Samsonov Upset With Illegal Stick Call

from the Boston Globe,
It was uncharacteristic when Samsonov barked at the Anaheim bench midway through the third period yesterday after he was called for an illegal stick. ''I think it's a pretty gutless call with 10 minutes to go in the game," said Samsonov, who scored a goal with the stick at 15:35 of the first period. ''He calls that with it being five on four. He got what he deserved; they got another loss, so I'm pretty happy about that. ''It's the first time in eight years I've gotten called. You don't see that getting called very much. It's stupid really. I'm sure half the team on the other side has illegal sticks. ''I'm glad we gave them a loss in overtime. If he just wants to single me out, that's fine, but I think he got what he deserved."
