But they got talking together and as soon as they did I knew they were going to botch it up.
It's a new focus from the league, as requested from the GMs, that these sorts of jury style discussions be allowed by all four officials, particularly in cases of goalie interference. I totally agree that it's the wrong way to go about things, but the refs are really just following the new mandate given to them.
Still, the wrong call was made, which makes it even worse that four guys still got it wrong.
