Greg Wyshynski of ESPN and Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston each had the identical report Thursday morning that Malkin wouldn’t have a listening to for the match penalty, which occurred 3:27 into the third interval of the Caps 2-1 victory.
In line with each, the league seemingly believed Malkin was bracing himself for contact with the oncoming Oshie after the Penguins ahead handed the puck to his left. There isn’t a query Malkin’s elbow made contact with Oshie’s head, however there appeared loads of grey space if there was any intent or not.
Oshie — who earlier within the sport acquired stitches close to his eye after being clipped by a excessive stick — went down in a heap after the Malkin hit. He finally went to the dressing room, efficiently handed concussion protocol and returned to the sport. Oshie then capped his adventurous night time by scoring the game-winning purpose with 1:14 remaining in regulation.
