I'll give them one thing, they were consistent and didn't play favorites, but tonights game was one of the worst displays of officiating since the lock out... they missed countless blatent penalties (both ways) all night...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

But oddly enough, Chicago's first goal came on, you guessed it, a powerplay.

Walkom's a lousy ref, so I'm not at all surprised.

in my opinion it is nowhere near the worst; not really even that bad. the reason? like you said, it was fair. both teams were called even and the game itself was even. you can tell when a game is going to be called tight or when it will be loose. and its up to the teams and players to recognize that and take advantage of it.

and honestly i didn't see a lot of missed calls anyways. its the ticky tack penalties that have caused diving to go through the roof. really have to earn the penalties tonight

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

And one of their goals was on a delayed penalty, so you could say they scored 2 PP goals.

Just a sad officiating effort overall though. And I'm usually of the opinion that there are too many penalties called, I like 5-on-5 play, but this was ridiculous, you gotta make the calls when they're there to be made.

This forum is so predictable. Once Ken started to ***** about us not getting a penalty I knew this thread was coming.

Officiating didn't lose this game for the Wings, Howard playing like a block of swiss cheese did. This loss is all on him. His softies have deflated this team. Time for Babcock to bench him. 21 goals in 6 games is unacceptable.

Howard has been aweful.

I actually liked the way the game was called. At least, better than what we get a lot of games.

There was a fair amount of clutching, but not like late-90's level, and it was called even on both sides. Chicago took advantage and played very aggressive defensively. It made the game more exciting IMO.

Third goal was weak too. Giving up a goal against Kopecky??? C'mon! Howard needs to make those saves. Last year he did....

wasn't exactly the greatest D though either

it was Howie vs. Kopecky n they were movin in fast... can't give ALL the blame to Howie

edit: even though it does seem like Howie was making those great saves a lot more frequently last year than this year
:(
maybe he's gettin spoiled?

Like I said, giving up those kind of goals are deflating. A save there could have changed the game...

I cringe whenever someone shoots the puck at Howard lately because there's a high-probablity it's going in.

It is deflating

but so are s***ty passes and never scoring

defense failed, goal was scored, you're down by two... if you can't score a goal after that then I don't think the goalie is the #1 target for blame

True, but save percentage is a better indicator and Jimmy hasn't been doing too well lately in that department either.

If When Ozzie does well again on Sunday, we need to start seeing him more frequently.

It was about as fair as you can get. 1 powerplay to 0 power plays. Works for me. They let them play.
