FILE - In this March 17, 2017, file photo, Pittsburgh Penguins' Nick Bonino (13) celebrates his goal in the second period of an NHL hockey game against the New Jersey Devils, in Pittsburgh. With one head-snap motion, Nick Bonino drew the ire of the hockey world and put a spotlight on the sport’s dirty little secret of embellishment. Bonino sold a high-sticking penalty against Washington’s T.J. Oshie when replays showed the Pittsburgh forward was never hit in the face late in Game 4, and it worked. The Penguins got a power play and held on to win as the Capitals couldn’t get a 6-on-5 by pulling their goaltender. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar, File)
