He also had Galchenyuk flying down the middle just a couple of steps behind which could have worked as well

About the hit from behind, I'm a bit on the fence. I think it was a legit hit from behind but I also think there may have been a bit of an act. I missed it on the fly and only saw him drop to the ice. I thought it was a hit to the head the way he dropped. I definitely would have called both though if I was calling the dive. Either way, I doubt you see embellishing too often from this guy. He said after the game that's the first dive he was ever called on.

Overall, what he brings vastly outweighs these minor details.
Agree about the slight embellishment after the hit, though that was definitely a boarding call. AGree about throwing them both in the box. Some say it can't be a penalty and a dive, but I think that play proves that saying wrong. Was a boarding penalty, and then a dive. Give em both a penalty or neither.

Have no problem with Prust trying to get that call though, especially with the way our PP is going. And he made up for it when he ran his face into Enstroms stick!
