Kraken expected to trade captain Mark Giordano ahead of deadline

  Kraken expected to trade captain Mark Giordano ahead of deadline Giordano, 38, was a Norris Trophy winner in 2018-19, and still is producing at a high level for the Kraken. With 23 points in 50 games, he is their highest-scoring defenseman, and with more than 21 minutes of ice time a night, he plays more than everyone except Adam Larsson. Any acquiring team wouldn’t likely be asking him to do as much, which could perhaps improve his performance even further for a short postseason run.The Rangers have been linked to basically every player on the market this year as they try to parlay an incredible season by Igor Shesterkin into true contender status.

Telling a different story. Jonathan Bailey addressed the decision to scale back on the sex scenes during season 2 of Bridgerton — and for the actor, it felt like the right choice considering the circumstances.

“What you lose in sex scenes you gain in a deeper human understanding, which hopefully enriches the world so that the future intimacy scenes won’t be the heavy feature, and [you] won’t have to lean on them as much,” Bailey, 33, told USA Today on Wednesday, March 30. “It’s right to surprise an audience and keep them on their toes a bit.”

Penguins sign defenseman Mark Friedman to two-year extension

  Penguins sign defenseman Mark Friedman to two-year extension Claimed off waivers last season, Friedman has been a nice find for the Penguins, playing regular — if limited — minutes down the lineup. In 20 games this season, the 26-year-old defenseman has one goal and five points while racking up 17 penalty minutes. Although he certainly isn’t an imposing figure, standing just 5-foot-11, Friedman is actually quite physical and willing to drop his gloves on occasion. While that doesn’t make him an incredibly important piece, he does seem to fall into the category of player Penguins executive Brian Burke has always coveted.

After Bridgerton debuted on Netflix in December 2020, the steamy moments between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Basset (Regé Jean-Page) quickly became a major topic of conversation for fans.

During season 2, Anthony Bridgerton’s search for love gets slightly more complicated when he falls in love with Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley) while courting her sister Edwina (Charithra Chandran).

For Bailey, the story required there to be a decrease in graphic moments between the season 2 couple. “It would have been wrong for Kate and Anthony to have got physical any sooner than they did,” the U.K. native pointed out. “And I think the payoff is really earned.”

Kraken recall Victor Rask from AHL

  Kraken recall Victor Rask from AHL While he may still serve as an extra forward to start, this is an opportunity that Rask shouldn’t overlook. The 29-year-old forward has completely fallen off the map when it comes to being an effective NHL forward.Then, Rask was quickly assigned to the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL, throwing some more confusion at the deal. Perhaps this was the plan all along, though, as Rask has now been recalled to the Kraken.

Ahead of the show’s sophomore season, showrunner Chris van Dusen also addressed the different approach that the writers took when it came to those memorable sex scenes.

“It was never about quantity for us,” the creator told reporters last month. “Our approach to intimacy on the show really is the same as season 1. And we use these intimate scenes to tell a story and to push the story forward. We’ve never done a sex scene for the sake of doing a sex scene, and I don’t think we ever will.”

Dusen added: “It all serves a larger purpose and it’s a different story this season. It’s different characters. We’re with Anthony and Kate most of the [second] season and that’s very different from Daphne and Simon. And that’s really part of the draw to me of a project like this, the ability to tell these close-ended love stories of different characters season after season.”

Ashley, 27, for her part, found the emotional intimacy between Kate and Anthony to be much more important. (The duo did consummate their relationship in the last two episodes of the season.)

“It makes sense for these characters because they’re so protective over their families and they’re so truthful to their duties and responsibilities — so for them to break that wouldn’t have made sense for the characters,” the Sex Education star added at the time. “And as Chris has said, they aren’t performative sex scenes or intimate scenes. They have a meaning behind them and I think it’s very earned when the fireworks happen.”

Bridgerton season 2 is available to stream on Netflix.

Canadiens place left wing Jonathan Drouin on LTIR .
If the Vegas Golden Knights’ flurry of moves wasn’t enough to satisfy those yearning for more long-term injured reserve (LTIR) machinations, the Montreal Canadiens have probably helped them out. The Canadiens have placed Jonathan Drouin on LTIR, according to PuckPedia. Drouin has been out since a late March contest against the Boston Bruins, and his season was ended by wrist surgery.
