The Panther announcer said it was the "motion of the coyotes stick" that made Huselius lose the puck. That's a BS rule if you ask me. Either way, the refs have screwed the Panthers ALL year, but I still don't like it when **** like this happens.
i didnt get to see the goal, what happened exactly?
Huselius had the puck on the point, Shields had left the net for a delayed call. Huselius (supposedly our best stickhandler) lost control of the puck and it went all the way down and in the empty net. What really pissed me off is that Huselius barely skated to try to stop it and Odelein was skating like a beast to try to stop it.
The refs disallowed the goal because they said the 'Yotes player caused Huselius to lose control of the puck.
I have been pissed off all day. The refs made the right call. The problem is, its a terrible rule. Hulse never touched the puck, but he caused the puck to go in the net. If the puck wasn't scored, play would have continued. According to Francis, "there is a lot of gray area". Well said...
