• Katie Baker on Hawks/Kings Game 5, one of the greatest overtimes ever played. [Grantland]

• Nick Cotsonika on Hawks/Kings Game 5. Did we mention it was one of the greatest overtimes ever? The whole hockey world is having a cigarette and sighing with satisfaction. [Yahoo]

• Mike Smith on goalie interference: "They really solidified that in football when they brought in the rule of roughing the passer, and it's a huge penalty for your team when that happens. I personally don't think the penalty is severe enough for a goaltender interference call." [AZ Central]

Dale Weise will miss Habs/Rangers Game 6 with an undisclosed injury. Probably lower-body or something. Probably not head-related. Nah. [Sporting News]

• Barry Trotz talks defence, and the misconceptions thereof. "When they say 'defensive coach,' I know this and I'm going to tell the players, when you have the puck, I want you to make good decisions and I want you to score some goals and I want you to be hard on people and the puck. And if you don't have it, I want to get it back again so we can reattack." [NBC Washington]

• Alex Burrows stars in the new Visa ad. Apparently he's been injured so many times that he now has to cover his own medical expenses. [PITB]
