Video- You Make The Call, Chicago Goal Waved Off

Debateable, but after the BS no call that led to Shi’s first goal, I’ll take this.

The Wings caught a break (for once this playoffs) and utilized it.

*#$%@& Milbury; Bickell pushed Kindl into Shaw, which “trapped him” in the crease.

Shut your noise flap, Shoes.

Humm, watching live, I had not seen Bickell pushing Kindl, only Kindl pushing Shaw into Howard!
Nice catch, Red Menace

But on game time, I was like “well, they got a goal after a penalty not called, so its even now” too

He had two feet in the blue.  Rules allow for one.

As someone commented on PuckDaddy - Thomas Holmstom sends his regards and withholds his sympathy.

All the CBC crew was pretty emphatic from the start that it was the right call on the ice. Shaw is a real piece of work.

in his17 years as an NHL ref, Brad Watson has waved off more goals than any other official…
that is the first he has called in Detroit’s favor.

The great thing, as far as the whiners go, is that Watson had the PERFECT angle to see the, ahem, subtle interference and make the call.

Chicago’s second goal is as debatable as their first.

What are they going to do with Shaw?  That kid is a cannon waiting to explode and take the Hawks with them.  I really didn’t think the Hawks would stoop to the goonery in this series.  If you watch closely when the Wings are near the net, they are not crashing it and creating scrums and whacking goalies after the puck has been held. 

Remember the subtle attempt by Boudreau last series when saying our guys were in the paint and they’d been told we can’t cross check them?  Of course you can’t cross check a guy.  It says so in the rules doesn’t it?  You will also remember that every time a Wing was near the crease when a goal was scored they were NOT in the paint!

Seen a lot of Holmstrom goals get called back over the years, and ones much more debatable than this.  Its about time we had one go in our favor.

Not to mention in the rule book that if an opposing player is standing in the crease when a goal is scored, its at the ref’s discretion to waive it off.  So dont stand in the paint, wont be a problem.  Unless your Holmstrom.

Shaw was in the crease before the puck was shot toward the net. He was making it impossible for Jimmy to make a move to stop the first shot and, therefore, it was goalie interference. It doesn’t have to be a situation where you are touching the goalie deliberately….if you are in the blue paint and the goalie is unable to move freely, that’s….interference.

All of us can recall, with some bitterness, the number of times goals were called off, when Homer was deemed to have interfered far less than Shaw did in this instance. We all remember the “butt in the plane of the crease” call, I am sure. Based on one like that, this was a goalie mugging.
