There were plenty of reminders of racial injustice and NHL players’ protest of it when Stanley Cup playoff games resumed after a two-day break. A video montage about equality and Black Lives Matter played before Tampa Bay-Boston, while coaches and players in the Toronto and Edmonton bubbles discussed their roles in the situation. Canucks coach Travis Green says he’s proud of his players and those around the league for making a statement about not playing games for two days. Flyers coach Alain Vigneault took an opportunity to explain his statements in previous days about not paying attention to anything outside hockey.
