We mentioned earlier today that the late-game penalty awarded to Cole Caufield sparked a lot of discussion. It was a serious error by the referees, and it could have changed the outcome of the game.

Watch the sequence here:


This kind of poor decision is far too common, and at the end of the game, it's unforgivable. The game has become so fast that officials often only have time to see the result and not the action.


The NHL needs to find a way to help referees make fair judgments in late-game situations.

While the hockey community expresses outrage over such penalties (not just Canadiens fans), a media outlet in Minnesota outright asked its fans if it warranted a suspension.

Yes, you read that correctly. An incident that doesn't even merit a two-minute penalty, clearly visible, and the media outlet is questioning whether it deserves a suspension.

In the comments, let's just say people didn't hold back in expressing their thoughts. Sometimes Canadiens fans are considered intense, but this takes it to the height of absurdity.
