Silver Nuggets: Murray starts coaching hunt; Lehner maturing

Today is a historic day in the Silver Nuggets, as for the first time ever, there will be a link to Fox News.

Anyway, the Tampa Bay Lightning continued their unlikely run by defeating the Boston Bruins 5-4 last night to set up a game seven tomorrow night. If they win tomorrow, would they be the unlikeliest conference winners since the 2006 Edmonton Oilers?

On a more important note, we are now only 29 days away from the NHL draft!

Here are today's links:
