Lindy Ruff Calls Flyers a Bunch of Whiners

Apr 22, 2011, 7:34 PM EDT

The Flyers were not happy with the officiating after last night’s 1-0 loss and Mike Richards went as far as saying the Sabres got away with murder. Sabres coach Lindy Ruff was not ammused.

“I just feel that they’re doing a lot of whining,” Sabres coach Lindy  Ruff said at his Thursday press conference. “They’re really doing a lot  of whining.

How much whining are they doing, Lindy?

“I didn’t hear any whining when they had 10 power  plays in Philly, and I didn’t hear any whining when they power plays 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.  That’s, ‘Here, let’s get the next call.’ That’s a bunch of crap. Let’s  just play.”

And your quotes right there, Lindy, who are they for?

Tim Pannacio has more on the backstory. I’m sensing there’s going to be some heated play on Friday night. Just a little.
