NHL May Consider Expanding Video Review

November 14, 2009 By: Katchop Category: NHL

The National Hockey League is under fire for several missed calls by referees this season, and some people are asking the league to expand the scope of reviewable plays.

As it stands, only goals are reviewed by league officials at the NHL’s war room in Toronto. In the wake of what happened to the Dallas Stars against Calgary on November 4, the league may want to consider expanding the review criteria to include pucks flying over the glass and pucks returning to the ice after hitting the netting that protects fans at both ends of the rink.

One week ago the Stars were the victim of an incorrect call; a decision that left the team short-handed in overtime and ultimately led to a 3-2 loss. On the play in question, Dallas defenceman Nicklas Grossman was fingered for delay of game after shooting the puck over the glass at 1:04 of overtime. Twenty-one seconds later Calgary’s Jarome Iginla scored the winning goal.

The problem? Grossman was in the neutral zone at the time he launched the puck into the crowd. The rule clearly states that a minor penalty shall be imposed on a player who shoots or deflects the puck directly out of the playing surface while in his defending zone. The television replay clearly showed this to not be the case and when Dallas coach Marc Crawford got word from his staff watching on TV because he immediately went bonkers on the bench.
