Out of the 10 penalties, only one was given to the coach. That makes 9 - 2 in penalty calls and when Clarington was down 6 men to 2, again only the 1 was the coaches penalty and the ref gave 3 slashes within one minute (every time a player's stick came into contact with the opponents stick). The coach should definitely file a complaint, not to change anything from his game but to help prevent these meatheads from doing the same thing again. I know we are short refs but that shouldn't mean that we should have an "anything goes" policy for the refs either. They are paid to do their job and they need to take it serious or actions should be taken.
