I have bitched about it before in the game threads, but felt like posting it as its own thing.
Obviously as devils fans we are biased, and see most of the calls in our favor. But these offsides this series have been so ridiculous I literally can't believe some of them.
The one that really irked me is last game, a king was about 4-5 feet into our zone before the puck came in. It was one of the worst offsides I've seen allowed. This is the sequence that resulted in the icing -> volch hurt -> salvador in and high stick -> kings pp The whole thing would never have happened given the refs calling the blatant offsides.
Is anyone else seeing a tremendous amount of kings offside as well that the refs just don't call. Or am I seeing things.
Meanwhile, we seem to get called on offsides if we are a hair offsides.
We seemed pretty evenly matched tonight if you ask me, they just buried their chance at the end, and we didn't bury ours with the kova-henrique-poni scramble near their net in OT. The devils didn't have their legs in the early goings of the game, I don't expect that to happen again. And when we got our game going, they were struggling to deal with us. I expect us to come out flying next game, just like most games this playoffs. If we win, is another story, this is the most evenly matched we've been all playoffs.
