I'm happy he scored, truly. But **** him.
Who cares? THere was a dive and it was not called. There was some serious roughing by Ribs and it was not called. These were both in direct view of the ref who was watching the whole time.

I would agree with you if the ref only saw the retaliation. That would just be a fact of life. This was not that at all, which is why it's such a horrible display of reffing.

If I had to guess, I would bet that the ref was worried that the Caps were called for too many penalties. Some weak ass, ******** excuse like that.
