I was at the game last night and they don't show replays of anything but Sharks highlights. I remember seeing Howard get sticked in the face in the 2nd period, and they called nothing. What was the deal with that? Bad non call?

You should have heard the Sharks fans yelling during the national anthem. It showed very little class and I was embarrassed for them.
I hesitate to call myself a procrastinator.....

High sticking incidents get missed all the time, while difficult to understand coming from a fan's perspective that has the benefit of several replays, I can understand why they tend to get missed in real time.

Watching the Mtl vs. Pit game on Friday night, Crosby took a high stick that went uncalled as well, he ended up leaving the game for several minutes to get stitches.

I wouldn't be surprised if you randomly decided to review tape from any game and ended up finding 2 or 3 high sticks that end up getting missed.

If its the one I'm thinking of I was initially pissed because the Wings had got called on the goalie interference calls that were weak as hell. But I think the replay showed it was Filppula's stick.

Yeah from the replays the Shark's player look to have his stick on the ice, I am pretty sure Howard got hit by a teammates stick. Could be wrong though!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

At the time when I saw it, I thought it was another obvious missed call, but after seeing the replay, it looked like the Shark's player had his stick trapped around Jimmy's abdomen, and it looked like a teammate's stick (I thought it was Stuart) that got him in the face.

I agree with the others. At first I was like WTF, but based off of the one s***ty replay that s***ty Versus showed (Versus blows wild donkey balls) it looked like it may have been friendly fire.

thats being a little kind. he acted like he got shot in the face by dick cheney.
i actually thought he was mocking the sharks a bit by diving so obviously.

speaking of replays, i think versus only showed replays of 2 penalties that were called. they knew there were a lot of bad calls and decided it would be against their better judgement to show them :o

I also noticed that. One of the reasons I hate Versus. Sometimes they don't even tell you what the penalty was, you just have to try to over here the PA system or look it up online. I think they must use their MMA announcers as hockey announcers too or something...

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Mike Leggo is the ref that overruled the closer ref's no-goal call when he thought Ott's shootout attempt was over the line, causing the "inconclusive" video evidence to fall back to a good goal. That's only one regular season game, but I was pretty mad at him.

That was the same game where there were multiple high sticks right in front of the refs, and obvious goaltender interference on the Stars' tying goal.

I wouldnt call it a dive by a long shot because he was hit in the face and probably scared him a little lol (that s***s lowder then it looks in there) so that also caused him to fall back like that but WHATEVER make thef****** CALL ref!!! seriously those calls were bulls***, usually the next day I calm down but these 2 games HAVE BEEN BULLs*** for sure. This past game it wasnt even the calls but thef****** timing that actually made me want to puke. Itsf****** Disgusting and emabarrassing, f*** you Bettman :!:

I share your general anger at the officiating (although this particular event wasn't a missed call), but what the hell does Bettman have to do with this? Incompetent officiating is one thing, league wide conspiracies are quite another. (HINT: The former exists, the latter does not)

It was a Wings stick that hit him.

And boy did Howard sell it. He was like in slow motion when he fell.

As the commissioner, Bettman is at least partially responsible for ensuring the quality of the officials and the integrity of the game.
