Took the game out of their hands? They've had 2 excellent opportunities to equalise since the penalty.

At a fundamental level, how is it any different to not disallowing the Kings goal in game 2? Both were judgement calls that lead to a goal
If this game ended 2-1, then the refs would've stolen the game from Croatia. It's as simple as that.

The refs did take Game 2 from the Rangers, but by the rules of the sports penalties in soccer usually have a bigger impact, which makes bad reffing more unacceptable.
