NHL GMs call for change on goalie interference challenges

  NHL GMs call for change on goalie interference challenges The NHL could change its goaltender interference rules as soon as the playoffs that begin April 11. The league's general managers recommended shifting the decision on a coach's challenge for goalie interference from on-ice officials to the league's situation room in Toronto. The board of governors and NHL/NHL Players' Association competition committee must approve the change for it to go into effect.

Even so, the Predators seemed to score a goal that would send Tuesday’s game into overtime. Instead, it was waved off for goalie interference as the Panthers prevailed 2-1. Take a look at the would-be goal while we wait for the league’s typically nondescript reason why Filip Forsberg‘s tally

*You know when Carrie Underwood is livid about goalie interference in the NHL that something really has to change about it. *Eric Francis checks in with an appropriate rip job on a Calgary Flames team that has really underwhelmed this season despite all their young talent.

Look, the Nashville Predators are probably still going to win the Central Division, and the Florida Panthers face long odds to ride tonight’s regulation victory to a playoff spot out East.

NHL change to goaltender interference reviews begins now

  NHL change to goaltender interference reviews begins now A change to the NHL's protocol for goaltender interference reviews is happening quicker than expected. Beginning with games on Wednesday, all coach's challenges for goaltender interference will be decided by the league's situation room in Toronto instead of on-ice officials getting the final say. The NHL board of governors approved the change Tuesday that was recommended by general managers and approved by the competition committee.The original intent was to change the policy beginning for the playoffs.

— Carrie Underwood (@ carrieunderwood ) April 4, 2018. Carrie speaks all of us, even though she might be a little bias, doesn’t she? One more thing @NHL , when the goalie who lets the tying goal in, in the last second, falls down in disgust at himself, and doesn’t protest??? probably not goalie

'I am livid ': Carrie Underwood hits out at NHL in a series of tweets after her husband's team loses Underwood went on to tweet that she was ' livid ' and demanded the National Hockey League fix it. Officials said Predators' Viktor Arvidsson's stick hit Panthers' goalie Roberto Loungo causing him to

Search the Internet and you’ll find plenty of race on this goal, even by “goalie interference infuriates all hockey fans at some point” standards. In fact, Carrie Underwood couldn’t help but chime in. She might be a little biased considering the fact that she’s married to Predators center Mike Fisher, but still.

(This would be a good time to reference one of her songs. Should Gary Bettman worry about his car getting keyed?)

Kiefer Sutherland shared a similar sentiment, prompting thoughts of Solid Snake infiltrating “the war room” in Toronto for answers.*

Carrie Underwood Is ‘Seriously Livid’ After Interference Call at NHL Game

  Carrie Underwood Is ‘Seriously Livid’ After Interference Call at NHL Game Carrie Underwood found herself searching for the poop emoji after the Nashville Predators vs. Florida Panthers game on Tuesday, April 3. The 35-year-old country singer, who is married to Predators player Mike Fisher, took to Twitter to express her anger with the NHL after officials disallowed Filip Forsberg’s would-be tying goal due to a goalie […]The 35-year-old country singer, who is married to Predators player Mike Fisher, took to Twitter to express her anger with the NHL after officials disallowed Filip Forsberg’s would-be tying goal due to a goalie interference. The controversial call, which was made with 0.6 seconds left in the game, resulted in the Panthers’ 2-1 win over the Predators.

Carrie Underwood is not happy. The country megastar joined outraged hockey fans online by calling out what they think was a bad call by National Hockey League referees Tuesday (April 3) at the Nashville Predators’ game against the Florida Panthers. A ref cited “goaltender interference ” after

Carrie Underwood is a favorite celebrity of many, but she is more than just a great singer. Underwood has a long history of being unashamed of her faith that includes singing “How Great “Mike and I talk about teaching him how to approach everybody in a loving way, even if they’re not the

* – A “24” reference would have been more understandable, but “Metal Gear Solid V” deserves a plug.

To be fair to Underwood, she’s far from alone in being flabbergasted by the call.

Forsberg voices an opinion seem to hold: that there’s a lack of clarity regarding what is or is not goalie interference.

“Either the refs don’t know or Toronto doesn’t know,” Forsberg said, via the Tennessean’s Adam Vingan. “They’re definitely not on the same page.”

Regardless, the Winnipeg Jets still have an outside chance at winning the Central, as they trail Nashville by three standings points as both teams have two games left.

Even Jack Bauer thinks the Predators were robbed on a goalie interference call with 0.6 seconds left

  Even Jack Bauer thinks the Predators were robbed on a goalie interference call with 0.6 seconds left It appeared the Nashville Predators tied the Florida Panthers with 0.6 seconds remaining in regulation on a Filip Forsberg goal. However, after review, officials ruled that Nashville’s Viktor Arvidsson interfered with Florida goalie Roberto Luongo, and the goal was waved off.Apparently this is goalie interference. Filip Forsberg ties things up with 0.5 remaining and after review it gets called off after being called a good goal on the ice. #Predspic.twitter.

The official twitter account for Carrie Underwood . I know right! It want even close to interference . These refs just wanted to go home. В ответ @ carrieunderwood @PredsNHL. Can't jam at a goalie 's pad, causing him to move, thus dislodging the puck as a direct result.

— Carrie Underwood (@ carrieunderwood ) April 4, 2018. Underwood ’s husband unsurprisingly agreed with his wife, and made his thoughts known on Twitter. At this point, there have been too many goaltender interference calls to count. Hopefully for Underwood and the rest of Preds nation, it

Again, it’s not likely that the Jets will take it. That said, it’s worth monitoring, as the winner of the Central will hold home-ice through at least the West playoffs, and might win the Presidents’ Trophy. So there’s a worst-case scenario beyond the NHL drawing Underwood’s ire.

It’s probably a bigger deal that the Panthers won, although they still will need quite a bit of good fortune to earn a playoff bid.

Elsewhere in the East, the Blue Jackets rallied for a 5-4 overtime win against the Red Wings. The Devils also took care of business, beating the Rangers 5-2. The Flyers almost managed a rally like Columbus, yet Mathew Barzal‘s second goal of the night proved to be the spoiler as the Islanders won in regulation.

Overall, it’s still gloomy for the Panthers, who might actually need to cross their fingers that the Flyers slip after seemingly being focused on the Devils. Here’s an updated look:

Third Metro spot: Blue Jackets, 96 points, 2 games remaining, 39 ROW

First WC: Devils, 95 points, 2 GR, 38 ROW

Second WC: Flyers, 94 points, 2 GR, 38 ROW

Panthers, ninth place: 90 points, 3 GR, 38 ROW

The Panthers face the Bruins twice to close out the season with a game against the Sabres sandwiched in between. If they won all three of those games, they’d max out at 96 standings points, so you can see how slim their odds might be.

Still, their hope is alive after Tuesday, and some might argue that they can partially thank the NHL’s polarizing process for that.

Update: Hey, credit the league for at least going a little more in-depth with their explanation:
