from David Pollak of the Mercury News,
The Sharks were denied a win over the Winnipeg Jets on Nov. 10 when an overtime goal by Marleau was waived off by a referee who said Tommy Wingels made incidental contact with netminder Ondrej Pavalec.
But when Parise fired in a rebound at 3:55 of the second period to give the Wild a 1-0 lead, the goal was allowed to stand even after Minnesota forward Jason Pominville fell on Niemi.
"Completely different interpretation of what was explained to me in Winnipeg," McLellan said of the response he got after complaining about the goal. "I'll be looking for an explanation before we lose our third point now."
Niemi said he expected that goal to be disallowed.
"Yeah I think I was bumped. I'm not sure where it happened or if they did it on purpose or not, but it affected the play, for sure," said Niemi, who added that the official told him he was outside the crease at the time -- something that usually isn't a factor.
