- The nominees for the Ted Lindsay Award were announced. (Up until April 29th of this year, the award was known as the Lester B. Pearson Award.) The nominees are - wait for it - exactly the same three that are nominated for the Hart Trophy: Siddo!, Sedin, and A-hOle™. In case you didn't already know, the Lindsay Award is the MVP award that is given by the NHLPA. The winner will be announced on June 23, 2010 at the NHL Awards ceremony.
- Jordan Staal is a warrior. It has not even been a full week since Gronk had foot surgery, yet incredibly, he is a game time decision for tonight's game. :-O
- Rupp is out, but it is not because of a hockey injury. Head Coach Dan Bylsma would not elaborate further.
- Despite practicing this morning, Guerin is out again with an undisclosed injury.
