Did Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson steal Game 6 with a 45-save performance, Mike Sullivan?
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in Brussels for the 28-nation NATO summit. Terrorism, which was already going to be a major theme of the meeting, is likely to get more attention following Monday's attack at a concert arena in Manchester, England. Trudeau is likely to be pressed to boost Canada's defence spending, which is currently just over one per cent of its GDP, half of NATO's target.
A day before the Ottawa Senators staved off elimination in the Eastern Conference final, Chris Kelly got up in front of the group and offered his bit of veteran wisdom. Kelly hadn't played in more than a month, but wanted to stress to his teammates to live in the moment of their storybook playoff run. It's that leadership dynamic which led Senators coach Guy Boucher to add the 36-year-old to the Ottawa lineup for Game 7 against the Penguins. One of two Stanley Cup winners on Ottawa's roster, Kelly — who won a Cup in 2011 with Boston — said his speech was casual, and nothing like the inspiration zeal one might see in the movies.
