The conspiracy talk is ridiculous.

Yeah, there were missed penalties that resulted in that 5 minute major being called, but that hit was indeed a penalty. Whether it should've been called a major or not I'm not going to argue, but in almost any circumstance that hit results in a penalty. It sure is incompetence that they missed those other calls, but that's been happening all season, and all playoffs. And the refs didn't "hand the kings 3 goals." The blame for that lies squarely on the devils PK. To allow 3 goals in 5 minutes power play time is absolutely ridiculous. I don't know what the record is for most goals scored on a single 5 minute power play, but I wouldn't be surprised if tonight set or tied the record for that.

And the linesman.. yeah, I'll agree that's one of the most incompetent things I've ever seen an official do, but let's look at the facts here. The devils were ALREADY DOWN 3 - 0 when that happened. Do you really think the linesman decided he's going to get steamrolled by a defenseman to take him out of the play to help the kings get a scoring chance they don't need? At that point in the game the kings were probably already a 99% favorite to win.
