The whistle was clear (watch the vid I posted). Point is the Stevie Wonder ref shoulda never blew the whistle. Period. Was a bs call. Cow-like manure.

The other refs knew it too. If you watch one of the replays, one of the other refs came up to the dumb-fuq one and whispered to him immediately; prolly tellin' him he was wrong.

So f*ckin' tired of this bias sh*t in favor of the teams deemed by the league as the "chosen ones." Also over the league all over Crosby's cock. If you look at him wrong you get the guillotine. Dude is soft like pudding.

The Predators immediately pulled their goalie, in order to gain a 6-5 advantage in attackers. The trade-off, of course, is that there is no longer a net minder present; and this led to a Penguins' breakaway goal, making the final 2-0.

Had the Predators' first-period goal not been rescinded--and had everything gone just the same as it did--it would have probably led to overtime. (But it is unsure if everything would have been just the same.)

The rationale for the officials' rescinding the Predators' first-period goal was that they (supposedly) had whistled the play dead, just before the goal was scored, since one official could no longer see where the puck was. And that is, indeed, in keeping with the rule.

The officials said that the crowd noise simply drowned out the whistle.

But I watched the play on instant replay, and I never could hear the whistle.

I have to wonder if this was just a CYA thing by the officials...

Not an accurate representation of a white person.

My son Jeff was pleased.
