I can see an argument for something against Penner, but the ref determined that it was incidental contact and nothing was gained from the contact.

The Cleary play that the team and coach complained about is just grasping at straws. I wonder if the coach changed his tune after seeing the replay on the clear shoulder check.

As long as the King keeping winning in regulation, they won't have to worry about any crazy tie breakers.
I'm not trying to harp on them too much, but Wings fans seem to be worse than most when it comes to complaining about penalties actually losing the game for them. They hardly ever credit the other team. It's very strange coming from a team that throws picks like its' going out of style. I mean, there were so many times last night where, instead of stationing a guy in front of the net during a breakout, Kronwall or another d would stand BESIDE the net with their back turned to sort of extend the net into a wall and hold up a forechecker. For the record, I thought the reffing was baffling; very long periods where they'd bury the whistle punctuated by short bursts of odd penalties.

I'm glad the telecast pointed out that Babcock was trying to calm his team down after Clearly lost his **** for no reason. Unfortunately, much like PHX in the playoffs, we scored while they were tightening their belts
