While we may no have been the biggest fans of Scott Walker, it looks like he learned of some difficult news during the Bruins series: his wife, Julie, was diagnosed with cervical cancer. The good news is she is expected to make a full recovery.
Walker held back from discussing the hard news at all during the series, even after the scoring the game winning goal in Game 7.

Luckily, he has a strong group of teammates that will be there to help him through this trying time. Our best wishes go out to the Walker family for a full recovery for Julie.
