I'm not taking anything away from Detroit. They made the most of their chances, and the first period really demonstrating how freakishly dominating the Red Wings can be.

Still, the reffing in this game was brutal, and may have made the difference...
The non call on Rafalsky was brutal, making it worse was the fact that it was in the middle of 5 straight Detroit PP's. In the 3rd it was WWF rules, Detroit got away with 3 or 4 crosschecks not called, plus Lidstrom should have had a couple of obstruction calls.
