase you if you say it." - Bruce Bennett

Here's big Griff, he's a champ and captain.

All NHL playoff series were extended last night, and that is a beautiful thing. Here are some readable things:

In the WHL, Griffin Reinhart's Oil Kings won Game 7 in Portland to take the championship and reserve a Memorial Cup bierth, and he was named MVP of the series. Which, on cue, means more Edmonton media discussing acquiring him from the Isles.

Here's big Griff's ginger beard. Here he is holding a nice trophy over his head. Or if you prefer the GIF versions:

Go here to vote for the Islanders goal of the year, maybe.

NHL Playoffs: The Habs destroyed the Bruins to force Game 7, though that won't keep them all from detention. (Meanwhile, David Desharnais swiped this puck off the goal line, causing Pierre McGuire to say about 17 different times "that's not a goal." Thanks, Pierre. Here's how to Pierre-ify your own web experience.)

Out west, the Ducks nearly destroyed the Kings, but let L.A. back in it. Anaheim still took the lead heading into Game 6.

Aside: With all the anxiety in Pittsburgh (noted in yesterday's links), I almost want them to lose Game 7 tonight to the Rang- ... never mind.

IIHF WC: Russia destroyed the U.S., 6-1, the largest margin of defeat for the U.S. against Russia since 1991.

Finally: Come on, Teemu. The proper response is to ask his mom out on a date:
