What if Pittsburgh scored with 6 men?

Hopefully that would be the case, however most people would say the same thing about the Hossa goal scored against the Ducks that was disallowed but something like that is un reviewable, and non calls are as well (such as too many men)

That was a completely different issue. You can't have play continue when the whistle blows. It would be chaos and potentially dangerous to continue play and the players would have to do that because it could count. The thing on counting the whistle blowing when the ref thought of blowing it instead of when he did is lame, but that's a different question of when you measure that the whistle blew. The bottom line is in sports whistle = stop play must be absolute.

The goal would have been allowed. The ruling would have taken into account that none of the Pens players are actually men to begin with.

Thus the too many MEN on the ice rule does not apply to them.

(I'm a die hard Pens fan too btw! Can't believe you guys missed this shot. :D )

All I'm saying is that having 6 men on the ice for over 20s in the SCF is just ridiculous and has much more POTENTIAL to affect the outcome of a series, than the same non-call would have during the regular 82 game season.

If you look at the body of the Wings work the entire game 3 - it's true one cannot just blame that non-call for the loss, that's a cop out. The game was tied going into the third and the Wings only put up 3 SOG. Nonetheless I still think it's egregious to not catch that call - if it was 5s or so you understand. At least with the BJs the 6th man was leaving the ice (although the guy coming on touched the puck). In this case 6 guys were in on the play.

And no I don't want a coach challenge in the NHL, I was just pointing out that a college football team won a national title on a 5th down.... that's far worse than the NHL imo....

It is ridiculous. However, it was simply a bad time for the refs to "miss" that call. I was pissed off just as anyone would be in that situation, but hell, watching the rest of the game the Wings just didn't show up for the rest of the game. That 2-2 tie was facade and made the game seem closer than it was. The Wings if anything deserved to be scored on more for their lack of effort later on. To this point their turnovers and lack of skating weren't costing them as big as they should, but Game 3 was exactly what should happen when they just sit back. And yeah the edit was to a previous post. :lol:

How would it sway anything? The Penguins didn't score. Sure, they should have been penalized, but the Wings also get away with s*** they should be penalized with too, case in point, the video. It also shows that indeed the refs can't ALWAYS spot too many men so yet another strike against the conspiracy s***wagon.

This is how I could argue that it could have swayed the series...

We were up 2-1 when the infraction occurred. Had we gone on the resulting power play and scored, it would have put us up 3-1. Not an insurmountable lead, but powerful nonetheless, especially in a game that could produce a 3-0 series lead. Instead, Detroit got the next penalty and then the Penguins went on to score 3 unanswered goals to win the game, getting solidly back into the series.

There is no way even these refs would allow a 6 on 5 goal to stand.

Didn't something like this happen in the playoffs last year though? I want to say I remember the Penguins scoring on us with a sixth skater on the ice and the goal stood, though I may be mis-remembering (wrong team, regular season instead of playoffs, etc.).

:hysterical: Funny, nice to have fans with a good sense of humor.

Guys, seriously, grow up. They got a 6th guy on the ice for 20 seconds who was a bunk defenseman way out of the play. The play did not result in us surrendering a goal or taking a penalty. It did not impact the outcome of the game. Should it have happened? Absolutely not, but where do you want to go from there.

The Wings' best attribute, more than their skating, checking, or goaltending, is their professionalism. One of the most calming things for me watching a game is to see us give up what could be a backbreaking goal, and the camera pans over to Mike Babock, who is standing there cold as ice, taking a swig of water from a plastic cup. Our fan base should aspire to that same degree of professionalism that our squad demonstrates on the ice, rather than getting into pissing matches over refs being paid off or whatever.

The NHL rulebook states that the goal would be disallowed AND a penalty would be assesed to the offending team. (74.1)

lol yea but the rulebook also states that when the refs see you have too many guys on the ice and you play the puck you get a penalty but apparently the ref actually told the 6th man to get off the ice

One could say that about handfuls of non-calls against the Red Wings that led to Wings goals. Objectivity is key.

Well, from what i remember the Red Wings actually took it a step further and claimed that the Denis Larue was yelling at one of the 6 players on the ice to get off. Not to say that wasnt true, but there has not been any evidence to support it. And the outcome of the game would have been 100% different had a penalty been called on the play, even if we didnt score our powerplay is the best in the league and another 2 minutes in the offensive zone would have increased our momentum.

Goal would count and Crosby would be awarded a penalty shot during which our goalie would have to watch from the penalty box. If Crosby hits the net, it's another goal. If he misses the open net, it's 2 goals.

Now this post had me rolling. Seriously, that's some funny sh*t.
