A Challenge to the NHL; Officiating Must Change by @ChicksDigHockey

The 2014 NHL playoffs have been a tangle of excitement and frustration. A two goal lead has been tenuous, stars have failed to shine and officiating has been too much of a factor.  On the one hand, it’s incredibly difficult to be skating on the ice, moving amongst the action and still see everything you need to. On the other hand, obviously blown calls have been impactful in a...

The Best and Worst of Tampa's Short Postseason

So this is the end, and man, it was ugly. Both Games 1 & 3 were huge and could've changed the entire series if it weren't for a few mistakes and a bad call, but you have to face reality and accept the fact that Tampa Bay is done for the season. First off, you have to tip your hat to the Montreal Canadiens, no matter how bitter you are that they just swept you. They...

Habs Widen Series Gap vs Lightning

The only Canadian team in this year’s NHL playoffs impressed their home crowd on Sunday evening by defeating the disgruntled Ligtning 3-2 to take a commanding 3-0 series lead. First of all, I realize that Tampa Bay fans are angry at the officials. My twitter feed was going crazy last night, and I was eventually blocked for simply stating facts, as well as standing up for my team...

Flash Points: Lightning pushed to brink with Game 3 loss to Canadiens

The Bolts are on the brink. Are the officials to blame? It will be convenient for some to point to a disallowed goal from winger Ryan Callahan in the second period Sunday as the reason the Tampa Bay Lightning lost 3-2 and fell behind 3-0 in their Eastern Conference quarterfinals series against the Montreal Canadiens. In front of a charged crowd at Bell Centre, Callahan appeared to...

WATCH: Tampa Bay goal disallowed on questionable call

The Tampa Bay Lightning scored a goal that looked to be the go-ahead goal for them but the goal was somehow waived off. The referee initially said the contact between Alex Killorn and Carey Price was okay, but then he changed his mind and waived off the goal. It’s a terrible break for Tampa Bay, especially considering Steven Stamkos was hurt a few minutes later and then Montreal...

After Game 1 near miss, Lightning must recover quickly

TAMPA, Fla. -- There's one way to recall this one: Oh-so close.

If the NHe ice before being carted off and taken to the hospital.  However, replays seem to indicate that Ranger — who was looking over his shoulder at the forechecking Killorn — appeared to turn just before Killorn delivered what would have been a legal check. At least that has to be the NHL’s thinking on the play. Killorn received a 5-minute major for boarding and a game...
