A couple calls were weak, but that's no different than any other game. A team shouldn't get the benefit of the doubt just because they've already had 6 or 7 or 10 penalties.
The problem was that there were definetly many penalties that weren't called on the Canes, penalties that were as much deserved. Its not bias, I call what I see, and what I saw, were refs looking only one way. So it was okay to be strict with the Habs, and ok to have a double-standard for the Canes?
Also, both reviewed goals were also very borderline. Staal's skate was effectively pushing forward the net when he deviated the puck. And Markov's goal was very borderline has he seemed to have touched the puck below his shoulder.
