Saturday afternoon, the Capitals pulled out a 6-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils, but the game was bizarre. After Tom Wilson sent John Moore to the hospital, officials Marc Joannette and Justin St. Pierre could not put the whistle down, calling 15 minor penalties – 10 of which came against the Capitals. If you add in the two fights, there was a total of 50 penalty minutes doled out.
CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Alan May was blunt about Joannette and St. Pierre’s officiating in his post-game analysis. It sucked.
