Edit: The refs were clearly determined not to let yesterdays game turn nasty, and I can see the value in that. To give out a 5 minute major for that hit wasn't necessary though, and to give a 10-minute misconduct to our "tough" guy for who knows what, but leaving MacIntyre in the game, might not have been the smartest idea if things had gotten more heated towards the end of the game.
Agreed, I also don't see how that hit warranted 5 mins + game misconduct for Rinaldo. To me, it's not even clear it's fully hitting from behind, since at least from the video it seems it wasn't the cookie-cutter seeing numbers from behind situation.
