Say all you want about the officiating. It sucked. The officials clearly have no professional pride to fall continually for the Sharks worldclass diving.
But here’s the thing. The Wings have to overcome that. They know what the score is. They know what they’re up against. But they’re shooting themselves in the foot with a lack of hustle. They can overcome this crap. They just have to work for it. (and maybe, you know, win a faceoff or two every once and a while)
That taking the bench minor at the end of the game was pathetic. The game in a nutshell: they have a mark they have to hit, but they fall short.
The refereeing in this series has sucked. But it’s time for the Wings to get their heads in it. Or it’s over.
Don’t lose to that gutless, honorless team again, Wings. Overcome.
