FWIW, on sports radio in Wisconsin they said there was video released of both non-goals, and that the Zengerle "kick in" appeared to be a goal and not directed in with a kicking motion because he never saw the puck, which I'll take a pass on because it's a judgment call and whatever the ref decides is usually fine, and that the slap shot that "hit the post" actually hit the back of the net, which is sort of unforgivable. I assume radio personalities aren't making up bald faced lies.

Good to know the my, most of the people around me, and from the crowd's reaction- their eyes are all working fine. Maybe CCHA refs need expanded eyecare coverage in their health plans! :p

A comment on the replays/Wisconsin getting skrewed: With CCHA officiating crews and the CCHA requiring overhead replay capabilities in all their arenas (don't know about other conferences), plus the Scottrade Center having replay capabilities- idk why the NCAA doesn't require them to be used in a case like the tournament games.

I think it was a good tournament overall. The Friday-Saturday schedule was a little strange and from the comments online (this board and others) hard for people traveling to the tournament for the weekend. With the crowd size and Blues Home/Season Opener on Saturday it would have been better to hold things at the 10,000-seat Family Arena in suburban St. Charles. then 4,000-6,000 looks good, compared to that amount in a 19,000-seat building.

It's early in the season, but the two missed goals by the refs could have an impact later on...

So, for the record; here's the story:

the 'crossbar' was a goal. the kick was not a goal. i don't buy julie saying that because millan got a piece of it, that should be a goal since it wasn't kicked in. if it is kicked towards the net and goes in...it goes in because it was kicked towards the goal. if a goalie tries to stop it and doesn't, it was still ------ kicked in!

Agree with you on both of those, also the one UML "scored" in the 2009 HE Championship... still not a goal:p (I preffered the old smilies)

Agree that the "crossbar" shot was a goal. I still marvel how 4 guys, all within 50 or 60 feet of the net (and often one or two are quite a bit closer) who are trained and 2 of whom are instructed to keep their eyes on the puck all the time -- even blowing the play dead if the "lose sight of the puck" can miss so obvious a goal. My bad to think it was just sour grapes when in reality it was a bad call. Some nits with the blogger factually though. The CCHA DOES use replay, and hits from behind have been liable to be penalized with GMs for longer than just this season, and Johns was thrown out in the final period Friday, not the first. Are we on season 2 or 3 now of more stringent enforcement for hitting from behind? It's been a while now. As for the other goal in question, I agree that the officials made a proper judgment call.
