The Flyers, according to CSN Philly, didn't view the play as "malicious" and Talbot said that Pouliot isn't a dirty player.
Talbot told Sarah Baicker, "I can’t really skate that well, so I may have stumbled on my feet. I didn’t feel like I got pushed or anything." He added that he felt he may have tripped before he was even touched by Pouliot.
Flyers coach Craig Berube described it as a an accident and he said that he doesn't think that Pouliot did more than give Talbot a bit of a bump while he was already off balance.
After the game, Alain Vigneault said "I just looked at it quickly after the period. The refs thought it was a 5 minutes, I thought Pouliot was trying to go shoulder to shoulder and Talbot lost his step a little bit and fell awkwardly into the boards. They felt he deserved a major and a 5 minute misconduct.”
As of last night, according to Louis Jean of TVA in Montreal, the play was under review from the NHL.
