Afternoon Line

“I think they are letting a few things go that maybe were called during the regular season, but I like it this way.  This allows a lot more battles. You can see it out there. Guys are able to fight for the puck.

“As a player, a fan or a coach, all you ask is that it’s called equally both ways, and I think they’ve done a great job of that. It’s fun. It’s not back to what it was in the eighties or seventies, but it’s nice that you can go in and guys are fighting for the puck, or you’re in front of the net, and there are some battles. That’s the way it should be at this time of year.”

-Kirk Maltby of the Detroit Red Wings on the officiating during the SCF.  More on this topic from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail.
