Take your homer glasses off first and focus on Getzlaf leg, not his shoulders(yes, he was going for a shoulder hit as well), when he saw he was not gonna make the hit he wanted, he still tried to stop the Slovak by extending his leg, and he did.
And please, save us the nonsense about bad reffing and how NHL refs rule, every NHL match thread you open on this site has people whining about how refs hurt their team and how NHL reffing stinks. It takes balls for a ref to call this penalty on canada in a 3-3 game, but obvious faul is obvious and this was a correct call.
The refs did a great job here.
Ya that smart. Lets just ignore the better, closer angle and just focus at what the regular angle appears to shows
i looked at the video very closely and imo it doesn't look knee on knee, looks like getzlaf made contant with Mikus' thigh... dont know it that matters though
