Yeah, the OT call was horrid, and yeah, you simply can't make a call there at that time, especially one that's highly questionable. But you killed that off. Buffalo had the PP negated within 20 seconds on that bad Ehrhoff call, and who's to say the full PP wouldn't have led to a goal and changed the tone completely? (That is in jest, as Buffalo's PP is atrocious, probably wouldnt have scored but you get the point.)
Refs tainted a game that was back and forth, chippy, and could've been even better with more flow and less whistles.
Ya we killed it, but most times no matter how good a PK a team isn't going to kill a 4 on 3, its just insanely hard. Plus even if you do because OT is so short there is very little time after the kill to turn it around and win. Yes it can happen, but odds are it won't thus you get a shootout which I think most would agree win or lose is a damn crapshoot half the time. I didn't like it last year when we won a ton of them and I don't like them now.
Ya the call on Ehrhoff was terrible too, but a bad call at that point in the game is a lot easier to recover from then one in OT, that is all I am saying. Either way you are right as it totally killed the flow of the game. I honestly hated all the PPs we got, felt like with the flow we had we could of won in regulation if we were allowed to play instead of having to stop because of bad calls.
