I don't what the refs expect. Are the Habs not allowed to fall at all anymore? It's friggin hockey, people fall, that's why they wear padding!!!
I cannot understand the first diving penalty to Lapierre. That's the one that gets me. The guy was hit from behind into the boards. He fell to the ice. It's possible one could fake that fall. But how can you call that. People get hit from behind and go down like that all the time. It's not like he took a flying leap. 3 diving penalties in one game seems very excessive. I mean the calls, not taking the penalties. Especially when 2 of them were called when we are up 3-0. Makes no sense.
