At the most it should have been two two minute penalties. That five minute major totally cost Vegas the game. Sure they tied it up but after that
penalty all momentum had been lost. Which also shouldn't have happened but it's hard to overcome bad calls. Just ask the Saints.
I take issue with the League on a bigger platform on this one....Pavelski had a defining impact on TWO CRITICAL STANLEY CUP GAMES....he and his Club
USED HIS INJURY TO GAIN UNFAIR ADVANTAGES...and it cost Vegas the series IMHO.
I agree a 2 minute for roughing....or crosschecking...or interference....but that's it.
Pavelski should not have been on the ice.....he because of his injured state and its circumstances drew 2 penalties that never should have
In a game 7 it is more than a bad call...it is dereliction...enough checks and balances have been put in place to not have this happening....but it
still happens... anything over 2 minutes should be reviewable.There is no way on review that call stands.
To me a bigger question is why Vegas did not pull Fleury or have some "equipment issue " or something just to slow things down on that huge extended
PP especially after they scored the second one.
I don't find it exciting when the NHL screws the pooch during the Playoffs...to much is at stake....its not acceptable...its on Bettman who is ready
to be moved on IMHO.
In my mind the entire Playoffs are screwed up now...a CHEATING TEAM is in play....a NON-DESERVING TEAM is in play....the Stanley Cup could now be won
by a Team that was eliminated in my eyes....the NHL Officials ruined 2018/2019 IMHO.
That was no fantastic comeback by the Sharks...they were DOMINATED...it was a sickening misjustice....it IS A MISTAKE....it is on the NHL and Bettman
Every massive upset was LEGITIMATE to me until the Knights got jobbed completely.
This was looking to be one of the most exciting unpredictable NHL Playoffs in DECADES.....now it is a #e-show because of blatant Officiating
You think I want to see a REAL CINDERELLA TEAM LOSE NOW TO A TEAM THAT IS A REFEREES PLANT?????....nope sorry....you can have the entire season back
now...all of it...when you piddle in the Punchbowl like that the Party is OVER.
The NHL has had a recent much needed resurgence....the League is pulling away from current managements abilitys in my mind....it has outgrown the
Bettman era....League management has to change AS MUCH AS THE GAME ITSELF HAS....and this has not happened...the Bettman group is now far out of
touch.The game is being held back now by changes Bettman made,things have to be REDACTED...yes....redacted…. we have to replace some of the critical
things Bettman removed from the game...things that were supporting an offensive exciting fast skilled NHL.... this includes fighting and basic rules
his group screwed with.
I am done...with the rant and with the tainted NHL Playoffs.
The Sharks are over-done....its sad watching them....and even worse when you see them elevated by derelict Officiating to ANOTHER PLAYOFF ROUND.I am
pretty sure this is not how Jumbo envisioned his best chance to win a Cup....the wrong way...after an entire career of doing things the right
way....like I said its a sad commentary on how far Bettman will be allowed to drag the NHL before someone 86es him.
Its worse than an embarrassment...it is a travesty.....it is a redflag that it is time for serious change within League management.
