Morning Skate: Cassidy with the Camera Guys

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I'm reading, while I'm starting to become a big believer in the Boston Celtics. Boy that was one heck of a win in Game 2 over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

*Thanks to Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy, who stopped to talk to the Camera Guys and yours truly for a few minutes on Wednesday. It looks like NBC Sports Boston camera guy Glenn Gleason is going to get his chance to bring chain-smoking NHL defensemen back in vogue in the NHL.

*Hockey fans are going to love to hear Alex Ovechkin's hilarious pregame meal traditions now that the Capitals have found their winning ways in the postseason.

*Ron Hextall is not trying to win any popularity contests as the GM of the Philadelphia Flyers. How about trying to win a "find a decent goalie" contest? Is he trying to win one of those because that's a contest he should be trying to win?

*With the Golden Knights in the Western Conference Finals, the city of Las Vegas is finding itself happily in the hockey bubble right now.

*Tom Wilson has a problem with somebody throwing a high hit at him, and then not having to any price with supplemental discipline. Nobody else seems to care. That's the price to be paid when deciding to be Tom Wilson.

*Chris Kunitz chasing history and a fifth Stanley Cup to add to his resume as a fourth-line grinder for the Tampa Bay Lightning. You can't buy that kind of experience.

*For something completely different: Here's some great news as it looks like the wheels are turning on a "Zombieland 2 " movie with all of the original cast involved. I loved the first one, so this is great.
