NHL Week in Review (May 4-10)

The NHL playoffs continue to produce stories of players getting past everything in their way to get to the end goal. The Stanley Cup is the ultimate prize in hockey as it means more to players than an Olympic Gold Medal or a World championship. That trophy is the goal of everyone that has ever strapped on a pair of skates and only a select few ever get to hold it over their heads and put their names on it forever. That can make players go to extreme lengths to get there and it has given the NHL a reputation as one of the toughest leagues in the world.
