The most controversial bit of officiating may have gone against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 7, but that doesn’t mean that the Detroit Red Wings are too pleased about the way things went, either.
Head coach Mike Babcock noted a significant perceived difference in the way penalties are called in the playoffs vs. regular season, as the Chicago Sun-Times’ Adam Jahns reports.
“If this were the regular season, there’d be a parade to the penalty box for what goes on out there,” Babcock said.
(It’s worth noting that Babcock didn’t blame the lack of calls for Detroit’s loss, by the way.)
