Ref thought it was slashing....which it sure wasn't. You don't slash with the tip of your blade. I don't care what the ref feels. It's up to the linesmen to decide if calls such as boarding are minors or majors. It wasn't a slash. Therefore, it's a spear, and it's 5 minutes in the box for Kovy. I they want to change the rule in the actual rule book, fine. Don't just change it on the ice in the middle of is game. Bush league.
