Its just poor refereeing plain and simple.. for the sake of having a neutral ref; this one is from denmark??? or sth you end up having a poor ref. The free kick in the box was from the goalie holding the ball too long... i guess its a rule and hard to argue its not a legitimate call then..just sucks...it sounds like sth a more experienced ref would probably let go.

no.

2 15 min periods, if still tied/no goals, then penalty kicks.


So they play the full 30 minutes? It's not sudden death overtime?

CTV showed a "War of 1812" commemorative stamps ad during the CAN/USA Women's Soccer Game. If that war had these refs we'd be a State.

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

Man, I hate to be the guy with the bad news here, but the call was actually correct...

If you're the goalie, you can only hold the ball for around 8 or so seconds before kicking it. You can't delay the game like the Canadian keeper did. Not sure why the canadian broadcasting crew was making it seem like the penalty was for holding the ball outside the box. It was terrible timing, but TBH the correct call (played soccer for quite a while).

But no matter what, GO CANADA :)

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

British commentators came up with the same conclusion that the Canadian ones did then, because they couldn't stop stressing how harsh the call was.
