You fail to understand? With all due respect, this is a FOOTBALL COUNTRY. You can put "Hockeytown" in the middle of the ice but people care more about the Lions in this town than they do hockey. And that's just the truth.

Football SUCKS!

In Topic: Malkin hit on Girardi

Looked like, if anything, they could have called charging. Malkin took at least 3 strides before turning around for the hit




42.1 Charging - A minor or major penalty shall be imposed on a player who skates or jumps into, or charges an opponent in any manner.

Charging shall mean the actions of a player who, as a result of distance traveled, shall violently check an opponent in any manner. A “charge” may be the result of a check into the boards, into the goal frame or in open ice.

Just watched the game. The league really need to do something to actually use the video to overturn referee's decision. I just can't believe the glendenning penalty in the first for something that did not even exists, and it lead to the canceling of a goal. Referees were bad during the Holmstrom era, but here this is even worse!!! I'd like to see a coach challenge, like they do in the nfl!... All in all video becomes fairly useless if we can't use it to actually help making the right call on the ice. Sure you can't use it for every penalty, but every time a goal decision is pending, they should automatically use it.


The penalty was enacted before the puck was in the net. Even if the penalty could have been overturned, the goal wouldn't have counted. The play was dead when Miller touched the puck.
