I think this is a key point as well; sometimes hits that aren't necessarily dirty in and of themselves become dirty plays when the player is already tied up with another. Can you imagine what it would be like if you could pin a dude and have another guy run and blast him?
I think that, the icing call, and the follow through all play into this. AND the Kings reaction. AND...the fact that it was Staubitz and not oh, Malkin.
