So Rockford won’t be perfect: The IceHogs lost their first playoff game under Jeremy Colliton, falling 4-2 tonight to the Texas Stars outside Austin. Remi Elie’s power-play goal broke a tie in the second period. Lehigh-Toronto starts Saturday, and then they both play Sunday.
World Championships semifinals Saturday. The U.S. plays at 9:15 a.m. on the NHL Network.
And RIP, Stanley Falkow.
