Yes, suspension incoming, just like when crobsy sucked punched a guy, should have been a fine like Taylor hall. No?

Okay.

How bout that crackdown on cross checking, eh NHL?

The call against Malkin was double minor for high sticking.

Malkin has been dirty for a long time.

Give him an extra (playoff) game for instigating against Zetterberg in the
final mins and getting away with it for no good reason anyone ever explained.

Always been sneaky dirty. The slash was dangerously close to his wrist, but that cross check was intended for the mouth.

Either give him 10 games, or let the Nashville guy have a freebie on him during the draft lottery. I would love to see the latter.

Yes. That lack of a one game suspension gave the Cup to Crybaby. The Red Wings lost game 3 3-2, and Malkin assisted on all three goals. Thanks Gary. cool mad

Uh…

Lidstrom, Datsyuk and Hossa all being maybe 75%, at best, had more to do with it than Malkin playing but ok.

True on that about injuries, but the Red Wings were leading 2-1 in game 3. At that time shortly after that Pittsburgh had too many men on the ice for almost 30 seconds. Instead of calling a penalty the linesmen were telling the extra man to get off the ice. Of course right after that they call a penalty on the Red Wings, and of course Pittsburgh ties the game. Again add the fact Malkin assisted on all 3 of their goals, the Red Wings go up 3-0 in the series. If the Red Wings don’t finish them off in game 4, then game 5 for sure. Remember game 5? The Red Wings won 5-0 with the camera’s showing Bettman with a frown on his face.  grrr
