I won't comment on the actual penalty (except to say it seemed a weakish call), but are you saying the refs should take pity on the Sens?
I'm simply going by what Galley said at the 12 minutes mark of the 3rd when he said no penalties should be called when the game is this close. I know the statement is inherently wrong, I'm not agreeing with his sentiment however, I thought to myself "what about the Phillips weak call in NJ in OT?" and then tonight we arguably got another weak call with 1:45 left to play.
The Sens are in the midst of a make it or break it point of the season. If the refs make marginal calls at these stages of the game, then it adds insult to injury. But again, I'm not blaming the refs for either outcome, just use your judgment at that stage of the game. If the penalty is bad enough to warrant the call, do it. If it isn't, don't call it. And this should go for any team.
At 3-0, Buffalo probably expected us to roll over and die. A couple of goals later, they started to take the game seriously and that was all she wrote.
They could have been playing 'til 6Am tomorrow morning, Ottawa wasn't scoring again.
Well, we pretty much dominated the second part of the game.. Too bad, we came up short again, but that's what happens when you don't play 60 mins. I think i didn't see this team play 60 mins for a long time (since they beat the Rangers, the Pens,...)
I did! I was actually laughing when I saw it happen in the arena. Peters hopping up and down on the ice like an idiot makes it tougher to rush to his defense, but you've gotta give it to Ruutu; if his plan was to shift momentum, he certainly did it. I honestly sat down in the third expecting the Sabres would lose.
