Tough no-call and I probably agree with it. Bo Horvat did have the puck so no interference for me.
GLENDALE, ARIZONA – Arizona Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced today that the Coyotes have acquired defenseman Philip Samuelsson from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for forward Rob Klinkhammer and a conditional fifth round draft choice in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.
The 23-year-old Samuelsson has registered 0-4-4 and 20 penalty minutes (PIM) in 22 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) this season. The 6-foot-2, 194-pound native of Leksand, Sweden has appeared in five career NHL games with the Penguins. Samuelsson was originally drafted by Pittsburgh in the second round (61st overall) in the 2009 Entry Draft.
In 19 games with the Coyotes this season, Klinkhammer collected 3-0-3 and four PIM.
Robert Bortuzzo suspended two games for interference.

No penalty on the play, thoughts?
from Ron Cook of the Pitsburgh Post-Gazette,
It seems so wrong to worry about what the Penguins are going to do without Pascal Dupuis.
That’s just not important. All that matters is Dupuis’ long-term health as he battles a serious, recurring problem with blood clots in his lungs. He has to do everything he can to live to be a very old man for his wife and their kids.
“I’ve got to be healthy for them,” Dupuis said Wednesday at what likely was this city’s most somber sports news conference since the Penguins announced beloved coach Badger Bob Johnson had died from brain cancer at 60 in November 1991.
Sadly, the Penguins do this sort of thing too often. Just last month, they announced defenseman Olli Maatta, who isn’t old enough to buy a beer in this state, needed surgery to remove what turned out to be a cancerous tumor from his thyroid. In February, they announced defenseman Kris Letang, then 26, had a stroke. Going back to January 1993, they announced superstar center Mario Lemieux had Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
But the Dupuis news conference was much different. There was a lot of optimism that Maatta, Letang and Lemieux would be able to return to the team. All did, quickly. There was no such optimism with Dupuis, mostly because this is the second time in 11 months he has had a potentially life-threatening blood clot.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis has been diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung and will be out of the lineup for at least six months while undergoing treatment with blood thinners.
The clot was identified during testing Monday, after Dupuis had complained of discomfort in his chest.
“Pascal had a blood clot in his leg that traveled to his lung,” said Dr. Dharmesh Vyas, the Penguins’ team physician. “In medical terms, that is a deep vein thrombosis resulting in a pulmonary embolism. This is the second such incident that we know of for Pascal. The treatment is at least six months of blood thinners, during which time he will not be able to play hockey. Other than that, his condition is stable.”
