Absolutely agree with everything. I argued the very same thing in the thread I started. It is very unfortunate that Pavelski got hurt. I am not absolving the Knights giving up 4 goals on the major, HOWEVER there is a HUGE difference between a 2 minute minor and a 5 minute major. If the Knights give up a PP Goal on a 2 minute minor they regroup and limit the damage.

WIN IT FOR JUMBO!!!!!
