The NHL is always a joke. One thing for sure is that the NHL is consistently inconsistent with calls.Per wrote: ↑Mon Mar 18, 2019 2:11 pmBullshit! In hockey you are responsible for your stick at all times.Hockey Widow wrote: ↑Mon Mar 18, 2019 1:35 pmJeff Paterson
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.
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.
