I did see it, and from what I recall thinking the call was bad, but understanding how the refs could have miscalled it. Sure, "from every replay angle it was clear"... but the refs don't call penalties from the replays! Like Van says, if the player looks badly hurt, you have to bite on it as a referee; I just wish they'd call the diving penalty more often. "OK Peter, you got away with it last time, in fact, you drew a major.. look, you just made a marginal flop, 2 minutes for diving, how you like that?" would cure him fairly quickly, I think. But the stars get away with more than the non-stars do, and compared to Forsberg, Comrie's Pluto.
