    Worst Officiating EVER!!

    I don't think i have ever seen worse officiating in a game. Carcillo kocked out stuart bradely with one punch in a fight. Carcillo was then served a 5 min major for fighting, 2 min minor for instgating, 2 min minor for cross checking, and a 10 min misconduct. This makes no sense to me whatsoever. Just because bradely did not get a hit in and got injured, Carcillo gets served with unnecessary penalties and is ejected.

    Why wasn't bradely charged a 5 min major for fighting? To my knowledge it takes 2 players for a fight to happen. Bradely's gloves were dropped and he was equally involved in the fight.

    Also why the hell was Carcillo charged a cross checking penalty for what happened in the fight? There was no cross check at all. It seems to me the refs were trying to add on whatever they could? How are referee's allowed to add on penalties that aren't even relevant to the play?

    Anyways as a result of all of this mess the capitals recieved a 9 min powerplay. After a min or so of the powerplay the caps score. Afterwards 2 min is taken off the clock and now there is about 6:30 left on the power play. 20 seconds later the caps score another goal. However afterwards no time is taken off of the power play. Can anyone tell me why one of the penalties were not taken away after this PP goal? To my knowledge the 5 min major should have been the first penalty that should have been taken off the board. If not atleast 1 of the 2 minors should have right?.This happens again in the start of the second where the caps score a goal and afterwards no time is taken off of the power play. I would greatly appreciate if anyone can shed some light on this for me?

    Some karma came back towards the refs for their major mess up when one of the refs was dropped to the ice after getting hit in the side of the head with the puck. Rightfully so all Philly fans were cheering when this occured, as so was i. There should be some accountability for these moronic refs, its only a shame he was not injured even more on the play.

    Sorry for the length of this post but im just frustrated and confused over this autrocious officiating. Thanks to anyone that replies and can help me out in clearing things up.
