Linesman Jonny Murray doesn’t let anything stand in the way of making the right call — even when he’s dumped into the players’ bench.

Murray got caught up in a Marc Staal check on the Pens’ Kris Letang that saw him end up on the wrong side of the boards.

He was saved by a great job by the Pens’ players to catch the linesman. ¬†Showing his true impartiality, Murray – ever the professional – immediately whistled the club for offside. ¬† No favoritism here…
