Kassian, Spitfires off to Memorial Cup final

The Sabres' first-round pick from last year is headed to the Memorial Cup final thanks to the likely first overall pick from this year.

Windsor's Taylor Hall showed once again Monday why Edmonton should select him with the top pick in next month's draft, scoring twice and adding an assist to lift the Spitfires to a 6-2 victory over the Calgary Hitmen. The win puts Windsor in Sunday's championship game.

Kassian, the 13th overall pick by Buffalo in last year's draft, had one assist.
