Dammit...

How in the ***** is that not a penalty... he was defenseless.

Bruins won again. Clean up that potty mouth.

But the call was consistent. What your asking for is the ref to make a black and white call subjective. In effect, the exact opposite of consistency. My biggest problem with NHL officiating is the subjective nature of refereeing in the playoffs. What was illegal in the regular season is now ok in the playoffs. Refs now in the position to control the game by NOT calling all kinds of shite. Hell, I was screaming at the TV all series because the constant pick plays the Av's were running. Why no penalties? By trying to not have an impact on the game the refs are having the most impact by letting teams cheat. Really done with all the whining of calls made when all the other crap going on effects the game even more but not even mentioned. 

No, i'm saying if the player is inactive for one rule, be consistent and make him inactive for all rules.

 

But i do agree with you on the double standard between reg season and playoffs.  Case in point, tonight's Boston game.  Been a beef of mine since i started watching hockey as a kid.

I feel it puts the refs in a really bad position. In addition to making the correct calls, now they have to make decisions when to call them. The prevailing mentality for years has been "We (the refs) don't want to affect the game" "Let 'em play" 

Well, they are influencing the outcome by letting teams interfere, hold and obstruct or whatever it is. There is a faceoff in my end and the Avs win the draw. Puck goes back to the point and a Shark forward goes out to cover. Landescog cuts him off in the faceoff circle preventing him from defending. Avs Dman scored from the point. More subtle and less obvious than either the Shark offside call or the 5 min major vs Vegas but just as impactful as a goal was allowed when there should have been a call. This has always bothered me.

I still can’t believe that BOTH teams buffalo acquired 1st round picks from are playing against each other in the conference finals (giving them 2 of the last 4 picks in the 1st round). 

 

Thankfully we traded one one of the picks to Anaheim for Montour while it still had that value of the unknown. 

 

Unreal though. If that’s not buffalo luck, I don’t know what is.  lol

O'Reilly is a beast.  Wish we could have players like that.

That steal and score by Mirier SP was sweet, one of the best goals I've seen so far in the playoffs.

Two goals by Buffalo Bills fan Logan Couture! Sharks were on tonight, great win.

Solid game by the Sharks last night. Hopefully Blues can take something from that third period and carry it forward to game 2.

Canes should have put McElhinney back in today.

  Why aren't the gates to each bench both in the neutral zone.

  That was a ridiculous reason to negate a goal.

Walk outside from a 2-0 game for 5 minutes, walk back in and its 2-2... what a wonderful world.

Wow!

 

The Blues have every right to be furious, that looked like a hand pass.

 

I'm thrilled the Sharks came back and won, but the controversial ending feels uneasy.

That was a blatant hand pass. The Sharks must have pics of Bettman and a goat.

Which is why I hate that this non-call takes away from the Sharks persevering and forcing this game into overtime.

 

That is the play that everyone will remember.

Sharks getting some good luck, but I think they are better equipped to beat the Bruins so...

 

It looked like it wasn't an intentional hand pass. He batted it down and tried to make a play on it himself but he didn't. I like these Sharks but I hate that they have been winning with so much controversy.

Intentional has nothing to do with it.
