Fraser - don't you think the refs may have been looking the other way given the embellishment penalty abortion call on Brown from the prior game? Referees are old school. They like to handle things on the ice, and I guarantee you that if Brown had flopped all over the ice like a beached whale last night, the LAST penalty they would be calling on Brown was for diving.

There IS a difference. Drawing a referee's attention to a penalty that has occurred is a different form of embellishment than the Ryan Kesler version of diving without provocation. You may not like either, but clearly the refs are fine with Brown drawing attention to an infraction or Brown would get called for diving more often.
