He was called for a traveling violation despite getting pushed, then was not awarded two points when Chris "Birdman" Andersen clearly was guilty of goaltending on one of his shots. Upset, and after Miami received a third straight favorable call, Taj Gibson decided it was the perfect time to absolutely flip out.
