Okposo asks for more consistency from referees

Buffalo Sabers captain Kyle Okposo had a lot to say about the referees’ performance during his team’s 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

And for good reason, the decision to give a major penalty and a playing foul to attacker Eric Robinson for having given CH defender Justin Barron a hard time changed the outcome of the match.

Having sanctioned Robinson in this way is not necessarily what upset Okposo. That being said, a similar incident occurred on Friday between the Minnesota Wild and the Edmonton Oilers, when Evander Kane went to check Jonas Brodin from behind.

The Oilers forward was not manhandled by the officials during the sequence, and that’s what bothered the Sabers forward.

“I don’t understand how Evander Kane wasn’t penalized yesterday (Friday) and there’s a five-minute mark on it, it doesn’t make sense,” Okposo told reporters after the match against Tricolor. . It’s the exact same play and there’s an injury in the sequence. I just don’t like consistency. It’s exactly the same game, where there is one with zero penalty minutes and another with five penalty minutes.

As a reminder, Jayden Struble (four against four) and Nick Suzuki took advantage of this penalty to give the Martin St. Louis men the advantage 2-0. The Buffalo club forced overtime, thanks to two goals in the third period, but had to admit defeat in the shootout.
