Kerry Fraser's take on the game (TSN.ca):


Wes McCauley is a patient referee with very sound judgment. He is not one to overreact. I can guarantee that there was way too much being said from the penalty box, the players' bench and on the ice by the Penguin players that resulted in the unsportsmanlike conduct and misconduct penalty that was assessed to Kunitz at the end of the period. There was absolutely no need for Kunitz to go out of his way to slide the puck in the direction of referee McCauley who was standing at the Zamboni entrance waiting to exit the ice. When players engage in excessive whining and complaining, as it appeared the Penguins did in the first period, the referee will stop the 'drip' and shut off the tap by imposing a penalty. Teams can develop a reputation for whining no differently than players do for diving and embellishment.


The Penguins have earned the undesirable reputation with several of the referees for having too much to say. As a team, they need to turn off the tap on their own as they move toward the playoffs. The referees' patience has already worn thin.

How does that work?  Is the salary just retained, or is his cap hit split between the two teams as well?



His cap hit is split too. That was the only way Rags were able to fit Yandle under the cap. I tried to find out if Coytoes retained half of only the cap hit or the salary as well. It seems they retained both. I don't even know if it's possible to retain only the cap hit but not actual salary.

Hey Couture....f*** you



Couture's just being himself... but what the heck is going on in front of then net? Is Raffi Torres celebrating because Abdelkader's butt is touching him?

Ericsson fought Benn earlier in the game. I thought that thing was supposed to stop cheap shots and make rats and other rodents scared. Still Benn hit Z right in front of Ericsson. How is that possible? Didn't Ericsson enforce Benn enough or is Benn just too much of a rat to understand "the code"?
