Video- Ryan Johansen With A Two Minutes For Unsportsmanlike Conduct Penaly

Post-game stories had no mention of the incident, so we are left to guess.  Could have been some words were exchanged or a rules violation.

It was obviously something said to the official.  I’m guessing Johansen was sour from being tossed from the faceoff and said something nasty to the linesman.

As to how bad it actually was, who knows.  It could have been pretty nasty and over the line, or it could have been fairly benign and the linesman was think-skinned, OR it even could have been a linesman seeing a chance to actually call a penalty where he otherwise has no authority to do so.  It’s always hard to tell with these officials, and the fact that they are never publicly accountable for anything postgame always makes it all the more mysterious and lets wild theories run rampant.

If I had to guess though, Johansen said something pretty out of line after lining up behind the linesman.

That’s not the first time that a linesman has penalized Johansen after tossing him from the face-off.

Do tell?

Do you know which linesman it was?  Is there maybe a history between the two?

Preds / Jets. Linesman #s are different.

Had to have said something, the way the linesman turned around like, “What the *#$%@& did you just say?”
