Looks like this controversial game is getting national coverage. Saw this pop up on my twitter feed this morning. BarDown's twitter has 96.7K followers. Looks like a big black eye for NL Senior Hockey and Hockey NL.

If you look at the picture before you start the video you will see the problem. What is missing from the picture is the ref! He is not in the frame thus there is no way he could see the puck go under the bar from the other corner. Also note in the video that most of the Caribou players also didn't see what happened as they are turning to head back to the bench. Only Churchill and the left defenseman seem to have seen the puck go under the bar.

HNL are already the laughing stock of NL, just as well share it with everyone else. Hopefully the comments by that certain hnl member on Friday night can get the same attention too

Oh just a fan

Over the years of coaching hockey and being away with teams, I've heard first hand other orginzations refer to HNL as HaNL.
And if you think that Hollet going to talk to the other official "Orr" and him changing the call is ever going to happen then you're out to lunch. Orr's a bigger crook and the worst homer ref on the island.

I don't know Hollet or Orr, but calling someone a crook on a public form could land you in hot water. But, I'm sure most will agree with your hnl comment, HaNL...., it just never seems to end

And if those comments were made, I hope that person gets taken to task aswell. imo, that's worse then the blown call.

There is no way that Linesman never saw that play. I know he can't call a goal off but he could have related to the ref what he saw if he was consulted.
