NHL Game Night 11/21: Ranger at Lightning

For the second straight game some dubious officiating leaves the stench of league bias in Lightning land.

NYR-2
TB-1

Johan Holmqvist stopped 27 of 29 shots for the loss.

First, I give credit to Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers defensive discipline. This was a tight game that could've gone either way.

However, someone needs to explain to me the disallowed third period goal. The goal was waived off by the referee on the ice and there was no definitive shot of the puck crossing the line. Of course, the reason why there was no definitive shot of the puck crossing the line was because Brendan Shanahan's glove was closed on top of it.

Now, last I checked, that's a penalty shot. It was one or the other. It was either a goal, or it was penalty shot. Instead, mighty and wise Toronto says no goal and they line it up at center ice. No acknowledgement of the fact Shanahan just broke a major rule to keep the puck out. No penalty shot. So when the Lightning scored with about 16 seconds left in the game, how furious do you think I was? How furious do you think Torts is going to be when he sees the tape? The league's a joke, a total, absolute joke. This was almost as bad as Chara-gate in Boston last year. Gorilla Monsoon's WWF was more on the up and up than Bettman's NHL is.
