No lineup changes for Detroit tonight.

Dallas goes with Alex Auld in net. That's all I've got.

That's disappointing. Correctly, catmandu says you can only expect so many saves before you have to clear the puck.

Hit on Abdelkader looked worse than it was. I'm torn on the call.

I've only been paying half attention to the game so I just realized how empty it was at the JLA. I'm kinda surprised.

Morrow threw his head back way late. The call should have been made before that but that was a bad fake.

You can't even use "intent to blow" as an excuse 'cause there was no reason to blow the play dead until after the puck was in the net. The puck was free before that.

That's the wrong call. 100% the wrong call.

Why do I have a feeling like that is probably going to cost the game? I hope that's not what happens, but I can't shake it.

"Auld makes sure this one stays outside."

Not that it matters.

At least Eriksson is on one of my fantasy teams?

You think I'm gonna recap tonight's game? Not a chance in hell.

"There is no goal. The whistle stopped play."

Here's the deal: The Dallas Stars played a fine game. I'm not willing to say they deserved to lose. They might have won anyway. The butterfly effect says that anything after Brad May's third-period no goal would have changed; we can't count on Dallas' late power play goal happening but it could mean the Stars would have scored three instead.

That doesn’t matter to me. My only concern is that calling off the goal was simply the wrong call. Absolutely, unequivocally wrong.

For those who don’t want to see it on YouTube, here’s the recap of the play:

Brad May gets the puck in front of the net and backhands it on goal. The puck slips between the post and Alex Auld’s pad to get into the net, where Auld pushed it against the inside of the goal.

No one sees that the puck is in the net until after play is blown dead, at which point the Wings begin celebrating. The team of officials confer and it looks like the “War Room” in Toronto phones in their thoughts.

"There is no goal. The whistle stopped play."

Yes, the whistle that came seconds after the puck was in the net stopped the play in time for the goal to not count.

We’ve seen the “intent to blow the whistle” bite the Wings in the ass before. Play is technically dead as soon as the official decides to blow play dead, not when the whistle actually blows.

That can’t apply here, though.

Leading up to the puck going into the net it was never covered up. The puck was live when May shot it and it was in play the entire way into the net. If the officials intended to blow play dead they would have been doing so in the middle of a shot.

"As dumb as I’ve ever seen."

That’s what the normally-reserved Mike Babcock called it. I dare anyone to put it more calmly.

This is the kind of play that gives credence to conspiracy theories. Either the official intended to blow the whistle in the middle of a play or he deliberately called a good goal back.

Neither is a scenario that I find acceptable in a supposed major sports league.

ref didn't want to look like a dummy by reversing call I guess. In the end he's more than a dummy. Seems like wings have these phantom take-away goals at least once a year that were clear goals. This has to be the worse I've seen in a while, second to the buffalo/flyers playoffs game where puck went in side of net and counted as a goal. League must change the way plays are called initially to allow some room for observation/video review. I'm still shaking my head at this "no goal", the puck went in the net, stayed in the net, before whistle ever was intended to be blown. To top it off Stars score later on a horrid erricsson penalty for making contact with player ever so slightly.
