In the 1980s and 1990s NHL that call would never have been made...after all, it was the third period, and the refs NEVER called penalties in the third period in those days.

That's why the NHL was what I used to call a "bush league" in those days...refs actually swallowed their whistles in the third period...the NHL was a joke then, and after a couple years of that ********, they finally realized they needed to grow a pair and start calling the third period like the first two.
