I don't even think he deserved a penalty on the play so definitely not surprised. Like I said in the other thread maybe a 2 for boarding but that's it. He never left his feet, came in arms low and just finished a check on Spacek who turned last second because of the way he shot the puck deep. It was a hard hit no doubt, but I think the refs were a little intimidated by the home crowd on the play. At least that's how I saw it.
Didn't feel there should have been. A friend told me there was so I came on to check, sure enough there isn't a suspension. I'm not happy or anything, would have been fun to see them side with us for once, but hey he doesn't deserve to be suspended in a game 7 let alone even a regular season game. It was from behind, it wasn't intent to injure though.
Didn't deserve one, I was actually ok with how this thing was handled as a whole. I would also be fine with a 2 only, although I don't think the 5 was unfair (I think it was borderline between them, and hell the way the refs were it's a wonder they got one of the 2 options right. Wouldn't have been surprised if they called a 4 min for high stick causing blood, even though no stick was involved).
And as some others have say... I think we're better with them having Lucic in the line-up than out. A suspension to Lucic might've given some other players extra ice time to show themselves, or let Seguin in their line-up and have him have the game of his career, or whatever.
Now Lucic's there, he'll likely be angry because of being out last game, and in the end the most likely thing to result out of that the way he's been playing is more PP time for us.
