Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! If you were watching the Chicago Cubs win Game #5 in Washington D.C. last night, you missed an interesting call that in the end probably cost the Chicago Blackhawks at least one point.
The call in the middle of the third period still doesn’t make any sense to me. The play looked offsides to me with the player in the zone without possession of the puck, and even Steve Konroyd in the booth said this was an easy overturn. So here is a look at the play in question.
The play took forever to get replayed, and I still don’t get how the linesman only have a tablet to look at the play. All calls should go to Toronto if you ask me, but that is another argument for another day.
So the Call stands, and with the new rule the Chicago Blackhawks not only give up a goal, but they go directly to the penalty kill which the Wild promptly scored on, and basically iced the game at that point.

The Hawks sure were fun to watch those first few games, but I must say they do look a lot slower without Nick Schmaltz in the lineup. The Hawks are now 0-1-0 against the Central Division, and they have the Nashville Predators in town Saturday night and they will need more speed in the lineup on Saturday night.
It’s only one loss, but they need to turn somethings around quickly before Saturday, so here are some morning links to start your Friday morning.
