For a referee to ignore rule violations because the score is close and time is winding down isn't allowing players to decide the outcome of the game. It's intentionally neglecting to do his job and if that happens often enough, the league that employs him should find someone who's willing to do it properly.
Please,please, PLEASE Habs...BEAT THE FLYERS ATLEAST THREE MORE TIMES!!!!!!!!
I agree with you on the rule book thing.. but i don't think Begin's hit was a penalty at any time.
Also I fixed your post.
