James Mirtle asks the question in his Globe & Mail blog post today, citing these remarks by David Legwand after the Vancouver-Nashville matchup last night:
“I think it’s a horrible call,” Legwand told Yahoo! Sports, among others. “Obviously they’re going to think it’s a good call, but Kesler’s obviously holding his stick. I don’t know if Timmy Peel had a date or something, but he wanted to get out of here pretty quick, it looked like. It’s a tough way to lose a game.”
He repeated his message more than once, according to the Vancouver Sun.
“That ticky-tack in overtime is kind of tough,” Legwand added. “I don’t know if the ref had to be somewhere tonight. It was a tough call to take; obviously Kesler is holding on to his stick. Webby’s stick shouldn’t be in there in the first place, but Kesler’s holding on his stick and that’s a pretty touchy call for overtime.
“Someone’s got to be held accountable for it. That’s a bad hockey call. In the end, they get the goal and capitalize. Timmy Peel calls that and it’s a bad call. Do something about it. It’s kind of tough to point on one person, but that’s a bad hockey call.”

from John Glennon of the Tennessean,
Predators center David Legwand is doubtful for tonight’s game against San Jose after taking a puck to the side of his face during practice Wednesday.
The team plans to re-evaluate his status today after some of the considerable swelling goes down from the area. So it’s uncertain whether or not he’s dealing with a broken bone.
from the Tennessean,
Predators center David Legwand, who was arrested and charged with driving under intoxication and implied consent on Feb. 15, pleaded guilty Wednesday to reckless driving.
Legwand received a six months suspended sentence and six months probation — contingent on his attendance in alcohol safety school — and was fined $350. He lost his license for a year for refusing a Breathalyzer test at the time of his arrest.
from the Tennessean,
Predators center David Legwand would not comment on reports Saturday that he is facing a DUI charge.
“The attorneys are handling it, and we will go from there,” Legwand said following the 6-3 loss to Dallas.
Said Coach Barry Trotz: “I am aware of the situation. From what I know we will let the courts handle it. No action will be taken until everything goes through the right process.”
