It absolutely was a bad call, because just because the puck is out of sight for a split second doesnt mean you should blow the whistle. Refs and quick whistles is one of the absolutely most obnoxious things in this league at times. Theres absolutely no reason to not wait a moment to make sure the play isnt continuing
The guy was standing on the opposite side of the net for ****s sake. Obviously he wont see it over there. In that case he should submit to the guy out at the blue line.
