I knew it was happening pretty much everywhere, but I assumed it couldn’t be as bad as what I was seeing in Bruins-Leafs, then the Bruins-Lightning series.
Guys were kicking out Patrice Bergeron, like, how does it get worse than that?
Well I switch over from Celtics-76ers Monday to watch Game 6 of Penguins-Capitals and what do I see?
Oh I dunno, Sidney Crosby and Evgeny Kuznetsov facing off and the ref PUMP FAKES on a faceoff, then sends Kuznetsov out.
Why, why, why, WHY do these refs feel the need to keep doing this? Drop the damn puck. Stop making this about you and your “power” to start the game back up.
I swear I’ve gotten takeout delivered faster and some of these faceoffs.
People can complain about the bad refereeing all they want this postseason, whatever. If your team loses because of bad refs, well then your team pretty much sucks anyways. Or you’re an idiot. Or both.
But if you want to whine about the refs using stick ‘em on the pucks, you have my full support. Someone with power seriously needs to stop this nonsense so I just enjoy the damn games.
