Video- Discussing The Islanders’ Penalty In OT

from Arthur Staple of Newsday,

Brian Strait took two penalties against Sidney Crosby in Game 3. The first, a hooking call early in the third, was the sort of call a player of Crosby's stature will get -- it wasn't much of a hook, but all eyes are on No. 87.

In overtime, though, Crosby earned the call, getting good position on Strait, driving to the net and forcing Strait to grab Crosby and haul him down. Crosby set up Chris Kunitz for the power-play OT winner barely half a minute later.

"(More frustrated) with myself on that one," Strait said. "I just got a little overaggressive on him. I lost body position along the boards, and you can't lose body position against a guy like that."

Jack Capuano didn't love the fact that the Penguins got the extra call in OT. "There was a hook against (Mark) Streit early, we had a similar play and didn't get a call," he said. "I just hope they're consistent with the calls."

considering how much, hooking, holding, tripping and interference they have let go in these playoffs, this was a terrible call. It cost NYI the game.

In the Chicago-Minny game Suter cross-checked and punched Toews. No call. No question the refs pay extra attention to Crosby.

Strait grabs his shoulder with both hands as Crosby is taking the puck to the net on a scoring chance.  That’s a penalty.  You want to argue about the refs consistency in the game, that’s fine, but that’s a call that’s been made since the 2005 lockout.
