NHL PLAYOFFS |OT| PUCK THE PAIN AWAY

Honestly not sure how more Blues players / coaches didn’t lose their shit. Take the fine and give it to the refs. People complain about reviewing, but I’d rather that, than seeing a loss like this on such a brutal call.

That's the kind of loss that steals your soul...wouldn't shock me if the Sharks win it in 5, hope I'm wrong.

Worried about Binny's spotty play and the D....

Its fucking bullshit that if you even question them, a fucking 25,000 dollar fine is waiting for you. what the fuck?

How is that acceptable

At least Schenn was pissed....how did the rest of the players and esp. Berube not lose their shit?

Hate it when players and coaches take an obvious fucking and just shrug....

I've only seen one angle but it almost looked like to me that it bounced off the Sharks guy's glove instead of him directing it to Karlsson?

Anyone have a good replay?

Edit.. ok watched on NHL.com

He definitely swats at it... But seems to glance off the side of his glove, bounces and lands on Karlsson's stick. Not that the refs are saying this is what happened (officially they just didn't see it I guess), but I think it could be borderline if it were reviewable. The intent was there but I honestly think it sort of luckily hit the side of his glove and went to the right place. It's not super blatant like he picked up they puck and tossed it. Check the 1:00 mark on NHL.com replay.

I don’t know anymore. I’ve been watching close up replays posted on Facebook and it looks like it deflected off bouwmeester’s shin. Just a minor glance, but it seems to changed direction.

With that said, at game speed there is no way to see that minor deflection and I’m still surprised the refs didn’t call the play dead.

It could have gone either way. Had the play had been called dead and the blues ended up winning, us sharks fans would be pissed at the refs for missing the deflection.

Educate yourselves:

Rule 79 – Hand Pass
79.1 Hand Pass - A player shall be permitted to stop or “bat” a puck in the air with his open hand, or push it along the ice with his hand, and the play shall not be stopped unless, in the opinion of the on-ice officials, he has directed the puck to a teammate, or has allowed his team to gain an advantage, and subsequently possession and control of the puck is obtained by a player of the offending team, either directly or deflected off any player or official.

Am I wrong or did I see a bunch of “It’s only a problem when it happens to the Leafs” comments when fans and staff were complaining about game 2’s officiating in the Toronto-Boston series? In this thread.

I always thought those comments were annoying. Because I’ve noticed people consistently complaining about bad officiating throughout the entire playoffs in this thread. And I’ve noticed staff from other teams complaining. Marchessault from Vegas was publically pissed off after the first round. Doug Armstrong from the Blues is publically pissed off tonight. Folks - no, it’s not only a problem when it happens to the Leafs. These playoffs are just horribly officiated. We’ve seen Marchand and Chara get away with dirty plays in multiple series. We’ve seen Las Vegas fucked by a bogus major power play in the first round. We’ve seen whatever the heck happened in St Louis earlier tonight (haven’t seen the highlights).

And people in this thread are rightfully calling it out. Staff on NHL teams are rightfully calling it out. The snarky comments when Maple Leafs staff called out the NHL for bullshit officiating seemed way off base.

I would say that whatever Leafs fans and Leafs media feel happened in one game (ie, swallowing of whistles) is not in the same league as calls like this.

Here comes the Leafs fan to make this issue about the leafs

How do we tie this into Marner’s negotiations????

Edit : RIP Holiday, how does he get banned for that while others go unscathed for worst shit?

There's a difference. Officiating is shit but the Leafs only cared when it happened to them.

You need to break this down like I’m 5. Because I don’t get why it could possibly be a problem if the Leafs staff only care when bad officiating happens to them.

Or are you taking about Leafs fans?

For example, when Las Vegas got a bogus major penalty called against them, I saw Marchessault (a Las Vegas player) complaining about it. I didn’t see staff from other NHL teams publically complaining about it...

Even if it was off the side of his glove it’s still a hand pass. He directs the puck with his hand towards a team mate. Team mate gets possession off what he did.

The puck hits his hand. He bats it over to Karlsson. Karlsson gains possession. Therefore it’s a pass from a hand. Hand pass. Lol
 
lmfao if we can't win a Cup getting all these gifts then truly please do move the franchise to Quebec or some shit

Gotta be honest, after years and years of seeing bad bounces and shitty luck just permeate every part of the Sharks playoff lives I will take these terrible calls and I will caress them until the end of time. I will crawl into my dumpster with them and cackle until we get knocked out.

its 100% a pass directed by the hand. Its beyond ridiculous that a single team could have so many late calls go their way in a single playoff year.

I'm talking about fans. For the most part officiating is and has been bullshit and the fanbase didn't blink an eye. Then game 2 happened and suddenly Leafs fans were like "not only is officiating bullshit but the league clearly hates us personally and gives us the least amount of powerplays and why is no one else talking about this." Like yeah, we've all been there. It's just no one has any sympathy for the Leafs specifically and certainly not when they're using half-stories as evidence.

It owns so hard. As a Sharks fan this is a very new experience and I would recommend it to the other 30 teams. Hope you can match these Silicon Valley checks my guy.

Sharks were losing that series either way ;)
