TSN: Is Atlanta in play? The key point is the question mark at the end of this article’s title. Nobody, even those in the “know’ seem to be able to give a clear indication as to which franchise is in play. One week it’s for sure Phoenix, then the next it’s Atlanta.

Winnipeg Free Press: Moose slip noose. Congrats to the Manitoba Moose (Vancouver Canucks farm team) who came back from a 3-1 series deficit to win Game 7 against the Lake Erie Monsters (Colorado Avalanche farm team) 4-1 last night.
