I lost all of my sadness/anger when the linesman took down Volchenkov before the 4th goal. I knew right there it was not meant to be and it just became comical. It became even more comical when the refs gave Carter and Clarkson 10 minute misconducts after roughing minors. The game itself was a joke, the refs treated it like an unimportant regular season game. How can you hand out misconduct penalties just in order to control the game, it's the Stanley Cup! I had more appreciation for this team after it was all over.
My sadness just built up as watched 1 goal, 2 goals, 3 goals scored in a 5 minute 5 on 4... the rest of the game I was just shellshocked... breaking the shutout wasn't any condolence. And with 10mins left... I just wanted the final horn to blow... and I think they did too.
