Stars-Marlies: Monday notes

We got a matchup: Roope Hintz scored with 8.5 seconds left in overtime (with Colin Markison on the primary assist) to send Texas to the Calder Cup Final with a 2-1 win over Rockford in Game 6. Jeremy Colliton’s IceHogs swept their first seven playoff games and won two with their backs against the wall in the third round, but it ends there.

It’ll start with three games in four days, Saturday/Sunday in Toronto, to Texas for Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday. Tuesday/Thursday in Toronto if necessary.

Interesting story on Mental Floss about a lost and found World War II bomber.

And RIP, Alan Bean and Bob Fuss.
