Last Word On The Officials In Game 1

Greg at Deadspin posted this photo today:

That's David Jones getting the crap cross-checked out of him by Martin Skoula, you know, right before the refs waved off the goal because Jones' foot touched it.  Well, I checked the NHL rule book and sure enough, cross-checking is illegal.  Skoula was not called for a penalty.

Again, I know it's lame to bellyache about poor officiating, but this crap is pretty ridiculous.  Seriously, if it's this bad again in game 2, I just might have to do something about it.  Which means I'll probably just shake my fist at the television and cuss a lot, but I swear I'll do it real hard!

UPDATE: Looks like bad karma has a quick turnaround.
