Things to know from Sunday's games
By Paul Grant
Flyers-Penguins series: The Flyers were decidedly better -- the 5-1-in-Game-6 kind of better. That's what you need to know. They will keep playing, the Penguins go home. Also worth knowing: Claude Giroux earned first-round Conn Smythe honors.
Bruins-Capitals: Tim Thomas is back. But so is Alex Ovechkin. Man, don't you love Game 7's?
Kings-Canucks: Goaltender battles can be entertaining too, especially those that pit two guys against each other who have been working a cage match since they were wee lads. But after the Kings clobbered the Canucks in OT, count on Jonathan Quick to be the favorite as the second-round Conn Smythe winner.
