No further suspension for Geno, which is obviously the right call.

To me, if Malkin is any Canadian or Ovechikin, the narrative and commentary is totally different, and there is no penalty call. Oshie is lining Geno up for a hit; Geno sees it coming and gives it instead of taking it.

What is Malkin supposed to do? Passively let Oshie hit him?


Exactly how I see it. It’s total horseshit and was only aided by the jeers in front of the home crowd. As per usual NHL officiating is generally speaking still a joke.

Only league on earth where a guy can be coming in full speed to lay you out, you lean into him to take the hit, he goes down and you are ejected. Haha.

I think you guys are missing a point here-this was a makeup call for the high stick to Oshie(from Maata) to start the game. The refs knew they missed at the least a 4-minute penalty and most likely a 5 minute so they kept that in their pocket until they made the makeup call.
That is how the NHL operates.

Funny that the Cap fans are calling the Pens/Malkin cheap shot artists because Oshie has a history of going too far in that department.

All that said, when you are only scoring a goal a game losing streaks happen.

It wasn't for lack of chances last night.

BTW, even Oshie said he believed Malkin thought he was going to get hit, and braced for it.
