Wingels isn't getting a suspension for a late elbow to the head.  The 6 team NHL is going to be great when they get destroyed in their concussion lawsuits.

My god. I just looked that up. That's insane. The reffing has been absolutely terrible all playoffs long, and the DOPS apparently isn't giving anybody any suspensions unless someone dies right now.

Malkin vs. Zach Smith doesn't seem like a very fair match-up.

Malkin vs most players in the league isn't a very fair match-up.

People who think Crosby gets favourable calls needs to watch the last minute of that period. Turris could have probably been called for half a dozen different things and the ref was standing right beside the two of them.

Only if you include the last 99 years worth!

Both these teams suck*.

*Pittsburgh only sucks because somebody named "Brian Dumoulin" is their #1 defenceman

Don't worry. An OTT/NSH final will electrify North America from coast to coast. Even Sourpuss Nik will warm up to it. Break out the vuvuzelas.

This is what I was referring to:

You can see the ref was like 6 feet away from them.

I think the ref might have been more inclined to call it if Crosby was still on the puck/receiving the pass. Playoff reffing is stupid and they're probably getting yelled at regardless of their decision.

The best thing about Ottawa's run here: the easy money that I'm going to make next season by betting the under on their point total.
