Today's the one day where you put the blame almost squarely on a third party who has way too much influence in deciding games.
I just have no idea what game you were watching if you think reffing was the reason we lost. We got out-skated, out-hit, out-forechecked all afternoon.
The reffing was bad, but the Pens were even worse. This was reminiscent of that 4-1 loss to the Islanders. The team had no jump or energy.
Saying we lost because of the reffing is a crappy excuse for a bad effort by the team. I hope Bylsma and the Pens aren't using it as one because they will lose tomorrow as well if they bring the same effort against the Devils.
