I’m not a big fan of stories that focus on one-sided officiating, but that was clearly a predominant topic in the Rangers locker room after the game. And that included Tom Renney, who made the rare concession that he probably needs to be more active in complaining to officials.
“Maybe I’ve got to be more vocal and try to get a call or two. It seems to work for other teams,” the coach said. “It’s not an easy game to officiate, but it’s disconcerting when others seem to be able to do that.”
It’s true, the Rangers deserved a few more calls, particularly on the slash on Paul Mara. But it’s not like their power play is a sure thing these days. If this was a game they could have won, the loss came with a reason as well.
