This week in anguish:

- We talk through one of the most remarkable weeks for the hockey world in living memory. 

- We draft a letter to Francesco Aquilini, asking him to commit to supporting the initiatives of the Hockey Diversity Alliance.

- We educate ourselves about Black hockey history and racism's deep roots in the game through the documentaries Soul on Ice and Too Colourful for the League.

- We revisit the story of BC hockey pioneer Larry Kwong. 

- We still eke out a bit of time to lick our Game 1 and 3 wounds, and crow victoriously about Game 2. 

- How Did We Not Know about Börje Salming's indigenous heritage, and about the Ottawa Senators' historical thoughtlessness?
