Sunday’s Dump & Chase: The Road Trip Goes Ever Ever On

Nashville Predators 2, Edmonton Oilers 3: Bad Officiating Leads to Bad Results | On the Forecheck
Hot take of the morning: embellishment is a bad thing to have as a penalty. It's not called consistently; it punishes players who are smaller or off-balance; and it gives officials an out by giving them an opportunity to make it 4v4 when they need to call a penalty and don't want to. Also, frankly, sometimes it seems like a player has to embellish to make the refs even notice that someone cross-checked them in the head or yanked their leg out from under them, so maybe if the refs did their jobs better.
