So is missing a high stick that went into the net. So is missing a kick in or the puck getting batted into the net. Anytime a play is reviewed with the exception of whether the referee lost sight of the puck it is technically due to human error. A high stick is usually due to it being border line, I'll give you that. How about a kick in? 9 times out of 10 that's due to human error of a referee just not seeing it or not seeing it clearly. So why is that allowed to be reviewed?

If the play was offside, and the team who was scored against never assumed control of the puck I still haven't heard a rational explanation as to why a goal scored on such a play should not be reviewed.

If this was soccer this play would be talked about for a week and their offsides is a lot easier to blow the call than in hockey. In hockey we have a line drawn on the ice and the luxury of video review. If this call went against the Devils you all would be saying the same thing.

Eh, just leave him alone. He's a sad little Devils fan that just wants to bask in the failures of our club while trying to ignore the failures of his.

Who was it that eliminated the Devils from the playoffs this year? Who was it again? I can't remember. And in how many games?

fun series. be proud of that rangers team. that series wasnt reflective of the 4 games to 1. few bounces of the puck and this series would have probably gone to 7.

lundqvist is a beast. that guy is going to be awesome for a long time.

I can understand the frustration of some of you with the goal and wether or not the play was offside.

But, I don't know if making a play like that reviewable is the best thing, it will open a huge can of worms, it is a tough call.

It sucks though that it was the goal that ended the series...

A tough pill to swallow for sure....

If you look you see that Dupis was just a hair across the line with both of his feet pretty much together and a white space between him and the blueline. Now, the linesman is all the way across the other side. The blue lines show that his line of sight is probably blocked by Malkin. He probably could not see the puck nor could he probably see whether Dupis was onside. However, as we can see it was offside.

Now the question that I pose is, why isn't this type of play reviewable? It was offsides, so why isn't there some kind of review?

That is definitive proof? Look like the puck is on goal side of the line which would be onsides no?

This picture the puck is in the zone already you can not determine off sides or not.

Reviewing every questionable off sides would make games last 6 hours......
