Ott got robbed
tying goal disallowed, due to ref blindness
Price is a diver. Who knew?
Ottawa eliminated on a bad call... Yay, NHL.
REFS WIN REFS WIN!
Regardless of which team you're rooting for, I hate to see a series-ending game decided by s***ty reffing. NHL needs to get its s*** together.
When I read posts like this, I just shake my head. As a referee, I can tell you that this kind of thing happens at every level of the game. Puck hits the goalie, ref thinks the goalie has it, ref blows the whistle, puck goes into the net. The puck was laying down right next to him out of the refs view. It wasn't a case of crappy reffing. It was just bad luck. Human error is part of the game. The Wings and every other team has benefitted from this kind of play before. They have also been stung by it. It won't be the first time and it won't be the last.
There is really no way to fix this issue unless you give the referee x-ray glasses or remove them from the ice entirely and have them sitting in a video booth where they can make every call from there.
Now, what every hockey fan should be discussing is the fact that they had 40+ shots on net and couldn't beat Price once. As a Wings fan, that would terrify me because it shows that while Montreal was outhustled and outplayed, their goalie kept them in it like he has all season. He is probably going to win the Vezina trophy this season. For those who think that Tampa Bay was going to be an impossible team to beat, imagine playing Montreal. That is just as scary.
