^^^^^ yeah like that

I have a strong feeling that the OT goal is gonna be some absolute bullshit, like an own goal or a bounce off a stanchion or something

It's infuriating every year. I simply don't get why the standards are different. "Let'm play" simply means "Let'm cheat" and eventually they'll call something where there's been multiple worse events earlier.
They keep saying that "Referes don't want to influence the game", but they are, simply by not making calls they would normally make...and when they then screw up the few calls they do make, well...

Yeah I hate how much of the narrative becomes “the stars took bad penalties” when so much poo poo is uncalled

If they just called it straight teams would have to play right or combat the severe punishment of disadvantage. But instead we get this inconsistent bs

I mean, they did take some awful fuckin penalties in game 2. They lost the game in the first period on penalties alone.

Penalties have been a problem all season, and teams play dirtier in the playoffs with higher stakes and facing the same guys, etc. But the calling goes down.

Players are going to play like this until you start loving enforcing the rules evenly :/

I think they SHOULD call in overtime. Yeah guys are tired and going to make mistakes but the sudden death period is where mistakes are supposed to really hurt. I don’t see a problem, and if refs think the current approach is more neutral then why is everyone on the broadcast team questioning them actively
