If anything, especially looking at game 1, koharski favoured the soviets because he was fearful of being tagged a homer.
he was definitely the anti-dombrowski. But, hey, don't let the truth get in the way of a good yarn (or whine).
The sad thing is is Canadian posters that are likely less versed in this series are starting to believe the officiating BS.
The old saying goes that no matter how untrue something is, if you repeat it enough, people will start to believe it.
