First controversial call of the playoffs, and well this is what happens when you include injury into the decision.
Rule 61 Slashing: when an injury occurs, a major penalty MUST be assessed. Game Misconduct automatic!— Kerry Fraser (@kfraserthecall) April 16, 2015
I also find it funny most of twitter got all over the officials for tossing Subban when the rule doesn't give the official any room to maneuver on the call.

How anyone can consider this a hockey play, it is not like Subban was slashing to retrieve the puck, playoff hockey hey?
Once again though, here is the issue with putting injury into the decision, it gets real screwy.
