Wow, no penalty shot! Biggest thing of the night. Detroit got away with one on that when Zetterberg closed his hand on the puck in the crease. And no call!!! It still amazes me how the refs rarely call that.
Biggest complaint for me.....SOMEONE SUSPEND KRONWALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why, why, why, why, why has this guy not been suspended. Keep your skates on the ice when you throw a hit. Every other player in the league can do that, but Kronwall was apparently sick on that day of hockey school. Even the annoucers call it everytime. Flashback to conference finals.....look at what happened to Havlat. And this has been the trend for the past few seasons. Not only in post, but regular. Sooner or later that guy is gonna get hit in the same way, and he deserves it.
Now this is not only a vent against the Red Wings here. The Pens definately got away with a few of their own. Even I'll admit that....but the difference is that what the Pens do in the game is stuff that's actually supposed to happen and it does happen in every game. What Detroit does is not supposed to happen and they get away with it a lot. And people wonder why there is message sending, retaliation, and hits to the head...its reasons like these, but most importantly its the fact that they get away with it.
What are your thoughts?
