Had SOB done the same thing and gotten a penalty we would all be infuriated, and not just because we "always get called". It's a close one.

With that said, Johnson is nothing but a damn goon. St Louis trained him well. I'm glad the piece of trash got traded to a tanking team. He wasted no time gooning it up as soon as the buzzer sounded to end the game, did he? Typical
I agree. It's borderline, but still acceptable in my eyes, even if Johnson didn't actually make contact with the puck. It was close enough. Pre-lockout, that would be considered a great play.
