I called you both childish because that's how you've acted in these discussions.
The officiating has been atrocious, just like it is in all of the other major professional sports. But it wasn't why your team lost. That happened because they got outplayed by a better team.
The Blues trailed the Sharks two games to one in the Western Conference Final after they lost Game 3 when Erik Karlsson's game-winning goal in overtime was scored three seconds after an obvious hand pass was ignored by the referees. They responded by outscoring the Sharks 12-2 in sweeping the final three games of the series.
I'm interested to see how the Bruins will respond to the ridiculous non-call that resulted in the eventual game-winning goal being scored against them last night. If they respond like the Blues did then we're in for a treat.
But, either way, both of these teams got screwed by the officials much worse than your team did.
