yeah, that's what happened and if the whistle didn't blow it would have totally counted. but it did blow, and it blew before the puck crossed the line so it's immediately treated as a dead play.

in hockey the whistle is kind of the final thing. it's supposed to stop late hits, hard late shots on relaxed goalies, etc. it goes, all play is dead. any scrums you see after the whistle are usually because a player took exception to this (seriously, see a player take a shot on a goalie after a while and some rough stuff will emerge). so, this is why i'm confused.

was it a premature whistle? yeah. but this happens, maybe once a game, the ref is supposed to call the play dead as soon as they loose sight of the puck, and the ref here blew it because they assumed it was covered an secure, even though it bounced out.

Makes sense to me.

OJFC, you put a bunch of chicks on skates and throw them on the ice, of course you're going to have a scoring controversy.

3) The officials caused the US to lose.

Isn't this Olympic movement about World Love?

Pax is the name of a really popular pocket vaporizer. Good job, Weather Channel. I will say that naming these storms is useful for Twitter purposes.

Well...it's not that simple. Not saying the play wasn't officially dead BUT....usually it's assumed the puck is tied up with the ref loses sight of it. When you're on defense you want an early whistle, offense a late whistle. The puck was obviously not tied up and moving so when a goal was called, what's the most unusual, is to have what's called a goal reversed. You know as well as I do hockey is not about the video replay it's about what the ref calls and then moving on with the game. Once that goal is called it usually sticks. IDK, I'm 20 years out of touch with the game, but it hasn't changed that much that the ref's call is reversed more than very rarely on a goal, has it?

thing is, neither ref called a goal, they called it dead. You can see this in the link, it's very obvious when a goal is signaled (the direct full extended hand to the net) vs. something else (in this case it was the ref holding up her whistle). Then they went to video replay, which from what i understand you can't do on a play like this (you can in NHL), and then indicated a goal. It's whacky, and seems very much against the book (er, amateur) in many ways. also, on the replay the ref and linesman positioning was WAY behind the play, not cool.

Wait. No one on the ice called it a goal and then it was called in replay? Yeah, that's bogus. If it had been called on the ice, dead or not dead, I'd say it sticks. Whistled dead, no call from the ice, then on video replay? Yeah, that makes no sense.

Am posting here b/c fuck cancer. It took my mother, albeit much to do with her life choices, but one of my colleagues was just diagnosed with brain cancer. His office is right next door past mine in the hall. In a rough practice area, he could be Harvey personality wise, who is awesome no knock on HB, but my colleague was the nicest most caring and genuine person I ever met. He always made it a point to say hello each morning but never forced a convo bc he knew I am not able to communicate til my six shots are down in the morning. If I needed to talk something through, even though we do very different things, he was happy to listen even though it wasn't his field. He would give me updates on his exploits... What trial he was on and so forth.

I will spare the details, but he had a random issue goes to get checked and what seemed minor turned into a life threatening event literally a day or so ago.
