"By you talking to me about it, to the players about it, it's giving them a platform, it's giving them air-time", Trotz said. "It was something that I think for us was something we found out by the time we got to the rink and something we'll have to address going forward".
The other postponed games were Game 4s on Friday: Boston against Tampa, and Dallas against Colorado. "As you digest it, I think what happened last night is a great statement for the athletes".

"We're all for equality and social justice", he said. "I guess I'm a hockey nerd, and that's what I'm doing right now".
