Its the second half of the season, and we all know that while officiating sucks year round, it especially sucks from here till the playoffs are done.  Its the reason goon squads liike the old Anaheim and Calgary teams could make these miraculous pushes for playoff spots after being at the bottom of the standings.  When they are allowed to do whatever they want to other teams, all of the sudden they are unbeatable.  This is how Bettman creates the illusion of parity.

That was a serious mugging. If I were a Habs fan, I’d be livid.

Wow. I don’t know that he was without blame there. He skates through the crease and bumps Montoya twice then got his stick up like a pitchfork, and it looked like highsticked Bogosian. Gallagher skates behind the net and Bogosian gives hims a little shot and Gallagher tries to retaliate. Gallagher then skates INTO to crease and pretty much stays there bumping Montoya. Yeah, Montoya threw a few jabs, and Gallagher stayed between Montoya and the net… Then after Bogosian throws him out of the crease and trips him, another WPG player comes over and confronts him and bumps him and Gallagher goes flying.
Were there things that should have been called and weren’t? Yes. Was Gallagher completely blameless in the whole exchange? Not even a little. Gallagher and Bogosian should have each received roughing penalties. Montoya shouldn’t have gotten anything and didn’t. I think the dude who bumps him later should have gotten an interference penalty and Gallagher should have gotten one for diving.
    IMO this was an example of a pest being a pest and irritating players with stuff that went beyond jockeying for position and getting bent out of shape when no official called a penalty for any of the crap that was going on.

I’m sure Habs fans were pissed. But I kinda actually agree with the results. Either that or Gallagher should have been called for something first. Like the highstick that Bogosian comes around and gives him a shove for. I"m not gonna call it a crosscheck.
