Mel Ott tries to be the tough guy and turtles against Stewart. Somebody get some tar and feathers.
The reffing is awful, Ott runs around hitting guys without the puck twice(Koivu and another player that escapes me) and they call Kovalev for a nothing call. why don't they just pull on Dallas jerseys.
So what happens with the Koivu penalty in the second? Does it start after the Kovy one ends?
BTW, reffing such as this has happened on a too frequent occasion for the Habs. I do not know if it is the result of officiating or the indiscipline of the players. The answer probably lies somewhere in between.
I'm against violence in hockey and fighting. However, I am ready to forgive a possible 6-0 loss if there is a major all-in brawl where the Habs go breaking some bones. They need this and they don't look like they can win the game (even without the dumb penalties)
