Once again an official’s mistake changed the outcome of a game. Maybe even a better chance at a playoff berth. Refs are supposed to be almost nonexistant but are more and more the determining factor in games. Shame

Are we sure the fact Quick only touched it didn’t negate the high stick?

I’m certainly biased for the Kings. That said, if I understand the rule correctly, without possession by the Kings, there should not have been a goal, and Quick’s attempt to play the puck is a grey area, however it wouldn’t typically be considered possession.

But damn, when that’s combined with calling off Lewis’s goal when it was actually a Star that ran over Lehtonen, the officiating left one hell of a bad taste in my mouth and I was surprised when they didn’t overrule Carter’s OT goal.

Again… why as a league can’t we institute a system in which we review goals before giving them a yes or no?

They obviously missed that call.

Fuched this one up as well.

These two examples sure make the case for expanding the use of replay.

I always liked Bob Miller & Jim Fox. One of the best tandems among local NHL broadcasters .

from Kerry Fraser of TSN,

Following the high stick of the puck and resulting goal scored by Antoine Rousell, a conference took place involving all the Officials to determine if the puck had been struck with a high stick by Garbutt.  Jim Fox is correct in his analysis that this play cannot be determined through video review but only by the Officials judgment on the ice. All goals are reviewed and it could only be determined that the puck was put into the net in a ‘legal’ manner by Rousell and not that he had received the puck illegally through a high stick.

The following quote was made by Kings Captain Dustin Brown in a postgame interview, “The way they (Referees) explained it to me was – if it went in the net it would have been a no goal because it was a high stick above the crossbar, but because it was a high stick above the crossbar but below his shoulder – that’s [the reason],” With this information it would be reasonable to assume that either Linesman Cvik wasn’t 100% sure of his initial judgment, was talked out it, or overruled as the Officials collective final judgment determined that the puck was struck below the normal height of Ryan Garbutt’s shoulders.

That excuse is lame.

So the refs are so precise that they can tell that puck hit the guys high stick at shoulder level yet cannot see that before Tootoo’s goal, the puck was hit by a defender’s glove.

I call bovine excrement.
