Boy, it's hard to listen when both are yelling at the same time. They should probably separate them next time - do video feeds with a mute button or something.

Anyways, that's a tough play to rule on. Letang put himself in a vulnerable position, Nystrom didn't have time to react, and made the only play he likely had. At game speed, it's easy to see why neither player should be at fault.

Hockey is continually becoming a faster sport - I think the rules need to be tweaked with this change in speed need for safety in consideration.
