Seriously, I've played 15 games and zero power plays, while the slightest touch results in me being short-handed. My goalie has been bodychecked every game and nothing. I nudge their goalie and I get hauled off.
What I get nailed for is hitting from behind. Happens about 3 times a game. You would think players would turn their body a little instead of facing the boards every time and going straight into it.
That said on occasion the other team does get called for high sticking . It does happen but there for sure is a favoritism. Not that it matters since I usually score shorthanded other than on the power play.

I used to wonder the same but the last two offline games I played there were 4 penalties called on the other team 2 on me. Even had a 5 on 3 which ended quickly from a goal.
