Even Henrique, who was waived by the Ducks this season only to be brought back to Anaheim when no other NHL team claimed him, could well use this as a springboard for the rest of his career.

Defense, defense, defense. Through seven games, the Jets ranked 14th of 16 teams in the playoffs in expected goals against per 60 minutes (2.75) at 5-on-5. Some of that is no doubt the result of four games against McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Most of that is due to lackluster team defense in front of goalie Connor Hellebuyck, which starts at the blue line.Columbus Blue Jackets

In Game 1 between the Clippers and Jazz, we’ll get a chance to see how each team deals with the other’s primary creators. Utah is built around a multitude of dangerous ball-handlers so it will be interesting to see where Doc Rivers decides to put Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Leonard’s incredible first-round performance was largely overshadowed by Luka Doncic and his team’s struggles but the Jazz will need to make him work for his points. Royce O’Neal was his primary defender in their regular-season matchups but Bojan Bogdanovic and Joe Ingles may also need to take some possessions and try to hold up.

Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell didn't feel well at halftime of Tuesday's Game 1 against the visiting LA Clippers. He was a bit under the weather, feeling nauseated and a little light-headed. And he really felt sick about his performance in the first half.Philadelphia 76ers face coverings

The other main Game 2 adjustment by the Sixers was switching Tobias Harris onto Young when Atlanta involved him in double drag actions.

Obviously an offense centered around Hill would feature his rushing ability, since he ran for 457 yards last year while starting four games at QB and appearing in most others in read-option packages. An offense centered around Winston would certainly feature his downfield arm strength. And a big priority for both would include cutting down on turnovers.

While the Magic job would come with more patience and job stability since this is a young team, there is no Damian Lillard or Jayson Tatum in Orlando. There may not even be a Jaylen Brown or CJ McCollum. The Magic have a few promising youngsters in Jonathan Isaac, Markelle Fultz, Cole Anthony, Wendell Carter Jr., Gary Harris, RJ Hampton and Mohamed Bamba, but none is a sure thing, and many of them are still rehabbing from injury.

I like the Bruins off a loss, and I also like that it’s a home game but *not* a Game 7 game — home teams in Game 7 often come out tight and don’t get the benefit of the venue (think back to St. Louis beating Boston in the Finals a few years back, or the Toronto choke job from last week). I’m expecting Boston to control this game and carry a significant shot advantage, and if Varly isn’t Superman again, it should be a 60-minute affair.

Dalton: Mike Williams is my top sleeper on this team, with Donald Parham a deep one. Williams is an injury risk with his willingness to go up for catches, but he’s also got big upside if things break right. The top-10 pick scored 10 touchdowns as a sophomore, and the downfield receiver has a QB in Herbert who was among the league leaders in deep passes during his impressive rookie campaign. Williams has the pedigree, is still just 26 years old and is playing for a new contract.New Orleans Saints Face masks

A.J. Brown, receiver: He's averaged 95 targets, 61 catches and 1,063 yards in his first two NFL seasons after being a second-round pick out of Ole Miss. Brown has already acknowledged his numbers will likely take a hit, probably precluding a Pro Bowl return for a few seasons. At least he appears to be in the proper headspace, more focused on victories than receptions. (Though if Tennessee struggles early, you wonder whether that diva syndrome that seems to afflict most wideouts will flare up for Brown ... or Jones.)Tampa Bay Buccaneers Face masks

Gilmore’s 2021 cap hit is $16.265M. The Patriots are easily absorbing that so there’s no need for them to address the deal to create space. But Gilmore -- while preferring to stay with the Patriots -- has a $7M base that pays him way less than the other top corners in the league. His deal is obsolete. But he’s coming off an injury and he’s soon to be 31. There really isn’t any urgency at all for the Patriots to address his contract. If they don’t, what -- if any -- steps will Gilmore take to try and get it addressed?

"My mindset this whole offseason's been to get ready, get myself ready, and that's been my mindset since I got here," Love said. "Whether Aaron was here or not here, that's going to be my mindset regardless, because I have to get myself ready to play and be able to go out there and take charge of the team and be able to perform at a high level and do my best so everybody else can do their jobs as well and just be able to perform at a high level."
