*Kevin Hayes spoke about his injury and why he looked a little... crappy this season. [Inquirer]

*We talked about Bruce Cassidy getting a hefty fine for talking about the refs in the Isles-Bruins series, but it seems to have worked. Maybe more coaches should complain? [NESN]

*But again, here we are talking about the referees. As we have been all playoffs, and not for good reason. It’s not a good look. [AP]

*So can the refs be pushed to make calls? Should the really just call the rulebook as written? It’s all very annoying. [Sportsnet]

*Speaking of complaining about the refs, Mark Scheifele is complaining about his suspension. [TSN]

*We got the Norris nominees yesterday. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Jack Eichel is almost surely going to be gone from Buffalo, which sucks for them. [Die By The Blade]

*If the Avalanche are going to get back into things tonight they’re going to have to figure out Mark Stone. [The Athletic]

*Like those Knights, the Kraken are probably going to be very popular out of the gate. [The Hockey News]

*We’re on to the third overall pick in our community draft. [BSH]

*And finally, P.K. Subban seems to be coming in to his final form. He’ll be very good at this. [The Hockey News]
