Being neutral and not a fan of either team - the correct call was made by the official IMHO.
That's fairly blatant misrepresentation of the factual events. No contact with the knee, no impact on the knee - no clipping. It is a clean check, no penalty, forget the 5+20. No wonder some NHL referees decide to put their whistles away at the end of the important games. This one ended ugly, it was followed by a number of wrong calls on both sides, for me the game was spoiled.
