Rule clarification - tripping

I have this play happen against me at least once a game in my inline league, and it NEVER gets called. So I just want to see if I'm right in complaining about this.

I'm carrying the puck up the left side cutting towards the slot for a shot (right handed shot), and a guy trailing me slightly from my right slides to either block my shot or a desperate attempt at poke checking the puck away from me. Every time, the guy misses the puck and I get the shot off...and at the same time I'm taking down by what basically turns into a soccer-style slide tackle. Tripping, no?

This exact play happened last night in the final minute of a tied game, and lead to an odd man rush the other way...on which one of our guys was forced to take a (deserved) penalty to prevent them from scoring. So it went from a (I think) should be power play for us, to putting us on the penalty kill within 5 seconds.
