Calgary was robbed....and i hate the flames.
Wouldn't it be nice to have an NHL playoffs where the refs didn't play a leading role. That was a 100% bullshit call. He was trying to not smash into the net and it was going in anyway.
Yep. I'm biased due to being a huge Flames fan, but it was a devastating call that isn't backed up by how they usually make those calls. In almost every case, it has to be an undeniable kicking motion causing the puck to enter the net. In this case his other leg was being lifted while he was being pushed towards the crease, so of course his remaining leg is going to stabilize is fall. Additionally, if he hadn't contacted the puck, there were no players capable of preventing the puck from going in all by itself. All 3 of those factors should have made it an easy decision to go with the call on the ice, which was a good goal.
