I'm always at a loss as to why O'Halloran gets the amount of respect that he does. Not really though...seniority is literally the only reason. He is as inconsistent and s***ty as all the other NHL refs.
"Foot in the crease"??? Are youf****** kidding me??? If you wanted to say interference, that's one thing... But that is NOT what little 'ol danny boy called there, he called it as just simply having a foot in the crease.
I haven't kept up with all the details of the rule changes, but what Ken and Mick mentioned this period was kind of a slight shocker. (but not really)
So teams will have no timeouts this year. And by that I mean, if you want to retain your "challenge" you have to give up your time out, And being that the NHL has, by FAR the worst, most inconsistent and horrible officiating in all of professional sports, you pretty much have to give up your time out to challenge the potential (but likely) bad or non-calls by the refs.
Undoubtedly the refs unions made sure this was the case. "Don't dare question our authority, or thou shalt be punished"
Oh, man... That goal by Pulks was a BEAUT! Puck slowly came to him and the Pens goalie saw it the whole way and fully squared up to him and Pulks STILL sniped that s*** past him on the far side. Lovely!
Great to see Larks and Lil' Bert score at home in front of their parents and friends too!
