The ref made a mistake. There should NOT have been a delayed penalty. It should have been instantaneous. It is possible that he didn't "see" the net was empty I suppose, but in the end they got it right.
I'd like to add how cool it was to have Datsyuk neutralized so much of the night by Gudas. That fellow is really learning the NHL game. He reminds me very much of a former Red Wing from '97 Cup team: Vladimir Konstantinov. Now THAT guy was amazing. Something like +60 and he NEVER cared who he was playing against. The opponents were ALL targets to him. Every team in the league hated to play against him.
I think Gudas may be developing into the same kind of player.
