I turned it off after the quick whistle screwed Nashville. Holy crapballs I'd be furious if I was a Preds fan.

I get that he lost sight of the puck, but that in and of itself is not a valid reason for blowing the whistle with four officials on the ice.

If they can, on a review, determine whether or not a player's actions prevented the goalie from being able to stop the puck, surely they can determine whether the whistle had any affect (i.e. is it reasonable to assume that the quick whistle did not make the goalie or defensemen stop trying to compete). Why did they even bother talking about it or reviewing it?

The whole mentality of "I lost sight of the puck therefore I must blow the play dead" had to go away. One of the four sets of eyes at ice level has to actually see the puck frozen to blow the play dead. If you don't see it, don't assume; get in a better position. Worst case, a review will show if the goalie had the puck frozen before someone dislodged it and put it on (Daley's goal).

Yeah, pretty much. I agree. Let someone who SEES it frozen blow it dead.
