i dont see the problem here. Pl3 ask Johannson if he wanted to fight and got a "no" as a response during the faceoff, then chases him down the ice,catches him, drops the gloves and prepares to take his frustration out on the rookie,all but failing due to Johannson falling(looked like he dropped to the ice and rolled on his back like a scolded dog) to the ice, all with less then 5 mins left in the game.Did the league make the correct call? Yeah, the fact no actual punches were thrown doesnt make it not a fight,PL3 was in the act/process of fighting(mauling) Johannson.In any other case when a player drops his gloves and takes a player down ,its 9 outta 10 times called a fight in today's hockey, regardless of punchcount,so this shouldnt be a shocker. Im sure PL3 knew the deal before the puck even dropped,the only problem i see here is IF Maclean didnt give him the ok to do what he did,but then why even put him on the ice,we'll know if PL3 is benched when he gets back after the 1 gamer.
