If you missed the first questionable hit from Kadri tonight, watch it here.

He should have received a match penalty for the hit on Backstrom, so I guess it evens out.  However, this is the problem the league has when it comes to calls like this.  Instead of doing their job on the Backstrom hit, they gave him a slap on the wrist, which looks bad.  Then when they go to make up for it by giving him a match penalty on what is a borderline 2 min penalty, they make the situation even worse.  If they would just call the game properly instead of constantly covering up their mistakes, situations like this wouldn’t even exist, much less make the game and the league look like a joke.

Hootinani then Shanahan will come on video and give some convoluted reason on why he won’t be suspended for either hit.
