Videos- Those Goalie Interference Calls

No doubt, the refs have been told to make the calls.

Check this one on Nick Bjugstad...

 

 

Below, an incidental interference call on Justin Abdelkader...

The Bjugstad call looked pretty bad, but I also like that the announcer doesn’t understand the difference between interference and goalie interference.

Of course you can be called for goalie interference if you have the puck.

I despise refs that make themselves a factor in the game. These examples are exactly what shouldn’t happen in sports.

Both of those calls were incidents where the goalie forced the contact to happen.  If the NHL is happy with calls like these, then the whole season will see goalies leaping at attacking players and getting bogus interference calls.  Bad officiating and bad policy.

I watched the game, I felt that Montreal is a beast of a team, dirtier than Boston but faster.  They play an intimidating brand of hockey.  That was the closest to a fight this year for the Wings.  We got hosed by the refs again.  However, a lot of people are yelling about no scoring, but they fail to realize that is the brand of hockey the Wings are playing, tight checking, few scoring opportunities, low scoring playoff type games.  That’s Mike Babcock.  We had this game in the bag, but lost it to the REF calling the interference.  The Wings have got to start producing on the PP.  That may be the answer..

It could be a part of the league’s master plan to sucker as many goaltenders as possible into doing just that, only to come back and fine them for embellishment.

To be clear, I don’t necessarily believe the league intends on doing that, but on the other hand, the league doesn’t exactly do things that make sense.

That’s Mike Babcock.

Is it?  Then who coached the Wings in 11-12 when they scored 2.92 goals per game?  Or 10-11 when they averaged 3.13?  Or 08-09 when they scored 3.52?  3.67 in 05-06?

I could’ve sworn those teams were coached by Mike Babcock.

The low scoring isn’t the result of Mike Babcock’s coaching, he’s having to coach this way because his team can’t score enough goals.

We had this game in the bag, but lost it to the REF calling the interference.

The Wings absolutely didn’t have the game in the bag.  They were hanging on for dear life in the third period.

The Ref pissed all over that beautiful goal by Datsyuk. Terrible call. Still, the Wings need to learn how to close out the game.

The PP has been anemic since 2009. You can’t have a terrible PP in the NHL and expect to win games. The PK is much, much improved already, but the PP is still absolutely terrible.
