Depends on how you interpret it .. a "level playing field" in this case could either mean both teams get an equal amount of powerplays, or it could mean that the referees aren't favouring one side. If the Canucks took legitimate penalties every shift and played the whole game 5on3, I'd say they're still playing on a level playing field because the disadvantage they have is self-inflicted.
