Zdeno Chara with an instigator penalty along with additional minutes.
This all took place with less than a second to go in the game tonight.
Rule states an automatic suspension for instigator within the last five minutes of the 3rd period, but NHL can review and make the final decision.

“I think if you do something like that you risk, and it’s a serious risk, of an instigator,” said Ruff. “You come in and start throwing punches, I think [the league] needs to take a hard look. Anything in the last five minutes is stupid to do. I like the fact that we had one guy grabbing [Chara] by the knees, one guy grabbing him around the waist and another guy grabbing him around the neck and the big man went down.”
