Complaining About Holmstrom

from Gordon McIntyre of the Vancouver Province,

On Tuesday when Niklas Kronwall scored to make it 2-2 early in the second, Holmstrom not once, not twice, but three times pushed Alex Edler out of the way while at the same time bumping against Roberto Luongo.

Then on Pavel Datsyuk’s go-ahead goal that made it 4-3 on the power play, Holmstrom was partially tying up Willie Mitchell in front of Luongo. You could argue that had it been Mitchell doing the same thing he’d be called for interference.

In football it’s called offensive interference; in the NHL it’s called when and if the refs feel like it.
