And according to the Athletic Sports website, on Wednesday, many observers expect the duo of officials to oversee the second consecutive meeting in this series. The two men were stationed Tuesday at the T-Mobile Arena for the duel, which the Habs won 4-for-1. The evening was not particularly lively in terms of penalties: each club was penalized twice.
Previously, the work of Chris Lee and Dan O’Rourke in Duels 3 and 4 in Montreal was widely criticized. They chose to turn a blind eye to several gestures, including a raised wand on Corey Berry’s face during overtime in Game 3.
The first and second confrontations took place in Las Vegas under the supervision of referees Francis Sharon and Gord Dwyer.
