C’mon Man! Phaneuf Didn’t Deserve That!
I can’t believe that Dion Phaneuf got five minutes and a game misconduct for a hit last night. Sabres forward Zack Kassian turned his back and Phaneuf nudged him in an attempt to get the puck. If you wanted to give two minutes for boarding, okay, I can accept that. But even then, Phaneuf didn’t leave his feet. A two minute cross checking penalty would have been the correct call I think. I concede that the Leafs’ PK is horrible, but this poor call impacted the outcome of what was otherwise an excellent hockey game.
What do you think? Didn’t see the hit? Check it out:
…and that is the last word.
