First, let's make something very clear. I am happy for Daniel Briere and Martin Biron tonight. I loved them while they were in Buffalo, and I still love them. They're the type of guys I'm going to follow the rest of their careers, regardless of where they play. Also, kudos to the Flyers in general for coming up big when it mattered most in this pivotal game 4.
Montreal got CHEATED. So, so bad. AND THAT MAKES ME FURIOUS!!!
Once again, as has happened SO MANY times this year, the Referees picked a team and gave them the game in a critical situation. I'm sorry, but YOU NEED TO BE CONSISTENT. If you're not going to make calls, don't make them. Please don't decide a game that could potentially decide a series, especially involving two teams that have worked so hard all year long and deserve better than the referees getting involved in the game.
The final 5 minutes of this game were just disgusting to watch. Literally, they made me sick!
I counted SIX - SIX - SIX - SIX - SIX - SIX infractions on the Flyers in those final moments. A hooking, a spear, a trip, another hooking, an interference, and a slash.
Yet the only call made was on Montreal, and it led to, what do you know, the game winning goal!
Just makes me so upset.
How can you decide a game that critical? Especially after Montreal came back.
Here's hoping they can at least win game 5 to force another game in Philly.
They deserve it.
