I was browsing nhl, and I read the headline "Can't miss: Letang lays Big Hit on Tavares"

 

Now, correct me if I am wrong, but isn't that blatant interference? Tavares was just skating after a dump in with Letang was ahead of him. Letang puts on the brakes, and throws his back/ shoulder into Tavares. I don't understand how that isn't a penalty. Let alone being heralded as a great hit...

I saw that hit on the highlights tonight and as much as i despise the Penguins and Letang, that to me is just battling for the puck.

 

Unfortunately this is the one series I predict to be a sweep. Tavares

 

is great, and Nabokov is a solid goalie, but wow did Pittsburgh lay the body on Tavares

 

all night.

I get what you're saying. I guess that I let my bias against the pens get the better of me. haha

All I know is Pens put a whomping on the Islanders. This series will be a sweep like I predicted. Isles will squeak out a game 3/4 win IF they are lucky. I hate Pittsburgh but there just to good

That's a hockey play until it happens to Pittsburgh. I can't stand this how can the rules be different for certain teams like Pitt and Boston. Refs were ridiculous in that game
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What happens more often is people have more of a bias against certain teams and see things differently.  Example, people around here think PIT get better calls from the refs what is actually isn't the case.  I will admit to having only seen about 10 minutes of last night's game when it was already 5-0 and NYI got away with a few blatant penalties, likely because they were down 5-0 and the refs didn't want to make it worse.  Other than that, all I can do is look at the box score and see that PIT had 3 PP's and NYI had 4 I think.  Hard to think there is bias from that.

Love him or hate him, Crosby is the best *offensive* player in the world.

Geez, Crosby already with 2. Looking like sweep time.

Cooke literally did nothing wrong there.... That's what a bad reputation will get you

Islanders making a game of it.  I hope Islanders pull off upset of the century and steal this series!

Fleury is living up to all the hype of being the weak link.  Isles up 4-3.

Gotta admire the way the Islanders are playing. They've pretty much controlled the entire game aside from the first few minutes.
