Around the NHL

  • So, um, the Sabres have won five of six. Not sure what they think they're doing, but saves like this one by Jhonas Enroth won't help them score a McDavid in June. [SB Nation]

  • Montreal signed pesky Brendan Gallagher to a tidy six-year contract extension. [Eyes on the Prize]
  • And the Wild signdella Marco Scandella to a contract extendella [SB Nation]. He celebrated by trying to kill T.J. Oshie last night for some reason. [SB Nation]
  • Blake Comeau might end up being a real productive bargain for the Penguins (while a McNally weeps). [CBS Sports]
  • Sportsnet will attempt to determine which NHL team has the best goal song. I'm sure it will render an unimpeachable, objective decision.
