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 actually wrote my above post prior to seeing this quoted post... I'm glad to see it as it backs up my thoughts... except for the part where I believe both calls were legit, and you feel both were "weak"... The Ducks fans have to look at the entire situation and not cry about the end of the game, and ignore the end of Regulation.
