Most importantly, if this were to happen to their team, they would not accept it, know that the there was no excuse for the reffing, and even the Team would not accept it. THAT'S how strongly the Habs were screwed over yesterday.

Those saying the icings had nothing to do with the outcome clearly haven't watched much hockey where MANY goals are scored after having an icing called against a tired team OR are just trying to make themselves feel good about the Sens win. It was KARLSSON skating in molasses! Hey, what happened to the 'best skater in the NHL'? Huh, apparently, it doesn't apply in circumstances like these.
Exactly. This is an old trick by the NHL: use controversies. Now, a much deeper hate/rivalry between the two teams and fanbases has been established. Montreal fanbase is known to be very emotional. The league exploit that for its purpose and it hopes that the Sens' rather relatively tepid/timid fanbase will now ignite.

Besides, Montreal's market is virtually saturated. Not so with Ottawa's.
