Karlsson, Sharks beat Blues 5-4 after controversial no-call

Karlsson, Sharks beat Blues 5-4 after controversial no-call Erik Karlsson scored 5:23 into overtime after the officials missed a hand pass by Timo Meier, and the San Jose Sharks rallied to beat the St. Louis Blues 5-4 to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference final. Meier used his right hand to knock a loose puck toward the front of the net. Gustav Nyquist then passed it over to Karlsson, who beat Jordan Binnington for his second goal of the game. BOX SCORE: SHARKS 5, BLUES 4 (OT) Binnington and the Blues complained immediately about Meier's pass. The officials huddled while Karlsson and the Sharks celebrated, but the play wasn't reviewable and the goal stood. Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Friday night in St. Louis.

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.
