Bollocks

I have to be in full agreeance with TD. That was the most poorly called game in the history of professional sports. Giving Vancouver 11 powerplays is bad enough (honestly, giving any team 11 powerplays is questionable), but when you're just pulling our phantom calls for the sake of blowing your whistle, it gets kind of irritating for the fan.

Game 7's are the last game of the season for a team. These are the games in which the teams are playing their hardest, trying to pull out the win. The team who plays the best, who brings the most to the rink on that night, should be the team rewarded with the win. The officiating should be a non-factor. It's like overtime: you have to be a real asshole of a ref to call anything but a complete rape in overtime.

I feel that in this game, the win did not belong to Vancouver. It was not earned on the backs of players such as Luongo, or The Purse ... it was handed to them on a silver platter by an overzealous official.
