It was a blatant hand closed on he puck in front of the ref and no call. One day....teams will learn when you are ahead of the Canucks don't even breathe on a Sedin lest the flop over as if shot with a .50 cal. They live off PPs. No PP...Canucks are just above average.

That is why I love watching them in the playoffs the last couple of years. Teams have seemed to figure out that the Nucks dive and instead of not touching them the other teams just hit harder to make the penalty worthwhile and in the playoffs the refs hardly call crap like that. I think of it as karma.
Hopefully Bickell hits at least one of the Sedin sisters hard next game. Canucks are the most disgusting team to watch play hockey. There will come a time when another team will get so disgusted with them that there will be major mahem.
The Canucks and especially the likes of the Sendin sisters, Kessler, Burrows the biter, Lappiere and their coach and GM are a disgrace to the sport. I hope the league instead of just penalizing them starts fining and suspending them for their diving.
A Sedin dive with 3:21 left in the 3rd gives the nucks their third straight PP and the convert to tie. In the previous PP a nuck closed his hand on the puck and the nuck commentators were a little stunned there was no penalty called.
Yeah, IIRC, he dove the opposite direction he should have.

The play that lead to a boarding call on Pietrangelo? I didn't think it was a dive. I think he put himself in a vulnerable position, but Pietrangelo hit him pretty damn hard.
