Rooney is the referee that made the call...
Mention St. Laurent's name to ANY AHL fan and you'll get an ear-full. His ineptitude is well know and many fans consider him to be among the worst officials in the AHL. I've written three letters to the AHL regarding St. Laurent and spoke with AHL President Dave Andrews about St. Laurent a couple of weeks ago when he was in Manchester. He's that bad...
That the NHL assigned these two jokers to this game is testimate to how clueless the league really is...
If he's really bad, what in the hell is he doing NHL games for?
Not saying that I dont believe you KB, but I'm wondering who's in charge of placing referees?
