NHL Game Night: 1-31-12 Capitals at Lightning
Should I feel outraged about the bad refereeing?
TB 4 (OT)
Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the win.
WSH Hendricks (2), (Laich), 16:55
TB Purcell (13), (Downie, Stamkos), 18:50
TB St. Louis (13), (Pyatt, Clark), 1:05
TB Thompson (6), (Moore, Wyman), 10:59
WSH Perrault (8), (unassisted), 13:07
WSH Brouwer (15), (unassisted), 5:53
TB Stamkos (33), (St. Louis, Garon), 2:45
Make no mistake about it, Washington's third goal was a completely blown call. The holding on Matt Gilroy that led to Brouwer's unassisted goal was a joke. I'd be more outraged were it not for the craft Russian leg sweep Vincent Lecavalier put on Roman Hamrlik to spring Marty for the Lightning's second goal. Still, for the refs to blow that call it plain view was pretty shocking.
Brett Connolly was -1 with 1 hit in 5:08.
J.T. Wyman had an assist and 3 shots and 1 hit in 13:00. Played very well coming off the shelf.
