Vancouver Canucks Rick Tocchet and Elias Pettersson criticize the NHL’s officiating after a game.

Rick Tocchet and Elias Pettersson of the Vancouver Canucks have criticized the NHL’s officiating after a game. They were noticeably frustrated with the officiating surrounding a penalty call that had gone against them. Tocchet said that he was disappointed with the way the game was called and that it was not consistent. Pettersson also expressed his frustration with the officiating and said that he felt like they were not getting a fair shake.

Elias Pettersson has broken the record.

He has scored in 14 consecutive games. He will surpass Todd Bertuzzi and Petr Nedved to set a new team record for the straightest games with a point with one more point. Moreover, he is four points short of 100. When he does, he will be the sixth member of the Canucks to accomplish the feat, following the Sedin twins, Markus Naslund, Alex Mogilny, Pavel Bure (twice), and Alex Mogilny. Pettersson has come in full force. He is a notable Canadian. He last went without a point against Minnesota on March 2. When the playoff-bound Los Angeles Kings visit the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday, Pettersson will want to make a further dent in the Canucks’ pantheon of scorers.
