I think most all the others can take a lesson watching his work on that PK. Harassing PP forwards can result in make up calls.
Refs bury the whistle for small things on the PK, and in front of the net battles all game long.
While it was all routine stuff I for one thought it was refreshing to see a non erskine D man battling in front.
RE Oleksy: Encouraging to know this since I missed the game.
Last week Alan May did an Erskine breakdown and he mentioned something along the lines of "they aren't going to call everything". In fact alot of times the opposing forward will take a retaliation shot which can end up getting called.
Its a fine line to walk since you can't be too blatent but alot will be let go in front of the net especially on the PK.
