via email, #NHL has responded to my request for an explanation on Khudobin vs Pettersson penalty shot in last #Canucks game


Basically told him it was a hockey play where in attempting to poke check he inadvertently lost control of his stick. He didn’t throw the stick. That’s a tight interpretation of the rule to ass cover. So they felt they had insufficient evidence to overturn the call on the ice. In other words, had they called it a goal it would have stood.
Bullshit! In hockey you are responsible for your stick at all times.
If you inadvertently slash someone in the face, you are penalized.
If you inadvertently trip someone, you are penalized.
Inadvertently is not an excuse in hockey. I call bullshit.
The NHL is always a joke. One thing for sure is that the NHL is consistently inconsistent with calls.

If he were poke checking, his body would be moving forward and reaching towards the puck. His body is moving backwards and laterally.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Yeah. I could possibly have bought it if the stick touched the puck before leaving the hand, but it doesn't.
He clearly throws the stick at the puck, and it has already left his hand before impact. It's a goal.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!
