It's more of a motivator to the players of either team than it is the refs... if the players aren't sequestered from the media. Either way, if Lavi slaps a headline on the board before Game 5: 'Ruff calls Flyers whiners', I'm sure they'll have a little extra spring in their step.
Did you watch Game 5 of the SCF? Blackhawks absolutely bought some calls on Pronger by chirping about it over and over.
