I know that's how it USED to be...but with bettman thought they changed it...
Sensarmy, the same sort of thing happend Saturday in the Carolina/Philly game, A hurricane was pushed into the goalie and they called the Cane's player for goalie interference. Eric Staal went ballistic over the call.
I understand the goalie interference, but the Refs need to understand what the heck the crease is, and how it's not interference if the opposing team pushes a player into their own goalie.
If they are going to call it like this, then with a scramble in front of the net the players need to just start pushing the offensive team into their own goalie to waive off any potential score against them and it also puts them on the PP.
First they don't call something then they go overboard on the calls, Someone needs to get the refs act together.
this one was worse. silfverberg wasn't pushed into price. he had his back turned to the goalie, and the goalie pushed him. it was, other than that BRUTAL call in teh det/stl game for the head shot, the worst call i've seen all season. i'd post a clip from youtube so you could see it, but i can't access youtube from my work computer.
the leauge needs to put in a review on all scoring plays, no matter what, similar to the NFL. the sens got screwed out of atleast 1 point yesterday, and in a 48 game season, that COULD be a make or break point. i'm sick of refs deciding games, it's getting ridiculous.
the sens have had the worst or 2nd worst PP to PK ratio.Given the roster last year this was predictable going into the year. Full of young players that don't know how to position in a way to draw more penalties and a bunch of abrasive types (Neil, Foligno, Smith, and Carkner for example) and idiots like Konopka that have a history of taking lots of penalties for lots of reasons. That ratio falls on the gm more than the players or coaches, and I think they knew it before the year began. Once there are fewer shifts given to those types and once the younger players are a little more experienced, you'll see a drastic shift in that ratio.
man, your homerism is gettting worse dude, you should see a doctor.lol!
