Play-wise, its a good game from both teams. But as far as officiating goes, its an example of the reason so many long time NHL fans think that the NHL these days is a complete joke.
Its also an example of why I hate watching nationally broadcast NHL games, becasue you are guaranteed to see a bunch of questionable calls (and even more questionable non-calls) that seem to be for only one purpose; to keep the game as close and "exciting" as possible. Its like the refs in the nationally broadcast games are under strict orders from the NHL to keep the games within a goal and make sure they make calls (and ignore other calls) to guarantee the game stays as close as possible.
