News from Around the League

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

With the NHL playoffs really starting to kick into high gear, there has been no shortage of great games, plays, goals, and of course, controversial plays. Here is just a quick look at an array of articles that look into some of what we've seen so far in the playoffs, and what it will or has already impacted.


- USA Today takes a look into the decline of high profile scorers.

- National Post looks into how the NHL may be promoting the ferocious types of plays that we've seen recently from the likes of Brent Seabrook and Milan Lucic.

- Forbes has a look into how the NHL failed to really deter illegal head shots with the Seabrook suspension.

- On the topic of the Seabrook hit, what else occurred on that play that is concerning about the nature of the game?

- Someone made a T-Shirt out of that? How much more disrespectful can people be?

- The refereeing in Game 3 of Tampa vs Montreal certainly turned some heads.

- Speaking about that game, should Steven Stamkos have returned at all after taking a knee to the head?

- Come on, Matt Cooke. Have you returned to your old villainous ways? The Hockey News says yes.

- And, Matt Cooke returns to being Matt Cooke after being a phony Matt Cooke.
