Watch: Isles Argue to No Avail as Martin Gets Weird Slashing Penalty



It's been a wild game one between the Islanders and the Panthers in Florida. Even the penalty calls have been a little wild. Matt Martin was handed a rather weak slashing call during the third period when he casually lifted the stick of defenseman Brian Campbell in the neutral zone.

Islanders captain John Tavares argued the call to no avail, and the Islanders killed the penalty and still lead 5-4 late in the third.

Have you ever seen a player called for slashing while lifting a stick? Pierre McGuire hasn't....
