All of these clips were within the last 5 minutes of the game or overtime. Not 1 of these were called penalties. I didn’t have time to get all of the “Hugs” from the rest of the game.
Both Crosby and Malkin had the puck, both refs watching. The Crosby “Hug” was within 10 feet of the referee, you can see the refs feet. Horribly officiated game on national TV, makes the NHL look stupid while NBC tries to showcase the NHL’s #1 star for the second week in a row.
BTW: The NCAA is having it’s best TV ratings in 18 years.
