Video- A Frustrated Claude Julien

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

“The frustrating thing is that we get 17 minutes into the penalty box when we should have been on the power play. It’s as simple as that,” said Julien. “It’s frustrating because tonight – as everybody saw – there’s a lot of embellishment. This is embarrassing for our game: the embellishing. Right now they’ve got over 100 power plays [this season] and it’s pretty obvious why.

The NHL should have put embellishment as a priority rather that that craptastic face off hand pass violation junk or the little love taps to the hands as hooking they’ve been calling around the league.

I guess it’s kind of hard to start calling it now when the league was basically endorsing it by letting their face of the game get away with it for so many years.

Penalty minutes per game on the season

Montreal 15.4

Boston 15.6

Thanks for playing Claude. 
For sure the refs missed the initial call on Emelin but Seguin didn’t miss a shift and it’s not like Boston didn’t get away with anything.  Also, Emelin got five minutes for serving as Chara’s punching bag so the 17 minutes really is more like 12.  I’m assuming Chara got the misconduct because he left the blue line to come pound on Emelin behind the red line.  That was his choice.

I could have sworn there was a memo from the NHL several weeks ago that they were cracking down on embellishment/diving.  I’m fairly positive as I pointedly laughed at the ridiculousness of the statement having watched well over 2 dozen games at that point and not having seen a single unsportsmanlike-diving call.
