Jarret Stoll's Hard Forecheck Forces Coyotes Penalty

It was a pretty weak penalty call against Michal Roszival, whistled for high-sticking at the 4:43 mark of the third period. Did he get his stick up on Jarret Stoll? Yes, he did. Was it penalty worthy? I’d argue no.

But Stoll really did make the play on his own. He beat Roszival for a puck in the offensive end, and as the Coyote tried to fight off the attacking King, his stick went up and caught Stoll up high. The play doesn’t happen without the hard forecheck by the Kings.
