You will not believe that, but tonight there was a lot of controversy in the NHL playoffs. In the extension of Game 3 between the Sharks and the Blues, Erik Karlsson scored the winner, his second goal of the game, to give San Jose a 2-1 lead in the series. However, the Sharks' 5: 4 victory was not received politely by the crowd in St. Louis, as Timo Meier's lead to Karlsson's goal could have been whistled.
For those who are not well versed in NHL rule 79, a player can not beat the puck by hand to a team mate or allow his team with a hand pass to gain an advantage. The piece should be dead as soon as possible Gus Nyquist touched the puck. I myself can not even track what exactly is and can not be verified, but apparently this could not be checked by the officials. This is an incredibly hard break for the Blues who led late in the game until Logan Couture was able to compensate one minute before the end of regular time . And it's an even worse turn for their sticks.
Somewhere, Jonathan Marchessault and Gabriel Landeskog shake their heads sympathetically in a dirty bar with dim light and buds in the fridge.
