Did you catch the end of the Calgary Flames vs. Dallas Stars game? While most of the sports world was watching the overpriced Yankees win their 27th World Series in the overpriced Yankee Stadium, hockey fans were treated to an great game in Calgary. Unfortunately, the great game was marred by a horrible call in overtime that ended up costing the Stars the game.
After blowing the lead with 49 seconds left in regulation, the Stars entered the extra session trying to salvage the second point. Nicklas Grossman cleared the puck on a seemingly harmless looking play only to clear it into the stands. The officials (incorrectly) ruled that the clearing attempt occurred within the Stars zone–the automatic delay-of-game penalty was assessed to Grossman. Seconds later, Jarome Iginla does what he does best.
Here’s video of both the game winning goal and the play that cost the Stars the game.
Its a shame that such an exciting, fact-paced game will be remembered for a missed call in overtime.
