Reading list: Preds can't force Game 7; Bruins have time to heal
We now have one half of the Western Conference Finals set, as the Vancouver Canucks earned a 2-1 victory against the Nashville Predators in Game 6 of their series at Bridgestone Arena on Monday.

The question now is who will the Canucks face? Will the Detroit Red Wings win Tuesday to force a seventh game Thursday, or will the San Jose Sharks advance to the conference finals for a second straight year?

While we wait for answers, here's your daily NHL.com Reading List for a set of quick links to some of the stories you won't want to miss:

Henrik Sedin plays huge role in Canucks' win
The Sedin twins combined for just seven points in the Vancouver Canucks' six-game series victory against the Nashville Predators, but they received a lot of ice time in the third period Monday, when they were asked to protect a 2-1 lead. Dan Rosen spoke with Henrik Sedin after the game.

Legwand shines despite series loss to Canucks
After goalie Pekka Rinne, center David Legwand arguably was Nashville's best player in Round 2. Legwand, who had 4 goals in the six-game series, spoke with John Manasso after Monday's loss.

Bruins get a few extra days for recovery
Thanks to their four-game sweep of the Philadelphia Flyers, the Boston Bruins are fortunate to have a few days off before they begin the Eastern Conference Finals against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Shawn Roarke reports that some Bruins may be healed in time for the start of Round 3.

In latest Cup run, St. Louis now the grizzled vet
Now a 35-year-old with 12 seasons under his belt, Hart Trophy finalist Martin St. Louis -- along with current captain Vincent Lecavalier -- has moved into the role of elder statesman on a Tampa Bay team packed with younger players. Adam Kimelman has the latest on how the Lightning players are looking to St. Louis for guidance.

Seguin ready to seize first playoff opportunity
A star everywhere he has ever played, Boston Bruins rookie Tyler Seguin has spent the past month watching Stanley Cup Playoff games from the press box. But with a few teammates suffering from various injuries, Seguin may get a chance to showcase his abilities in the Eastern Conference Finals. Shawn Roarke reports.

Wings believe they'll find way back to San Jose
The Detroit Red Wings haven't lost sight of the fact the San Jose Sharks can end their season and the series in Game 6 Tuesday at Joe Louis Arena. However, Brian Hedger reports that the Wings are confident they'll be on a plane for California to play again Thursday.

Pronger may require back surgery
Chris Pronger's "year from hell" may not be over just yet. The Philadelphia Flyers' future Hall-of-Fame defenseman, who tried to play through pain throughout the postseason, could have a bulging or herniated disc in his lower back. Adam Kimelman caught up with Pronger during a conference call on Monday.
Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
