Detroit: ‘Let Us Officiate’

The Red Wings sure do hate those obstruction penalties. First Brett Hull was complaining. Now Chris Chelios is.
Detroit has lots of opinions about officiating. You can tell because every time play stops, one of them is off talking to a referee about something. And it’s no secret that Detroit gets a lot less penalties called than most other NHL teams. It’s good that Chelios is getting this off his back now, though. It gives him less to talk about with the refs after the whistle. And time is important with those new fast face-offs.
