The Ducks and Canucks just finished game 3 of their Western Conference Semi-Final and while some may question some of the calls during the game a further look shows you that clearly the referee's made the correct calls. Yes, the Ducks were called for 6 mins in penalties more, there were several justifiable calls made in the game.

In fact, being a Canuck fan I would question calling Ryan Getzlaf for the trip when clearly the Canuck rookie Alex Edler tried to sell the call with an Oscar worthy dive. The premiss behind the trip/hook and a dive call is really questionable in my mind, especially in such obvious situations as tonight. Personally, I feel the referee should be given the opportunity to call either both or just the dive in some instances.
Regardless, the Canucks have got to learn to finish on the power-play opportunities if they have any hope in evening up the series on Tuesday. As for the Ducks, it's really fortunate for them that the Canucks have a terrible power-play.
Although the Canucks ended the game with the advatange in number of power-plays the referee's were very clear to indicate the standard for this evenings game. It was a matter of taking advantage of your opportunity, the Ducks did and the Canucks continued to struggle.
