I think Campbell made the right call here.
Also, If he had upheld the "letter of the law" this could have been very ugly. IF the Doan incident happened after the final horn...
From the NHL rule book:
Any Teams whose players become involved in an altercation,
other than during the periods of the game
, shall be fined automatically twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) in addition to any other appropriate penalties that may be imposed upon the participating players by supplementary discipline or otherwise.
Any player who would be deemed to be an instigator pursuant to Rule 56(a) at a time other than during the periods of the game shall be suspended automatically for ten (10) games.
Such determination may be made by the Referee at the time of the incident or subsequently by the Commissioner or his designee based upon such reports and other information as he deems sufficient, including but not limited to television tapes.
(NOTE) In the case of altercations taking place after the period or game the fine under this Rule shall be assessed only in the event that an altercation is commenced after the period or game has terminated.
$25k and 10-games....
