According to the rulebook, calling back the goal was the correct call.
The chatter here cracks me up. "Sorry, Michel, you can't ref in Montreal. You'll totally screw the opponent." "Sorry, Mickey, you can't ref in Boston. You'll totally screw the opponent." "Sorry, Karen. You can't ref in Vancouver..."
The goal was good imo, nobody was impeding Price from stopping the puck,as already mentioned why didn't the ref blow the play down for interference? If the play stayed in the Montreal end for another minute and then Tampa scored should the ref wave the goal off? Quebec ref officiating a Montreal game and there is a sketchy call,i've seen that movie too many times to be called coincidence,its likely the Mason's who are behind it.
Care to show us some examples of where the lopsidedness between a French or English referee doing Montreal games in the play-offs? I really would like to see where this is a fact, because for someone like myself that has a French Canadian background I find this insulting. Show me where you're actually getting this from with some proof & you know I'll be the 1st one to say I'm wrong. I know there's been lots of situations where things have gone Montreal's way, but I don't think there's that big of a discreptency to warrant this statement.
i'm not trying to say there is anything wrong with the french as a culture Nite,i just find Quebec born refs officiating a Scabs game to be questionable,imo.I'm sure there are many impartial refs that are from Quebec and they do an admirable job but over the years there have been many examples.I'm surprised that you ,having watched as many B's/Scabs games as you have haven't noticed this.Bad officiating isn't just a Quebecer reffing a Scab game though,bad refs come in any nationality.I have nothing against Quebecer's,great people, great culture.I just think when you are born and raised in Quebec and you ref a Scab game it sometimes gets overwhelming,if you know what i mean.Remember this is only my opinion.
