That's the thing that I find funny, all the Ducks fans on their board are saying the Flyers were given the game. What they fail to realize is that they had a shot on the powerplay to basically win the game before the refs "gave" the game to the Flyers. They didn't capitalize, the Flyers did.
Also I think Getzlaf's antics earlier in the game led to his extra two minutes. He was beaking off to the refs for the other penalty he got called for. When he did it again, the refs weren't going to take it anymore
I appreciate your counterpoint. The call against the Flyers at the end of the game wasn't on the highlights so I didn't see it to gauge how penalty-worth it was.
