So I hope that there was no controversy regarding the many powerplays awarded to Magnitka today.
Stop it, please. Foreign teams have played in the KHL since the beginning and only totally biased fans were screaming about one-sided officiating. What's more, last season when Dinamo Riga faced Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod in the play-offs, lots of Torpedo fans complained after every single game they lost about how their team was butchered by the zebras.
