Shouldn't the Referees be better at this level?

My take on Monday's game is that during the first period the refs made several early calls to make the game "exciting".  This was a very tightly called period, with both sides getting nitpicked.  And we did have a couple of nice shorthanded chances.

 

IT seemed to me that a completely different set of referees came out for the second period.  These could have been the ones from the Boston series.  Something happens, a call could be made, and you can almost hear them saying "play on boys".  This was pretty evenly not called on both sides.

 

Third period.  Maybe they got a phone call in the first intermission "hey boys, loosen up."  If so this period they got another call.  "Now we didn't mean that much."

 

Completely inconsistent.  Canes seemed slower to adapt.

 

But remember, the Canes always do better when it seems the world is against them. 

I've got the NHL package, and i noticed that no matter who you were watching play the announcers always found several calls that weren't made.   I think early in Sid's carreer, he did spend alot of time whining about calls.  I think he realized how much this hurt him.  I think this is something the Canes have known all along.
