Here's what Lindy Ruff had to say about the Sabres "getting away with murder" last night. Count the whinings.
I just feel they're doing a lot of whining. They're really doing a lot of whining. I didn't hear any whining when they had 10 powerplays in Philly and I didn't hear any whining when the powerplays in the first game were lopsided. But all of a sudden there's all this whining about we're getting away with murder. That's a bunch of crap. That's for the media, that's for the officials to read. Here, let's get the next call. That's a bunch of crap. Let's just play.
We're just playing. There hasn't been one word about the officiating out of us. But if they want to cry about the officiating and whine about different calls, go ahead. Go ahead.
Six. Six whinings. Duh, whining!
Mike Richards responded: [Philly Sports Daily]
“That’s fine, that’s fine,” Richards said, whose squad dropped Game 4 to lock the series at two apiece coming back to Philadelphia. “We’re focused on tomorrow night. [Ruff] seems to have a way with the media and does the same thing every time his team is in the playoffs. We’re focused on tomorrow and getting a good start and getting hits on their skill players. We’re not worried about the other stuff.”
The Flyers are going to murder the Sabres tomorrow.
Here's the audio. Fun starts around the 3:30 mark.
