Sharks Win Series, Avalanche Have Great Season

The Sharks were the best team this series and it really showed the last three games.
Even though the series was once tied at two games a piece, the turning point was in game two when the Avs were up 5-4 late and lost. If they win that one it puts a lot of pressure on the Sharks.

But the Avs did have a great season. They were picked to finish last in the west and they fought their way into the playoffs. We saw the coming of age of a bunch of young players.

The future looks quite bright for the Avs. I’m looking forward to next season.

NHL Officiating is incompetent

The NHL officials have proven how incompetent tonight by just watching the Avs-Sharks game tonight.
They have called several ticky-tack penalties on the Avs in the first period and nothing on San Jose. One of those penalties gave the Sharks a 2-0 lead.

There were several times where they let Blake get away with holding and a cross check and didn’t call it. Andy got tripped by a Shark, no interference.

It then went over the top with a scrum behind the Sharks net. Mcginn for the Sharks had dropped the gloves and was pounding Duchene in the head.

What do the refs call? An extra minor on the Avs. This is just horrible. Right now, the refs have called 22 penalties on the Avs and only 10 on the Sharks.

I watch a lot of hockey and this series has had the worst refs and I think it is a reflection of the NHL. I think they have it out for the Avs.

I hope it gets better in the 3rd period, but I doubt it. I think this game is out-of-hand.
