Hockey Notes On An Off Night

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- The Bruins may be on to something with the way in which they managed Tuukka Rask’s play during the regular season. Their version of Load Management. Rask started just 45 games, his lowest total in six years. And when you add the 17 playoff starts, that brings his total to 62 games. By comparison, Frederik Andersen started 60 games for the Leafs in the regular season and seven more playoff games. Anderson was brilliant in Game 6 against Boston and just average in Game 7. Rask is the leading contender for the Conn Smythe Trophy.

- If the Sens are interviewing Patrick Roy, what does that say for Marc Crawford, D.J. Smith, Rick Bowness and all the other candidates interviewed?

- It probably makes the Nashville Predators happy that Kyle Turris is captain of Team Canada. Preds want to move Turris, who has $30 million and five years left on a rare bad contract signed by David Poile. Maybe the captaincy ups his value.
