Bad P.R.

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

There are fewer newspaper people covering the Stanley Cup final than ever before. Part of that is because of the state of the newspaper industry. Part of that is because it’s expensive to cover an event that usually two weeks and many flights long. And the later starts means it’s more difficult to get stories in the paper the day after games are played.

Which is why the off-day stories matter so much. It’s why you want to hear from Ovechkin, to tell you what this means to him, with the Capitals two wins away from the Cup. It’s why you want to talk to the best of the Vegas players, who looked wobbly near the end of Game 3, and you’re wondering, is this team finally out of gas. Or maybe you want to write about Karlsson’s remarkable ascent from nobody to star or get in on Marchessault’s story of how he bounced from team to team before the Florida debacle and this dream season in Vegas.

The best story at the podium Sunday: How T.J. Oshie and Matt Niskanen took public transit to Game 3. That was it.
