While watching the game last night I was upset with the non-call on Getzlaf.
However watching it today with a clear mind and from a few different angles it was the right (non)call.
He went down on his own. The stick barely touched him. It's the NHL. Be strong on your skates...
Getzlaf does hook him, but it's a reaching one-hander. It's a marginal call at best. Kronwall should be stronger on the puck, and likely would've been but it looked like he toe picked and fell down. That's what caused the turnover.
Franzen needs to play to the whistle instead of throwing his hand up and crying about the no call.
The thing that pissed me off the most about that play was the fact Ericsson just stood around and watched Getzlaf go straight to the net and didn't even try to block the lane. Everyone watched it on the replay, I can only imagine Babcock showing that to big E the second he can.
