from Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald, One day — and heaps of deserved criticism — later, Curtis Glencross was still fussing about the call.
In Wednesday’s third period against the home-ice Detroit Red Wings, Glencross had been whistled for a retaliatory chop on Henrik Zetterberg.
The resulting minor gave the Wings a two-man advantage, on which they capitalized. The hosts added another goal just as Glencross was stepping onto the ice to cap their 5-3 triumph over the Calgary Flames.
“It’s obvious we were in Detroit because the ref missed the first one on them and called the second one,” said Glencross, who, with Anaheim’s Corey Perry and Carolina’s Tuomo Ruutu, tops the National Hockey League with four slashing minors. “If we were playing any other team in the league, they probably wouldn’t have called it.”
