The difference between the off-side and the icing calls is simple: one is a judgment call and one is not.

Both were botched, but the icing call is one the linesman does have the right to call off (although I would admit it should not have been waved off).

The off-side is a clear-cut botched call with no room for interpretation.

I guess it is an even-up kind of situation, but it is horrible to see such a mess being made in such an important game.

This should go a long way to ending the ridiculous conspiracy threads we have been dealing with the past few weeks, though, so I am almost glad it happened.
