Eddie O Please stop!

Man Eddie O has to stop with the Crosby this the Crosby that, Right after 87 leaned into Tutin and Tutin PUSHED him over Eddie O was there to defend Slid the kid. "and there was the hold" said EddieO. a clear push on his sholder and he went down, but since when is this a penalty?? " Listen every player dives at some point, some do it more then others" he said then he went on to say he didnt flop? Why do the defend him so much? It would have been great to see him say "wow, he called a hold on that? he was shoved down while he had the puck, Bad call."

NBC = Nothing but Crosby. AO is 2X the player this guy is and NBC better get it right by touting him just as much if not more then Slid.

First off I do agree that they talk and defend him so much. But bringing AO into this is stupid. HE ISN'T PLAYING. And Sid gets ratings.

P.S. I'm not trying to be a troll i just saw this up in the recently added threads box.

In other news, you arent supposed to use your free hand to grab someone and knock them over.

I honestly thought it was a good check, not a penalty. But whatever...

Can we stop with this? We knew before coming into this series that calls will go Crosby's way all game long, that's just the way it is. Last series calls went mostly the Devils' way, ridiculously in parts, and the Rangers prevailed.

Reffing shouldn't be an excuse, this team is good enough to beat the Penguins if they play their best hockey. So far they haven't done that, game 2 was close, but not close enough.

I fully believe that with or without Crosby getting calls, the Rangers will be able to tie this series up in NY.

Now game 2 is over, let's please focus on game 3.

First, there was no way that the Penguins could have let him coach the team for much longer given the personnel they had and considering the standings (they were dead last at the time he was fired IIRC).

Second, He's not that bad as an analyst, but I can't stand him when NBC broadcasts a Penguins game, because he is obviously biased ... and that is a god-awful thing on a national broadcast. He permanently gives wrong stats concerning players/things when talking about his time there. And he surely doesn't say certain things that he should say as an analyst...so, if you have a chance to watch the game not on NBC, but on a different channel, do it.

Guys, Tyutin's penalty was legit... Crosby was smart in leaning his weight against Toots in the corner, but he took his hand off of his stick and leaned on Sid's shoulder, ultimately pushing him down.

While I also feel that the officiating has been slanted against the Rangers for years, this call is not even near the top 100 of botched/bad calls against us since the lockout ended. The Rangers need to give an honest, hard-working effort for 60 minutes in order to win against the Pens in this series. Today was 10X better than Friday, but being at the Garden on Tuesday/Thursday will help. LET'S GO RANGERS!!!

Pens fan's take here. That play has been called a penalty all year. That being said, I don't agree that it should be called a penalty. I think it should be called good defense. But yeah, it has been a penalty all year. So I guess you have to take it for what it is. At least most reasonable people aren't complaining that it's a dive. Tyutin's a big strong dude.

Reffing in any sport is going to be incosistent at the best of times; there are always weak calls and non-calls in games both ways. There is no objective force that can automatically determine what every single penalty is, especially in hockey, where the rules are very subjective.

i would have no problem with the call if it was called the same way for both teams and called consistently, which clearly isn't the case.

This would be my 100th post of the day about how bad the offciating in the league is so instead let me just sum it up with a list..

1) Thats not a penalty, its good hockey
2) Based on the officiating in the league it could happen to them in the garden next game
3) I've said it before and I'll say it again, if it was one of our guys getting those calls i'd be all for it (until the league found some consistency) there will always be some bad calls, but enough already, multiple ones per game should be unacceptable.
4) I worry that the best player in hockey's reputation is being damaged and not necessarily through his own actions, fans all over the league hate him because they believe he gets preferential treatment, which sometimes it seems he does, and truth be told thats why i cant stand him
5) They do need to wake up and let the announcers on national broadcasts know they are broadcasting for all fans, i start to hate Crosby even more when two guys enter the faceoff circle, yet the call is "Sidney Cosby gets set for the face-off" as if he's taking it alone!!!!!

Eddie O's "Crosby isn't a diver" quote was one of the more humorous things I've seen on television this calendar year.

No offense man, but we actually had more PP's today then they did so IDK What your talking about as far as Crosby diving. Even when he dives we still had more PP's then they did...

I have to say, so I don't find much worth in whining at the inevitable, that was indeed one hilarious quote. Almost as funny as Stan claiming Jagr ran Brodeur with a knee to the head, and Joe calling him on it.

I didn't realize Crosby was so weak on his skates. I have a new found respect for him. Its tough making in the NHL when you have the strength of a prepubescent girl.

What actually makes it worse for Crosby is that the networks have gone out of their way and over the top in an attempt to show how it's definitely a penalty. It makes it seem even more like a snow job.
