I found it funny that Chara got upset about that. It seemed like they did nothing to Chara at all with those hits, but Chara isn't used to get touched at all so it was a big deal in Chara's mind and then he took that penalty.
ever seen some Boston game ?
Chara gets A LOT of abuse, nothing he cant deal with. Thing is, he is used to some kind of reciprocity, takes a lot on his chin but also abuses others, which didnt work yesterday.
On a less serious note: had someone tried to deflower me on a hockey game like Pilhström, I would get upset too
Certainly but that's always been the case with host teams.
I´m sure noone complained last year when we (Slovakia) got some calls going our way, but I still dont like it. I mean, NHL officiating is far better and ppl still complain about it here, cant even imagine what would happen if NHL refs gave home side some sort of advantage, this site would get blown out of proportion.
