Niedermayers to the rescue

2007 Western Conference Final - Game 2
Ducks 4, Red Wings 3 (OT)
Series tied 1-1

The Anaheim Ducks needed video review to confirm goals a couple of times Sunday night, but everybody in Joe Louis Arena in Detroit could see clearly when Scott Niedermayer scored the overtime winner for the visitors last night.

Niedermayer scored with 5 minutes 43 seconds remaining in the first extra period to give the Ducks a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the Detroit Red Wings after the Ducks had sustained pressure in the Wings' zone.

Ok, is it just me or are the rest of you getting tired of all the replays after anyone raises a stick in celebration of a purported "goal?"

Lets just eliminate the linesman (it would open up the ice), and the boys can always police themselves after a skirmish, if not just go to the video for infractions. Make the referee make only the judgement call on to review or not review, all other calls come from the booth in Toronto. Kind of like watching inmates in the "yard."

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ, can we just get on with the game. Errors and missed calls are a part of the game, period.

Sure, reviewing penalties instead of goals makes a lot of sense.

They could probably just decide close scoring plays with a coin flip and save you a few minutes for further brilliant brainstorms.

I think this series is going to 7 games. Two very good defencive teams.

Oddly, I thought the Wings played better in their loss. Exciting game. We've definitely reached the point where I'll be unhappy if Detroit loses, but the season has to be considered a success even if they do.

My attempt at sarcarsm was obviously wasted on one Earl Sleek..... One thing that cannot be denied is that the owners are missing out on some prime dollar seats by continuing to accomodate the goal judges...coin flip? Can I get odds in Vegas?

Sorry for the mix-up. Your first comment seemed sincere enough.
