Somewhere in Kingston, blood started dripping from Doug Gilmours face for no reason.

And I wonder what will happen after the scrum at the end there. I saw about 3 different opportunities to take an NYI player to the box for roughing, but by Reilly's reaction it woudn't surprise me to see Toronto a man down to start the 3rd.

Exactly, the spirit of the penalty shot rule is that the guy is home free and tripped and slides into the goal. The referee then gives him the shot that was taken away from him for the infraction. I was under the impression if he managed to get some kind of shot off then or it wasn't completely home free then the referee would just give a two minute penalty.

The way the rules around penalty shots are qualified is that a play that would normally result in a 2 minute penalty has to take away a clear scoring chance - so, getting a weak shot off or not being hauled down, etc., wouldn't necessarily mean it's not a penalty shot. That play, on the other hand, wasn't even a penalty, and it definitely did not take away the scoring chance.

Exactly, that's what makes it even worse. Generally, if there's any doubt whatsoever, it's a minor penalty. The fact it wasn't even close to being a minor penalty really makes you wonder how the call could have been botched so badly.

And, Wayne Gretzky is having a great giggle about it.

The crosscheck on Kadri should've been coincidental minors for crosscheck to Tavares and a dive for Kadri.

Actually, having watched the replay, yeah, he swan dived after the crosscheck - which is a shame, because he'd really stopped his embellishing habit this season compared to last. Should have been coincidental minors as you mention.

That call on Kadri was 100% a call made out of spite, that ref should be demoted to a lower league.

Time to take out frustrations on the puck and Greiss' net.

Yeah bad call but chirping the ref is probably not going go help.

Nylander's gotta call his own number on that one if the other guy is Hyman.

I hope someone got a gif of Komarov whispering Swede nothings to Nylander on the way to the bench.

I really don't know if Brown/Hyman are long term top 9 guys.
