    This is Kerry Fraser's take on that waved-off goal:

    I've made similar coincident calls before during my reffing career, generally the decision to stop play is more out of concern for the scrum escalating to a fight (which the NHL is very much against, and we are doing our best to keep out of youth/junior/college hockey).

    With a penalty on each team ready to be called, it's a decision of either (Depending on level and situation): 1. Waiting for either team to gain possession and control of the puck to stop play or 2. Blowing the play dead immediately. Regardless (and under any circumstance), the play is to be blown dead before any shot can be taken, which, in my opinion, is the correct call (regardless of what team it "screwed over"). Walkom made the right call plain and simple, Fraiser may disagree, but even us refs don't see eye to eye on every call. Something to consider would be that Walkom didn't want this scrum to escalate to the point where another player got injured similar to Filppula, something that was sure to be a bit of concern in the back of everyone's minds.

    As for a collective sigh of relief by the refs/league, of course it was, Chicago is a bigger media market and the Kane/Toewes pair is second only to the Pens in terms of league publicity.

    I just want the Kings to take it at this point, hopefully inflicting the physical punishment that Chicago so rightly deserves.

    Hey at least there's a shot the Caps win a series next year, and I'm not joking. My brother is a Lions fan who honestly thinks they're going to make it to the SuperBowl every year, so a few Caps wins isn't exactly delusional on my scale lol

    Did I mention how much I HATE Cindy Crysby?? My gosh, going after a goalie then being dumb enough to mouth off to one of the biggest players the NHL has ever seen... If Chara had lost his cool and did what he perhaps should have, Crosby's career would have surly ended tonight.

    I'm guessing it's at least 8, and that's because they didn't iso-cam him during the handshake line, so either he was crying too much for Pierre to bear or a cameraman is now looking for a job for revolting against the Nothing But Crosby Sports Network.

    LMAO!! Sydney and his girls had nothing!! But like I've always said to anyone who would listen , a HOT goaltender can carry you to The Cup (JQuick last year)and Tuukka Rask looks to be going that way!! An Original Six Finals matchup is fine with me!! Thats if Chicago wins as they are up 3-1!!!
