NOT blaming the refs, but jeez couldn't buy a power play last night

I saw a few plays where guys got hooked or hauled down and no call. Giroux got mugged and nothing. They really let the guys play last night.

I will say the only PP we did get probably should've been matching roughing minors for both.

They let a LOT go last night.

I saw both sides get away with stuff but thought the Flyers would have benefited more from the officials calling a tighter game. The roughing penalty you mention came on the heels of the officials missing a flying elbow on Hartnell that caused the altercation. Thorburn got the penalty because he retaliated instead of dropping the gloves.

I especially didn't like the non call on Mark Stuart's forearm shiver to Sean Couturier in the neutral zone.

this sure does sound like blaming the refs. conversely, i saw the flyers get away with a LOT of stuff last night that very easily could have been called and wasn't. i have no complaints about the refs last night.

I mentioned in my post that conversely the Flyers got away with the Hartnell roughing.

Not blaming the refs. Its just odd that a team right behind the Flyers in penalties taken would only get whistled once for a penalty. It was frustrating in the 3rd period to see the Flyers flying around and getting mugged. Don't read into it too much.
