Video: No-goal call stands after review

Jun 15, 2013, 9:11 PM EDT

The NHL explains why a would-be 2-0 goal for Marian Hossa did not count after a video review session. Here’s the full spiel from the league’s “Situation Room” blog:

At 12:32 of the first period in the Blackhawks/Bruins game, video review was initiated by the NHL Situation Room because the puck entered the Boston net. The referee had blown the play dead prior to Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa pushing the goaltender’s pads and the puck across the goal line. No goal Chicago.

Decide for yourself:

Here’s a screen shot of the puck in the net (via Kim Maher), for those who’d like to get angry:

    That picture of the puck in goal was a good minute after play had ended and Tuukka was getting back up

      Completely agree with the call on this one. The ref lost sight of the puck, and that shot is after Rask got up.

      I don’t know what you were looking at …….on CBC it clearly shows the puck over the line when the whistle is just coming to the referees mouth…

    The score shouldn’t be 2-0 as a result of that play. The score should be about 4-0 because the Bruins got completely out-played on an vastly embarrassing scale. By the way, if Krug keeps up his play, he may find Bartkowski in his place in game three.

      If you believe so much in what shoulda, woulda, coulda, take this It would still be a 1-1 series cause the “B’s” totally outplayed and got robbed in game one….

    I can’t see a damn thing because the idiots at NBC Network decided I’d rather see reruns of Chicago Fire!!

    • imleftcoast - Jun 15, 2013 at 9:39 PM

      You might be on the wrong NBC channel. It’s got to be on.

    • Windmiller4 - Jun 15, 2013 at 9:44 PM

      NBC sports, not the local NBC

      • sabatimus - Jun 15, 2013 at 9:59 PM

        For some dumb reason, yes.

  4. rasal68 - Jun 15, 2013 at 9:43 PM

    It ‘s on if you have NBC Sports. Is NHL so insignificant that it can’t be shown on the main NBC network. No cable=No Hockey according to NBC!

  5. rasal68 - Jun 15, 2013 at 9:51 PM

    I’m in a place that doesn’t have NBC Sports. I can’t watch the game. Period. I can watch reruns of their network crap. NBC SUCKS.

    • hockinj25 - Jun 15, 2013 at 11:39 PM

      Watch it online.

  6. madtolive5 - Jun 15, 2013 at 10:00 PM

    This convo on NBC is way more important then o’brien’s post…

  7. dadawg77 - Jun 15, 2013 at 10:02 PM

    If you or can use a friends id who has Comcast, you can stream the game on NBCSN.

  8. rasal68 - Jun 15, 2013 at 10:09 PM

    Sorry about the “convo” concerning NBC but you might feel different if you couldn’t watch the actual game.

  9. titansbro - Jun 15, 2013 at 10:11 PM

    Lol @ Chicago Fire. That show sucks. I feel for ya.

  10. 8man - Jun 15, 2013 at 10:12 PM

    Hawks are amazing! It’s like they have an extra skater. Bs fortunate to be tied going into the third.

  11. gallyhatch - Jun 15, 2013 at 10:24 PM

    Bruins are DAMN lucky to be tied right now. . . . I hope they can somehow turn this crappy showing into a win.

    If you know how, you can bounce your computer’s network signal off a Canadian VPN and you can pull it up on CBC. Most of the time I usually just watch it over a friend’s house on NBCSN, but if I can’t then that’s what I do. Then I can hook it up to my TV and it’s still really good quality. It’s pretty easy to do and it’s free. Google gives pretty good instructions. Aside from games 2 and 3 all the games are on main NBC if I’m not mistaken, so I guess this is more advice for next year, but figured I’d share my secrets for those interested.

    And….that’s why Hockey will stay fringe. This game was gift wrapped for the Bruins.

    • sabatimus - Jun 16, 2013 at 1:41 AM

      Oh shut up and go post on PFT.

      • razzlejag - Jun 16, 2013 at 4:22 AM

        Yeah, really…there’s nothing gift wrapped about NHL Playoffs. Best show in sports.

    • 8man - Jun 16, 2013 at 10:28 AM

      Leave your mom’s basement and go some place you can actually watch what happened instead of inferring you know from this thread.

  14. greenmtnboy31 - Jun 16, 2013 at 8:44 AM

    Another game, another blown call by the zebras. We’re seeing waaaaaay too many blown calls this spring.

  15. holeecowman - Jun 16, 2013 at 11:33 AM

    ok im not gonna say who i would like to win but if you watch the video and pay attention to it the puck does cross the line right before the whistle

  16. equator180 - Jun 16, 2013 at 11:38 AM

    Even being of not perfect vision anyone could see the puck was in before the whistle, this was a blotched call

    • thesportsjudge - Jun 16, 2013 at 5:02 PM

      Maybe, but you also have the advantage of CAMERA angles. How do you know the refs angle?

  17. timmeh022 - Jun 17, 2013 at 9:53 AM

    As a HAWKS FAN, that was the right call. It’s hard to take, but the ref behind the net was in perfect position and couldn’t see the puck. He thought Rask had it covered, as did I until they showed the camera angle and saw it sneak across. They reviewed it and determined it was dead before the puck crossed; the right call. Sucks, but it was right. Congrats to Boston for battling hard in game 2 and winning, they wanted it more in the latter 40 of that game. Can’t wait to see what game 3 brings!
