VanHellemond: Admitted the officials had made mistakes

Officiating seems to have coach Mike Keenan a bit upset. The Panthers have been whistled for 17 penalties in their past two games, which is way above average.

"The league office, I think, is very aware of what has gone on," Keenan said. "They can't be completely happy with it."

Andy VanHellemond, the NHL's director of officiating, said he reviewed tape of the games against the Atlanta Thrashers and the Minnesota Wild and admitted the officials had made mistakes.

One came on a slashing call against Bouwmeester vs. the Thrashers; the other was a tripping penalty against Viktor Kozlov in the closing seconds of the Wild game.

"There was some poor positioning, which put the official in a position where he wasn't able to read the whole play," VanHellemond said.

"When you can't see the whole play you make assumptions, and that's bad. That's not refereeing."

VanHellemond said he has cleared up the problems with the officials involved.

The refs have been bad in most games I have seen. Bill McCreary has been below average and Mick McGeough as usual doesn't know where he belongs and calls penalties way out of position.
