1. ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling, in talking about Rays pitcher Chris Archer, used a Telestrator to circle Archer's hair and said, "Everything but this right here, big league.'' I'd put a photo of Schilling on screen, circle his mouth and say, "Everything but this right here, big league.''

2. Not sure why Major League Baseball insists on opening series up north. Perfect example: why did the Houston Astros open up in New York against the Yankees instead of the other way around? Sure enough, that season opener was postponed because of bad weather.

3. Prediction: the Lightning's Jonathan Drouin will score a goal in the opening round the playoffs and it will be a big goal at that.
