How many times does it take for you to realize an illegal check to the head doesn’t have a major penalty as an option.1 game suspension for McAvoy.
Is that an admission on the part of the NHL that their refs screwed up the on-ice call?
Joe Thornton got suspended 1 game in first round for the same exact penalty. He didn’t get a major he got a minor for an illegal check to the head and got suspended game 4 against Vegas.
The refs didn’t screw anything up.
