NHL  > General NHL  > Caps become the new Pens with all the calls they get.

The Caps are getting all the calls. Now I know what it feels like to be a Pens fan. Not fair, but the league needs them to win. Crosbaby needs to come back so Blowvechkin can get back to being Ovechkin.

Until Crosby returns, OV will be the cash cow.

Last year VS carried Pens 1st round games.

This year it's the Caps.


See the trend here?

Agreed! If Crosby wasn't out it would still be the Pens, but Buttmann needs to make his money some how. Now its the Caps turn to get all the calls and will probably still lose the series.

So far the refs haven't really effected this series one way or the other. The Rangers had 7 powerplays yesterday. I was at the game and that "goal" at the end of the 2nd period went it after the light went on. The clock NBC used apparently had 1/10 of a second left but it was wrong.

Been some great series so far! Can't wait for tonight's slate of games. Go Wings!

The refs do play a huge part though. Nobody can deny that in game 1 of the Rags-Caps series the refs should have blown the play dead before Wsh got their game tying goal, which got them to OT and allowed them to win the game. That was a critical call and one that was not correct.
