For a full explanation, look for Rule 78.6 on page 112 of the NHL Rule Book

Actually a penalty would count unless would have have been assessed to the team scored against.

That shift looked like Eller's trying too hard, rather than rely on his natural ability. Sort of like Nuke Laloosh.

It would seem so, since they set the time back to when the puck went in the net.

Why do you assume they lose the two shootout games? If you look at who scored first in the shootout (equating, if imprecisely, to scoring first in playoff overtime), they would be down 3 games to 2. (Pittsburgh didn't score a goal in that shootout, and Anaheim went first, scoring. But they also had first crack. Given that Chucky didn't score on Habs' first shot, that one goes to Anaheim.)

The elbow followed the crosscheck to the left of Hiller. He should have got four minutes.

There was a great quote from Max in that SportsNet story. His comment on Kessel's breakaway actually conveys some of what the players experience during a game: "“(It was) a behind the back pass that went through maybe two skates, a couple of sticks and ends up right on Kessel’s stick for a breakaway,” marvelled Pacioretty. “I’m right there with Kessel but I don’t even see the puck coming until the last second.” So, he was asked, you didn’t expect it? “No, I don’t think that’s something they practice too often,” he said."

Good idea on the mugs. I'd buy a couple. Or they could offer them as sort of contest bait.

Closer to extortion.
