I did not see the Carrick penalty, so I cannot comment on it -- just saw the aftermath of both players laying on the ice behind the net. The biggest issue I had with the officiating was the disallowed goals due to the net getting "dislodged".

However, the Whalers lost because of their defensive play, not the officiating. Giving up two shorthanded goals on the same power play is inexcusable. The team played as poorly in the first period as I have seen all season.

The turning point in the game for London, I think, was an incredible glove save Stolarz made after the Whalers had gone up 4-3. That should have been a goal, but Stolarz made as good a glove save as you will ever see. If that puck goes in, it's 5-3 Plymouth and the game is over.

BTW, I didn't realize Stolarz was that big -- 6'6"! The kid is HUGE! Very unusual to see a goalie that big.
