Dallas Avoids Sweep and earns Victory…Refs continue to Frustrate

Posted: 04/06/2013 by yougetoutwhatyouputin in Uncategorized

First and foremost Dallas deserved the victory, they pressured our defense, blocks shots and Lehtonen had a solid performance (the bounces went to Dallas).

We had many chances and failed to capitalize…

“We missed some Grade A chances,” Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. “I mean, Saku missed two or three in the first period, Teemu (Selanne) missed an open net on the power play, and Matthew Lombardi had a breakaway and didn’t score. So there were a lot of plays we missed that were uncharacteristic misses.

“When you don’t take advantage of your chances, it usually ends up biting you in the butt.”

As for the Refs…Glad I didn’t attend this game…The refs were terrible once again…what else is new. They swallow their whistles Wednesday night and made up for it last night, naturally in the opposing teams favor…ridiculous!

    I don’t like fights, BUT when the refs won’t make the calls – when our guys continue to get hit with high sticks – our guys must take matters into their own hands. Thank you Emerson – job well done. I almost never join the Ref You Suck chant – but did so last night. These refs need to take advantage of the laser eye treatments offered to the crowd on the jumbotron.
    Was there – bounces did not go our ways and missed opportunities were frustrating to fans and players. 😦

    Had to settle for the hi-lights U. How do 4 officials manage to miss or ignore so much? Rome tripping Holland on a breakaway might have been called a penalty shot. I have never in now more than 50 years of involvement in hockey at some level, seen such gross incompetence or outright bias.
    Quality officiating is always an issue in sport. What we’re witnessing presently in the NHL, particularly with regard to our Ducks, is a cancer on the game.

    Hey bb and bc, officiating like this would never fly in Toronto…perhaps the most frustrating thing about the issue is the lack of coverage and response from the media (non-socal media) and the NHL. Nothing is more frustrating to paying fans than refs that continue to blow calls and make calls within the last 90 seconds +/- of the game (i.e hooking call on Perry last night and I believe a tripping call on Getz in the 2-1 loss to Detroit).

    This is doing more damage to the game than they (refs/NHL) realize…this needs to be addressed!

      My partner in season tickets (since 1993) will not renew next season – reason given – DONE paying to watch bad or no calls.

      This was at least the 3rd time one of our players was hit in the face with a high stick & an official was right there. There can be no excuse for this – people get hurt. Cogliano lost teeth and Belesky got stiches – neither opponent was penalized.
      Really in what sport is that OK !

    Officiating was one thing, but our poor performance another. The Ducks had some nice moments, but unfortunately there were long stretches of the game when I couldn’t believe that it was the same team which beat Chicago twice. We cannot win too many matches when scoring only one goal. Fasth did not have his best day, but he also made some good saves. We have to play much better against the Kings, or we will be creamed.

      We will be up for the Kings, cz. This team seems to need to be challenged. I don’t like that we tend to let down against weak teams and get up for good ones, but…sometimes we can’t solve hot goalies, sometimes it’s breakdowns and/or not skating. It is what it is.
      Have no doubt. We’ll be up for the Kings.
