Let’s be clear about what NHL refs Dan O’Halloren and Rob Martell and NHL linesmen Don Henderson and Mike Cvik failed to do and the level of colossal ignorance they showed, individually and collectively.
The puck is deflected. They did not see where it went.
What is supposed to happen when the referee loses sight of the puck? When they don’t know where it is? Sit there and wait until they find it? No. You blow the fucking whistle. That is Dan O’Halloren and Rob Martell’s job.
The puck is deflected and the puck goes up in the air.
I saw it go up. The LA Kings players saw it go up. Drew Doughty was pointing up the ENTIRE time. One of the refs has to watch the net. The other three officials? What are they watching? Not the puck. Not the shot. Not the play. What are THREE separate on-ice officials watching?
Speaking of the ref who was supposed to be watching the net. Was he? If so, how the fuck did he not see the puck COMING DOWN and hitting Quick in the back AT THAT ANGLE, before it trickles in?
Do not tell me they should have a replay rule for this. If even ONE of four of these morons is doing their job, this doesn’t happen.
John F. Kennedy was not killed by a magic bullet.
There is no such thing as a magic puck.
A puck does not disappear and then reappear in the goal.
I don’t want to read about their apology. There is only one thing that will make me feel better. Dan O’Halloren, Rob Martell, Don Henderson, Mike Cvik…head or gut mother fuckers.
