storm: Storm 6 Otters 3

What the heck was with the unsportsmanlike 10 minute misconducts given to Bertuzzi and Pierog? They didn't even get a chance to touch each other before the linesmen dove in. Is this part of the new fighting rules? It would have been better to have let them go and each get 5 - they would have had 5 less minutes to chirp each other in the box for the entire time at least! From what I saw of their 10 minute long chat in the bin, that probably contributed more to unsportsmanlike conduct than a fight would have, considering the in-box officials had to speak (looked like lecturing) with each one of them and delay release them individually after the whistle once the time was up. One of the more bizarre calls I've seen in a while....


Sorry - this comment was intended for the Petes game post - I just re-posted in there. My apologies....
