Listening to 97.1 on my way home from class, and they are saying that the NHL is reviewing the tape of game two closely today for officiating stuff. Could this mean that a positive change could be made for game three on out? Could they finally notice Seto and Co. diving and start calling it?

It's a little late for them to be getting on the ball about this. No amount of reviewing is going to reverse a 2-0 series hole. The games were close enough where the Wings could have lost even without all the penalties and nonsense; it's a real tightrope they're going to have to walk to get this series at even. But I do hope they tighten up the officiating, every little bit helps.

Food for thought, comments from one of the tin foil hat wearers:

"Remember the NBA ref who confessed to fixing games? He also acknowledged the league's (Bettman at the time) involvement in helping to make sure it gets the outcomes it desires for TV ratings, franchise help, merch sales, etc. He claimed on 60 Minutes he could predict the outcome of a game 80% of the time just by reading the pre-game league memo to the officials"

Mlive column

Just sayin'...

It would make absolutely no sense for the NHL to screw one of its biggest hockey markets out of success.

They are a business, no one is that stupid.

So what if the refs make it one sided in the Red Wings favor for Games 3 and 4 and the Wings end up winning? How would you guys feel about that?

I'm not really sure what is fair and what isn't these days but I wouldn't feel right about it. I mean, really, what the hell is going on here with the game of hockey? What has happened to my skoooo? (+1 if you get the reference).


I'd feel content.

Eye for an eye.

In fact I'm expecting it, and if it doesn't happen I'll go to Don Corleone for justice.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Don't do us any favours. Fact of the matter is when they've tilted the series into a 2 games to none advantage to one team, any makeup calls can NEVER have the same effect. The damage is done and me personally I am very nearly approaching my end with the NHL in this guise. From Betteman to Colin Campbell to the referees. It has no integrity, and no professionalism anymore.

Back in the day infamous calls or non calls like the 1993 Kerry Fraser highsticking non call on Gretzky would live in infamy for years and years. These days it seems there are so damn many every playoffs we can't even keep track of them.

You got a horse picked out? Hopefully, it's an old one anyways and not anybody's prized nag. :ph34r:

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Here's a Freep article about the game. I LIKE it. And yes, it's biased, but factual.

If the calls can be at 3-4 for each team, we're going to be fine. 5on5 we've been the better team, got the better chances, and scored more goals. The last time San Jose had a 2-0 lead in a series was 2006 against Edmonton... they lost in 6 games. If the officials dont dictate games, this is still a series.

"HOLDING?!"
"Wow, really?"

Exactly what I thought when I saw it. Except the second thing was like when you see something that shouldn't exist in our universe (like a Mariah Carey movie) and you say "WOW, really?!

I HAD to give you a +1 for that.

i'm not sure about all the whining and crying going on in this thread. do you guys seriously think you got robbed by the refs? all i hear is complaints about non calls for diving. i haven't read a single legit post about how the refs made a bad call, missed a call or made a non call on the sharks. if anything, they were calling the sharks tighter than the wings to keep the disparity between the numbers more even. the truth is that the refs set the tone of the game with the slashing call on heatley, reinforced the rules with the two calls on big bird and clearly stated the nothing was going to be tolerated when they called boarding on marleau at the end of the first. the sharks realized this and adjusted their game while the wings didn't and went on to commit seven more penalties.

and what does your diving argument really do for the outcome of the games? if it's a dive, then there must have been a wing committing a penalty so the best case scenario would be offsetting minors. and don't be surprised if the refs call a diving penalty on the wings tomorrow just for all the whining they have been doing.

personally, i hope (and i wouldn't be surprised) that the refs call a game for the wings in game 3 or 4. all it's really going to do is expose the real problem for the wings in the series and that is their suspect special teams play.

wings have scored 2 goals on the power play

sharks have scored 4 and 2 have been on 5 on 3's, with probably close to 3 times as many man advantages

yes, real "suspect"

Oh golly gee, a Sharks fan just had to come here and tell us all how wrong we are. Whatever would we do without your stunning insight.

There is every reason to believe that the "conspiracy" or "bias" against Detroit is a series of painful coincidences connected, and amplified, by a minority of Red Wings fans who wear institutional scheming like a warm blanket to shelter them from Detroit's occasional failures as a team.

The officiating Sunday night was atrocious. It was unforgiveable. There have been a few instances in these playoffs in which the referees seemed as though they were getting paid by the ill-conceived penalty, and last night was one of them. Ten power plays for the San Jose Sharks in their 4-3 victory, and four for the Wings. It was an embarrassment.

I'm waiting for the Sharks fan to explain how the Wings have "suspect" special teams, when the Sharks only have two more power play goals then us with over twice as many chances.

Your an embarrassment to other shark fans. Seriously you cant seriously acknowledge that the Wings got hosed at least once, and one could make the argument for both games. Sure the Sharks had some calls go against them, but nothing compared to the Wings.The sharks are diving the wings have not and if I was a betting man the second that the wings do they will get an embelishing call.... mark it down
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
