The refs sucked, but Habs didn't really deserve to win. They played like crap. Preds are a fast, tough forechecking team that can't score. We're going to have tough times against teams that do that and can score.
Team wasn't good and couldn't overcome the absolutely disgusting display of incompetence from the ref. From embezzlement to reversing plays on the ice based on inconclusive evidence to uncalled headshots without the puck... a good evening of work from these two buffoons.
The team was awful. Outside of Eller, Gallagher, Galchenyuk, Bournival and Price, everyone else was atrocious.
I don't understand Therrien's coaching decisions at times.
It's good they loss in a way, hopefully the coaches will wake up. The habs were awful on the road trip and only on in Vancouver and Winnipeg because of the goalkeeper. Price tonight was the only reason the score was close. Embarrassing game.
Therrien deserves part of the blame, but remember he finished the game down two players (Briere and Prust). Tough to win the game when the refs refuse to call head shots and interference (I counted at least a dozen picks tonight, including one on Gionta during the Seth Jones goal) but will call just about anything when a Predator flops to the ice.
rule you need proof to reverse a call on a good goal..rooney pointed good goal..then when no proof was found to reverse the desiscion from toronto the 4 judge decided to reverse the goal..the same ref who was behind the net and pointed good goal ...while the other 3 where all 45 feet aways from the net...
