Thank you! CBJ in 5.
The rest, especially the Atlantic, not nearly as smart in some cases.
You do realize that everything in overtime and under a min left is automatically reviewed in Toronto. Since there’s a good chance teams wont have their timeout handy to challenge?
Who cares though if trotz or the nhl called for a review. If the play was offsides would u want the goal to still stand?
Daaaaamn I hear ya. I hope your just as understanding if the call goes against us tomorrow night.
Good non-call imo on that hit/punch by Haula, looked incidental
What is all the hate with these offside calls? In the nfl does anyone say o well he just had half a toe out of bounds it should still count. It was a bang bang play the refs are human. But no his foots out of bounds so it wipes the play off the board
The Caps probably just want to get the annual failure over with right away rather than waiting for the Pens to knock them out again.
The D.O.G. penalty needs to be changed so pucks knocked out from mid-air are not penalized.
Those are not instances when the defender is intentionally throwing the puck out of play to end offensive chances.
I have to ask what is with this defense of the offsides calls?
We got hosed pretty good during the regular season on offsides calls that took points away from the Devils.
Many here aren't too enamored(to be kind) with offsides reviews and all that.
You are probably the only one who doesn't really mind Toronto determining a Playoff game.
And I don't like it that they can do it, Period. Whether it's in regulation or OT.
And Football is Football. I could care less what THEY do.
I only care what is happening in Hockey.
I hate Drew Doughty
Always love seeing this in April.
Last year was the Caps last chance with their current core. They'll likely lose Carlson this summer and their already suspect defense will only get worse.
This Vegas and LA series might by my favorite.
Neither team is beating themselves, really. Two well-coached teams executing. Two goalies doing their best. Our series is brain-dead hockey compared to LA-VGK.
Wow great goal from Karlsson, great play from Smith
This could get interesting
Kings are done. They ain’t coming back from down 3-0 in this one.
Wow LA is going to get swept.
Once again, I'll use this :
The NHL offsides review may be the dumbest thing I've ever seen in all of sports. Taking goals (and sometimes wins) off the board because they spend 5 minutes scrutinizin video at 1/32 speed and 8x zoom to determine that someone's toe was a hair's length over the blueline before the puck. The spirit of the offsides rule is to prevent cherry picking and teams getting too easy of an advantage on offense. I think it's safe to say that someone's skate beating the puck into the zone by 1/16 of an inch provides zero distinguishable advantage to the scoring team.
The NHL loves talking about "the spirit" of the CBA when it comes to randomly punishing a team for cap circumvention, but they take a huge steaming pile of crap on the spirit of the game reviewing offsides in this manner. I'd say it's really disgraceful, but may that's just my opinion.
Dude with all due respect this comes across as petty. There's no league wide agreed upon conspiracy to gift the Penguins the cup. Hell they only had one in Sid's first 8 years before they won these last two. There's plenty to dislike about that team without going full blown tin foil hat. You make it sound like they are just some middling team that mysteriously wins, as opposed to a team that has two of the greatest centers to ever play, and a boat load of other elite / top 6 forwards.
A few other teams may as well.....
People saying the same thing about the Devils right now too..
Unfortunately they are saying we are the most likely
fortunately it doesn’t matter what “they” say
so lets eliminate all reviews then right? call on the ice stands for everything? because if you want to go back to the "old" way all those video reviews being done were being done through toronto and by toronto. so you dont watch any football or root for any football or anything? then i guess that doesn't apply to you
