Make The Right Calls

The first couple games of the playoffs have always been interesting from the "how will the game be called" prospective.

Usually these games are called really tight, most every infraction is called as the NHL tries to establish the rules of the game.

But then as the series continue, the calls suddenly are not being made.

For once, I would like to see a game 1 called just like a game 7 would be.

Players ask for consistency then adjust accordingly and hopefully this can be the case this post-season.

That consistency will never happen.  As the series goes on the officials get the mentality that they don’t want to be the deciding factor on who wins or looses.  Game 7 should be called like game 1 but it won’t.
