Video- Paul Maurice Tossed From The Game

from Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun,

The game had a little bit of everything. The Jets outshot the Lightning 13-8 in the first period but found themselves down 3-0. They were down 3-1 in the second when Lightning defenceman Anton Stralman hit off-balance centre Bryan Little in the neutral zone, contacting his head and sending him to the dressing room.

No penalty was called on the play, which incensed the Jets and led first to a Maurice bench minor and eventually a game misconduct issued by referee Francois St. Laurent.

Maurice was asked what he thought about a picture circulating of St. Laurent laughing a he threw the Jets coach out of the game.

“I would say that would then have been consistent with their overall demeanor regarding the incident,” Maurice said.

“I was upset because you work with these guys every day and you care about them and their wives and their families. Little is getting neck x-rayed and I seem to be more concerned about the result of that hit than anyone else.”

Yeah, I can see why Maurice is pissed. Bench minor was crap, I understand the ref doesn’t want to take any shit but those were 2 bad hits and 2 guys hurt.

Two dirty hits does not a bench minor make. It should have been a double minor against TB.

The refs are setting a very bad precedent over the past couple weeks.
