The call was warranted. Not a problem there.
I had a issue with the hit on Gionta not getting anything. It was prior to the Bernier and if THAT call was made, maybe the Bernier hit never happens.
Now that doesn't excuse the shitty PK/great PP, but it's a HUGE momentum changer in a championship deciding game.
From there, the Racicot pick on the 4th goal just crushed any hope.
It was unfortunate that the officials played such a prominent role in a game of that magnitude.
I want to make it clear that the Kings may well have won anyway, and I give them all the credit in the world, but the way I feel right now is that it sours the whole experience. I feel like a Bruins fan blaming the refs...
I'm sure you guys would feel the same way if those calls were the other way around. It was just deflating that we didn't get to see the teams actually fight it out.
Doesn't matter now, congrats Kings!
