I get that the refs are trying to police a game that could get out of hand but 10 minutes? Really?
I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. Maybe the NHL is trying to balance the scales of Matty Niskanen cross checking Gallagher in the face for a one game suspension? This league, man.
Oh! Also, if you don’t remember, Sammy Blais got 4 minutes for getting his face mashed in by Roussel last series in some of the funniest refereeing I’ve ever seen.
The worst part for Blais is the fact that he didn’t do anything except use his face as a punching bag AND got the same amount of minutes as Antoine.
I remember when the hockey world went crazy the summer the Canucks signed Schaller, Beagle and Roussel but each of those players serve a serious role for a team looking to go on a run for Lords Stanley. At the very least, this is all very entertaining.
