  • The last time the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup at home was in 1938. That year, the Cup wasn't even in the building and their goalie had a little too much to drink. [Chicago Tribune]
  • There could be changes coming to NHL GameCenter Live if a settlement to a 2012 NHL antitrust class-action lawsuit is accepted. [Puck Daddy]
  • After a stellar campaign in relief of an injured Henrik Lundqvist partway through the season, it appears as though the New York Rangers are looking to trade backup goaltender Cam Talbot. [theScore]
