Agreed. I figured they would give him 2 at most for interference, and even that I thought shouldn't have been after seeing the tape. When they tossed him I nearly lost it.

Any further discipline for an act where he was CLEARLY trying to squeeze by and avoid contact would be ridiculous.

I think Shannahan has his work cut out for him tonight thanks to the other games that happened today, thankfully.
