Ref totally blew it with that penalty shot call. First of all couldn't have been more of a dive by Kunitz, and then the ref takes like 15 seconds to decide on the penalty.

Yeah the officiating better improve or we're gonna have a rough game. It's Crosby-mania and the league is eating it up..:rolleyes:

Why would anybody dive on a breakaway? The call could have gone either way, Zidlicky got the puck and Kunitz's skate at about the same time. The refs do not care about Crosby or any one player.

How does Crosby get out against the Devils 4th line? When the Devils can choose to match lines?

Kunitz would to draw the penalty if he didn't have control the way he wanted. Either way, it was not a warranted penalty shot, the ref totally screwed that up. Zid did nothing to inhibit Kunitz. And the refs might not officially "care" but I'm sure there's marketing pressure from the league to look out for #1 (being a marquee player like Crosby, they're making such a big deal lately about his return, wouldn't it suck if he got another injury...)

Could never get me to believe there isn't some degree of bias in this league. It's all about the marketing teams/players and the money they bring in.

anyway, the call was complete crap, and hopefully we can move on and overcome it

I think this team's biggest problem right now, is they aren't shooting the puck enough. Making it way too easy on the other team's goalies.

He clearly tripped him, the issue is whether or not he was on a clear breakaway and whether or not Zidlicky got the puck first.

The refs do not work for the NHLs marketing department, nor are they under pressure by them to call games a certain way, these are professionals, they're not going to make bad calls on purpose. We've been hearing this conspiracy crap since Crosby's rookie season, it's a load of garbage.
