Knuble is missed in the crease.
Yeah, I never anticipated we'd miss Knuble this much.
I'd also like to point out that I'm proud of these guys for the point as well considering the absolute ass-banging we got from the refs.
I don't know what was more egregious, the Carter "delay of game", the Hartnell "hook" (McKee's taking lessons from Crosby), the Malkin punch, the Carcillo "slash" (right before he got speared), or Giroux getting tripped when the ref was already yelling at Orpik and then he tripped him. Also can't forget the slash that knocked the stick out of Carter's hands which was certainly an "automatic call" last year in OT when we were already shorthanded.
I mean, I do not see how the Pens are 19th in times shorthanded, every time we play them, there are 5-6 of these calls which the refs simply ignore. It's absolutely aggravating, it's a total joke what hockey has become. It's all about reputation, not about what actually happens on the ice.
I'd also like to add that all the Pens fans justifying Crosby's pathetic antics after he got tapped in the damn visor are exactly what's wrong with hockey.
