McGrattan said he was discussing the lack of a penalty call on Komisarek with teammate Chris Neil yesterday morning. “That guy (Komisarek) throws cheap hits all the time. If that’s me or (Neil), making that hit, it’s five (minutes) and a game (misconduct), maybe a match penalty. No doubt about it,” said McGrattan. “I hate how that works. If you’re a tough guy, you don’t get the calls. I’m used to it now.” Miller pulled McGrattan’s sweater over his head and wrestled him to the ice and McGrattan should probably be thankful.
