Islanders 2, Maple Leafs 1.

I’m going to start off by saying, right now, if I ever meet these officials in a back alley, I’m probably going to go to jail. Holy crap. Okay, now that that’s out of my system. We had two disallowed goals that should have been easy in. One *was* in, but they wouldn’t go for a video review to confirm it. The other was in according to the ice officials, but they went to a video review anyway and called it out. Both were absolutely stupid calls, in my honest opinion. Otherwise it would have been 2, if not 3, to 1 in favour of us–sans overtime. Instead, we ended up in overtime and, uh, where was the goalie? Did he even see the shot that ended it? Inquiring minds are dying to know. Oh well, I got to watch a nifty little Kessel goal that guaranteed us at least a point. That’s gotta count for something. Now, to go find my small army and nail us some on-ice officials. In the meantime, bring on the next one. And this time, can we bring our own officials?

  • Wins: 4
  • Losses: 1
  • Shootout Wins: 0
  • Shootout Losses: 0
  • Points: 9
  1. I didn’t see the whole thing since I was flipping between it, baseball and not being awake, but I did see the first disallowed goal and man, that was brutal! Seriously? NO replay? At least we got a point out of it in spite of everybody’s best efforts.

    1. I’m organizing a small Twitter army to hunt down at least one on-ice official. Wanna come with?

  2. I would, but I’m that guy who doesn’t have Twitter.

    1. Oh, that’s okay. I’m thinking about migrating the call to arms to the blog.

Have an opinion?
