I believe the word has gone out to the refs to make sure the Red Wings do not make it into the Cup finals. Bettman wants certain teams to win the Stanley Cup and he does not want repeaters or dynastys. If we did a statistical study on referrees, there are obvious bias and the way they operate. Refs can call a penalty whenever they want for whatever, there is absolutely no consistency at all. The worst guy to work Wings games are #27 Eric Furlatt, this guy is famous for crafting the outcome. So I think there is a conspiracy against the Red Wings as well.
