Handball or fair play by Michael Parkhurst? You be the judge

It looked like the Portland Timbers were going to extend their lead in the 2015 MLS Cup in the second half, but somehow the Columbus Crew kept it out of the goal by the slimmest of margins.

Replays show that maybe (just maybe) Michael Parkhurst handled the ball as part of that effort to keep it out of the next. Should it have been a penalty and red card for the Crew SC defender, or was the no-call the right call?
