I expect it'll take the Edmonton Oilers another week or 10 days to announce Rod Phillips is retiring after 37 seasons as the team's radio voice, but I'll dispatch with that here and now so those interested in the job can get a head-start on preparing their resumes and clips.

Yep, even though the Flames aren't in the NHL's postseason dance, the city of Calgary gets some postseason action at the 'Dome in different forms. On the hockey front, they've got the WHL's Eastern Conference Champion Calgary Hitmen, who opened their series with Tri City on Friday night with an absolute thumping (7-0 Hitmen). Or there's the Calgary Roughnecks of the National Lacrosse League, who have a Saturday afternoon playoff date with the Edmonton Rush.

Now that 48 hours or so have passed since the conclusion of the first round, a few observations and remarks.
• There has been much pleading for cooler heads to prevail in D.C. in the wake of the Washington Capitals’ collapse against the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference’s 1-8 matchup.
On the other hand, it’s possible an attempt to avoid over-reaction may result in under-reaction. Ted Leonsis was chided for his emotional post-series evisceration of the hockey club but the Caps owner may be right to fret, even if he’s giving the wrong reasons to do so.
