If the officiating in the playoffs is anything like it was for last night's Sens vs. Penguins game, the Senators are doomed.
Talk about inconsistency. Yes, there were a few things that should have been called against the Senatorss, but there were more than should have been called against the Penguins. (i.e. Crosby's dive, Roberts' cross-checking Corvo from behind into the glass during the overtime period) Then there were things that shouldn't have been called (i.e. Volchenkov's push into Flury, resulting in an interference penalty, and a goal for the Pens)
It's frustrating as hell to watch.
I understand that the game looks different down on the ice, but you would think that it would balance itself out. It didn't.
I hate the Leafs and I love nothing more than to watch them lose, but I've seen similar officiating go against them in games as well.
I know the Senators can beat the Penguins, but the playing ground has to be balanced for that to happen. None of these BS calls and non-calls.
