Seriously they give us a 5 on 3 in OT...(which is like sending 8 guys to the box in regulation) when on the same play Reich is highsticked. To make things worse, the ref 20 feet away never made the call, the ref 100 feet away did. The NHL is sad, the two referee system is sad. Gary Bettman is a moron! If you guys can be happy with the way your team won the game, then you should be ashamed to be an NHL fan. As for the the bruins tying it, and being in OT... we outplayed, out-chanced, outworked and out-hit, and outshot the HABS, and deserved to win the game.
Bruins were able to tie on a couple of chincy calls. Are you ok with them?????
Also, Reich was not highsticked based on the rule. The rule states that it is not a penalty on a follow through as Ron MacLean pointed out on the post game after Cherry's rant.
"A "high stick" is one which is carried above the height of the opponent's shoulders. A player is permitted accidental contact on an opponent if the act is committed as a normal windup or follow through of a shooting motion."
Of course, I'd be pissed if we lost this way too
Also, Carey Price > Tim Thomas in this game.
