The series against the Penguins is now tied at 3 games a piece. Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semi-final series is Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
From one touching tribute to the next, this story is trending on BuzzFeed. A Minnesota man was at a yard sale with his wife. It was there he spotted a crib. Gerald Kumpala, a woodworker, asked if he could buy it, but the owner was hesitant. Turns out, the crib belonged to the grieving mother's son who was stillborn last July. After their conversation with the mother, Gerald and his wife bought the crib and took it home with them. Then, just one week later, they brought the crib back to the mother, which they had transformed into a memorial bench.
