Not A Good Night For The Minnesota Wild

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

Parise didn’t emerge for the third period after sustaining what coach Mike Yeo called an upper-body injury. There were two big collisions I remember with Parise tonight. One came his first shift when he was bowled over from behind by Robert Bortuzzo. The other came 5:44 into the second when he was cross-checked the ice by Blake Comeau in the slot. Comeau received an interference penalty on the play.

So perhaps the injury stemmed from one of those two hits.

Yeo didn’t reveal the seriousness or nature of the injury postgame. He said he hoped to have a better update after practice Wednesday and said “I sure hope not” when asked if he felt it was serious....

The big controversy of the night came with 3:06 left when Koivu scored. The goal was disallowed by referee Francois St. Laurent – replays showed Marcel Goc punched the puck from the other side of the goal line and out.

The NHL Situation Room in Toronto initiated a review, and then after two or three minutes of St. Laurent talking to Toronto, he announces no-goal because it was a non-reviewable play because he ruled incidental contact on Thomas Greiss (Mikael Granlund, aided by Kris Letang and Paul Martin, was on Greiss).

OK, debatable depending on your point of view or fandom. But then why the heck were they reviewing a non-reviewable play for two minutes. It should be as simple as Toronto calling and the referee saying, incidental contact, goodbye.

more and watch the no-goal below...
