We put a lot of content on this blog each day, and we understand it can be a bit tough to keep track of everything. So at the end of the day we’ll put up a nightly recap of all of that day’s news. Presenting the Pro Hockey Talk Nightcap:

Goal of the Night: Brent Burns

Penguins sign Kris Letang to four year extension – $3.5 million per year seems mostly reasonable for the young offensive defenseman.

Carcillo to have hearing with NHL today- Prelude to the suspension.

Does Letang’s contract mean Gonchar leaves Pens? – My guess is: yes, it does mean that.

Josh Harding likely done for season with hip injury- Harding is one of the league’s most reliable backups.

Will Jere Lehtinen return next season?- It’s been a rough couple years for Lehtinen, so I don’t know.

NHL Playoffs Update: No one wants 8th spot – You mean the right to lose to Washington?

Dallas Stars sign Yale’s Sean Backman – Hey, it’s Hockey Joe’s first post! Hooray!

Coyotes take aim at top seed in West- They have a decent shot at the Pacific (and therefore, most likely, the top spot.)

NHL suspends Dan Carcillo two games – He certainly deserved it.

Thrashers reload with Pavelec in goal – The little-known goalie has had flashes of brilliance this year.

Brian Burke’s cathartic Afghanistan trip – You have to feel for the Leafs’ general manager.

Rocky Wirtz (barely) wins Bertuzzday III: Not as exciting as the Cooke or Ovechkin debates.

Alex Ovechkin tops Crosby in players’ poll: This also includes some other interesting results.

Boston Bruins at Washington Capitals: April 11 Game of the Week: Could be a big one for Boston.

Tonight’s biggest games: Closing the gap

Pekka Rinne, Nashville Predators are sneaky-hot: I think I might have jinxed them though. Sorry guys.

Sergei Gonchar could help Caps, Devils, others in 10-11: I doubt he’ll be back in Pittsburgh, sadly enough.

Vote for Bertuzzday IV: Do it!

Andrew Peters is a source of Devils’ frustration: Great stuff from John of In Lou We Trust.

Again, the Bruins need to go with Tuukka Rask: Seriously, guys.

Ryan Kesler’s hit on Derek Morris earns misconduct – Still not totally sure how I feel about that situation.
