Mikael Granlund set a record with the fastest 5 points in SM-Liiga history in HIFK's series clinching win over Lukko last night. Granlund scored 2 goals and 3 assists in, oh, roughly 12 minutes in a 7-1 win. I believe Granlund has 8 goals and 13 points in 11 playoff games so far- I think.

Sean Lorenz, a junior at Notre Dame, was voted The CCHA's best Defensive Defenseman. Lorenz was drafted in the 4th round, 115th overall, in 2008.
Of course, Lorenz and his Fighting Irish squad is in St. Paul this weekend for the Frozen Four; and in the spirit of shameless self-promotion, FRB writer Nate Wells is covering the tournament for SBN Minnesota.
Please do check out his coverage all weekend, starting today. You can also follow him on Twitter at @GopherState.
