Colorado Avalanche: Alex Tanguay's bruised thigh, or whatever his injury is, will keep the talented winger out of Colorado's lineup a little longer. "We're doing a lot of treatments on it. I hope it won't be too long until I can play," Tanguay told the Denver Post.

Toronto Maple Leafs: He might play it cool on the ice, but Joe Nieuwendyk was starting to sweat a little last summer waiting for a free agent contract offer. "I won't lie to you, I was getting nervous," Nieuwendyk told the Toronto Sun. Thankfully for the Maple Leafs, the three-time Stanley Cup winner took the only offer he got and he continues to pay the team back with big results.

Calgary Flames: Calgary again looks overmatched in the second round of the playoffs against Detroit's loaded lineup. But with spectacular goaltending from Miikka Kiprusoff, anything can happen, just as the Red Wings learned last year against Anaheim's Jean-Sebastien Giguere.
