Despite the fact that Cole hasn't really ever had more than moderate success on the PP? It was a guess at best that he'd be good there and so far a lucky one.
Cole didn't play much on the PP that has nothing to do with success on the PP. Martin was saying 'the last team didn't play Cole on the power play so why ever would we?" which is not rational thinking.
Diving also references "embellishment." There was no doubt he tripped, but there is also a lot of doubt that the weak trip made him go flying with 2 or 3 spins, either.

I'm happy I'm not a ref, but I don't think it was a dive. Anyways... Et le but ! hehehe Go Habs go ! 4-0 !
