“There’s no question (the Red Wings) wield the influence over the series. I’m not saying we didn’t deserve a number of those penalties but there were a number that shouldn’t have been called.”
– Edmonton Oilers head coach Craig MacTavish, in his otherwise pretty reasonable comments on the awful officiating in Game 4.
Oh, for crying out loud, MacTavish, it’s not a conspiracy. It’s going both ways and sucks for both teams. And your boys will have to fight through it just as Babcock’s will.
