Klinger and the Swedes win a gold medal at the 2017 Worlds, Who should the Stars protect in the Expansion Draft, Pens put 7 against the Sens, Ulf Samuelsson leading Candidate for Hawks assistant

Dallas Stars defensemen John Klingberg helped Team Sweden win the Gold Medal yesterday in the 2017 World Championship. The game was decided in a shootout. Val Nichushkin had 3 assists for Team Russia to help them win the Bronze. (Stars Inside Edge)

Team Canada may want to have the tiebreaker rule changed in International play, after another heartbreaking loss.

Hopefully Henrik Lundqvist is okay after being bowled over by Leafs forward William Nylander during the postgame celebration. Nylander was named MVP of the tournament.

Former Stars center and King Henrik’s twin brother Joel Lundqvist accepting the trophy for the Swedes as team captain. Believe it or not but Joel was drafted in Round 3 of the 2000 draft and Henrik went in the 7th.

The top 3 players for each team in the tournament:

For some reasons Mike Heika’s weekly Q&A session wasn’t ready for my Tuesday (May 17) Links story. You can find them here. (SportsDay DFW)

Who should Dallas protect for the upcoming expansion draft? Reminder teams can protect 1 goalie, 7 forwards and 3 defensemen. (The Hockey Writers)

Not sure what happened to the Ottawa Senators yesterday afternoon but the Penguins were able to score a touchdown against them as they chased Sens goalie Craig Anderson not once but twice in the 7-0 win. The Pens lead the series 3-2 with game 6 back in the Canadian capital city. (Pensburgh)

You gotta love Sens coach Guy Boucher’s reaction during the postgame press conference.

Boucher thinks Ottawa can bounce back in game 6. (NHL)

Pens forward Jake Guentzel has had an impressive playoff so far including goals in 7 straight games. Is he really that good or is skating on a line with Sidney Crosby inflating his numbers. (Dobber Hockey)

Even though defensemen Erik Karlsson left the game, he expects to play in game 6. Karlsson left as a precautionary measure when the game got out of hand. (NHL)

Who are some of the unexpected players that have amped their performances up during this season’s playoffs? (The Hockey News)

The Preds are having to rely on their AHL team, the Milwaukee Admirals, for depth players to replace their top 2 centers Ryan Johansen and Mike Fisher who are out with injuries. (NHL)

Grapes weighs in on the physicality of the Ducks vs Predators series.

The most hated player Corey Perry up to his old tricks.

Could Ulf Samuelsson be joining former teammate Joel Quenneville behind the Hawks bench? Samuelsson is the leading candidate to replace fired assistant Mike Kitchen. Quenneville and Samuelsson played together with the Hartford Whalers. Ulf is the current coach of the Charlotte Checkers (AHL). (Second City Hockey)
