Terrible goaltender interference call in the Florida-Nashville game

How is it a terrible call? The puck was under Luongo and the skater coming into contact with him caused him to move, which made the puck go into the goal. Disallowing the goal was the right call.

The skater barely touched him. If there was an intent to blow the whistle, then I guess that would make sense. Goaltender interference is becoming a problem, because any minor contact is considered preventing the goalie from playing his position, which it really isn't. Last night, Luongo had every chance to make that save, even after he was barely touched. The contact certainly did not prevent him from playing his position correctly. The issue isn't about contact, it's about whether or not he could play his position correctly. If a skater is in the crease, preventing a goalie from pushing all the way over to make a save, that's interference. If a player knicks the arm of a goalie, but he has a good chance to make a save, then that's legal. Or at least should be.

Couple reasons: 1. It was called a goal on the ice which means there needs to be indisputable video evidence to overturn. There's nothing on the video that shows Luongo ever had control of the puck or that the contact by Arvidsson caused it to squirt to Forsberg. 2. Similar goals, all season long, have stood up to review. It's not consistent with other rulings this very same season, which gives the impression that the league is making :censored: up as they go along.

Furthering the notion that the NHL is going full speed down the same road the NFL has trying to figure out its own catch rule.

NHL official rule 417.5(a)(2)(b) specifically states "When all else fails make :censored: up as you go along.  Just don't get caught doing so."

The Sabres clinched last place, and tied for their fewest home wins in nearly 50 years of existence. This is starting to feel like Browns-level hopelessness.

Don't worry, the Sabres will have Mittelstadt (:rolleyes:) and Dalhin next year...

Pulling for the Sabres to turn it around soon. As with Toronto and Chicago before them, it's bad for hockey when an important team is this bad for this long.

The Sabres deserve to suck for gutting their team of talented players to form the All-Star Team of Goons as the knee-jerk reaction of the century because no one fought Lucic after he took out Ryan Miller.

Good news: Jackets are in the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time ever!

 

Bad news: We’re probably the 3 seed against Pittsburgh or the second wild card against Boston or Tampa. Neat! :upside:

Where they were in January and February right up to the trade deadline compared to the last month just making the playoffs is an accomplishment. It really is crazy how these 4 bottom teams in the East have had to play to stay in the race. Jackets had to go 13-2 just to clinch. Florida won't die. Lots of respect to the Devils, Flyers, and Panthers. 

 

NOWWITHALLTHATSAID I am going to be rooting for the Nashville Predators come Saturday. I'd rather play anybody else besides Pittsburgh. I like our chances much better against any team except Boston and I don't know any Bruins fans so I'd rather play them as well. Start Korpisalo on saturday. Get some work in for the defensemen that haven't played in a month, give Eric Robinson his NHL debut. TANK THE GAME is what I'm saying. The Devils can have Pittsburgh.

Florida would be in safely if they hadn't given up Smith and Marchessault to protect Alex f-cking Petrovic.
