Get It Right
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
- Yes, everyone wants to get the correct calls on the ice. But instead of expanding video review that would undoubtedly add 10-15 minutes of standing around during games waiting for officials to get it right (or, as is obvious with the current kicked-in rule, get it right a little bit more of the time) the NHL’s priority should be improving the standard of officiating around the league so the referees actually get it right the first time.

Winnipegâ€™s Slump Comes At The Wrong Time
from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,
The Jets have picked the worst possible time to go into the tank, last night’s 4-2 gift to the New York Rangers the latest example of a team finding different ways to melt down when it matters most.
This swan dive to the regular-season finish line has produced just two wins in 10 games, and only half of them have been without the 20-year-old Scheifele in the lineup....

You Knew The Question Would Come- Why Was Rich Peverley Playing?
from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,
