The Hockey Gods knew the subsequent goalie interference call would have overturned the goal, so they mercifully let us skip the whole play so that Vegas could score at the other end.

May They rule in wisdom and glory forever, or else as long as the current CBA shall be valid.

my twitter says Hellebuyck, Wheeler, and Coach Maurice were all very vocal in post-game about the goalie interference decision. I haven't listened so I don't know exactly what they said.

But, IMO, league-wide, this inconsistency/ambiguity has become a problem that needs to get addressed ASAP, and it certainly needs to get addressed well in advance of the playoffs.

Well yeah, that should've been holding but you can't push the goaltender in to the net when he's covering the puck.

I was watching that live and was furious when they actually called it a goal, and had to use a challenge after to get it corrected. And yeah, the shortie after was hilarious.

Between that, the bruins hitting the Blues goalie away, and the Hellebyuck hit, they really relaxed too much on that poo poo.

Bettman was on CBC during the ASG saying that they're going to start instructing referees to rely heavily on the call on the ice, and only flip things if it's especially egregious.

Which I thought the Bruins goal would be but apparently not.

Biznasty and Jason Williams played in the EIHL for a couple years. I think there have been a couple other random NHLers and a few punchmen who have wound up there for a bit only to come back to the US.

Hey, most of the Canadian ex-pats I know who played in the AIHL love it, so go for it. Sure, it's a semi-pro league with no salaries and some of the rinks have the worst ice I've ever seen let alone skated on, but there are parrots and kangaroos outside.

My recollection is they absolutely killed it too. There's a huge difference in skill between even the worst player to play in the NHL and the minor leagues.

He outpaced Williams, who was more of a scorer (14 in 11 games). Brian McGrattan played with Williams in Nottingham.

Other NHLers in England last year: Patrick Bourdeleau, Derek Walser, Jim Vandermeer, Jay Rosehill, Richard Jackman, Jared Staal

Looking at random profiles, it's mostly where AHLers and ECHLers go to die because they're not good enough for Germany/Sweden/Switzerland/the KHL.
