Yeah, that's true, but also the way they were taking so long talking about deciding what they were going to do with Zajac, it kind of reminded me of the "how many people does it take to change a lightbulb" joke.  I would have just put him in the other box when I figured out it wasn't working out and then repaired it during intermission.  They had something like 3 or 4 guys to do it, so they could have gotten it done in 20 minutes.   That's  what they wound up doing anyway.

So how funny is it that they can't get into the penalty box because it has to be repaired?

Rangers are dominating the second period, and Chris Kreider is the best player on the ice. Pretty crazy.

That's not a penalty that was just called on Carl Hagelin....
