Agree, Pens need to play smart. We're ahead and the refs are going to call anything close.

After what has been inconsistently called, as a player, I'd bet they're confused as to how to play aggressively or should they tap dance and not finish checks because these officials will cherry pick their calls to benefit one team or another?

Terribly inconsistent.

There was a fight and a lot of chippy play. You knew the refs were looking for something to call and Neal gave them something. Not smart by him.

The right call?! You mean like the hooking/tackling Matt Cooke on the breakaway, that kind of "right call"?

I see your point but... I don't know. How about skating up to Neal and saying 'do that again, it's 5'.

It's all part of the vast anti-Pens conspiracy.

Ugly fight in Philly. Flip it to NBCSN, maybe they'll show a replay.
Tampa player was staggered and falling down and the Flyer got two giant unprotected punches on him when he was down.

As long as it's called both ways, which we know it won't be, so it is a crap call until they demonstrate othrwise. The onus is on the refs.

Yes! I've been trying to use 'onus' all week.

It's not anti-Pens, its anti-competent officiating, and the main reason hockey consistently has tv ratings lower then celebrity tiddly winks.

Because that totally gets the point across to BOTH teams.

Rinaldo the Flyer is a complete dirtball. But, I repeat myself.

St. Louis let Briere know they're not happy about it. He needs to bang a few in to get even.

Not sure if we are allowed to post about other games here, but Rinaldo (Flyers) just knocked a guy out for Tampa. Not sure who he was but he looked very bad.

Cooke wasn't on a breakaway. And missing/making one call doesn't have anything to do with Neal being an idiot. You can't just go around shoving players down from behind near the boards long after the puck is gone. Reverse the situations and have Hamonic shove down Neal and the board would have been up in arms with a no call.

Put me in the same situation as a ref, I absolutely give Neal a deuce there. No warning for that. I give out warnings after scrums, start/end of periods, etc. If I let Neal go there, I may never be able to give him a warning. The warning is the minor penalty.

I know it's not beneficial to us, but it was more Neal being stupid than it being a bad call...

Rinaldo is a freak and he is dangerous. He's worse than Carcillo.
