It should be noted that I’m just going for the easy punchline with Al….but I’ve always kind of liked the guy. I know some of you have some legendary Stensland stories from over the years….but it’s tough to be down on a guy that works for a fire department for his day job.
Tweets from Bob McKenzie this evening:
“I think we can all agree the missed offside that led to COL goal today was a horrendous mistake by the linesman. No doubt about that, but…FWIW, linesman who missed call is one of NHL’s most experienced, accomplished, respected officials. Bad call, yes. Bad official? No way. Linesman obviously was aware Duchene preceded puck over blueline but mistakenly believed NSH, not COL, played puck into zone.”
