I have no problem with Gostisbehere getting a game, but am shocked that Matis got nothing.
Not that it will change anything for Team USA since they are playing without him regardless. But I am really shocked that Matis didn't get anything, with how crazy the IIHF is about eveything I figured he would at least do a game especially since he got nothing in game for it. Especially since he then went on later to get a 2 and 10 for checking to the head. That guy was pretty out of control the whole game, guess you really do have to feign injury if even for a moment.
