How did he get away with it? He got 5 and a game.
Get away in the sense of the media and fans.
It seems no one wants to hold him accountable for his actions.
Crosby was brought up because your views are obviously very bias. You stick up for Crosby all the time, why cant he do the same for Ovechkin? Realistically, someone that hits a lot is not much worse than someone who dives a lot.
This. Has. Nothing. To. Do. With. Crosby.
And I defend Crosby because I do believe that whining and diving is less serious then potentially ending players careers on a laundry list of borderline hits.
But again, let's focus on Ovechkin. I do not want to talk about Crosby.
