I certainly don't blame the loss on the officiating...The Habs lost in the end because
A- They didn't score that crucial 3rd goal which would of buried the Sens (repeat of game 1)
B - Because they couldn't keep a lead
However, saying the officiating wasn't a factor in how the game played out is not being realistic. Of course, that's not the Sens problem, they did what they had to do to win and full marks to them.
But it's difficult to win in those circumstances for the Habs...you expect to get at least ONE of those 50/50 calls
The officiating was not NHL quality last night...doesn't discredit what the Sens did though.
