  • Notes:
    • Jackson/O’Rourke worked the entire playoffs together (9 games)
    • They officiated Game 7 between the LA Kings and San Jose Sharks
    • Jackson & O’Rourke called Game 2 of this series, awarding 6 power plays to Montreal and 3 to the Bruins.  Montreal scored 2 PPG in a 5-3 loss.
    • They called the Boston bench for an ‘Abusive Language’ unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in that game.  That’s the only bench penalty (aside from Too Many Men) called in the 2014 playoffs.  Hope the refs don’t hold any grudges.  (For the record, they didn’t call another penalty on the Habs after that.  The lone 3rd period penalty in that game was against Boston’s Dougie Hamilton.)
    • Dave Jackson is from Montreal; Dan O’Rourke is from Calgary
