I have also seen it numerous times where the refs tend to let things more in respect to the veterans on the Red Wings. As long as the reffing is consistant that is all I ask for as last series vs Canucks it wasn't. One day they called all obstruction the next they didn't. Must be frustrating to players when it changes from day to day.
