The Anaheim Ducks were irate after their 3-1 loss to Dallas Friday night because they felt Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas got away with a spear against one of their star players, Corey Perry.
"What do you want me to say?" Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau asked rhetorically. "Good refs have bad games. Like good hockey players have bad games, good refs have bad games." Perry said: "When he sticks his stick up, lifts it up and pulls it, I don't know what you'd call that.That's spearing to me." The Ducks' Brad Staubitz was penalized for seven minutes for retaliating with a spear against Dallas rookie Brenden Dillon. "I don't know," Perry said. "You've just got to call the first one and all that (stuff) doesn't happen. But they're in their own league tonight, I guess."
