Sound Tigers are getting goals taken away from them again by the
officiating. Coudl it be an Islander curse or something. Those that
read Mike Fornabio's article would see how the 2 goals that were
taken away were legit goals.<<<
This was happening very early in the season for the Tigers, when
they started winning there were games the opposing coaches were
furious about goals officials allowed for Bridgeport. Now it's
turning back the other way again with the Tigers having goals
reversed. If a puck went in off someone's chest (as Cronin says) how
can that be disallowed?
I would not go as far to say the Isles are cursed with bad
officiating. At least Havlat was suspended today as he should have
been, the five minute powerplay the Isles should have gotten may have
won them a hockey game.
<<< Does the league fine these officals for making bone head mistakes
like this, as they did with Harry Dumas? Why does the offical not
confer with the linesman and the goal judge. After all this was a
road game, so why would the goal judge lie about the goal being in or
I'm sure the officials are evaulated, as are the off-ice people
Is there a replay system in the AHL? I don't think so. Which means
it all goes on the officials and goal judge and they miss so much.
