from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,
But there was another guy Paddock thought had a brutal game, too. A guy in a different jersey. With stripes. Paddock didn’t call him out completely, but he sure did narrow the choices.
“I thought guys like (Christoph) Schubert and (Chris) Neil did a good job again, I thought they were finishing checks,” said Paddock. “I thought Chris Neil got one penalty in the first period probably because it was the third time he tried to hit somebody through the boards. That’s just disgusting by the referee. You’re supposed to hit them through the boards.”
The Senators went through the boards often—right into the box. The Senators were short-handed nine times against the Islanders and killed all but two of the penalties. They were awarded just three power plays of their own and converted one.
Afterward, Paddock claimed he was in “shock of how the game was officiated.” His opinion came on the heels of Steve Yzerman’s comments Saturday about inconsistent work by the men with whistles.
