Peter Laviolette Not Happy With The Way Today’s Game Was Called

from Kevin Kurz of PhiladelphiaFlyers.com,

What he wasn’t happy with were some of the calls that went against his club, including a high-sticking penalty on Simon Gagne, wiping out a Mike Richards goal that would have made it a 2-0 game in the first period.

“Going back and looking at that game, there are just too many penalties that never happened,” said the head coach. “On that play in particular, Simon Gagne didn’t high stick anybody. So, it turns around and goes the other way.

“Scott Hartnell did not, in my opinion, interfere with the goaltender (at 7:44 of the first period). I don’t know if it’s a reputation from the past, but you know we want to play tough, physical…we don’t need to go to the box. But, we’re still going there, and our players aren’t taking penalties.”
