You're not biased? I can't take you at your word on that; I don't recall reading your posts before and unless I have, I just don't know what's true and what isn't. As I said above, I watched Bertuzzi do it to Jackman (either Game 2 or 3, not sure exactly which one it was any longer; wish the playoff threads were still around right about now) and it was a total dive. It wasn't embellishing a call because he did it before anything happened. It was rather embarrassing. Bertuzzi doesn't do all the time, but when he does do it, he generally gets the call. Normally I would agree with the obstruction remark, but I thought the Canucks had more than their fair share of it last night too. The refs weren't calling any of it at all. Still a good game to watch in spite of it all (that Sopel; what a goalscorer he is).
