Hmmmm, Pit down by 2 and they get two straight powerplays to tie it up....how strange.

and that is why I am so glad we aren't playing Pit.

Or could it be that more talented teams are able to draw more penalties with their speed and play?

It is typical of around here....complain about reffing....non-stop, even when the Wings aren't playing. It does get pretty tiresome.

I'll admit to not watching most of the game last night, but from what I saw, CBJ got away with taking a ton of liberties, there was definitely no favouritism going the Pens way from the little that I saw.

From a pure stats perspective, CBJ took a grand total of 3 penalties during the game (yup, gotta be a conspiracy here). Pens took 4 penalties by the way, theirs were all well deserved of course.

Can we be a bit more original around here (at least when the Wings aren't playing against them?)

I thought that game was officiated pretty well actually.

Especially the chip and chase penalties. If that game is any indication, the Wings had better be careful. If a guy chips the puck past you, DON'T TOUCH HIM!

I agree, the first two periods were absolutely punishing and the only penalties where for s*** like interference and the like. That tells me the rough stuff is ok, just don't obstruct. I can live with that.

Shout out to my boy Brandon Dubinsky who apparently loves the s*** out of cross checking Sidney.

If a player has position on him it shouldn't be interference, and the wings have been called on a lot of those this year, even when we had the position on the guy trying to get by.

I can agree with that, but what I saw being called were penalties like Scuderi's where the puck was chipped past him and then he proceeded to skate in front of the guy's skating space to slow him down. That should be a penalty every time.

I didn't watch the game so I can't argue either way on that. Just thought I'd add my 2 cents about that type of call.

I hate Crosby as much as anyone else. However, the refs didn't favor anyone in that game. Two penalties were missed and very very bad ones. A Slew-foot and a stick to the nuts.

Stick to the nuts is old news. No penalty. No fine. No suspension. Let's get real... this is teh PLAYOFFS! /sarcasm.

In other news:

Dear Pittsburgh Fans,

Just because your players fall down when hit by an opposing Blue Jacket player does not mean that you should boo if there is no penalty called.

Hitting is still (partially) legal in Ye Olde NHL.

Yours Truly,

I was so happy the Penguins lost I almost peed myself laughing. I could care less the Blue Jackets won but I'm just going to enjoy the Penguins boards tonight and see which referee and/or league official screwed them this time.

You'd think that some of their fans (Pens or Phoenix for that matter) would have learned the game by now.

Jackets win! First playoff win in club history! They really earned it.

They could take this series. They absolutely could.

They won't though. Even if they continue to out-play the PenWhines the rest of the series, it's still an Ohio Pro Sports team, they are destined to lose in the most excruciatingly painful way possible.
