The only people who deserve any hate for this are the refs. As it's a bench penalty the linesmen could have called it (right?). That means absolutely no official was looking at the puck or, they saw it and decided not to call it. Clowe isn't some classless pos, he's a jokester playing in a beer league.

Emotions are running high, and that's understandable. It could factor into us not winning the division. But so could some 20 other plays in that game. This one is just easier to blame because it stands out.
The amazing thing is that Jim Fox saw it immediately from 150 feet away and commented on it, yet 4 officials from much closer did not see it.

And you are wrong, Clowe is some classless POS - as are most (95% or higher?) HF shark fans today.

When will the Kings get away with something that seemingly affects the outcome of a game, when video evidence clearly shows they were in the wrong (and no clock gate comments either as the NHL operates the clock, and the Kings still would have had a 50/50 or better chance at the 2nd point in OT or SO anyway)
