Late in the first period, Michael Latta stuck out his leg and tripped Jets center Mark Scheifele. Defenseman Jacob Trouba responded by cross-checking Latta, and then they fought at center ice for nearly a full minute.
Meanwhile, a mini line brawl began behind the play, with Tom Wilson skating towards Mark Stuart and wrestling him down to the ice.
Latta and Trouba got matching majors for fighting. Wilson got a double minor for roughing. Stuart only got two minutes. There was no third man in penalty.
Barry Trotz and Justin Williams were dismayed.
Latta and Wilson stormed off to the locker room.
Andrew Ladd scored on the resulting power play.
So why exactly did Wilson get the extra minor penalty?
