Subban the perfect villain; hockey's elite four; McDavid to Croatia? (Puck Headlines)

Here are your Puck Headlines: a glorious collection of news and views collected from the greatest blogosphere in sports and the few, the proud, the mainstream hockey media.

• This Nanaimo Clippers sweater is headed to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Why? Because it was worn by Larry "King" Kwong, the first NHL player of Chinese descent. [Greatest Hockey Legends]

• P.K. Subban is playing the villain, and he's killing it. [Bruins Daily]

• What changed for the Canadiens in Game 3? [Habs Eyes on the Prize]

• What's wrong with the Bruins? Let's start with the inconsistency of the David Krejci line. [Boston]

• We're looking at a potential repeat of last year's Final Four. How are Chicago, Boston, L.A., and Pittsburgh so consistent? [Grantland]

• Medveščak Zagreb has drafted Connor McDavid in the second round of the KHL draft, at  no. 77. One wonders if it was a protest of sorts, since their first seven (!!!) attempts to draft a player were all blocked by weird KHL rules regarding hometown players. (Seems unfair, since there aren't many prospects from Croatia that they can protect). Anyway. McDavid probably won't report, but oh man, if he does... [KHL]

• The Guelph Storm took a 3-1 lead over the North Bay Battalion in the OHL Final after a 10-1 win in Game 4. Holy crap! [Buzzing the Net]

• Should the Ducks make some big lineup changes ahead of Game 3? [Puqmag]

• Goodbye to Dirk Hoag, who's done incredible work at On the Forecheck over the years and will now be stepping back from the blogging game. [On the Forecheck]

• The Jets' organizational plan appears to have been stolen from the underpants gnomes. Don't ask. Just go with it. [Arctic Ice Hockey]

• Nick Cotsonika on hockey in Montreal, which is steeped in tradition and pretty much just awesome. [Yahoo]

• Which Justin is better -- Faulk or Schultz? [Dobber Hockey

• The Blackhawks get a mural in Portage Park. [DNA Info]
