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?)
Take a peek at the Penguins BOUGHT and PAID FOR fraudulent Cup win in 09 - especially our series in the Finals and get back to me. The Penguins and Crosby are pushed upon every hockey fan worldwide yet he maybe cracks the Top 5 players in the league. Dude doesn't even kill penalties. And he sure as hell ain't a true captain. He is full of excuses and cliches and thinks the game owes him something. The Penguins get ALL the calls and they get all the SYMPATHY from the NHL. This is no secret.
Whining about the refs is silly most times, but watching the joke the league looks like by pegging Crosby as the next/best one is funny - and not by accident. All those years living in Lemieux's house made him even more of a punk/pass the buck/complainer than he was in the QMJHL. And their coach now stands behind that team as another spoiled, excuse filled, woe-is-me "leader".
When a team is laughed at more than the Toronto Maple Leafs - that's saying something.
