Kukla's Korner Hockey

The NHL is very good at disciplining and suspending its players.
Someday, it would be nice to see them apply some performance standards to their on-ice officials outside of firing the ones they don’t like at the end of the season.
Yesterday afternoon, the Red Wings and Ducks went at it in an humdinger of a hockey game, won 3-2 by Anaheim. The crime, however, was that the Wings clearly scored in the final minute of play on a Nicklas Lidstrom shot from the point that beat J.S. Giguere but had it incorrectly waved off by veteran official Dan O’Halloran.
You can see a video of the non-goal at A2Y.
Update 1:20pm: More on the refs from Michael Farber in Sports Illustrated today.
