I would agree with you if the ref only saw the retaliation. That would just be a fact of life. This was not that at all, which is why it's such a horrible display of reffing.
If I had to guess, I would bet that the ref was worried that the Caps were called for too many penalties. Some weak ass, ******** excuse like that.
Boyle's slash was a penalty. I have no problem with that being called without a dive on Riberio.
What I have a problem with, is the Capitals basically being allowed to do anything they wanted after they tied the game. There was some serious ice tiling in the third.
Not saying the Rangers pathetic power play would have scored, but the calls may have slowed the Capitals pressure and allowed the Rangers to claw back into the game.
