Boston defeats Pittsburgh 2-1 in double OT

The Boston Bruins defeated the Pittburgh Penguins 2-1 in double overtime, with the Bruins staking out a 3-games-to-0 lead over the Penguins thanks to a Patrice Bergeron goal scored at 15:19 of double OT...

But Jaromir Jagr's hook of Evgeni Malkin yielded the turnover and game-winner...So discuss as you wish.

I enjoy these double OT games more when my team isn’t involved.

Crappy way to end the game though.

There was no way they were calling that hook after letting worse shit go the entire game.

The announcer, in the replay, calls it “a little bit of a hook”, sort of like how the Grand Canyon is a little bit of a hole.

That was one of the most obvious hooks I’ve ever seen. It must be what the business end of a can opener looks like from the inside. It could be used to illustrate what exactly a hook is in the rulebook.

It would have been called in the regular season, probably would have been called in the 2nd period of a tied playoff game. No way they’re calling that in double-OT. Which is crap because the idea is that they won’t call it because they don’t want the refs to decide the game when in reality they allowed a penalty to go uncalled that led directly to the game winner. So the refs did decide the game. How about calling the rules as they’re written and let the players decide the game by playing within the rules or paying a price when they break them? The problem is they’re so scared of having to defend a bad call that they’d rather not make any call. Which says a lot about the NHL confidence in their referees.

NHL reffing continues to be a farce.

The replay maybe biased, but from the looks of it, the pens were lucky to be in that game at all, thanks to some great work from Vokoun.

Bylsma is supposed to hold Sidney and Geno’s hands to help them score? Come on. Fact is Pens stars are failing miserably this series.
