Videos- Craig Berube And Rod Brind’Amour With The Post-Game Theme

The St Louis Blues are down 3-0 in their series with the Colorado Avalanche after a 5-1 loss Friday night.  Craig Berube wasn't happy.

via Lou Korac tweets,

Berube went off on the officials tonight. First, on the Schenn no call: Yeah, he broke his stick, should be a penalty."

Berube on officials: "Like the refereeing every game, we get one or two calls. It's usually late in the third period. They're getting four a game, five, how many did they get tonight, five? I mean, it's not that lopsided. I'm not sure why. We don't get the calls that we deserve.

More Berube: "Parayko gets tripped in the corner, they go down, score a goal on the goalie challenged goal. He gets tripped in the corner, slew-footed and they don't call it, okay, and it cost us a goal. It's terrible. It's so one-sided, it's not even funny."

Why is the officiating so one-sided? Berube: "I don't know, you'll have to ask the referees or the league. I don't have an answer for that."

Rod Brind’Amour is in the same boat.

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer,

“We played our butts off,” Brind’Amour said. “We played great. We played hard. We’re playing a great team. I didn’t say it (to the team) but we’re in a battle. Nashville’s a phenomenal team but we’re also fighting the refs, plain and simple. You can’t tell me two games in a row, we get seven, eight penalties and they get three when the game’s this even? That’s not right. It’s not right.

“I give my guys tons of credit for sticking and going and playing their butts off. We still had a chance to win, coming back. It’s not right. Two overtimes, a knick-knack penalty when there’s stuff going on all over? Just flipped the momentum and they score the next shift after because we’re out of rotation. That’s not how it should go.”

Ahem. It’s called “game management.” wink Maybe talk to Tim Peel……
