Dancing in the Reign: Can I Get Another Look? On-Ice Call Persuades Replay Officials In Toronto
Miffed by the decision to disallow Ryan Smyth‘s potential game-tying goal tonight, really. Biased, yeah you are too. I realize it’s no good to harp on it, but the call was clearly factored on the ref’s questionable split-second decision. You look at the replays, no indisputable evidence shown. However, the replay footage heavily foreshadowed an overturned call. You had shots of Smyth’s stick below Pascal Leclaire‘s arms, and shots of Smyth’s stick splitting the crown on his jersey. I’m thinking legal, as were Bob and Jim. Was the lack of a decent camera shot really an issue? FSW didn’t have one, that’s for sure. Let’s be frank, the “War-Room” had no control of this. Too close to call, so they stick with the on-ice ruling. There you go.
