You will not believe this, but there was a lot of controversy in the NHL playoffs tonight. In the extra time of Game 3 between the Sharks and the Blues, Erik Karlsson scored the winner, his second goal of the game, to give San Jose a 2-1 lead in the series. The 5-4 victory for the Sharks was not politely received by the San Luis crowd, however, because Timo Meier's assistance that led to Karlsson's goal certainly seems to have been whistled for a hand pass.
For those who are not very well versed in NHL Rule 79, a player can not hit the puck with his hand to a teammate, or "(allow his team to gain an advantage" with a hand pass) , so I'm sure it seems that the work should have been removed as soon as Gus Nyquist touched the puck, I can not even keep track of exactly what can be reviewed and what is not, but apparently , this can not be verified by the officials, that's an incredibly difficult break for the Blues, who led at the end of this game until Logan Couture matched with one minute remaining in the regulation.. And it's an even worse turn of events for your batons.
Somewhere, in a dirty bar with dim light and $ 1 Buds in the fridge, Jonathan Marchessault and Gabriel Landeskog are shaking their heads in sympathy.
