That's on the refs.
Pierre mentioned the knee on Jokinen and the ensuing scrum were a result of how "well" the refs were doing. Unintentionally couldn't have been more correct.
That's not what Peeair meant, he said that the calls they made were a sign of them doing a good job. But, they had easy calls to make in the last 4 minutes of Islanders taking runs at Cooke and Morrow. It was apparent that was what the Isles were doing, and the refs let it go until they succeeded in an injury. Should have put the Isles down a man earlier and controlled the game. The refs let it get out of hand. That is poor reffing.
Read the bolded part again. You just echoed exactly what I was saying. Pierre said it was an indication of how "well" the refs were doing. I was saying that he meant they actually doing a good job, which they clearly weren't, but works the other way as well.
In other words, I was saying that Pierre meant the scrum/cheap shot was a result of the refs performance, but not in the way he meant it.
