Yeah I actually think the whole Giroux hit thing played a role in this. Like others said, it was a clean hit, but you gotta stand up for your star player. You think the Pens would have sat by while Crosby was writhing around on the ice after being hit? Probably not. Clean or not, you gotta go after someone if your star player/captain gets laid out.
