Not sure if he agreed with it. He said he was "okay with it." It's a subtle difference.

When you let four in on a PK, it's not all on the refs.

He said that’s the call he would make in that situation.

No, but the simple fact remains if the officials don't make that egregious mistake this series is over in the Knights' favour.

Refs don't have replay for that and they just saw a guy get driven head first into the ice. We all would probably make that call. We'd all be wrong, but we'd all call it.

Maybe. I also know that I don't care cuz I'm still watching hockey.

Can't have seen that as it didn't happen. He was not driven down. 

Agree Game 7 OT is the best.

Then why didn’t they call it on Stasney the one that drove him to the ice. They also didn’t even call it till they seen he was hurt.

I saw that too, they didn't call it until way after, it was BS, and the knights got majorly shafted, and nothing will happen subsequently because NHL

Incorrect.  They stymied the Sharks PP all night long.  They had to continue to do it.  If they didn't, it's on them.

Man that really sucks. Seeing a team get jobbed like that isn't fun if there's no rooting interest in it. Vegas should be moving on. Whatever I guess.

This ain't it. The situation never should have arisen.

Gallant pulled a Housley.

He should have called a time out.

If Eakin doesnt cross check him to go off balance Stastny doesnt push him down. So the cross check started the incident, correct call IMO.

So if your stick is caught between a guy's skates and he slips and gets concussed it's a major penalty? No.

Watch the play, the refs didn't even think of making a call until well after they notice him down.... It was high grade garbage. 

That's what I took most frustration with

Irrelevant. The point is that an injury arose from a 2 minute foul, max. Calling a major there is as arbitrary as awarding a double minor because there's blood.

The cross check alone is not what caused the injury. It was the cross check in combination with another player then running into Pavelski. How can Eakin be responsible for the incidental contact from Stastny that randomly caused an injury? It makes no logical sense.

To be fair, that was a pretty epic meltdown on the PK. It's not like you're guaranteed to get 4 goals on a 5 min major.

I agree. sure was fun, though.

And it wasn't the Sabres who got screwed.

And Vegas can suck it. They didn't deserve to be this good this fast anyway, oh, wait, the expansion fee.

Two wrongs don't make a right. Never been the case never will. 

I'm not arguing that the call was right, just that it's hockey, there's always bad calls, suck it up and kill the PK.
