from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

There’s been a trend of head-scratching, controversial goalie interference — or not — calls around the NHL the past few weeks.

The Red Wings were caught in such a maddening play Saturday and it cost them at least one crucial point in the standings.

Florida’s Jonathan Huberdeau scored with 7.7 seconds left in regulation — on a play the Red Wings felt Huberdeau interfered with goaltender Petr Mrazek — giving the Florida Panthers a dramatic 3-2 victory.

“That’s insane they called that a goal,” forward Justin Abdelkader said. “That was an easy one, I thought. It’s frustrating.”

Abdelkader said he and captain Henrik Zetterberg got different explanations from referees, only adding to the confusion of what exactly is goaltending interference these days.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
