The fact is that there is a huge grey area in the NHL regarding what's a penalty and what's not when it comes to some of the rough stuff.
Did anyone else notice McGuire's reaction to the punch when NBC went to the wide angle? McGuire is considered a "Ranger lover" by all outside of NY, presumbaly because of his friendship with Torts.
"Kreider's a star", "McDonough's the best defensemen in the game", it does get tiresome even as a Ranger fan.
I thought that was all baseless sour grapes until I saw McGuire throw his arm up to signify a penalty and start yapping at the ref. He seriously reacted like you or I would in the Blue seats while enjopying a cold one
One of the most amazing things I have ever seen or heard from a "national" broadcaster.
Did anyone else see it? If you have a feed or tape of the game watch it.
