I don't understand how a player can get a boarding penalty when the guy getting hit doesn't even hit the boards. The officiating in this game was utterly terrible for both sides, just like many of the games that have been played this tournament.
The time has come where the IIHF has to seriously examine their rule book and officiating standards. The fools that have been calling these games are beginning to ruin them plain and simple, and its gotten way worse in this tournament IMO compared to tournaments past (although those haven't been anything to be proud about either).
Also, the chinstrap "violations" that were called this game were completely bush league. Actually, that's not even bush league, I'm not sure that something as subjective and absurd as that would be called in a kids league.
