I wouldn’t call it a “strange exchange” but a douche bag move by Shaw.  He purposely blocked the entrance to the Wings bench.

Of course, a Hawks player gets where he isnt supposed to be, interferes with 2 players trying to get out of the ice, push and shoves, hurts a player in a very dangerous trip, and of course, its “good non call”

And people wonder why Wings fans use tin foil hats….

Whoever thinks I might be exagerating things, pay attention to the feets of Filpula and Shaw on the video
Shaw deliberatly trips Filpula with his feet

The amount of dirty play Shaw has gotten away with in the playoffs so far is amazing.
Typical NHL non-call and I’m sure we won’t hear from Shannahan on it either.

All I got to say on this one is that Yzerman would have played on one foot.
