It's awesome when some fans pretend they play for the team and speak like the players and coaches do:
We have to rise above it. We can't put ourselves in that position. Bla Bla Bla.
The facts are that not only are we on the short end of the stick when it comes to mistakes in officiating, but the MOMENTUM changes they create are often game changing. The timing of the bad calls is something that should be looked in to. Every year 8 to 12 points are lost as a direct result of a decision made by league employees that was a mistake.
Yes we should not be tied 3-3 with Ottawa in the 3rd. But we WERE.
It's sports. We can't have a 10 goal lead every game. Just because we allowed a team to cone back and tie the game doesn't absolve the NHL employees who clearly cost us points.
So keep pretending you're above criticizing the refs because you blame the Isles for not living up to your expectations of their play.
