An eye for an eye reaction like that just tells the other team they can sucker you into putting yourself in an even worse spot. Having a reputation that you'll retaliate is almost as bad as having the reputation that you're soft.

Brouwer wasn't getting a penalty on that play. If someone goes after him, the odds are that we'd be down a man and the best PP in the league this season would have had a chance to get back into the game. The win is the most important thing.

You want to be the team that can play a physical game while staying out of the box. Even better if you have a lethal PP to punish them if they start to crumble.
You must have missed the San Jose Blues game the other night. The refs knew why San Jose did what they did, San Jose walked away with plenty of power plays even though they exacted their revenge.
