At 1:44 of the first period in the Avalanche/Blackhawks game, the NHL Situation Room initiated a review to further exam a play at the Avalanche net. The referee determined that he had whistled the play dead once Colorado goaltender Semyon Varlamov had secured the puck under his goalie pad. This is not a reviewable play therefore the call on the ice stands.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
