The St Louis Blues were screwed on a blown call by the officials during Game 3 of the Western Conference final that left everyone on their team upset. That included their GM, who let the referees hear it.

According to NHL.com reporter Lou Korac, Blues GM Doug Armstrong slammed his hand on the officials’ door and cursed, calling them/their mistake “garbage.”

The San Jose Sharks won the game 5-4 on an overtime goal by Erik Karlsson. An illegal hand pass by the Sharks preceded the goal, but the refs missed it and did not blow the whistle to stop play as they should have. That call is not reviewable, so the goal was allowed to stand, giving San Jose the win.

Blues fan stands to win $100K on $400 wager with Stanley Cup win.
A St. Louis Blues fan who made a wager on the team winning the Stanley Cup when things were looking bleak earlier this season is in line for a huge payout should things come out in favor for both himself and his favorite NHL squad. Blues backer Scott Berry was in Las Vegas back in January for a business trip. With the team out of playoff contention at the time, Berry took a risk before leaving Sin City by wagering $400 on the Blues raising Lord Stanley’s Cup at season’s end at 250-1 odds, which would pay him out $100,000. He also placed a bet on the Cardinals winning the World Series. “I bet with the heart on this one,” Berry told ESPN.
