Found November 20, 2012 on Goon's World:
First, I am not shy about my critiques of the officials in the WCHA. I think the level of officiating in the WCHA “at times” has been questionable if not downright brutal. Here is another example of a blown call; in talking to a person that I know in Bemidji; who saw the game – alerted me to the game winning goal scored by Michigan Tech's forward Blake Pietila. First, the video embedded doesn't show the beginning of the play in question; so here is a different video link. At the 1:30 mark of the linked video, you will see that the start of play where the Michigan Tech forward shoots the puck from behind the red line – meaning the play should have been whistled for being offsides. The play should have been whistled dead, but wasn't. The play continues on and the puck goes behind the BSU net where the Beaver defender is tripped behind the BSU net. There is still no whistle. The puck is then picked up by MTU freshman forward Jujhar Khaira who passes the puck to MTU forward Blake Pietila; who was waiting out front of the Bemidji State net who buries the puck in the BSU net. In my opinion that play shouldn't have ever happened. Posted at the Hockey Writers - Combine.
