  3. the disgrace of dan ohallorans non interference call does such an injustustice to the players, the fans of new york and the overall trust in the nhl, one of the most critcal times of the game, to oversee and review and reverse an obvious ohalloran wrong call nhl should be held accountable,but guess what dan ohalloran doesnt care hes just a ref, he has no clue and he is not a hockey player shame on you ohalloran time to retire hope you live through new york

    • Completely agree!! No excuse for this. Referees need to be held acocuntable just as the athletes are. 2 blown calls, the interference and the no delay of game which led to the goal. The puck clearly did not hit the glass and they did not bother to huddle and discuss either call.

  4. Refs job be consistent, get it right and be in place to make the call.
    Its a tough job but you hurt the game when you don’t.

  5. 75 years ago Art Ross said it: you’re trusting the integrity of the game to one man, and no player in the league is as important to the game being taken seriously as is the referee.
