So, I'm impatient and normally can't wait through commercials, so I flip to other games. While watching the Oilers and Wings tonight, I flip to the Pens and Jackets game and for the 30 seconds I watched, caught the craziest call. Malkin is standing there, one hand on his stick, blade laying on the ice and a Jackets player hacks at him over the arm/stick and breaks his (the Jacket's) stick.....you guessed it, Malkin gets called for slashing.
So, at first I think, crazy, funny....but then I get a bit angry. The ref clearly did not see what happened (I'm assuming, because if he did and made that call, I'd have a bigger problem). So, assuming he didn't see it, what the hell is he doing making a penalty call on a play that he didn't see? I can understand making mistakes when you see something from the wrong angle, etc., but there is no way he could have even seen any bit of it.
