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.
The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
