EXACTLY! How is this hit not getting the same amount of attention? Stoll's 'hit' (looked more like aggressive board-pinning to me) was from behind and I can totally understand the review and possible discipline. But what needs to be kept in mind is that the follow-through of the shoulder pushing face towards boards was the worst part. It's not like Stoll went full-bore and destroyed him by throwing his whole body and weight behind the hit.

Meanwhile Demers leaves his feet, targets the head and the league doesn't care?

And **** SJ's color commentator with his homer BS. I'm so sick of him! 'Joe Pavelski has just become a legend' Wow, I guess the Sharks are desperate for playoff success stories when a first-round, game one OT winner is the stuff of legends. It was a huge goal, but let's not blow it completely out of proportion. What happens when someone scores an OT-GWG in the conference or SC finals? I'm guessing that 'So and so has just become a hockey GOD!!!'. Sensationalist BS!!!

Glad to see the Kings make a game of it and hopefully game 1 is only the first game of an excellent series.
