the War Room in Toronto not overturned the call on the ice of a non-goal by legendary thug Todd Bertuzzi. I would analyze how crappy the on-ice call and subsequent review was, but Jeff Little puts any analysis I would have to shame.
Seriously, check out Jeff's blog on this one.
Anyhoo, the Detroit Red Wings won, 3-2.
Other thoughts about the game:
1. There was a shot of the CBJ bench during the game, and I could not recognize most of the players sitting there. I know we've had a few call-ups from Syracuse, but it seemed like it was a totally different team. How Claude Noel's navigating this with anything close to a win, I have no idea.
2. One little thing Jeff Little forgot to mention: There were numerous reports (here's one) from those watching the Fox Sports Ohio broadcast that the closeup on Todd Bertuzzi after his questionable goal showed him telling a teammate on the bench, "I kicked it." Just sayin'.
3. For whatever it's worth, there still appears to be a self-perception gap with the Blue Jackets and the Red Wings. The Wings, on a tear going into the playoffs, played like they fully expected to win. The Jackets did not. I know, everything in time.....
