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.
Please. To compare this to the Islanders' game? The Devils spent more time on the forecheck because penalty killers aren't trying to get the puck in the offensive zone and powerplays are. It's that simple.
