VIDEO: Colin McDonald gets called for 'diving'
Colin McDonald of the New York Islanders gets called for diving early in the third period of Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh.
Following their Game 3 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday afternoon, New York Islanders fans were pretty livid at the penalty call on Brian Strait that led to Chris Kunitz's game-winning goal. Specifically, there were more "diving" accusations thrown at Penguins captain Sidney Crosby (the player who drew the penalty). Several fans even showed up to Tuesday's game with "no diving" signs.
That's why it probably didn't thrill them that the first diving call of the series went to one of their players in Game 4 on Tuesday night when Colin McDonald was sent off for it early in the third period.
