Poor Calgary

Wow….I think I’ve had enough of this fear of overturning what the ref on the ice saw. Get the call right!!

Last week we saw the NHL make one of the worst calls at one of the most important times in a game between Calgary and Anaheim (start at 1:00 mark), this week the Flames are getting screwed in a game that they’re not even involved in.

Again, the best view comes at the 1:00 mark. I don’t get how this decision was not overturned by the league office. First of all, there is zero evidence showing that Hossa even touched the puck with his stick, which would it have happened, would negate the kicking motion. Secondly, there is zero evidence that the puck even crosses the line in this situation.

The Hawks were down 0-2 at that point, but rallied around this marker on route to a 4-3 OT win. That, combined with Anaheim’s big win over San Jose officially eliminated Calgary from playoff contention.

  1. Exactly. They need to start getting calls right but I think the ones that need to be fixing the call are not the fat cats in the Toronto war room. It’s ridiculous that guys who care about ratings and marketing for the league are also making crucial decisions for playoff implications etc. I wish they would do something about this because this is hurting the league more than it is helping it right now. Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I’d love to hear what you have to say.
