Ok, call 2 minutes to each player. That'd be fine with me. The overall impact would be the same as not calling it.

But that's just me saying what I'd do. Has no bearing on what actually happened in the game, where I imagine the refs simply didn't see the stick, and you could never expect them to call a dive/embellishment even if they did. It was either miss the play entirely, which they did, or call a 2-min, in reality. They kind of made up for it by giving us 4 for the stick on Zednik anyway. (P.S. Hedican was really classy, he can come play for us anytime).
