New York Rangers forward Derek Dorsett was in the middle of a lot of action in Game 6 on Sunday, particularly when it came to a couple controversial physical moments.*
The moment that angered the Washington Capitals came when the 26-year-old drew a cross-checking penalty on Mike Green about midway through the third period. While Green’s infraction was pretty easy to identify, the Capitals believed that Dorsett should have gone to the penalty box as well.
On the bright side, the Rangers’ squalid power play didn’t score on the ensuing man advantage, so one could argue that it wasn’t a major moment. On the other hand, Washington advocates would likely argue that the Capitals lost out on crucial time to attempt to tie the game.
