I don't know if Fleury actually dove, but it's photoshop worthy.

I have to see another angle of it. I don't think I've ever seen Fleury flop or dive before but that sure looked...funny...

I have to see it again, what I think may have happened was he felt his mask coming off so he tried to fling it completely off and get the whistlr while in the meantime goal was scored.

Yeah, no doubt Fleury tried to buy a call there. At least it looked like he tried to get a call

Just did watch it. Orpik did lift his mask off. He then helped the cause.

Stamkos with a blatant dive agains the Devils. Looked like Krys Barch's stick grazed him and he just jumped to the ice

And takes Hawks best PK forward off ice in process leading to Yotes goal

Truly sick of NHL rewarding teams for dives

If a player is called for a dive then it should negate the original call

So, he didn't hook at all? I find it funny that you are complaining about a team being rewarded from something, considering you were rewarded from a non hit to the head the other night.

It looked to me like Kruger got his hands and it deserved a call but jesus was the dive really necessary? With the way they've been calling games this season they're going to pick up on an obvious hook. No need to embarrass yourself with a flop and hurt your team when you get called on it.

Love Kadri but he sure loves to try to get those calls. Usually works too.

Good on the refs for calling the dive then. That's the point of the penalty. Blackhawkswincup was complaining about someone else being taken off the ice with the dive. I asked him if there was a hook or not. I didn't say anything about the dive.

Well in his defense hooking is one of the few calls that would be made regardless of whether or not there was a dive since the mere act of bringing your stick level with a player's mid section and making contact deserves a call blah blah blah. But otherwise he's right. Things like tripping, spearing, cross checking, etc. don't necessarily get called unless they were severe enough. So when a player flops when being lightly touched or not touched at all then the offending player doesn't deserve time in the box and the diver should be the only one serving a penalty.

I think everybody can agree there. But in this instance Kruger got enough of OEL's hands to deserve 2 min.

Lehtonen! What a diving pos!

Camera catches him laughing about it as they call a penalty on Kyle Palmieri.
Pathetic.

Didn't realize wingels was so weak on his skates. All it took was for the sharks to be on PK, and feel slight body contact for him to throw himself face first to the ice.
