The announcers made it sound like Leipsic was getting hacked repeatedly. I noticed that there were two refs on the ice. Neither one wanted to call the other penalties? I also noticed that Elliot was trying to run over Leipsic after the hit. Was he ejected too?

If I am the guy getting picked on by the other two, I would have done the same thing. Maybe the two refs should be the ones getting suspended!

I see the same thing in the AHL. The refs don't call penalties that should be called (i.e. somebody getting a stick broken over them) and eventually there is a payback because the player feels forced to protect himself, since the refs refuse to do so. It doesn't make it right, but it is reality in today's hockey.
