10:58 AM ET 11.24 | The Ottawa Senators earned a 4-2 victory over Detroit last night, but it wasn't easy. The Red Wings got three separate 5-on-3 penalties over the course of the game and both of their goals came with the man advantage. While Ottawa Senators goaltender Robin Lehner thinks his team has to be a bit more disciplined, he also put a fair amount of the blame on the opposition. "It's tough on the (officials)," Lehner told the Ottawa Sun. "I don't think it's their fault. It's like there was water out there with how much they were diving." Ottawa was charged with two tripping penalties and three hooking minors over the course of the game. Senators forward Clarke MacArthur scored two goals, but was also charged for holding. "I don't know if their skate sharpener was broken over there or what? There was a couple where they went down pretty easy," MacArthur said, according to the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch.

"Senator accuse Red Wings of diving"

Oh? Is that why Pavel Datsyuk is concussed? Must've dived head first, right?

That may be so. Most teams have at least a couple of guys who go down easier than Madonna. Some teams, like Montreal and Vancouver only have a couple who don't.

Canucks have changed with Torts there, less diving and more forechecking. The fact Lapierre is no longer there has also caused their diving numbers to plummet.

The only way to stop the diving is to have the refs not call it. That, however would mean that the NHL would have to hirer refs who know something about hockey and we all know that wont happen.
