In truth I think they were actually ticked that the Flyers sent a line with Brash and Preems out at the end of a dirty game, while the Flyers had extra players on the ice (power play 5 on 3 or 5 on 4 - I forget). The Blues had no shot at surviving a scuffle at that point, and I think that is what Mellanby was carping at. That said, after Weight's cheap shot, retribution was called for. One "gutless" move deserves another.

In the old days Glen Cochrane would have climbed into the Blues bench and beat Mellanby into pulp. Better yet, someone would have ended Weight's evening early and painfully (and that is how this should have been handled - get it Brash?).
