Losing was disappointing ... to me, this even more-so
 

 

The penalty call? Or the complaining about it?

 

Chabot had his stick between Bjorninen's legs, which will normally get called. Bjorninen appears to have fallen after Chabot pulled his stick back, which looks like a dive, at least with the benefit of a video review. But there were other poor calls, or non-calls, in both directions, too.

 

This stuff happens all the time. Even in the NHL playoffs. Referees are human and make mistakes. The downside of the IIHF format is that it's a single-game winner-take-all, so one bad call can decide the winner.
