With 3:05 to go on the first Karlsson sends a stretch pass up the middle. Send player tips it at the other blue line, it goes up in the air toward the goal and the goalie shags it. Face-off goes back in the Sens end. Why?
It wasn't because the goalie caught it while standing in his crease. I suspect it was offside. But don't tell me a tip just inside the blue line from a forward trying to reach a breakaway pass is intentional offside. And the puck was low so it wasn't a high stick tip, either.
I think it was the wrong call.
On another play there was a shot from the left circle and Condon came out to cut the angle, blocked the shot and covered the rebound. Yet the face-off went to the right face-off circle. Getzlaf took it on his strong side and won it. If the shot comes from the left and is frozen at the top left of the crease, why does the face-off go to the right?
Blown call. I remember it and they messed that up
Bu the weird part is the camera showed Carlyle on the bench and he was very animated in signalling that the faceoff should go back to the Sens end. Refs agreed. Just not sure why.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
