mccreary showed why he is the best in the business and why both teams wanted him to be a referee.

i've seen threads whining about "canadian referees" -- what these keyboard warriors don't know is that both teams are given a heads up on who is officiating the game and can file a dispute in case they disagree with a decision and nominate their own choices.
Agreed with this whole post. I wish the refs in the NHL could do it like the Olympics. I would take no touch icing and no trapezoid for that kind of hockey 82+ times a year.
