Kukla's Korner Hockey

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."
