Dallas Stars Daily Links: The Morning After
I’m at a loss for words. So I’m just going to let the Dallas Stars do it for me.
Ben Bishop: "When you don't have a chance to wake up tomorrow and practice or think about where you are going to play next, it's sombering."— Matthew DeFranks (@MDeFranks) May 8, 2019
John Klingberg: "“I’m pretty empty right now."
Tyler Seguin: "Pretty empty."
Here’s the captain, Jamie Benn:

Around the League
The Edmonton Oilers officially introduced Ken Holland as their new General Manager yesterday:
"I am very happy to be joining the Edmonton Oilers. I believe we can build something special in Edmonton & I look forward to putting a plan in place to make the Oilers a consistently successful team." https://t.co/p4VOIQrMC8— Edmonton Oilers (@EdmontonOilers) May 7, 2019
Now where have I heard this before...?
Not surprisingly, the Oilers will replace Ken Hitchcock as head coach. Decent possibility Hitchcock stays on as an advisor.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) May 7, 2019
With Bishop now out of the playoffs, Tuuka Rask is probably the best goaltender left standing:
It hasn't always been easy for Tuukka Rask, but the Bruins goaltender has always stepped up when it matters most. He's proving that again this post-season, writes @THNJaredClintonhttps://t.co/mYaV4yZGuN— The Hockey News (@TheHockeyNews) May 8, 2019
Speaking of which, the Boston Bruins will be without defenseman Charlie McAvoy for Game 1 against the Carolina Hurricanes:
Boston’s Charlie McAvoy has been suspended for one game for an Illegal Check to the Head on Columbus’ Josh Anderson. https://t.co/17QswFLyfI— NHL Player Safety (@NHLPlayerSafety) May 7, 2019
That game will take place tomorrow, which will kickstart the Conference Finals. But first, the San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche will wrap up the second round tonight:
San Jose already has a Game 7 under their belt this season. Do they have the edge against Colorado on Wednesday? https://t.co/YUHTxTEHVg— The Hockey News (@TheHockeyNews) May 8, 2019
We were all Mrs. Bishop last night:
She's gotta be proud of the performance her son is putting on tonight. Hang in there, Mrs. Bishop. #GoStars pic.twitter.com/AljFJUB0A6— Dallas Stars (@DallasStars) May 8, 2019
