NBC’s Olczyk weighs in on disallowed goal in Blackhawks-Red Wings game
NBC analyst Eddie Olczyk joined the show to talk about the Blackhawks’ overtime win over the Red Wings in Game 7 of their series last night.
Olczyk explained what happened in the final minutes when they disallowed a Chicago goal because of a penalty behind the play.
“I said it was,” Olczyk said. “On that particular play he thought there was a wrestling match going on.”
Olczyk said we want refs to be consistent and that ref thought he was in position to make the call.
Olczyk also commented on the Rangers firing John Tortorella. He said it was a combination of factors, probably starting with the team under-performing, and acknowledged his personality could have played into it.
