I don't have a problem with calling Begin for interference (a.k.a. late hate), boarding or even charging on that play. I also don't have a problem with a call that late in the game, a foul in the first 5 minutes of the game should still be called a foul in the last 5 minutes of the game.

What I take issue with is consistency of the officials, and I'm not talking strictly about this series or the last (but in every playoff series). The refs are letting forwards run d-men on an almost constant basis with hits (that by the Begin call standard) should be considered interference or boarding etc... If you're going to make a call on a marginal hit near the players bench then why not make a call when a similar hit occurs near the icing line?
