    Oh and the Sharks won tonight on a clear hand-pass. That is non-reviewable...

    EDIT: Oh god they gave him an assist for the hand pass, but cut it out of the gif of the goal in the NHL's own instagram account Fix your shit NHL

    Fail 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Sharks benefit from yet another controversial officiating decision in Game 3

    by Pete Blackburn - CBS Sports


    Here we are again: Another case of controversial officiating in the Stanley Cup playoffs, and another situation in which the San Jose Sharks have benefited from that officiating.

    The Sharks won Game 3 of their Western Conference Final series against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night, doing so in overtime as Erik Karlsson scored his second goal of the game to give San Jose the 5-4 victory. But Karlsson's goal was made possible by an apparent hand pass from teammate Timo Meier, who swatted the puck out of mid-air to help his team gain possession and set up Karlsson's winner.

    After Meier batted down the puck with an open hand, Gustav Nyquist collected it and dished to Karlsson for the one-timer to end it.

    The issue here is that officials should have blown the whistle after Nyquist touched the puck following Meier's hand pass. The NHL rulebook allows some discretion by the on-ice officials, but it's pretty clear that Meier's swat provided the Sharks with an advantage that allowed them to retain possession in the attacking zone.

    By the language of the rulebook, it certainly seems like this should have been ruled a hand pass and there should have been a stoppage, even if the puck grazed the leg of a Blues defender before Nyquist gathered possession.

    Unfortunately, apparently no member of the on-ice officiating crew saw the play unfold and, as a result, it was ruled a good goal on the ice. And even more unfortunately for the Blues, the hand pass rule isn't reviewable after the fact. St. Louis players furiously protested the call while the officials briefly huddled, then proceeded to timidly skate off the ice.

    After the game, Blues coach Craig Berube was understandably irked by the call, but he didn't seem eager to talk about it.

    It'll be interesting to see if the NHL releases a statement (or apology) addressing the end of the game. The league apologized earlier in this postseason and admitted that officials wrongly gave Vegas Golden Knights forward Cody Eakin a cross-checking major in Game 7 of their first-round series against the Sharks. Eakin's major paved the way for the Sharks to score four goals on the ensuing power play, allowing them to climb back in the game and eventually win in overtime.

    The Sharks also got a major break in Game 7 of their second-round series against the Colorado Avalanche when the Avs had the potential game-tying goal wiped off the board thanks to a controversial offside call in the second period. The Sharks narrowly won that game to punch their ticket to the West final.

    Wow, Rask is a fucking wall. Five goals allowed in a four game sweep. The Canes just could not figure him out. Good luck to whoever faces them from the West. Should be an excellent final either way, but I'm hoping the Sharks can beat the Blues personally.

    Hah... the refs from Game 3 Sharks game won't officiate the rest of the playoffs. That's about the best you can really offer up until the offseason when they need to fix some shit. It says something though that that team of refs/linesmen was apparently their highest rated group all season. These mistakes happen but when you review shit all game long and then can't review a huge goal like that, something is broken.

    Worst problem the Bruins have now will be the layoff, especially with a hot goaltender right now. Rask is one of those streaky goalies and having him sit for a week or more without facing real action could hurt.

    And I'm rooting for the Blues, the Sharks don't deserve to be in the playoffs anymore let alone make the finals because of all the referee assistance they've received. And it will be a rematch of the 1970 Stanley Cup finals if it's the Blues...back when this happened:
