Quick Strikes for Friday, April 10

Last night was beautiful, tragic, surprising, exciting, you name it. Lots of news from around the NHL as the playoffs draw closer and some teams are in while others are not.

Let me just preface this Quick Strikes with this comment: a lot of stuff went down in the NHL last night. A lot. Of. Stuff. So, while there is plenty of great feature writing, analysis, and editorials I could link in this space, I am saving most of those links for another day. What follows is the best I can do to recap everything that happened on Thursday night, as several teams were eliminated from playoff contention and a few others got some help they probably weren't counting on.
