ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee says he ``didn't like the refereeing'' in his team's first-round playoff series loss to the New York Rangers.
McPhee said Wednesday the way calls went ``sure didn't feel right.''
The Rangers - the NHL's least-penalized team during the regular season - got 28 power plays in the series, the Capitals 16.
The Capitals lost Game 7 at home 5-0 on Monday night after leading the series 2-0 and 3-2. It's the sixth consecutive year Washington made the playoffs - and the sixth consecutive time it was eliminated in the first or second round.
McPhee indicated he doesn't expect major changes this offseason, saying: ``The team is in real good shape; there's not a lot to do, going forward.''
