So, someone needs to explain this to me, I thought linesman were able to call major high sticking penalties.  Oshie gets a stick near the stomach and he snaps his head back, falls to his knees and grabs his face...absolutely disgusting, I understand embellishment, but absolute faking like that drives me nuts....back on topic, neither ref called anything, but then the linesman convinced them there was a penalty....but only 2 minutes, can that happen?
I'm guessing Oshie is getting fined tomorrow though, not that it will matter.

I thought the same thing. I was under the impression that they could assist in calling a major penalty or even a four minute. I don't recall ever seeing that for a two minute penalty. Interestingly something similar happened last night in the Islanders/lighting game; however the officials blew the play dead on the high stick, but never made a call. The officiating in the playoffs this year has seemed particularly bad.

Bill Burr on Philadelphia...

I was there when this happened. It was an incredible performance by Bill Burr and he won the crowd over.

Watching the passing, and how the Blues pp is set up...Makes the Wings look so ECHL.

Watching some of these other games really shows you how far away Detroit is now.

So much of this loss falls on the coaching staff. I would highly doubt Blashill will be fired, but it may start the clock running on his tenure as coach. One would hope that he wil learn from his mistakes this year and grow from them as a coach. Special teams essentially won this series and this is an area where Detroit looked completely lost. I mentioned this in a previous thread, but even their 5 on 3 set up looked like a train wreck. I don't know how a team goes from a top end PP one year to an absolute dumpster fire the next. Again, that has to fall on the coaching staff. Ericsson bothers me every time I see him on the ice, but he is who he is. Is it his fault he's treated like a number 2 defenseman? Again, that falls on the coaching staff. I'm not at the point of dismissal of Blashill, but he needs to be on a short leash and demonstrate he is able to learn from this.
