Horrible Officiating Cost the Penguins Yesterday's Game

Another Difficult Loss for the Penguins

During last night's game, Kris Letang laid a hit on Alexander Barkov which can be found below.


The ruling on the play was originally a 5 minute major and then was reduced to a 4 minute double minor. The Panthers scored on this powerplay making this call hugely impactful on the outcome of the game.


Barkov left the game, but would return leaving many to question whether he was even hurt.

The Panthers were all over Letang for the rest of what turned to be a very physical matchup.

There have been many questionable calls this season that may have altered games, but how could something like this be fixed?


Looking Forward to Tonight's Game Against the Habs



After losing last night against the Panthers, the Penguins are set to host the Montreal Canadians tonight. Coming off the back to back the Penguins will be eager to get a win against the sputtering Montreal Canadians.

Coming down the stretch it will be crucial for the Penguins to get the full 2 points against weak opponents, so look for them to bring it tonight.

Details to follow.
