You're the referee, you make the call. What penalty would you call in this situation? Of course Gopher fans are going to say that a two-minute penalty is the right call, but you have a defenseless player with his head down, engaged in the play and Gophers forward Kyle Rau comes from all the way across the ice to blast Notre Dame forward Vince Hinostroza. I think it's a senseless play. Hopefully Hinostroza is okay, it looked like he suffered a bit of whiplash on the play.
Bad hit by Kyle Rau - goes high and leads with an elbow - leads to both teams scrappin. 3-1 Notre Dame late in 3rd.
