The New York Rangers carried high hopes into their second-round showdown, but Game 1 brought more than just a lead, it also brought frustration. Leading 3-1 against the Carolina Hurricanes, the game wasn't without its controversies. Rangers rookie Matt Rempe was slapped with a goaltender interference penalty that raised eyebrows.

It appeared Hurricanes captain Jordan Staal had nudged Rempe into his own goalie, sparking outrage from Rangers coach Peter Laviolette and a chorus of boos from the fans.

Peter Laviolette's displeasure was palpable. His frustration echoed across social media, with one tweet capturing the sentiment:
«Peter Laviolette hasn't loved the officiating so far»

That makes two of us, Peter. #NYR

This postseason has been marred by questionable calls, agitating fans and teams alike. Despite holding a two-goal cushion with a period to play, and potentially securing a 1-0 series lead, the inconsistent officiating has been a sore point. Laviolette's frustration is justified, and fans are hoping for a turnaround in officiating quality as the playoffs continue.
