Aside from the NBC broadcast doing their best to try and justify Hossa’s blatant dive in the second period of the Western Conference semifinals against Detroit, the refs and the league obviously need to do a better job at recognizing this sort of thing, especially on this stage.

Mike Babcock’s reaction was also pretty hilarious.
Where’s Raffi Torres when you need him? Kidding…
