It's a new rule which is why it seems like they don't call it. They have. I've seen it called 4-5x at least during games I've watched.
Having said that, I'm not sure Pavs touched it with his hand, and if he did, his hand was still on the stick so it's not like he closed his hand on the puck. They showed a replay of it, from the camera that was facing Pavs on ice level. Puck was behind his gloves/stick, but I didn't see if he touched it or where it went.
What I don't get is, they allow hand passes in the defensive zone, but you can't do it off the faceoff? If you're in the d zone, it's a hand pass, nothing more. If you're not in your zone...then it's a hand pass and they call it down. Why assess a penalty? I don't remember which zone they were in, but that's irrelevant, it shouldn't be a penalty.
I didn't see the game, but I had the same thought. The Wings lost because they didn't score. Even if the officiating was poor, LA only scored 2 goals which means we had the chance tp at least get to overtime. 1 goal almost never wins a game.
You really had to watch this game to appreciate the officiating. I was laughing hysterically by the end of the game.
Strange that White is scratched...team was playing good last couple. Glad that Smith is in, but Quincey-Garbage should be the one scratched. I do agree on keeping Lashoff in though. I would even prefer Kindl over Quincey crappy ass. I think my gramma can play better than him... You guys will see him screw everything up tonight on D and Frazickle-Cell will drag down the O....oh Babs, why change things when you are flying high?
Huskins has been better than both Kindl and Q....again, time to question Babs.
Is it a requirement for you to throw a jab at Franzen in every, single, one of your posts? We all understand how you feel about Franzen, but it's getting tiresome reading the same line regurgitated by you every post. He's lazy but scores goals and has the best cap hit on our team. Give it a rest for a while will ya?
See I think Tootoo should have got third man in. Dorsett wasn't even looking at Tootoo and that is a Toots special, remember we all used to complain about those when he was a Pred.
If Tootoo and Wiz were scuffling in a pile and Dorsett sucker punched Tootoo you all would be screaming about how dirty Dorsett is.
BUT because Tootoo has a winged wheel on his chest all is forgotten.
I get that, but I don't personally subscribe to that logic.
So people don't think I am just anti fighter, I have a very similar issue with Mule, he is lazy and can be real cheap and dirty, I feel that way about him now, and I will if he ever wears another jersey (doubtful), regardless if he goes on a 10 game tear and gets 14 or so points, it just furthers my point he could play like that every game, but chooses not to!
It wasn't a sucker punch. Toots grab him in the chest, pushed him back a few feet, then clocked him. He might not have expected him to jump in, but he surely didn't get sucker punched.
Ericcson didn't drop his gloves. I'm not even sure he knew Dorsett dropped his yet. E dropped one glove as a result of Toots jumping in. I think Jordin knocked it off. E didn't need to fight there, we need our D on the ice not the penalty box. Dorsett is just pissed he got rocked by a guy half his size.
