However, MacLean was incensed that the Ducks’ Ryan Getzlaf wasn’t penalized when he tripped Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson in the closing minutes and that referee Dan ORourke explained he wasn’t making the call because Karlsson was a diver.
“The referee informed us that (Karlsson) was a diver,” MacLean said. “We were a little bit disappointed.
“Erik Karlsson leads the league in points by a defenceman, he’s an elite skater in the league, and, to this point in time, I can never remember him taking a dive.
