marleau scores…sharks up 3-2. 3 minutes
Posted in Uncategorized |
Bye Trotz, Horichek, Kariya, Frostbite, Hartnell, Timonen, Hope, Dreams, Success, Money, Happiness. At least we’ll get a better draft pick, oh we traded those for Frostbite my bad. Refs You SUCK!!!!!!
You have got to be kidding me, to blame this one on the refs. Nashville had every opportunity to even things on the power play, from the 4-on-3 to the dubious extra minor to Rivet with under a minute left. The officiating was as incompetent as always, but it was by no stretch of the imagination biased.
(I thought, by the way, that it was excessive to give Nichol a game misconduct. The major penalty for spearing Ehrhoff in the junk was probably enough. OTOH, I don’t know how much discretion referees have with something like that.)
In the NHL, spearing (and making contact) is a 5 minute major penalty (rule 62.1, 62.3) Additionally, any time a major penalty for spearing is assessed, a game misconduct penalty must also be assessed (62.4). Only if a spearing motion is made, but not contact, may a double minor be assessed (62.2).
