The linesman made a bad call. It should have been icing. That being said, that was way too close to the net for Swayman to not play it with :20 left. It would have been an easy play to McAvoy in the corner. Also, Forbort has to play the puck cleanly there. Play to the whistle and don’t assume the icing. They know how bad the officiating is in this league, they shouldn’t assume that the right call is going to happen all the time.

No reason for Sway to play that with 20secs left in a tie game. Icing sets them up for a chance to win the game, he plays that and they are going to OT. Forbort not handling it cleanly is unfortunate but linesman made an incredulous call and cost Bs at least 1 if not 2 points.

If Swayman plays it everyone is on him for not getting an offensive zone face off with :20 seconds left. And everyone would be correct. I agree about Forbort though. He needs to be 100% on the puck until the whistle blows.

Especially if the Coyotes find a way to run a play to score a goal off of that faceoff.

The biggest failure there (beyond the linesman) is Forbort.

The NHL is a laughingstock playing in this building. When we arrived they couldn’t read electronic tickets so we all had to wait in line to confirm our seats. Between periods we tried to walk around the mezzanine but they have Coors zone that you can’t enter so we had to walk all the way back around.

When the game ended there was some security person blocking exits forcing everyone to leave through a limited number of doors.

The people running the arena obviously have no capacity to handle things. Watch the one cop in the fight video. He stands there the whole time doing nothing while the situation escalates.

Here’s how Jack and Brick were setup.58740

It Was cool to watch the game in that size of a building but the operations need to improve.

I can’t get enough of the cop, dressed like he just came in from Fallujah, acting like he’s calling penalties waiting for his linesman to intervene.
