How do you know? Nothing I have read reveals which referee it was.
The Buffalo Sabres and the National Hockey League appear ready to move on from Monday night’s incident in Pittsburgh that saw referee Tim Peel allegedly curse at goaltender Ryan Miller during a stoppage early in the second period.
Miller said Peel cursed at him twice after he asked the official a question. Replays showed Peel stopping play two seconds after a faceoff and pointedly talking to Miller in the goal crease. Seven minutes later, an agitated Peel gave Ruff a bench minor for arguing an interference call on Thomas Vanek.
Totally overrated issue. Rivet put it very nicely in TBN today. Two guys playing aainst two teams, and 20,000 fans. Players swear at the refs regularly. Coaches swear at the refs regularly. Maybe Miller doesnt. No biggie.
