Sheary had his back to him; McDonagh gave him a stiff shove from behind into the boards, sending the Penguins forward’s face bouncing off the glass.
Down went Sheary.
In times like this, a team looks to its most feared enforcer to send a message and keep the peace.
An enforcer like … Sidney. Crosby.

As you can see, Rangers fans weren’t happy about this. McDonagh was given a boarding major. Crosby was just given two minutes for roughing, despite doing something that some would argue would have earned a lesser player an instigator penalty but c’mon this is the NHL and well all know that referees would never no way ever give preferential treatment to a star player in a key divisional game.
Alright, that all said: Did Sheary embellish or what?
