You left out of the article the Ducks' game 1. Right before the playoffs the league sat down (or had a conference call, really) with all the teams (coaches, GMs), and let them know in no uncertain terms that the "sending of messages" at the end of a playoff game will not be tolerated in any fashion (http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=361998).
So what happens at the end of the Ducks 1st game? In the final minute they send out Parros, Ruutu, and Brookbank to "send a message" - all three get misconduct penalties.
And the league response? Silence....
