Uh, can we get a blade measurement?

• Jonathan Toews kinda, sorta calls out the NHL before the Shaw suspension: "In a situation like that with Weber, more than anything you should make an example of it, regardless of whether he's a star player," said Toews, who missed 22 games due to a concussion. "They have been trying to make an example of things like that so they don't happen again and all of a sudden you let one slide like that. Everyone must feel like they're back to square one. So it is frustrating." [Chicago Tribune]

• Henrik Zetterberg believes the non-suspension of Shea Weber set the bar for the rest of the postseason chaos: "I think the league had a pretty good opportunity to set the bar, and I guess they did." [WXYZ]

• Hal Gill will miss Game 4 of the Red Wings/Predators series. [Predators Insider]

• Daniel Alfredsson has a concussion setback for the Ottawa Senators; the outlook is bleak for the rest of the series. [NYDN]

• Boston College recruit Austin Cangelosi scores crazy 'chip and flip' overtime winner in USHL [Buzzing The Net]

• The Phoenix Coyotes might seek some retribution for Andrew Shaw running Mike Smith, unless a three-game suspension is enough. "If I was to do it to (Chicago goalie Corey Crawford I'm sure there would be the exact same feelings towards me. There's no doubt that it's not something we appreciate and we're too happy about." [QMI]

• Jaromir Jagr on Sidney Crosby: "There is a lot of talk now about Sidney Crosby and what he's been doing on the ice. Some give it a lot of thought, others less. And I am a guy who does not care at all, I take no notice. He does harm only to himself. But every man is different, perhaps this helps him get into the game and play better." [Broad Street Hockey]

• Awesome news: "Jack Jablonski — the paralyzed high school hockey player will be leaving Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute. Jablonski is scheduled to leave Wednesday." [CBS Minny]

• Brad Richardson > appendixes. [LA Kings Insider]

• Strong ratings continue for NBCSN in the postseason. [Puck The Media]

• The head coach of a team that plays just outside of Miami is complaining about the New Jersey Devils' ice conditions. [NJ.com]

• By the way, we retract all the jokes: The New Jersey Devils actually sold out a first-round playoff game against a team from Florida. [Fire & Ice]

• Brian Boyle on how he's handling being this year's off-the-radar playoff star. [NY Post]

• On Henrik Lundqvist: "Lundqvist is the idea of the goalie distilled to only the most necessary parts. Today, that also happens to include antique-American restaurants in Tribeca and co-guitaring with volatile tennis legends. Mostly, though, it's about presence." [The Classical, via Wayne from Tuskegee]

• "Valeri Zelepukin, a Stanley Cup winner with the New Jersey Devils in 1995, will be among the players from 22 teams competing in the Dubai International Ice Hockey Tournament at Al Nasr Leisureland in Dubai from today until Saturday."

• Don't mess with Teemu Hartikainen. [Copper & Blue]

• If the Chicago Blackhawks were on the Titanic, who lives? [Subtle Like Seabrook]

• And, in connection with that: What if Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith were left floating on that big door in the frigid ocean? [Brent Seabrook's Hair]

• Coyotes ownership update: "At a Tuesday budget meeting, City Manager Ed Beasley said former San Jose Sharks executive Greg Jamison has verbally said he'd 'feel comfortable' adjusting Glendale's first-year payment to $17 million." [Westside Insider]

• Sci-Fi villain or hockey player? [ESPN]

• Finally, watch the Los Angeles Kings Kiss-Cam for a sweet moment for a certain Los Angeles Laker.
