Chicago sports radio was even on the Wings side for this. They say since Duncan Keith got 5 games for hit on Sedin, that this was even more deliberate and playoffs shouldn't matter in the number of games.
But playoffs do matter.
Playoff games are considered more important and therefore missing 1 playoff game is like missing 2 or 3 regular season games.
Someone said this before the season...Shanahan or someone.
