The ECHL today released its list of referees and linesmen who will work the Kelly Cup Finals, which open Friday night when the Alaska Aces entertain the Cincinnati Cyclones in Game 1 of the best-of-7 series.
You can find the list here, and thus, presumably, prepare well ahead of time to follow hockey-fan tradition and shower the officials with disdain. Because, you know, conspiracies abound, every official has it in for your favored team, there's no justice in the hockey world and if those damn officials would just get it right, your favored team is so awesome it would probably end this best-of-7 series in just three games.
Remember, just because the officials are obviously intent on screwing your team doesn't mean you are paranoid. Or something like that. Sometimes, it's so hard to keep the dark details of conspiracy straight.
