I think that should be the case for all instances. Obviously, if something is egregious, it needs to be called -- like a high stick or something like that, but in no way should the spotlight be on the refs. No ****ing way.
Eh, see I think the changing standard in OT is ridiculous. The Caps Game 7 is a case in point, because the assumption of the changing standard leads to fans flipping out when a penalty is called and "ruins the game." Lupul scoring on a PP was a travesty to many neutral fans, and obviously the Caps fans. Never mind that the Caps defensemen had taken down two players at the blue line within 2 minutes that were breaking out and would have gone in on odd-man rushes because the D was out of position.
A penalty is a penalty....call it.
