If the Blue Jackets defeat Detroit, they will do so thanks to a joke of a goal

Columbus currently leads the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 because this goal by Cam Atkinson was deemed legal...

 

Here's the NHL's ruling:

At 6:58 of the third period in the Detroit Red Wings/Columbus Blue Jackets game, the NHL Situation Room initiated a review because the puck crossed the Red Wings goal line. The referee determined that the puck crossed the goal line and that Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith pushed Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson into the net causing the goal post to be dislodged.

According to rule 63.6 "In the event that the goal post is displaced, either deliberately or accidentally, prior to the puck crossing the normal positions of the goal posts, the referee may award a goal. In order to award a goal in this situation, the goal post must have been displaced by the actions of a defending player, the puck must have been shot (or the player must be in the act of shooting) at the goal prior to the goal post being displaced, and it must be determined that the puck would have entered the net between the normal position of the goal posts. The goal frame is considered to be displaced if either or both goal pegs are no longer in their respective holes in the ice, or the net has come completely off one or both pegs, prior to or as the puck enters the goal." This is not a reviewable call. Good goal Columbus.

even Kings fans think the Red Wings got robbed on this one. But, as they say, what goes around comes around.

Good call by the refs. If Smith doesn’t make that moronic pinch, this doesn’t happen.

They didn’t lose because of a bad goal. They lost because they played like shit and let in 2pp goals in the first and Nyquist was again the only guy trying to score goals.

Very true.  Had the Wings played much better they could have won that game.  It’s annoying that they can’t have an off game like that and still win because they refs won’t allow it.

Columbus didn’t play a great game by any means, yet still won.  Questionable goal in their favor, 4 minute highsticking missed, slashing call on Legwand completely wrong…..makes things a lot easier.

The Wings lost to some of the worst reffing I’ve seen in a long time.  They lost after TWO goals off of garbage pps, then the net crashing (multiple times by atkinson).  How Bertuzzi can be called for high sticking while he’s skating in the opposite direction, back to the jackets player, has the jackets player attempt to dry hump him from behind and deep throat his stick…and it’s Bertuzzi’s fault??? Miller gets his face hacked apart for a big no call? Legwand with the defensive play of the night gets rewarded with yet another phantom penalty? I could go on and on…

Fact - That’s a total of THREE for the refs, NONE for colombus, and 2 for the Wings (should have been more with fair officiating)

Typical NHL. Let a BS call stand in a critical situation because the league won’t overrule incompetent officiating. They could have called Atkinson for interfering with Howard in the crease and preventing him from moving his glove to scoop up the puck. Instead they make an obscene call against the Wings.

Yes, there were times when the Wings played like crap but Columbus was not exactly stellar in their own end either. They got the benefit of terrible calls all night as well as a number of non-calls that could have given the Wings a PP.

What he said.  Brutal calls. Especially when a lot is on the line it was very disappointing to see so many off and missed calls.

Yeah, they shot themselves in the foot over and over again—hey, enough with the cutesy passes in your own end resulting in brain-damaged turnovers, ok—but it’s hard to play five against nine.  Ye gods, you wouldn’t get called back to a mites league with those calls.

Give the refs some credit. They called this game exactly the same way the last BJ-Wings game was called. So at least give those incompetent pieces of sh!t some credit for being consistent.

Honestly, it’s embarrassing to watch the missed calls and the incorrect calls end up being such a huge part of how a game turns out. Martell and Rooney should wear bags over their heads in public after tonight’s debacle. On second thought, they probably could have worn bags over their heads during the game and done a better job.

I’ve seen that play referenced well over a dozen times since it happened whenever a Wing fan has had a problem with officiating.  Just out of curiosity how many times are the Wings allowed to get screwed over to make up for that one call in their favor? 50? 100?  It’s funny how 22 years of being in the playoffs has bred so much hate from all the other fan bases.  I’d love to say “see how you like it when the shoe’s on the other foot”, but really, what team’s going to match that streak any time soon if ever?

The net was already off when Atkinson hit the puck in.  No goal, per rule 63.6.

I’m glad I’m not seeing things. That’s what I saw as well.

Though I didn’t like the call on the goal, the officiating was bad all around.  There were a few times I heard Micky Redmond say “I don’t know how he got away with that one” refering to one of our players, and he was right.  Not all of the bad/missed calls were to our detriment.

Our guys were indeed getting away with a lot. Franzen took a phantom crosscheck in the crease late in the third, fell to the ice as if he was shot and then elbowed Umburger in the head in retaliation for the cross check that wasn’t. It was so poorly acted that I laughed, but that play was a good allegory for the game over all.
