Plus even with a makeup call. That's still a 3 minute major. Meaning if the Pens could have scored 5 times in 3 minutes if they were able to. Big difference. Also it forces the teams to play 4 on 4 and then 5 on 4 when it should have been 5 on 5 for those 5+ minutes. The whole 2nd half of the 2nd period and the 3rd was just a bs penalty feast and it killed any flow that the game had.

Personally I think that any 5 minute major should have to be reviewed by the booth to see that if something that looked like a 5 minute major truly deserved one.

I remember a few games ago when Antropov got crosschecked in the head and I think nothing was called on that either. That is something that warranted a 5 minute major and instead it wasn't called at all. It's really complete nonsense with these refs and it makes it so hard to take this league seriously.
