Good call, I forgot about that article.
If Eaton picks up the puck, sure it's interference.
But Letang got it, so it's not.
From the gif, it's clear Tavares was also looking to engage contact, or else his arms wouldn't have been up. If he were hunting the puck, his stick would be on, or close to, the ice.
