When it’s overtime in the playoffs, and you’re talking about balancing out bullshit penalties…
The one at ninety minutes is a gut-punch.
But the one at a hundred and ten is a rifle bullet.
Sad thing is, this was the most exciting playoff game I’d seen so far this year. And what an amazing story!
I blame Bettman for its anticlimactic ending. Oh, well…at least it was a tie game to begin with. So many times this year I saw good late third-period rallies squelched by marginal calls, I sometimes wondered why I was bothering to watch at all.
In a word: bogus.
