After a thrilling and unexpected weekend sweep, we're back at it with another edition of Links, News and Notes.

  • Over the weekend, we got to hear from the staff at The Athletic as they outlined a player from each team who "has to step up" down the stretch.
  • Luke Fox put together a fun little piece for the NHL's "All Healthy Scratch Team" - two full lines, two defence pairs, and two goaltenders who have been forced to sit and watch teammates play in games they had planned to dress for.
  • This morning, Wayne Scanlan posted about how the Senators can and should be looking at the Edmonton Oilers when modelling their rebuild.
  • Jeff Marek wrote something up about how coaches are "ruining" overtime.
  • Looks like a new era of NHL families is officially here, as Josh Doan - son of Shane Doan - will be making his debut for the same organization where Doan made his name for 1,500 games
  • Travis Yost took a look at Canada's four playoff teams, asking a question per team on what they need to have to give themselves the best chance at hoisting Lord Stanley this spring.
