I don't know why people are saying the league is being inconsistent in this type of hit. They are in fact being really consistent here. 1. Larsson put himself in a vulnerable position just as Cole was coming across, which we've seen before is something they do take into consideration. 2. Cole hit him in the "free" zone. Did no one watch the Stanley Cup playoffs last year? That type of hit behind the net was let go each and every time. It was present a lot in the Vancouver - Chicago series especially.

Larsson also acted the hell out of it. I didn't realize NJ has so many divers on their team.
