The ref standing right next to him decides it's legit; Coburn looked like he considered going after Cooke but controlled himself. Then Timonen has the slightest of hooks late in the game and it's a penalty. Those late, weak penalties after letting them play all game sure do happen a lot against Pittsburgh.
Coburn also got away with that hit on Dupuis, so I don't think the refs were biased against us. Simmonds took a dumb penalty, and Timonen did hook whoever it was. So I don't see anything wrong with the calls made there, we deserved to go down two men.
