James Mirtle asks the question in his Globe & Mail blog post today, citing these remarks by David Legwand after the Vancouver-Nashville matchup last night:
“I think it’s a horrible call,” Legwand told Yahoo! Sports, among others. “Obviously they’re going to think it’s a good call, but Kesler’s obviously holding his stick. I don’t know if Timmy Peel had a date or something, but he wanted to get out of here pretty quick, it looked like. It’s a tough way to lose a game.”
He repeated his message more than once, according to the Vancouver Sun.
“That ticky-tack in overtime is kind of tough,” Legwand added. “I don’t know if the ref had to be somewhere tonight. It was a tough call to take; obviously Kesler is holding on to his stick. Webby’s stick shouldn’t be in there in the first place, but Kesler’s holding on his stick and that’s a pretty touchy call for overtime.
“Someone’s got to be held accountable for it. That’s a bad hockey call. In the end, they get the goal and capitalize. Timmy Peel calls that and it’s a bad call. Do something about it. It’s kind of tough to point on one person, but that’s a bad hockey call.”
