By keeping it, they actually ensured more of the OT would be a PP, plus there was no risk of a shorty while the play was going since play ends when the Rangers touch the puck.

It's one of the few instances where it DOES actually make sense not to give the puck away on the PP with a delayed penalty.
I agree with you. See my post above.
