Vegas had a 3-2 lead heading into the third period on Reilly Smith's power-play goal with 28.2 seconds left in the second period. I was personally very low on him this season since he gave up over three goals per game, but has looked elite in the playoffs.

The sister of the Queen of the Netherlands has been found hanged in her apartment in an apparent suicide. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Queen and her family.

Zorreguieta was a psychologist who worked on social policies at the office of Argentina's president, Mauricio Macri. I wish them all the strength necessary to carry this awful loss together. The government said state visits to Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania will go ahead as scheduled, but King Willem-Alexander will not be joined by Maxima.

Argentina's Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie expressed his condolences to Queen Maxima on behalf of Argentina. She had also worked for the social development ministry in Buenos Aires province and at a United Nations office in Panama. Although no additional details surrounding her tragic death were provided, it has been reported that she was known to suffer from depression.

She was a bridesmaid for her sister's 2002 marriage to then-Dutch Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, and goddaughter for the couple's youngest daughter, 11-year-old Princess Ariane.

Her death comes 10 months after the death of Maxima's father Jorge Zorreguieta, who died at the age of 89 from cancer.
