Um....it was.
Washington tripping - 2 min 4:44, T. Fleischmann
Montreal diving - 2 min 4:44, B. Gionta

See, I don't think this is a conspiracy, I think it's more of a situation where after the first call on Lapierre, the refs are basically saying to him, don't crumble down after minimal contact as if you were shot from the rafters. It's embarrassing to them and it's embarrassing to the league. After this "warning" that such diving will be called, was it any surprise that when Lapierre did basically the exact thing again, he got penalized for it again?
