So what if the refs make it one sided in the Red Wings favor for Games 3 and 4 and the Wings end up winning? How would you guys feel about that?
I'm not really sure what is fair and what isn't these days but I wouldn't feel right about it. I mean, really, what the hell is going on here with the game of hockey? What has happened to my skoooo? (+1 if you get the reference).
I'd hate it! Just like I dispised the Heatley penalty late in the game. That was a terrible call.
But I hated it for 2 reasons:
1. It wasn't a penalty.
2. The ref used it as a make-up call. Essentially that tells every fan and player that "We've been f**king you over all game long so here's a freebie". It acknowledges what a poor job they've done.
I really hope they call the standard evenly for game 3 and none of that ticky-tack crap like Howard's slashing or Abby's interference.
And most of the shenanigans that are taking place out there will end the minute one of the zebra's grows a pair and calls the Sharks for diving. It embarrasses the officials and the NHL.
