Little time left, tie game, and one team on their third PP in a row? Almost a given that your team is going to get a call against them if you even breathe wrong.
Jaded, in 20 years of watching hockey I have seen something like that maybe happen once or twice where a ref waits until the other team argues him into making a call. THAT does not happen in hockey. It happens in the NFL all the time. THIS is the topic at hand.

You guys got away with picks all game long. You're the last one to be talking about make up calls in the first place.
