Jumped him like he did Boughner he probably would have gotten suspended too at least tossed and if the Sharks would have won the game because of the PP people would have been all over him like a cheap suit. the rules today prevent Low and other enforcers from dispensing frontier justice or whatever you want to call it. The NHL need to modify or better yet get rid of the Instigator rule.
Personally, I wouldn't complain whatsoever. Solving the problem is more important than a powerplay in the regular season. And let's not forget how many times the Blues have already been on the PK all year. When standing up for one's teammates, you just have to say screw it and take whatever comes with it (just like Mayers did). And if people can't understand what his role is, that's their problem. I'll defend Low every time if he's standing up for a teammate. I didn't see anyone rag Mayers for doing what he had to do either.
