What Did You Miss Tuesday?
--Nick Henry was one of many Pats to walk up the stairs and out the door at the Brandt Centre Tuesday as the team held exit meetings and cleaned out their lockers. For many like Sam Steel and Josh Mahura, it was the last climb up those stairs they would take as Pats. Both are expected to be in the American Hockey League with Anaheim's affiliate in San Diego. When asked if he was going to remain the coach, John Paddock was very tight-lipped saying he didn't want to talk about it, but he did say he was not pursuing any opportunities. Many in the hockey world at the Memorial Cup believe Paddock is ready to move upstairs allowing Dave Struch to take over.
--Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final goes Wednesday in Vegas. Much of the talk the day after the Knights 6-4 win over the Capitals was whether or not a hit delivered by Washington's Tom Wilson on Vegas's Jonathan Marchessault was dirty and whether or not he should be suspended. Wilson will play in Game 2.
--Riders head coach and general manager Chris Jones wasn't sugarcoating anything Tuesday as the green-and-white got back to work after taking Monday off following a 23 point loss in Edmonton. Jones said “Once we watched the film, it was the same thing: Penalties and turnovers were the difference in the game". Jones had players doing burpees when someone committed a pre-snap penalty.
-- Philadelphia 76ers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo has denied using Twitter accounts that have posted tweets responding to and criticizing 76ers players and executives around the NBA, that surfaced in a report by The Ringer on Tuesday. Of the five, only four of them were active sending tweets and replying to other postings on Twitter. In a statement to The Ringer provided by the 76ers, Colangelo admitted to using the dormant account, while disavowing any knowledge of the other four.
