Video- “Bad Call, Come On” - Cory Schneider Delay Of Game Penalty

Did Cory Schneider play the puck illegally?

The Wings put the game out of reach by making the score 3-1 with a Tatar goal just off the faceoff.

To be fair, the Devils had 11 shots on goal in the game. 

Do we really think that call is what lost it for them?

I’m still wondering why this rule even exists anymore.  IMO, the goalie can leave the net and play the puck anywhere but puts himself at risk of being played against by the opposing players with minimal non-checking contact.  Maybe not as safe for the goalie but will likely add more goals like they’ve been trying to do.  And yes, horrible call.

Horrible, awful call in a night of horrible, awful officiating.

Considering that those two zebras are among the worst imaginable, I am not surprised.  They called a couple of phantom interference calls, missed about 25 interference calls on the Devils, and this was just icing on the cake.

Entirely blown call (by a ref on the wrong side of the ice) of an absolutely awful rule. Can’t believe they didn’t scrap that rule after one season (or one game, really). But this is Bettman’s NHL where the league isn’t allowed to admit to a mistake.

Bad call on stupid rule to begin with. I can’t even begin to guess how many players have been injured chasing a puck down behind the goal at breakneck speed that would not have occurred if this rule was not in place. Unlike the NFL, the NHL will never admit to blown calls the next day. Score another one for inept management of what is supposed to be a major sport. Shame.

The rule that allows for that call to be made is bad as it is. The call that happened was bad, too.

Bad call for sure, but they were losing and are one of the lowest scoring teams in the league. It seems improbable at best that they would have tied it in the final min.

And I agree with everyone who thinks this rule is absurd. I think it’s a failed experiment that has actually made the game less exciting.

I agree that that the rule has out-lived its usefulness (if it ever had and “usefulness” to begin with). Maybe a botched call like this will make the BOG take a look at changing the rule when they meet the next time.

So, how about this. Leave the painted areas on the ice just as they are and let the goalie play the puck anywhere he wants. However, if he has two skates inside either of the “corner” zones, he’s fair game to be hit (checked into the boards) just like any other player can. Let the goalies decide whether the potential risk of getting hit is worth the potential advantage of playing the puck.

Yeah, I know, they’ll never do it. Maybe because it actually makes sense from a hockey standpoint.

The officiating.

I cannot understand how they could ever look at the tape of this game and think this was a remotely decently officiated game. The holding/clutching/grabbing by the devils in the first few minutes was staggering. The rules about obstruction obviously went out the window for this game. Until the a Wings player did something remotely similar to holding.

Aargh?

Yes. Aargh.

The solution is to require the officials to exhibit at least a moderate level of competence if they are to keep their jobs.  The current crop most closely resembles NBA officials.
