is it that, or does the officiating just stink?

I came to the conclusion weeks ago that the Pens have become the doormat of the NHL and will get no respect at all. I was suprised they gave Crosby the call on that high stick last night.

One big difference, did they ignore penalties committed by the Steelers? No, the refs simply called a very tight game against the Seahawks on things that could have been let go and have been let go in past games. I didn't see a single non-call in favor of the Steelers. In the Pens case they aren't calling clear cut penalties like goaltender interference.
