Referee Kevin Pollock explains a non-call on Rangers defenseman Keith Yandle after Tampa forward Ondrej Palat is taken out in front of the Ranger net.
Pollock: Hey, I got him cutting right into him. He’s playing D, and your guy cuts right into him and that’s where the collision comes and they go down. I don’t have him tripping his legs.
Stamkos: He grabs his stick though
Pollock: You know what, okay, so look — look where I am.
Stamkos: “Yeah, I know”
Pollock: “So I can’t see him grab the stick from here, right? I can only see the contact. I think it’s good contact.”
