Calgary Flames forward Milan Lucic was assessed a five-minute major and ejected from Game 3 on Sunday night in Edmonton when he bowled over Oilers goalie Mike Smith in the third period. After Lucic departed, Smith was temporarily removed from the game and went to the dressing room with trainers, prompting the Oilers to place Mikko Koskinen in goal. But Smith returned after four minutes of play had passed. The hit by Lucic, which earned him a major for charging and a 10-minute misconduct, prompted a melee behind the Oilers’ goal, as Smith’s teammates came to his aid. Three players from each team, in addition to Lucic, were assessed rough minors and sent to the penalty

EDMONTON – Nobody uses a press conference to send more messages than Darryl Sutter, and the Flames coach had one for the referees Sunday morning: Asked about what changed in both games after Calgary built early leads, the Flames coach suggested overzealous officiating had plenty to do with it. “The difference would be the officiating will get better as the series goes on,” said Sutter. “The minor penalties in this series are 20-16 – that’s a little out of hand, I’d say. I don’t think either team is responsible for that. That’s ten per game.  “Think about it, 36 minors in two games. I mean, how many times do you see multiple double minors? “We should have pictures of the penalty box and see who is sitting there.
