College kids make a splash in playoffs

While watching the Buffalo-N.Y. Rangers game two, which the Rangers should have won, I couldn't help but think of the influence college hockey had on the game.

The best players on the ice were Thomas Vanek, Ryan Miller and Chris Drury. Respectively, they played at Minnesota, Michigan State and Boston University. Drew Stafford, who set up the game winning goal for Buffalo, played at North Dakota.

It's interesting to see how more college players are stepping up to be big time players in the NHL and in the playoffs.
