The calls the Patriots always used to get were never this obvious. No agenda for the NHL though, right?

Went back and re-watched the first penalty. Horquist just fell down. Wasn't even touched by Jarnkrok. Oof.

If it were the Sabres in this game I honestly don't know how I'd react w/ the calls made this period.

The only positive I can draw from watching this is that we now have JBOT, who I believe has his finger prints all over the Pens roster and coaching staff. Let's hope the Sabres can be in this situation sometime soon.

Sure did. I'd be furious if I were a Preds fan (guess I kinda am right now). That goal reversal totally turned the game in the Pens favor. They were being run out of the bldg until that point.

I'm rooting for Nashville, but I won't be upset if Pittsburgh wins. I was rooting for them last year and generally dislike them much less than my other Sabres friends.

I said before it started that I don't care who wins, I just want a great display of hockey and a fairly officiated series.

So far, the "display of hockey" has been putrid with the overturn and now this own goal. The "fair officiating" has been anything but. But that second goal was beautiful. Can't be upset about that one.

Why wouldn't the nhl want a wining franchise in Nashville.... I hate pitt always winning, and I have to admit I'm at work and haven't seen any yet, but is it that blatant.... Or are we just sick of seeing the same winning teams over and over, and may have some anti Pitt glasses?

Preds goal disallowed. Then the Pens were given a full 2-minute 2-man advantage on a phantom first call (Horny simply slipped and fell down). Then Syd blatantly interferes on the 5-on-3, not called because he is Bettman's love child, then Pens first goal ...then total momentum shift.

 

Some bad luck on that late goal.

Goals 2 and 3 were legit.  First Penguins goal was a gimme' from the refs.  Goal taken from Nashville was complete bs.  Still can't believe it was over turned.

Lol, did you hear Keith Jones on the Crosby play? Says it was a continuation play so not a penalty. Any other player in the league a d they get called for that. NHL is pitiful.

I shut the game off after the reversed goal (which seemed blatantly inconclusive). The NHL made it clear to me that the agenda was set. I saw missed calls that could've been made on Pens, but at the moment I figured they were putting the whistles away for the game.

I asked my buddy who is still watching (Pens fan) who claims there was at least one BS call made on Preds, and then a couple blatant missed calls on Pens during the PP.

Glad I'm not watching. Disappointed in the NHL. This isn't WWF.

If there is any doubt, a call is not to be over turned.  His foot was not clearly in the air.

I don't mind the challenge for offsides. If the play is illegal, it should be overturned. This is what replay was intended for.

But that play looked inconclusive at worst.

There was no way anyone watching at home could tell if it was touching the ice or not. For you to say it was "clearly" off the ice is ridiculous.

How about that, now that it's 3-0 the refs decide to start calling penalties on the Pens.

It was clear in the angles I saw. Someone else evidently agreed.
