Unbelievably bad goal.

Yep, brutal call. Thought for sure no goal. Watch them come back and win now...making the playoffs on a complete gift from the refs.

Can't be worse than that Nashville Hossa call. They should have been eliminated but the refs always got their back.

Not too suprised here... the NHL is all about making money and they want the Hawks in the playoffs to make them more money so expect all calls to go in the Hawks favor in this game and both games against the Wings. I saw in the first period the Hawks had a 1:30 min 5 on 3 Powerplay, and then this terrible call on the Hossa goal... shows us what the NHL wants. Babs might as well rest all the boys in the remaining 2 games because the refs will secretly be wearing Hawks jerseys anyways

Hossa definitely kicked the puck, which hit the post and rolled across the line to the other post, and was swept back by Legace, possibly without the puck ever crossing the line. He might have tapped it with his stick (thus negating the kicking motion), and Sobotka might have touched it as well.

The problem is that the ref on the ice (Good ole' Dan O'Halloran) signaled goal. Which means the War Room would have needed indisputable evidence of two things to overturn the goal. 1 - That the puck conclusively did not cross the line, and 2 - That neither Hossa, Sobotka, Polak or Legace touched the puck after it was kicked by Hossa but before it crossed the line.

The replays that I've seen suggest that no one touched it, and that the puck did not completely cross the line. But there's a difference between suggesting something and proving it.
