We can't be explaining every call to the players and/or coaches. Especially in minor and adult rec hockey, where you only have so much ice time available for the game.
In my games, if it is a running-time game with no floods, I'll gladly have a friendly chat with the coaches after the game. If it's a full game, I'll have a quick word as we're preparing to start the next period after the flood. (I do it after the flood so the coaches have the intermission to cool off.) ...And when I do talk to the coaches, they should keep in mind that it will be an explanation (IE: one-way conversation from me to them), not a discussion.
