I don't care if Van Ryn saw you coming and turned into the boards, you have to let up there. Terrible penalty to take from Kostopoulos, if I was in charge of league discipline I'd suspend him, and hopefully Dandeneault is in the lineup in his spot next game. You just can't do that.
Kosto could be suspended, but Tucker isn't. NHL justice I guess Imagine if Kosto promised he'd do it! We did have a much less justified major in a game at Toronto last season (on Komi?) but killed it off if I recall.
That was a stupid hit by Kostopoulos. I don't blame him too much however because it's hard doing those split seconds decision sometimes when you're speeding towards the corner. Van Ryn didn't help himself either, but I'm pretty sure Kostopoulos is very mad at himself right now.
