Vegas' Marchessault rips the NHL after devastatiing Game 7 loss

We witnessed maybe the biggest comeback in modern Stanley Cup Playoff history as the San Jose Sharks rallied from a 3-goal deficit in the third period and a 3-1 series to win the series in 7 games. The game was quite controversial for a penalty that changed the entire outcome of the game.

After losing Game 7 in overtime, Vegas' Jonathan Marchessault met with the media for a post-game interview. After leading the game 3-0 halfway through the third, Vegas' Cody Eakin was given a 5-minute penalty for cross-checking after he cross-checked Joe Pavelski resulting in him losing his balance and hitting his head against the ice.


Marchessault clearly was in disbelief, but he has a good point. Why don't referees have video replay when they give out a major penalty? That penalty changed the entire outcome for the Vegas Golden Knights.
Well, if this doesn't lead to video review for major penaluties - nothing will, Elliotte Friedman stated on Twitter after the San Jose Sharks scored the fourth goal.
Even Ray Ferraro commented on the situation.
If everybody looked at that play last night in live time only (as the refs had to do it) it would be virtually impossible to get it right all the time. I was 70 feet or so from contact (same side as low official) and it took me 3 looks on my monitor to see what happened.
Should there be video review for all major penalties?
