Controversial Call as Tkachuk Demonstrates Diving
It is unexpected to see such behavior from Tkachuk, who is known for being a fierce competitor in the league. The minimal contact from the barely noticeable tap on his skate should not have provoked such a dramatic reaction. Frankly, it's somewhat embarrassing.
Even though Holl was caught off guard and reaching during the play, the contact with Tkachuk's skate was barely detectable. If the officials had been set on penalizing Holl, they could have opted to call both players – Holl for tripping and Tkachuk for embellishment. However, it's important to remember that NHL officials aren't particularly famous for their unbiased judgments.
