Neil Smith was on the radio yesterday saying he spoke to Kov after the game and he had a bandaide on his knuckle. Neil said in his opinion he was faking. That is why he traded him when he did (the faking and always being the last man back).
Whether it was a slash or not and whether it was called or not are almost secondary ideas here to me. The biggest thing is, slash or no slash, you find a way to play the puck. That is first and foremost. Its hard to draw a call on a marginal play that was not clear cut in Double OT in the playoffs.
Alex giveth and he taketh away.
