You mean give themselves a few slaps? Almost every player does it.

It showed emotion after the win, which there is nothing wrong with.

The fans loved it, it wasn't denigrating towards the other team. The only argument I have seen is that "This is minor league stuff".

Guess what? NHL players are allowed to show emotion, especially after a hard fought win in the top league in the world. This isn't the 1950's anymore. You see examples of post-game celebrations in almost all sports in the world. But no, hockey has to go the boring route.

It's a dinosaur ideology.
