Flames Fans Blame Refs Sounds like LGW during the playoffs. They bitched because of too many penalties we ***** because we didn't get calls our way.
The only thing I really had a problem with (and not much of one) was the Ericsson penalty. It was exceptionally weak compared to everything that was let go (Helm getting mauled from behind, Zetterberg sitting on someone behind the net, etc), and it led directly to the first Chicago goal.
It's not huge, and the Wings should have played better instead of looking like crap, but I'd rather refs swallow their whistles for the whole game and not call ticky-tacky crap, or call it at least 50% of the time.
I'm guessing a lot of people had the CSN feed tonight via the NHL Network (as I did), so they wouldn't have even heard it.
During the 3rd period I thought Detroit was going to get a diving call because players started to go down to easily. The seemed to care more about trying to get a call in the corner rather than crash the net and score a goal.
