Look at my original example.
Cloutier falls down and Orszagh gets a goaltender interference call WT?!?!?
On the ensuing PP, Bertuzzi is called for tripping after doing nothing WT?!?!?
This is a perfect example of evening up the penalties, and frankly it was ridiculous. Why should NHL fans have to put up with the garbage that is NHL officiating. Ratings may be down due to lack of scoring, but if you are a fan, its easy to be put off by the pathetic calls/non-calls that are made each and every game, regardless of the team. Everyone says get "used to it" , but why should we??? Fans have every right to complain when a piss-poor job is done. Its like making a pizza with out the toppings......its a bad product and takes away from the game.
*climbs off soap-box*
Anyways, it was a mighty fine game. Wish we could have nabbed two points, but at least we got a point out of the whole ordeal
Inconsistent officiating has been part of hockey, and sports in general, for over a century. Why worry about it? Just deal with the hand you are dealt. I get sick of this on the 'Nuck board as well. Blaming the refs is just a cop-out (not meaning you).
