I can understand that spear on Kunitz not being called, but that game-deciding OT penalty on Crosby?
That's just a a bad joke.
I guarantee you it wouldn't have been called if it was Penguin doing the "hold" on an Islander.
Sorta trivializes the whole playoffs thing.
I want to rip on that call also, but I think Crosby sold it well and made it real hard to not call. In replay it was just a hand on the shoulder and Crosby fell down to sell it. He's a lot stronger on his skates than that. OTOH, NYI has to kill a penalty once in a while or they can just blame themselves.
