They went upstairs, as they say, to review a puck on the goal line during the Chicago-St. Louis game, and it was ruled a goal.
Look at the replay below and you’ll see it wasn’t a goal at all. It was obvious. There was no one blocking the view, it wasn’t under a pad or player, it was simply a puck that slid along the line without crossing. And not only did the puck not cross the line but it was also kicked.
The “goal” scored by Marian Hossa, began the Hawks’ comeback and in the end the Calgary Flames, even though they had won their own game, were eliminated.
I’m getting very tired with what is going on in the NHL now, with Bettman and his lackeys, poor attendance in non-hockey markets, concussions, suspension issues, and now they can’t even look at a TV screen properly.
If the so-called brain trust decided this was a goal, which obviously wasn’t the case, what does that tell you?
A. They are all blind.
B. They’re idiots.
C. They were getting bad reception.
D. They all wanted Chicago in the playoffs and not Calgary.
E. What else could it be?
