I did not see the game, so I cannot comment on any specific calls.
What I will say, is that anybody suggesting that the officials were "trying to dictate the game", or "show off to Gary Bettman" are out of their minds.
Officials in the NHL do not try to decide who wins the game. Bottom line.
Also, the NHL officials have no reason to impress Gary Bettman. He has little, if no control over who has zebra jobs in the NHL. Andy van Hellemond handles that.
