The Bruins scored a game winning goal in game five of their first round playoff series against Ottawa! Awesome!
I couldn’t hear the TV. I saw what looked like a goal, I saw the refs up to their nose in replays, I saw the no goal called, and I saw the game continued. I also saw the entire Boston sports radio community completely lose their shit on twitter.
A short time later I saw an Ottawa skater fall on the puck in the goal crease. I might have also seen the same player close his hand on the puck in the goal crease. I also so that no one was given a penalty shot. I guess I was wrong about that particular rule.
I am so incredibly sick of seeing Bruins goals waved off on replays. It has sucked a very large percentage of the fun out of the NHL this year. I am just fed up with it. The replay system in the NHL is insulting and has to go away. It won’t, but it has to.
ADDENDUM: The Bruins won the game in the second overtime. Justice.
