Aw, nuts! That stick works is gonna cost you! This week, KHL referee awards, goaltender interference, NHL refs on broadcasts, Mark Scheifele's suspension, fines for the Bruins' Cassidy and Ritchie, spearing vs. slashing, and more.

Bruins/Isles get some extended time in the penalty box, Rantanen writes a letter, quick faceoffs, high cross-checks, and Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele delivers an illegal hit that could end his postseason. Plus, are fines and suspensions really a deterrent?

Plenty of criticism of playoff officiating this week - including one case where the refs convicted the wrong guy, along withretired refs speaking out. Todd and Josh also talk fines for stickwork, the rare clipping infraction, Kadri's appeal, goaltender interference, and revisiting Player Safety.
