Yesterday was certainly a day rich in stories, both in Montreal and across the league.
As you well know by now, Marc Bergevin was named the Montreal Canadiens' 17th General Manager. Kamal and I also covered the story earlier yesterday, which you can find here.
While many questions are still unanswered, Bergevin quickly made his mark, moving embattled interim head coach Randy Cunneyworth back to his post as assistant coach. He also made it clear that whoever becomes the new head coach will decide whether Cuneyworth remains.
Elsewhere, the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals played the longest game in these playoffs, needing three overtime periods before Marian Gaborik potted the game winning goal for the Blueshirts.
Meanwhile, the Nashville Predators' gamble of sitting top-scorers Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn paid off, as they defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 2-0.
It's never dull at this time of year, is it?
