You act like this is the first time ever that a referee has missed a call during a game.
It happens. Suck it up and take your lumps. Stop coming here with excuses and instigating conversations about the officiating when you acknowledge that the Wings were the better team in the match. It comes off as petty.
Oh, I'm sorry. Can we not discuss the game in the game day thread?
Just calling them as I see them my friend.
Sorry if that rubs you the wrong way.
And it's a significant thing to bring up, since both instances I am referring to led to Red Wing power play goals. It directly effected the outcome of the game. So, yes, I'm annoyed by it...you guys would be if it were the other way around. I've seen plenty of bitching in here about the reffing over the years.
If neither call or non-call led to anything on the scoreboard, it wouldn't be as much of an issue...but, unfortunately, that wasn't the case.
But yes, as I said, the Red Wings were the better team overall in the game. The Blues owned the 1st and the Wings took the 2nd and 3rd periods. The Blues got less and less sustained pressure as the game went on. I'm surprised it was only a 2-1 game with a few minutes to go in the game.
Goaltending was strong again, for both teams.
And this game was a bit rougher than most Blues-Wings games. Kind of a throwback of sorts. Fun to watch anyway.
