Steve Downie had already gotten away with a trip, maybe two calls on the same shift when Tobias Enstrom hit the ice. Maybe it was a hook. Or maybe it was a dive. Either way, the officials were not going to let that slide three times in succession. No way. And that penalty led to a tying power-play goal that cost the Flyers two points in regulation. They settled for one in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Winnipeg Jets. “I didn’t think I tripped on the first one. It was just a battle for the puck,” Downie said. “The one by the net was questionable, but the one off the draw, I got my stick up. “I got to look at it. I didn’t think I pulled it, but my stick was up, so … Once you get your stick up in his glove, they are going to call it every time.” Some players thought fatigue was a factor in the third period.
