Isles and Penguins injury notes; Kronwall suspended; Thoughts on the Blues and more …

***

Kronwall is out for tonight’s Game 7. Just when you thought the NHL wouldn’t have the cojones – they bring it. I’m shocked, to be honest. If Kucherov was injured, then sure, the NHL has a history of punishing for the injury. But no injury and still a punishment that fits the crime? Well done.

Disclosure: I have Kronwall in one keeper league in which I am competing for the playoff trophy. And I have Kucherov in the other keeper in which I am probably a favorite for the playoff trophy. So read into that how you will. I’ll stick the footage of this hit down at the bottom.

I’m 7-0 in my first round predictions. The last time I was 8-0, pigs were flying. Yes, I don’t think it’s ever happened. I picked Tampa Bay in the last series, so we shall see if I can get the monkey off my back.

*

If the Red Wings win tonight, they will have won three of four games in Tampa.

*

With Mats Zuccarello out with a concussion, it looks like Martin St. Louis is back on the Rick Nash and Derick Brassard line. St. Louis has just one assist so far, but then again the Rangers didn’t score a lot of goals during their five game embarrassment of the Penguins.
