The Athletic’s Dom Luszczyszyn with a column here summing up the feelings on officiating a lot of us have this time of year: “It’s disappointing how predictable all of this is. Every playoffs, Referee Discourse takes center stage as games ultimately do get decided by referee inaction. I feel annoying and whiny even doing so, but I’m just so very tired of watching the game I love devolve into yet another referee show where the rules of the game just don’t matter.” [The Athletic ($)]

If you were holding out hopes of Ovi leaving the Capitals to join your favorite team, I have some bad news for you. Here’s Alex Ovechkin talking about re-signing with the Caps: “I’m confident, we still have time. Obviously, I want to finish my career here, I’m pretty sure we will do something.” [Sportsnet]
