And the OT goal, was perfectly legitimate..there isn't an explanation as to why it wasn't. The game against Carolina the other night where the calls were 11-2 in favor of Carolina seemed a little out of hand (I didn't see the game), but don't act like all 30 teams in the league don't get screwed over on occasion...in the end, it all equals out...
I don't think you quite understand the history here.
We were on the verge of upsetting the Carolina Hurricanes the year they won the cup. Justin Williams takes out captain Koivu, who was driving to the net, two refs watching the play, no call, four minute PP, we score once, we win the game, take a 3-0 strangle hold and ultimately win that series.
Rewind when we're up 2-1 games against Carolina in the play-offs and Fraser calls Therrien for a bench minor for nothing, giving the Canes a 5-on-3, which they score and tie the game, eventually winning it in OT, giving them all the momentum, we never recover from a series we would have won.
We've gotten screwed practically every game against the Hurricanes and it's only worse in the play-offs.
