Blackhawks coach disagrees with disallowed goal

32 Comments

Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville disagreed with Andrew Shaw’s disallowed 2-2 goal from the third period of Game 3. The Chicago Sun-Times’ Mark Lazerus passes his comments along:

“We hit the wall when they disallowed the goal,” Quenneville said. “I disagree with the call. [He] didn’t touch the goalie.”

Then again, maybe the nature of the call is part of the question.

Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford was at the other end of the ice, but he commented that it was the first time he’s seen an “inside the crease” call since 2000. (Note that Crawford was speaking from his own perspective, not from a league-wide one.)

While it’s clear that the Blackhawks were upset about that disallowed goal either way, many believe that Patrick Kane’s 2-1 goal shouldn’t have counted. So some might argue that the tough beats can go both ways.
