Another blown call costs Canucks big

Last night the NHL referees kept up their reputation of blowing calls when they mattered most. During the 3rd period the Canucks had thought they'd tied the game against the Tampa Bay Lightning but a trigger happy referee's decision ended up costing the Canucks.

After a shot on net wasn't cleanly handled by Andrei Vasilevskiy, Canucks' forward Connor Garland picked up the rebound and tucked the puck home, but the referee quickly blew the whistle and called the play dead.

This is just another example of the league's officials blowing another important call in a game when this could have made the difference. The Lightning went on to win the game 2-1.
