Always fun to see the Leafs win after getting jobbed by the stripes.
Rules should also try to minimize people having to make judgement calls on intention. Just call every penalty with less than 2 min remaining in OT as an auto penalty shot. Avoids more shootouts. Refs will stow their whistles anyway on most contact plays but delay of game infractions and bench minors are pretty cut and dry.
I wouldn't be surprised if the refs were unaware of this rule. Whoever was the colour guy kept going on about what a smart move this was for the Rangers, so he obviously didn't know about this rule as well.
Nothing surprises me anymore with nhl refs.
