Watched playoffs games, watched a few games at the World's too... NHL refs should really look at how they're doing things over there : sure they make mistakes once in a while but there's a few certainty...

1. they don't care what the score is, 3-2 in the last few minutes you'll get called if you do something wrong, happened more than once
2. they don't care if you're already down a man, you trip or elbow someone you'll get the chance to play 3 vs 5

the difference is right there, in the Worlds, they see something - they call a penalty, in the NHL they see something - look at the board - blow whistle (or not)...

seen many players or coaches complain at the Worlds ? me neither... they all know they have to play WITHIN the rulebook, not within parts of the rulebook the ref feel like applying on a particular game... finals ? semi ? late in the 3rd trailing by 1 ? not the refs problem... if you dont want to get "called", play within the rules...
