Is NBC serious right now with their intermission coverage? "Wings getting all the breaks," "Wings getting away with a lot," did they all have collective strokes? How about "Ducks on track to win multiple Oscars?"
No question Howard threw a huge dive in there to get a call though...which I don't like at all. I have more tolerance for goalies, but I still don't like it.
I thought so at first too, but there was one particular angle that NBC showed that made me cringe. It showed the skate dragging across the shoulder and then connecting with Howie's mask, knocking it sideways. My instinct would be to flop away from that too.
I pretty much agree with everyone here-clear penalty, time served. I'm not a Perry fan, but what he did wasn't suspension or fine worthy. Although I would love to see him have to eat a bag of flaming dog poo, I will settle for watching the Wings (hopefully) beat the snot out of the Ducks.
