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.
There isn't even a mention of the slew foot in the IIHF website report in the suspension. How could they not have looked at that? When they are reviewing the infraction on Gostisbehere, they have to rewind the video to the lead up to the incident to rule on it properly. Very disappointing. I was under the impression that an incident does not need to incur a penalty and the opposing team does not need to launch a complaint for a review and suspension to occur.
There was definitely a few Slovak players with questionable play down the stretch. Oh well, the IIHF doesn't exactly have the best track record on officiating in general.
