  • From the other side of the line - 10 takeaways from Game 3 from a Red Wings writer perspective. [Wings Nation]
  • Objection, your honor! Die hard and devote, informed fans already knew Jon Cooper was a lawyer before getting into coaching hockey. Eh, it looks like I've been overruled by the Associated Press and USA Today. [USA Today (Corrected Link)]

  • More NHL video review? This having to do with off sides... (autoplay video warning) [Sportsnet]
  • ...And a case against the concept being proposed because of the hypocritical/contradictive element of it: For a league that craves more scoring, this would slow it down. [Puck Daddy]
