This is why as an organization, you have to figure out why you’re team is getting screwed by the refs three years in a row and fix it. Because eventually, the guys throw their hands up and say fuck it why am I working hard.
Complaining about the refs in a game that is friggin 7-1 is prime SoSH gamethreading.

Maybe it's better to gets utterly embarrassed in this one. A loss is a single loss in the series one his game or a blowout, but maybe now they get angry and find that extra gear

Bruins aren't in this game one bit, but to pretend the officiating didn't have a (quite literally direct) impact on this game around the 2-0, 3-1 marks is pure ignorance

Somehow I don't think they'd have a guy in the game in net that had never played in the NHL before if a few of those first 4 weren't scored

They were in it until the penalty/goal that made it 4-1. After that they quit. Which is another issue but doesn’t gloss over the fact that the officiating never let them play their game.

Kucherov being a punk. If I was Cassidy I’d grab Lauzon and tell him you either end that guys series or you’re getting released tomorrow.

Tampa throwing elbows to the head up 7-1 and Charlie gets Eddie’s indignation? Give me a break

Misconduct for Charlie????? While Kucherov gets nothing??

I like taking the high road, but Bruce let loose. SoSH can get a GoFundMe going.

This is an abomination

These guys have had blue balls for Tampa for a year, and they’re getting their money’s worth tonight.

How many pucks were in the back of the net after those bullshit penalties? Sure they've not played well at all but both can be true.
You’re right, and I certainly wasn’t trying to argue the refs have been good or even adequate. Just that a true contender should be able to deal with a game where the refs suck without completely turtling.

Whatever, it’s one game. As others have said maybe this lights a fire under their ass and they take back momentum in Game 4.

When you have two even teams and officiating this lopsided it swings the game big time.
