Can you believe that someone blamed the ice in the Heritage Classic game? Now it's the refs. It always seems to be the refs. Habs are the most penalized penalty. Do you believe that the Refs are conspiring...or that the team is just lazy and undisciplined? Habs take many, many, lazy penalties and a lot of it has to do with lack of speed on D (hooking, holding, tripping calls) and lack of size (slashing, hooking).

As far as blame for this game, the reffs did their part, but they didn't miss 2 open nets. They also weren't responsible for the team beign unable to get the puck out of their zone at the end of the game. This has been an issue for a while now. Our old, slow defense struggling to get the puck out of their own zone and forwards taking off far too early.
You also forgot the scheduling, NHL is out to get us dude
