Rush lead 2-1

On a 5 on 3 power play goal. Some interesting calls led to it. Jamie Lovell got nailed from behind behind the FW net right before the goal with no call.

Powerplay had better get in gear..and you can't miss on breakaways...

I told myself that I wasn't going to comment on the officiating but after watching what transpired in the 2nd period I must.  After 2 marginal calls against the K's which gave rapid city a 5 on 3, (ridiculous in playoff hockey if you ask me), the ref watched Lovell get blatently cross checked from behind during the PP and then one of our fowards literally tackled behind their net with no call.  Then he whistles a terrible "make up" call against them at the end of the period. 

I am really trying to be objective but after watching this, I am afraid that we are versing the Rush as well as the CHL.  I'm sure that they are going to continue to send us a message about our statements earlier in the year of exploring other league options for our hockey club.  This was also evident in the regular season with the suspension rulings.  1 game for 4 concussions against the K's and then suspending Molle and Henley multiple games for actions that led to the opposing player missing no games. 

Sad when a "professional" league let's their political differences play out on the ice.
